Each person’s face ages differently. Some patients may seek complete rejuvenation while others choose minimally invasive treatments to address targeted areas. Younger patients often begin non-surgical procedures to treat early, minor signs of aging. Since facial and skin concerns range from wrinkles and fine lines to lax skin and muscle, the highly skilled plastic surgeons of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. offer various surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation procedures to treat patients of any age and any facial aging concerns.
For patients with advanced signs of aging, surgical procedures such as facelift and browlift tighten lax skin and smooth wrinkles and folds. During facelift surgery, excess fat and skin are removed and muscles will be tightened. In some instances, facial tissue and fat can be repositioned to fill areas of lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Patients who are only concerned with certain areas of the face can opt for a mini facelift, which can tighten skin located in the upper, mid, or lower part of the face specifically. In addition to the face, another area inclined to sagging skin is the neck. Necklift surgery tightens skin on the neck and jowls to reduce a “waddle” appearance.
To address certain facial concerns such as tired eyes, Atlanta Plastic Surgery offers specific eye rejuvenation procedures. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) corrects drooping eyelids that may affect a patient’s normal vision and removes fat deposits below the eyes that contribute to a tired appearance. Eyes are a common area of concern because they are one of the first areas to exhibit signs of aging. This procedure can often be combined with other facial procedures for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.
Patients with minor skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots can benefit from minimally invasive treatments. Cosmetic injectables such as Botox® and Restylane® smooth out wrinkles and lines. Facial fillers also restore lost volume in areas such as the cheeks and mouth. For surface concerns such as sun spots and scars, non-surgical treatments such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing rejuvenate skin and encourage collagen growth. Atlanta Plastic Surgery’s latest non-surgical addition, Sciton® Erbium laser, addresses various skin conditions with minimal downtime.
New advancements in technology have extended options for non-surgical rejuvenation. Ulthera® skin tightening, also known as the “non-surgical necklift,” uses the power of ultrasound technology to induce the body’s healing response to tighten lax skin under the chin and also along the brow. Atlanta Plastic Surgery continues to trial new technology to provide more options for their patients.
