Putting Your Best Face Forward With a Facelift

facelift

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I help my patients address the signs of facial aging on a daily basis. As plastic surgeons, we have many tools in our toolbox, so-to-speak, to help slow down, and in some cases, turn back the aging process… at least for a while.  While botox and fillers may be right for the younger patient trying to hide subtle changes of aging, chemical peels may do better for the next level of patients. And for those with finer lines and wrinkles, a facelift is a worthy option to explore. Specific situations where a facelift is a… Read More

Five Ways to Accentuate the Appearance of Your Brow Lift

Four Injectables That Slow Down the Aging Process

injectables

Anti-aging injections or “injectables” offer a minimally invasive solution to wrinkled and creased skin, shallow facial contours, thin lips, recessed scars, sagging eyelids, and more. Some injectables that are referred to as dermal fillers essentially restore plumpness, volume, and youth to the face. Who Needs Anti-Wrinkle Injectables? I generally recommend injectables to adults who have lost some of their skin’s elasticity. As we age, we naturally lose collagen in the skin. In turn, that bouncy, plump appearance of youth can be lost. Many factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and overall lifestyle can also influence a patient’s need for injectables…. Read More
