Overhaul
apr11_eNL-200
The skin care routine and products that you have been using may need an upgrade.  Take the time to consult with your facial plastic surgeon on the best regimen for your skin.  The basics are the same—cleanse, moisturize, protect with sunscreen—but there may be specific products or treatments that will address your unique skin tone and texture.

Volumize
As we age, we tend to lose volume in our skin.  This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle.  Dermal fillers are an excellent way to restore fullness and rejuvenate these features that may be showing signs of aging too quickly for you.  For a permanent solution, your physician may recommend implants.

Plump
If you are looking for plumper, fuller lips, try lip augmentation.  A full, perfect pout exudes youthfulness and with a range of options, there is sure to be a solution within your budget.  Talk to your physician about the different filler materials and how you can achieve the results you want.

Tone
Laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels offer varying degrees of removing the old, wrinkled top layer of the skin and allowing a new, refreshed layer to come through.  These treatments can address sunspots, uneven pigmentation, blemishes, fine lines, rosacea, and scars.

Adjust
Take the opportunity to adjust your most important facial feature—your nose.  Rhinoplasty, surgery of the nose, is the number one procedure performed by facial plastic surgeons.  Your surgeon can address your concerns to improve symmetry, increase or decrease the size of the nose, reduce a hump, reshape the tip or bridge, narrow the span of
the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and upper lip.

Restore
Schedule a Rhytidectomy, a facelift, which will take years off of your appearance.  A full facelift is designed to remove accumulated fat, re-support the neck muscles that have stretched, and remove excess skin—primarily in the lower two-thirds of the face.  It smoothes the neck area, reduces jowls, and refines the jawline.

While others may be vacationing, this is your chance to refine and refresh your look.  If you don’t have a specific treatment or procedure in mind but are looking to renew and rejuvenate, make an appointment with your facial plastic surgeon.  You can discuss the options and what might be best for you.
