Age and gravity can be unkind to our appearance. Skin loses elasticity and well-defined facial features give way to heavy jowls, sagging cheeks and loose neck skin. A facelift can turn back the clock on aging, giving back a smoother, firmer and refined face and neckline for a naturally more youthful appearance for years to come.
Are you tired of people asking you if you are tired? Eyelid rejuvenation surgery can correct sagging, wrinkled skin on the upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids to restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance to eyes that constantly appear tired, sad or overly concerned.
Facial Fat Grafting
Fat can be your best friend when it’s in the right places. By using your own fat as a filler, we can help you restore fullness to hollowed cheeks, soften deep creases, or even refine your jawline without facial surgery or scars, with results that are permanent.
Central to your facial harmony, your nose helps to define your appearance as uniquely yours. If you’re not happy with what you see, rhinoplasty can help you get a beautiful, natural-looking nose that’s in better proportion to the rest of your face and can even help correct breathing problems.
How to Maintain Results
Facial plastic surgery procedures in Charlotte provide long-term results, but patients may want to consider taking proactive steps to preserve their enhancements even further. For instance, exposure to the sun and UV rays will lead to a quicker breakdown of collagen and elastin, as well as sun damage and other cosmetic concerns. Reducing sun exposure and consistently wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential for preserving the newly enhanced skin’s health and appearance.
Taking care of the skin with a good skincare routine is also essential for protecting its health and preventing new aging signs from forming. By following a proper skincare regimen, post-surgical scars may fade quicker and be less visible after recovery.
Lastly, patients who undergo facial plastic surgery may want to consider quitting smoking nicotine since it could cause collagen to breakup quicker and offset any enhancements. The facial movements involved in smoking typically produce wrinkles around the mouth due to repetitive motion.
Steps to Take for a Smoother Recovery After Facial Plastic Surgery
Since facial cosmetic surgery in Charlotte typically includes invasive procedures, patients should factor in several weeks of recovery. During that time, mobility and physical abilities may be limited, so taking proactive steps to prepare for recovery helps smoothen the process for many patients.
For instance, patients with children or pets may want to consider arranging childcare and pet care during recovery; while buying premade food or preparing meals before surgery allows patients more time to rest.
Lastly, recovery after surgery could be an emotionally distressing time for patients, so having a support system to talk to is critical. Discussing emotional and mental struggles with a doctor after surgery could provide additional support and treatments to help patients cope.
