Why Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures Gives You a More Complete Solution
Everyone wants to look their best. This is a simple fact of life. How you achieve that is up to you. Plastic surgery is an extremely popular option that millions of people opt for every year. Reasons for electing to undergo plastic surgery vary from person to person. It’s safe to say many people want to look younger. You may also have certain aspects of your features that you’d like to alter. Perhaps you’d like your nose to be less prominent. Maybe you want some other feature more accentuated.
Whatever your individual goals, speak with your plastic surgeon. You may find that actually opting for multiple procedures can offer you the complete solution and be more beneficial to you than only having one procedure done. For example, facelifts and neck lifts are often performed together because of how complementary they are to one another. Here are some common plastic surgery procedures and related cosmetic services that you may want to combine to achieve the look that you’re after.
The facelift is the most well-known and one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the world. It’s also one of the oldest, dating back to the early 20th century. Facelifts have changed over time, obviously, becoming more refined and minimally invasive. In this procedure, the skin is lifted away from the muscle and fat. Excess fat is removed and the skin is brought back to create a more taut appearance. This tightened skin smooths out wrinkles and drooping, providing you with a more youthful appearance.
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure. Many people choose to get eyelid lift surgery because the first and most prominent place we tend to show our age is around the eyes. This makes sense when you consider how delicate our eyelids are, along with how facial expressions tend to involve the skin around our eyes. Both upper and lower eyelids can be treated to make you look more alert, well rested, and generally in a more energized disposition. It can also shave a few years off appearance wise.
Rhinoplasty, or the nose job, if you prefer, is another one of the most common aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures performed. Nasal surgery is one of the procedures that is performed for reasons that have nothing to do with how you’d like to look. Make no mistake, rhinoplasty can dramatically improve the appearance of your nose and balance out your features. However, it’s also performed for medical purposes, like in the case of trying to correct a deviated septum which can cause a variety of breathing problems.
Laser treatments come in a variety of different styles depending on what specifically is being treated. They are excellent for getting rid of signs or aging or blemishes. Scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and loose skin all respond well to laser treatment. It can also be used in a peel, helping you remove layers of sun damaged skin. Skin discoloration, sun spots, and even broken blood vessels can be successfully treated with a laser micropeel.
Botox & Fillers
Botox and fillers are great treatments for people who would prefer not to undergo plastic surgery or those who want to complement their procedures. Injectables are very popular because they are minimally invasive. One small pinch and you’re done. Botox works by paralyzing the muscle temporarily so that it doesn’t cause the skin to move when in motion. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers plump up the treated areas to give a more full and youthful appearance. As we get older, the fat in our faces diminishes or moves, which allows fine lines to appear along with a hollower appearance. Fillers help reverse this.
Cosmetic treatments are what you make of them. They can be as transformative as you’d like them to be. Some people prefer to just have one procedure done and enjoy the results. That’s certainly fine. Many people are quite happy following rhinoplasty or a face lift. However, to get the most out of your treatment, multiple procedures may be best. Combining different types of plastic surgery can help you achieve the youthful and rejuvenated appearance that you’re looking for. Everyone’s needs and desires are different. That’s why you should speak with your doctor about what you’re hoping to accomplish and how that would be possible. If you’d like to schedule a consultation, book an appointment online with us today.
