Many individuals fail to notice or combat some of the more subtle and early signs of aging, according to recent articles on Elite Daily. Treating the signs of aging as soon as possible through plastic surgery procedures can help many patients maintain a more youthful appearance, now and later on in life. The Los Angeles based medical group goes on to note that plastic surgery procedures and injectables such as Botox and Restylane can help many patients deal with a variety of aesthetic issues, such as:
Wrinkles – By far one of the most noticeable signs of aging, facial wrinkles can cause many women and men to feel far more self-conscious about their appearance. A highly skilled and extremely experienced surgeon can successfully reduce the appearance of wrinkles by performing cutting-edge procedures such as an eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift. Other patients who may be satisfied with less permanent measures may also take advantage of such increasingly popular injectables as Botox and Restylane to enable them to look as young as they feel.
Loose Skin – A significant weight loss due to a pregnancy or a successful weight loss procedure can oftentimes leave many patients with unsightly and excess folds of skin that no amount of exercise can improve – and those loose folds of skin can make a patient look a great deal older and heavier than he or she really is. Procedures such as a tummy tuck can safely and effectively remove loose skin from the body so that patients look and feel their very best. In terms of facial appearance, patients can also undergo a leading-edge procedure such as a neck lift, to effectively remove sagging skin around the neck area and redefine their jawlines for a far more youthful look. They also note a new non-surgical alternative, Kybella, is also now available as a permanent solution to the dreaded “turkey neck.”
Unflattering features – Many patients who seek plastic surgery often hope to improve or reduce features that they may find unflattering or overly prominent, and which may also serve to make them look older in subtle ways. Patients can undergo cutting-edge procedures such as a rhinoplasty (nose job). Alongside improving the shape of the nose, a procedure which makes the nose look somewhat smaller can also subtly help the patient look younger. This is because, as we age, our nose never stops growing so we often unconsciously associate larger noses with older individuals.
