Turn Back the Clock: Five Anti-Aging Plastic Surgery Procedures That Take Years Off Your Look
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 28 cosmetic procedures were performed on nearly two million Americans in 2018. That includes breast augmentations, fat transfer, eyebrow lifts, hair transplants, and more.
As science advances, so do the opportunities to feel happy, healthy, and whole. Plastic surgery doesn’t just provide a lift of the skin here and a tuck of the tummy there.
It changes the way people feel every morning. It makes getting out the door a little bit easier, even on the best of days. If you’re exploring anti-aging plastic surgery options, you might want to consider one of the treatments listed below. Let’s take a closer look.
1. Facial Fat Grafting
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse® have been around for ages. They restore volume to the face and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
However, if you’re looking for a natural and permanent approach to youth restoration, then facial fat grafting may be a wonderful alternative. It takes fatty bulges from the body and transfers them to the face to improve facial contour.
Injecting fat back into the body is also more versatile than fillers. Doctors can target areas of the face that were full in youth and return the volume to those areas. In this way, facial fat grafting does more than just fill; it also restores a youthful contour. The stem cells within the fat improve skin tone, color, and texture.
2. Eyebrow Lift
Eyebrows tend to sag with age. When they droop like this, they can give off a look of fatigue or even stern disapproval. It also changes the way women approach their eye makeup.
There are three different approaches to this surgery. Some require small incisions at the hairline. Others can be approached endoscopically. Your doctor will help you decide which one is right for you. But, each approach will leave you with a completely rejuvenated look.
3. Eyebrow Transplantation
If you’re considering an eyebrow lift, you might want to research eyebrow transplantation, too. Nowadays, microblading is all the rage. And that’s a great alternative for the hair loss we experience in our eyebrows as we age.
However, eyebrow transplantation takes actual hair from the back of the head to recreate big, beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows. The other reason this stands tall above microblading is that the results are permanent. Good brows completely change the face and accentuate your eyes in a beautiful way.
4. Hair Transplantation
While we’re on the subject, let’s discuss hair transplantation. This is not just for men. Everyone experiences hair loss as they age. Like an eyebrow lift, there are several ways to approach the procedure.
Many methods are minimally invasive; individual follicles are removed from the scalp in naturally occurring groupings and placed in the areas of the scalp that are thinning. Like facial fat grafting, you’re working with what you have, which produces more natural results.
5. Arm Lift
There are a couple of reasons for the dreaded arm sag. Like our eyebrows, it can certainly be a result of aging. Other times, rapid weight loss produces what’s known as “bat wings” and there’s very little that can be done about it.
This is another procedure that requires a thorough sitdown with your doctor. Sometimes, circumferential liposuction is enough to solve the problem. Other times, a staged approach is required; this removes the fat via liposuction and then circles back to excise residual laxity.
