The aging process of the face varies from person to person. The main causes are changes in bone density, loss or displacement of fat and the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Anti-aging prevention, minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments, and surgical procedures can be your key to lessening the signs of aging. While some factors, like bone changes, can’t be prevented, others like fat, collagen and elastin loss can be minimized. Lifestyle choices like diet and sun exposure can impact how quickly these factors come into play.
The injectable revolution is a driving force behind the increase in noninvasive cosmetic treatments, and advancements in the use of injectables have come a long way in preventing and reversing the visible signs of aging, with or without surgery. Today, doctors have a better understanding of what causes facial aging, and are able to address signs of aging like nasolabial folds, volume loss and deep facial lines or wrinkles to provide better results using injectable solutions like Botox® or Xeomin®, hyaluronic acid fillers, collagen-based stimulators and fillers.
Patients seeking permanent solutions to facial aging may choose a brow/forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or facial implants (ePTFE) to fill the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Additionally, patients may choose surgeries such as ear pinning and chin augmentation to help boost their self-esteem and address concerns that may have plagued them for years.
To learn if non-surgical, surgical, or a combination of these facial procedures is right for you, contact our practice to schedule your appointment with Dr. Singer. Here you can share your goals, get your questions answered, and learn about options customized for you!
Is eye makeup hard to put on now? Is it hard to see without lifting your forehead? Do you not even realize that you are lifting your forehead? Are there bags under your eyes that refuse to go away? The reduced elasticity of eyelid skin and tissue over time causes these symptoms. These symptoms can also occur at a younger age if you have the misfortune of having inherited poor tissue tone.
Have a receding chin? Longing for that perfect silhouette? Some of us don’t have perfect chins. They can be “weak” and blend right into the neck. If that’s the case, consider Chin Augmentation. The result from Chin Augmentation is a longer, more natural looking face line, and often a longer looking neck. Chin Augmentation is a procedure designed to extend and round the chin.
The aging process of the face varies from person to person. The main causes are changes in bone density, loss or displacement of fat and the break down of collagen and elastin. Anti-aging prevention, minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments, and surgical procedures can be your key to lessening the signs of aging. While some factors, like bone changes, can’t be prevented.
Want to get rid of those frown lines or lines across the forehead, or crow’s feet? Do your eyes feel heavy? Do people say you look tired, even when you’re not? Sometimes it’s stress, sometimes age. In any of these cases, your face no longer expresses your true inner spirit. When that happens, a Forehead Lift might be just the lift you need!
EAR PINNING (OTOPLASTY)
Do your ears protrude farther than you want from the sides of your head? Ready for ears that lie flat against your head? Ear pinning will have them appearing normal again. Ear pinning, or more technically, Otoplasty, is a procedure whose purpose is to create ears with normal folds and normal protrusion. It’s accomplished by making incisions on the back of the ear.
ePTFE FACIAL IMPLANTS
As we age, our collagen production diminishes, allowing certain areas to begin to sag, resulting in deep lines and creases. For years, women and men wishing to fill in those “age” lines around the nose and mouth had to resort to frequent and costly injections. Until recently, no permanent treatment was available for this condition, as even a full face lift is unable to correct the deep lines of the nasolabial fold or the so-called “smile lines,” or the lines from the mouth to chin, called “marionette lines.”
