At Divino Plastic Surgery, Dr. Carlos Chacon has helped hundreds of men and women turn back the clock with an array of facial rejuvenation procedures. Because no two patients are alike, Dr. Chacon tailors his approach to the unique needs of the individual patient. Nevertheless, he hears many of the same concerns and goals from prospective patients.
Here Dr. Chacon discusses the most popular requests he hears from patients who want to look and feel young again.
Youthful and More Pleasant Eye Appearance
The eyes and forehead are among the first facial areas to show signs of aging. Over time, the tissue on the forehead and brow descend downward, and creases form on the skin. In some cases, the tissue hangs so low that it hoods the eyelids. The eyelids are affected by the aging process, too. Droopy upper eyelids and puffy lower eyelids can make you look older than you really are. As a result, many people request a more youthful, pleasant eye appearance.
Fortunately, eyelid surgery and forehead lift can transform tired, concerned or older-looking eyes into youthful, well-rested ones.
Eyelid surgery corrects the following:
- Loose, sagging skin and tissue on the upper and lower eyelids
- Wrinkles and fine lines around the lower eyelids
- Puffiness below the lower eyelids
- Horizontal creases and lines on the forehead
- Vertical creases between the eyebrows and eyes
- Sagging brow skin and tissue that hood the upper eyelids
Fuller Cheeks and Sleeker Jawline
Aging, combined with the forces of gravity, can cause the facial skin to sag. This has a noticeable effect on the cheeks and along the jawline, leading to flat or sunken cheeks and jowls. Many people experiencing these effects of aging request fuller cheeks and a sleeker jawline.
Enter facelift. This procedure is considered to be the gold standard in facial rejuvenation as it corrects an array of aging signs on the middle and lower facial areas, including volume loss in the cheeks, jowls, creases and folds around the mouth. During the procedure, the fat and skin on the cheeks are repositioned to a youthful position. In some cases, dermal fillers can be used to added more volume for a lifted and rounder contour. The jowls are also lifted and wrinkles are smoothed out during facelift.
A Well-defined Neck and Striking Jawline
Sagging, loose skin on the neck can obscure what was once a defined or sleek jawline and neck. These effects are disconcerting to those experiencing them, which is why many request surgery to regain a well-defined neck and striking jawline.
Neck lift is an excellent choice for removing loose skin and tightening the tissues underneath the chin and neck. The result is a sleeker and better sculpted lower facial region. Neck lift can be combined with liposuction to remove unwanted fat underneath the chin (submental fat) or facelift to address jowls.
Full Facial Rejuvenation (the Upper, Middle and Lower Facial Areas)
A facelift and eyelid surgery combination procedure is a popular choice for patients who desire the most comprehensive results. Simultaneously rejuvenating the upper, middle and lower facial regions can also produce the most natural-looking effect. Browlift may also be performed to smooth out the wrinkles on the forehead and elevate the brow. Skin treatments like laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels can be performed to improve the appearance of skin concerns like age spots, hyperpigmentation and acne. Skin problems like these cannot be corrected by facelift, eyelid surgery and other surgical procedures.
