Facial Rejuvenation And Skin Rejuvenation Through Plastic Surgery

Nov 5, 2007
Baggy eyelids are not necessarily a sign of aging. Due to heredity, many younger patients have puffiness under their eyes or a heavy fold of skin which obscures the normal crease of the upper lid. The lower lid bags are caused by fat that protrudes from under the eyelid skin. Redundancy of the skin may be more severe in the upper lids, thereby obscuring the natural crease. Sometimes this skin can interfere with vision. Eyelid Surgery also known as blepharoplasty removes this excess skin can accomplish two goals: improvement of vision and enhancement of appearance.

In some patients, the problem is exacerbated by drooping of the brow skin. In such cases, a brow lift is the procedure of choice. Plastic surgeons are now performing eyelid surgery with the CO2 laser. The incision for the lower lids is made on the inside of the eyelid leaving no visible scar. The skin is then refreshed with the laser to diminish the fine wrinkles.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery is usually performed at the same time under sedation. There is no need to be completely asleep for this type of surgery. Stitches dissolve within five to seven days.

This procedure is commonly performed in conjunction with a facelift operation. However, younger patients choose to improve their eyelids prior to the need for other facial surgery. Surgery Time is approximately two hours.

Sun exposure and the aging process cause changes in the face of the mature adult. These changes are a deepening crease between the nose and mouth, fatty deposits under the chin, and a loss of definition in the jawline. Laxity of the neck skin further exaggerates the aging appearance. A facelift can help

The deep plane lift is a layered approach that allows tightening of the interlacing network of connective tissues joining the facial muscles underneath the skin. This procedure provides a longer lasting and more favorable result compared to just tightening the skin. Fat is removed from under the chin through a small incision. This enhances the jawline and tightens the muscles in the neck.

The surgery takes about four hours to perform. Patients may elect to be entirely asleep or under sedation. Sutures are removed after seven days following the facelift.

A growing number of men and women are beginning to have facial surgery performed in their early forties rather than waiting for the effects of aging to become more dramatic.
Surgery Time is approximately four hours.
