Getting rid of wrinkles

Aging is inevitable. At some point, we all need to come to terms with the aging process. We can't stop aging from happening, but we can do something about the signs of aging with cosmetic surgery.

The most apparent signs of aging take place around the eyes and cheeks and show when you smile. what starts as tiny, fine lines will eventually turn into deeper, defined lines and wrinkles. If you have wrinkles, finding a cosmetic surgery procedure that's right for you is easy, thanks to all the options.

For dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by muscle contractions that cause the skin to bunch up, eyelid surgery, brow lift, forehead lift or BOTOX can help. these procedures address the lines on the forehead, above the eyebrows or the "crow's feet" around the eyes. BOTOX in particular can decrease muscle action so that wrinkles are prevented from forming.

For static wrinkles, which are caused by loss of elasticity in the skin, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, collagen injections and other lasers can help. Loss of elasticity occurs with years of sun exposure, aging, poor nutrition, smoking or genetics. Preventing static wrinkles begins with using sun protection, but facial plastic surgery procedures can help give your skin a new appearance.

When your primary facial muscles sag, wrinkles begin to show. Wrinkles can be treated with BOTOX, facelift, cheek lift, injectable fillers, neck lift and facial fat grafting. These procedures help reduce the look of wrinkles between the nose and mouth and fight the signs of aging around the neck.

Ask a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon which procedure is right for your needs and skin type. A surgeon can advise you on which procedure can give you long-term results, how many treatments you may need and how you can prepare for surgery.
