The field of plastic surgery is constantly evolving, with new techniques and procedures emergingeach year. Worldwide plastic surgery statistics, however, show that many people still prefer tried-and-true surgical methods for anti-aging as they are safe, effective, and predictable. Many of the most popular procedures are classics that still produce consistently good results.
Techniques may change, but these procedures are still popular for a reason. If you’re overwhelmed by the anti-aging options available today, these classic procedures might be a perfect fit for you.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a common, relatively non-invasive anti-aging surgery that can resolve sagging skin and bags around the upper and/or lower eyelids. Sagging skin and fat deposits around the eyes can make a person look tired, sad, unhappy, and much older than they actually are. Blepharoplasty is popular for both men and women.
The brow is often one of the first places people begin to notice aging. An aging brow can often make a person appear angry or tired, but the surgery to help resolve fine lines and wrinkles is fairly simple. Following the procedure, the patient will look more refreshed and rejuvenated. Concerns about a permanent “surprised” look following brow lift are largely unfounded, particularly when the procedure is performed by an expert surgeon.
The classic facial rejuvenation procedure, the facelift can actually consist of several different techniques combined to suit the patient’s needs. Mini lifts are also common. These target specific areas, rather than the entire face. One advantage of the facelift is the balanced look and dramatic improvement it can produce.
Used to resolve excess skin in the neck area, the neck lift is a great treatment for the “turkey wattle” of hanging neck skin many people suffer from. Neck lifts are also often combined with facelifts for maximum results.
Men often see problems with sagging skin in the chin and jaw area before other areas of the face begin to age. This is also where women start to see a “turkey wattle” develop. Chin liposuction and the removal of excess skin under the chin can tighten the jaw and get rid of the double chin and sagging skin.
