Regain Your Youth with Plastic Surgery
We all want to feel good and look good for both inner and outer confidence. Plastic surgery is a great way to do this.
A facial rejuvenation procedure can refresh your look, giving you a youthful appearance. There are a number of cosmetic treatments you can choose, each targeting a different area of the face.
Facelift – The most common is perhaps the facelift, which removes and tightens the looser skin around the jowls, creating an all over youthful appearance. Similar to this is the neck lift, though this focuses specifically on the lower areas of the face.
Brow lift – A brow lift rejuvenates the upper third of the face, smoothing out forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
Mid-face lift – In this procedure, sagging skin on the cheekbones are tightened, also removing laugh lines from around the mouth.
Eye-lid – Also known by the official name Blepharoplasty, this procedure can be done for medical corrections, or for aesthetics. It can be used to treat dark circles under eyes, sagging eyelids, wrinkles on the lower eyelid, and more.
Chin augmentation – A chin augmentation can re-shape, enlarge, or reduce the size of your chin. Not only will it give more definition to the lower-half of your face, it can balance all of your facial features.
Facial implants – In order to improve and enhance certain facial features, implants can be surgically inserted. They can be made from human tissue, or synthetic material (i.e. silicone or polythene).
Plastic surgery is benefiting tremendously from advancements in technology. New generation of smart fractional erbium glass and cardion dioxide laser – This treatment differs from conventional lasers.
It is able to impact the skin without damaging the outer most epidermis. It can treat stretch marks, sun damage, wrinkles, early superficial skin cancers, and overall rejuvenate your skin. The smart fractional laser
preserves microscopic parts of the surrounding healthy tissue, allowing it to heal more effectively, with minimal recovery time. CPT-RF – Comfort Pulse Technology and Radio Frequency systems are great for dermal rejuvenation. They reduce the look of wrinkles by stimulating the formation of collagen. Other therapies including PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which can be used in conjunction with micro-fat grafting and CPT-RF treatment.
Dermal fillers can be synthetic or natural, using your own fat tissue as micro-fat grafting. The aim is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, add volume, and revitalise your skin. The fillers are safe, as their compound is similar to a sugar molecule already found in your body. For those unsure about the use of needles, it is best to check with your surgeon, as some fillers come with a local anaesthetic, making it a much more tolerable experience. The most common areas for this treatment include lines between the nose and mouth, lips for volume and shaping, cheeks, and those pesky frown lines.
Also referred to as body contouring, this term encompasses a range of procedures that can make you feel and look young again. Areas commonly targeted by body sculpting are wide-ranging, including face, neck, arms, breasts, stomach, back, and legs. Treatments include VASER liposuction (ultrasound), laser and radio frequency as discussed above, and even noninvasive cryolipolysis (freezing). There is no way to turn back the clock on ageing, and this is a good thing. These procedures are a simple way to freshen your appearance and make you look as young as you feel on the inside.
