Facial Rejuvenation: A Fast Growing Area of Cosmetic Surgery
At my facial rejuvenation clinic in Vancouver, I see a significant number of patients looking for cosmetic procedures to help improve the appearance of various facial imperfections including fine lines and wrinkles. Many of them wish to correct these problems with nonsurgical procedures such as injectable fillers and BOTOXÂ® Cosmetic. I also recommend a range of surgical options for people who are looking for more permanent results. More men and women are turning to cosmetic procedures in part because of the advances in technology, and the accuracy of new techniques and treatments. Â
Surgical Facial Cosmetic Procedures
Men and women choose surgical facial cosmetic procedures when they want to permanently contour or enhance the structure of their faces. A popular trend among people who want to combine procedures is fat injections. The fat is extracted from an area of the body using liposuction, and then my Vancouver patients have the fat re-transplanted into an area of the face that has lost volume. This procedure has the dual benefit of reducing areas of unwanted fat and creating a more youthful facial contour.
For people with signs of aging along the jowl and neck, I will often recommend a facelift. Vancouver residents often want their physical appearance to reflect their healthy and active lifestyles. Facelifts provide a solution for men and women who experience loose or sagging skin around the bottom portion of the face. This procedure is gaining popularity because it provides the lasting results that people desire.
One of the other procedures I commonly perform is nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty. This allows people to easily improve the contour of their noses, and increase overall facial symmetry. Several techniques may be used to improve the appearance of the nose and to help a patient breathe more easily.
Nonsurgical Facial Cosmetic Procedures
A number of men and women come into my practice with a desire to replenish a loss in facial volume, typically resulting from the aging process. Luckily, there are a variety of nonsurgical options to help with this cosmetic goal. BOTOX CosmeticÂ® is a purified protein that is injected into the skin to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a great option for men and women who want to avoid surgery, but still seek more youthful-looking skin.
JUVÃâ°DERMÂ®XC is a gel filler that smoothes skin to improve facial volume, reduce lines and wrinkles, or enhance a person's lips. It's a natural solution to signs of aging on your face, and can also be combined with other surgical or nonsurgical procedures. This and other filler treatments are popular because they involve almost no recovery time.
Choosing Your Option
I remain committed to offering the latest technology so that my patients can get the results they want with little recovery time. When choosing between surgical and nonsurgical procedures, it's important to understand the benefits of your options. Men and women considering any form of plastic surgery should understand what they're trying to achieve. With a goal in mind, it's important to speak openly with your doctor about how you would like to look after surgery, and any fears you may have regarding your surgery.
The number of plastic surgery procedures and nonsurgical cosmetic enhancements has been on the rise in recent years for a number of reasons, and facial rejuvenation remains a rapidly growing aspect of this popular field.
