The face is one of the first areas that show signs of aging. As time goes on, the facial features may droop, sag, or develop a hollowed, gaunt appearance.
At our Bethesda, MD practice, Dr. Roger J. Oldham provides a wide range of non-surgical treatments and facial cosmetic surgery procedures to rejuvenate our patients' appearance.
Here, we briefly discuss the best anti-aging cosmetic surgery procedures so our patients can be well-informed about their treatment options.
Also referred to as microlipoinjection, fat grafting allows your cosmetic surgeon to sculpt and shape your facial contours. During this procedure, the patient’s own body fat is used to fill out sunken-in areas of the face.
First, liposuction is performed to remove excess fat cells from another area of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or jowls. Next, the fat cells are purified and isolated. Finally, these cells are injected into the targeted areas.
As we age, the skin above the eyes can become saggy or droopy. Some individuals may also develop circles or puffiness under the eyes.
These conditions can be corrected with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Upper blepharoplasty eliminates excess tissue above the eyes, while lower blepharoplasty removes sagging skin and unwanted fat deposits. The result is a beautifully refreshed appearance.
Do you have a furrowed brow? As the aging process continues, deep lines and creases may develop between the eyebrows. This can make patients appear tired and angry.
A brow lift elevates the eyebrows and smooths the skin in the area for a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
A brow lift can also effectively smooth away forehead lines and creases for a younger-looking appearance. Individuals who wish to eliminate a high hairline can also benefit from this procedure.
For some patients, the first signs of aging appear around the neck and jawline. A neck lift is appropriate for patients who wish to eliminate excess fat and skin in these areas. This procedure can also address loose skin, a double chin, and the appearance of abnormal contours.
A face lift is the most comprehensive cosmetic facial surgery. This procedure reduces telltale signs of aging in all areas of the face and jaw.
A face lift is fully customized to meet the needs of the patient. To perform this procedure, Dr. Oldham removes unwanted pockets of fat and sculps the underlying muscles to enhance the facial contours.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Though facial cosmetic surgery can offer dramatic results, the aging process will still continue after treatment is complete. However, with proper skin care and maintenance, most patients can enjoy the results of their treatment for many years to come.
During a consultation at our practice, Dr. Oldham can tell you what to expect after your procedure.
