Despite being aware that you are steadily undergoing the ageing process, it can be quite shocking to look in the mirror and no longer recognise the aged face that is looking back to you! But that is what ageing does—not many people actually realise that their appearance is progressively getting older until one day they cannot reconcile with the wrinkles, age lines and other changes their face has developed. Fortunately, there is a myriad of cosmetic procedures that you can undergo to rejuvenate your appearance. If you are unfamiliar with plastic surgery, the following are just some of the options available to make your face look more youthful than it is.
Commonly known as facelifts, rhytidectomies are the most popularly requested cosmetic procedures from people who are striving for a younger appearance. Nevertheless, a major aspect of facelifts that the average person may be unaware of is that this procedure only focuses on the lower parts of your face. Thus, if you have developed sagging jowl and perhaps excessive wrinkling at the bottom of your face, then a facelift will be much better suited for you rather than someone looking to contend with deep wrinkles on their forehead. Because facelifts do not transform the entire appearance of the face, the procedure is typically carried out in tandem with another cosmetic treatment, for example, a blepharoplasty.
This type of cosmetic procedure is known as eyelid surgery. It is best suited for individuals who have developed excessively droopy eyelids that in turn are causing them to appear much more fatigued than they are. A blepharoplasty will also be imperative if the sagging of your eyelids is severe enough that it has begun to impair your vision. During blepharoplasty, the cosmetic surgeon will cut away the excess skin, which in turn tightens your eyelid. Once you heal and the puffiness recedes, you will notice your eyes appear wider, which gives you a younger appearance. You may also consider having a blepharoplasty with a browplasty for the best results.
As the name implies, this cosmetic procedure involves the lifting of your eyebrows for facial rejuvenation. A browplasty is advantageous in a couple of ways. Firstly, it reduces wrinkling on your forehead as well as in between your eyes through tightening of the skin. Secondly, by lifting your eyebrows, you also tighten any droopy skin on your eyelids, and this breathes new life to your eyes!
