Facial rejuvenation seems to be a trending topic that is here to stay. As people age, the face is often the biggest indicator of these changes, with sagging skin, puffy eyes and hollowed cheeks, it can be increased by a decade or more.
With the latest medical innovations and techniques, the typical facial rejuvenation procedures have expanded completely. New understandings of muscle relaxation and the role of neurotoxinshave increased substantially, creating a new subset of the field itself.
A myriad of choices including skin resurfacing, tightening, volume restoration and muscle balancing are all important factors to consider when deciding on an ultimate procedure.
In terms of actual procedures, there are many available at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists including:
- Endoscopic Browlift
- Endoscopic MidFace Lift
- Mini Facelift
There are many noninvasive injectables available to choose from as well including:
- Juvederm Voluma
- Liquid Facelift
Restoring facial volume can be achieved in two different ways, direct fillers and fat grafting. Fillers, such as those that enhance the face usinghyaluronic acid orpolymers of lactic acid, create more tissue volume over time. This treatment can be administered quickly, but should only be done by a professional, as placement and total number of injections is vital to the ultimate outcome.
Through fat grafting, fat is harvested from another area of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, cleaned and injected into the face. Through a gentle liposuction motion, fat is taken and reinjected easily. Unlike fillers, this type of treatment has no real limited supply, as it comes from the patient’s own body.
