Skin rejuvenation procedures are growing in popularity across the nation, particularly in regions where people spend more time outdoors and therefore may be prone to wrinkling of the skin, according to a recent article on the Daily News. The author of the article notes that, according to an association of plastic surgeons, facial rejuvenation procedures increased by 20% between the years 2014 to 2015.
As improved methods of retaining a youthful appearance and rejuvenating facial skin become more widely available, it is not entirely surprising that more people are electing to have these procedures. A great number of factors influence individuals’ decision to seek out these procedures, such as wishing to remain competitive in the work force and the desire to stay active in the dating world. While breast augmentations and rhinoplasties may currently be the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures, skin rejuvenation is quickly catching up in popularity. Some of the other facial rejuvenation procedures we routinely perform include:
- Eyelid surgery – Just like parts of the face such as the forehead, chin area, and cheeks, skin around the eyes can become creased and may lose elasticity as a result of age, sun damage, and stress. And because many people consider their eyes to be their face’s focal point, many people elect eyelid surgery to remove any flaws from the skin, so that their ‘windows to the soul’ remain looking well-rested and youthful. While this procedure is often performed for cosmetic purposes, reducing the size of heavy eyelids can also help improve peripheral vision.
- Lip augmentation – Throughout the ages, full and well-defined lips have been perceived as a sign of youth and vitality. However, age and health concerns such as smoking can account for thin or wrinkled lips, which can have a negative effect on one’s confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, lip augmentation is becoming an increasingly effective way for people to turn back the clock and enjoy fuller, more attractive lips.
