Surgical Procedures to Address the Most Common Facial Aging Concerns

Many of us have areas of concern that we would like to address…specific areas on our bodies that we would like to change or improve in some way.  Perhaps they are so subtle that no one else would ever be able to notice them, but we are all too aware that they are there.  Many would be surprised to learn, however, that many people actually have quite a few of these areas in common.  The progression of facial aging typically follows a predictable course, and many patients come in seeking a way to address the same basic issues.  These facial cosmetic surgery procedures have proven to be the most popular ways to address these common signs of facial aging.

“Can you fix my nose?”

Facial Contouring and Implants at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, has long been the form of cosmetic facial plastic surgery most commonly performed in the United States, and is one of the few that is nearly as popular among men as it is among women.  Rhinoplasty is an extremely versatile procedure that can be used to address a variety of concerns, including a bridge that is too broad or has visible humps or depressions, overly wide or upturned nostrils, or even an enlarged, bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked tip.  Additionally, nose surgery may potentially improve overall nasal function by removing breathing obstructions or correcting deviations in the midline septum.

“Do I look tired?”

Over time, fatty deposits can build up in the upper and lower eyelids, making the eyes appear puffy, while the gradual loss of skin elasticity and volume can make the eyelids sag and droop.  Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is the next most commonly sought facial cosmetic surgery procedure.  Designed to remove excess skin and fat deposits from the area while subtly tightening the underlying muscle and tissue, blepharoplasty can make the eyes appear wider and more rested and greatly contribute to a generally more youthful visage.

“Can you take care of all these wrinkles?”

Many patients who are beginning to see serious sagging in the facial features turn to a full facelift to give them a more refreshed and rejuvenated look.  Modern facelift techniques carefully tighten the underlying facial muscles while removing excess skin, lifting and firming without giving the patient a stretched or unnatural appearance.  Moreover, mini-facelift procedures can target specific areas of the face, providing customized plastic surgery results with less surgical downtime while fat transfer techniques and cosmetic injectables can provide similar, albeit temporary, results with no surgery at all.
