Achieving firmer, more youthful-looking skin is more accessible than ever before. With the advancements that have occurred in the field of dermatology and aesthetic medicine, you can rest assured that you’ll find a solution that makes you feel comfortable with the procedure itself and can give you the results you desire.
Let’s delve into some of the surgical and non-surgical skin rejuvenation options that are available from Dr. Darren McKeown, including procedures like chin and neck microliposuction.
You can learn more about this option at https://www.drdarrenmckeown.com/chin-neck-microliposuction/.
1. Lower Face and Neck Lift
This procedure involves carefully placed incisions around the ears, starting at the hairline and following the curve before your ear. Then, the skin is lifted over your cheek and neck area. The muscle layer is then lifted and tightened. The skin is then re-draped. Excess tissue is removed from the skin; the rest is gently stitched back together. If you have excess fat in your neck area, a liposuction may be performed under your chin. The main impact of a lower face and neck lift is on the jawline and neck, where the jowls and neckline are improved.
2. Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
Heavy upper eyelids concern many people as they tend to give away a person’s age or give a sleepy, droopy appearance. Aside from the aesthetic issue, excess hooding of the eyelids also has a functional disadvantage because it can make eye makeup more difficult to apply. An upper lid blepharoplasty is a type of surgery that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from the eyelids. Final results are visible within 4 to 6 weeks after the surgery and the effects can last between five years to a lifetime!
Ultherapy is an innovative non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin, which results in a natural lift and toning of sagging skin. This procedure requires no downtime and patients see a gradual but noticeable improvement in elasticity and skin firmness.
2. Silhouette Soft
Silhouette Soft is a minimally invasive facelift procedure that lifts sagging skin with the use of threads that gently lift the skin so that it has an instantly firmer and more youthful appearance. The threads will dissolve naturally over time and they stimulate their own production of collagen. What’s more, is that the effects can last as long as 18 months!
3. Dermal Fillers and Botox
If you’re looking for a fast, painless way to get youthful, bouncy skin back, then you can’t go wrong with dermal fillers or Botox injections. By strategically placing dermal fillers, volume is brought back to the face while Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful look. Depending on where it was applied, the results of dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months while Botox tends to fade after 3 to 4 months.
Combining Surgical with Non-Surgical: A Holistic Option
If you have more advanced signs of aging or have too much skin looseness, you can get amazing results with a combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments. A lot of people choose the surgery option to fix major issues and then do maintenance using non-surgical treatments. This all-in-one approach lets you tailor solutions, fix specific areas of concern, and get natural-looking, lasting results.
For example, a lot of people think there is such a thing as a full facelift while it is in fact a combination of procedures. These procedures may be performed simultaneously or, more often, over a period of time. The type of treatment will depend on the patient and their unique concerns, but it usually involves a mix of surgery, non-surgical treatments, and some laser methods to get the best results.
