Let’s face it: No one wants to look old, rundown, and tired — and thanks to facial plastic surgery, you no longer have to.
A youthful facial appearance depends on a combination of factors:
A firm jawline, plump cheeks, firm facial skin, vibrant eyes, and naturally elevated eyebrows are features that lend themselves to a youthful appearance. When your facial skin begins to sag, your cheeks become hollow, and your eyes take on a sunken, tired appearance, it’s difficult to feel vibrant and youthful.
Fortunately, facial plastic surgery enables skilled surgeons like ours at Southern ENT Associates to turn back the hands of time and restore a more youthful appearance so you look as young and vibrant as you feel. Read on as our team shares how facial plastic surgery provides youth-restoring benefits.
At Southern ENT, we have extensive experience and training in facial plastic surgery. Armed with the secrets to a youthful face, our surgeons use the latest aesthetic surgery techniques to reproduce the key elements of a youthful face.
Here are a few of the types of cosmetic facial surgeries we perform at Southern ENT.
Sagging facial skin is one of the main reasons that your face starts to look older as you age. Two age-related changes — decreased collagen and reduced facial fat — are responsible for sagging facial skin.
Collagen is a vital protein that gives skin its elasticity, enabling it to maintain its structure. Facial fat gives your face volume so your facial features appear supple and youthful. As you age and collagen and facial fat decline, your skin can sag, resulting in deep wrinkles and loose skin.
Face-lift surgery is the gold standard in restoring a youthful face. During this procedure, we lift and reposition facial tissue, remove excess skin, and reshape your facial contour, restoring a more youthful appearance. The lifting and tightening smooths your skin and leaves you looking years, or even decades, younger.
Your surgeon at Southern ENT may recommend face-lift surgery if you have sagging skin on your face or neck that’s making you look older than you feel.
Droopy eyelids can make you to appear aged and tired and can even interfere with your vision. These sagging eyelids are a major reason why some people choose blepharoplasty, an eyelid surgery that removes and tightens excess eyelid skin to give your eyes a bright appearance.
As part of the procedure, we may remove fat or muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Our surgeons use their extensive training and knowledge to determine the approach that will produce the best aesthetic results.
Along with your eyes, your forehead plays a key role in communicating your emotions. As you age, a sagging, heavy brow can give the wrong impression about how you feel, leaving you looking older with an angry, disgruntled appearance — even when you’re happy.
A brow lift may be the answer. Say goodbye to the saggy, wrinkled forehead you see when you look in the mirror.
Often called a forehead lift, a brow lift can rejuvenate your face. The procedure involves removing sagging and excess skin from your forehead and repositioning underlying muscles and tissues to restore your youthful look. Following brow lift surgery, our patients’ faces appear brighter, naturally alert, and more refreshed.
These are just a few ways our team of surgeons use facial plastic surgery to turn back the clock and give you back the youthful appearance you once enjoyed.
