Facial plastic surgery is an option for men and women who want to treat certain signs of aging caused by loss of skin elasticity, muscular weakening, and gravity. Depending on the specific issues that need to be addressed, a plastic surgeon will recommend certain procedures to treat those issues.
The following is a general guide to the types of surgical treatments that may be recommended as they relate to specific signs of aging:
Signs of Aging
Facial Plastic Surgery Treatments
|Forehead frown lines||A temporal lift, or mini facelift, may be used to treat forehead wrinkles and small lines around the eyes. The procedure involves placing incisions in the hairline near the temples and lifting the facial skin diagonally up and away from the mid-face area.|
|Excess skin on upper eyelids and/or puffy bags on lower eyelids||Blepharoplasty can treat heavy-looking brows and drooping skin from around the upper and lower eyelids by removing excess skin and fatty tissue.|
|Nasolabial folds or “laugh lines”||A deep plane facelift, which involves removal of excess skin and repositioning of facial muscles, can tighten the mid-face area and help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds.|
|Formation of a “double chin”||Chin liposuction may be used to treat excess fat in the chin, but a facelift may be used to concurrently address sagging neck skin.|
|Jowls and excess neck fat||Neck liposuction may be used to remove fat on a patient with suitable skin elasticity. A traditional-style face lift may also be recommended to get rid of excess skin, while an S-lift may be used to treat mild to moderate sagging along the jaw line and neck.|
