Cosmetic plastic surgery employs many techniques individualized to each patient’s unique anatomy and areas of concern. Aging can damage the texture, color, and elasticity of the skin, causing wrinkles, brown spots, redness and laxity of facial skin. The fat underneath the skin shrinks with age causing the brows, eyes, and cheeks to become more hollow. The underlying facial muscles and connective tissues loosen causing heavy brows, sunken upper and lower eyelids, jowls and excess skin and fat in the neck.
Each patient’s rejuvenation goals are the starting point for a discussion regarding possible surgical and non-surgical interventions. Many techniques are often used together to address each component of the aging face in an effort to produce a natural harmonious result while minimizing cost, risk, and recovery time.
