Have a Youthful look at any age

The ability to turn back the clock is one that many people wish they possessed. While the desire to look youthful is shared by people across the United States, not everyone knows the cosmetic surgery options available to them to achieve this goal. Do you want to know more about how to rejuvenate your appearance and turn back the hands of time? Take a look at the article below to learn about the cosmetic surgery options that provide a refreshed and youthful look no matter your current age.

Now is the Right Time to have a Cosmetic Procedure

Right Time to have Cosmetic SurgeryIt is a fact that people are going to get older which means that the right time to have a cosmetic procedure is sooner rather than later. If a cosmetic surgeon determines that a patient is an ideal candidate for a procedure, the results will likely be more natural in appearance the earlier they decide to undergo cosmetic enhancements.

In addition to having the initial procedure, some cosmetic options require follow-up treatments on a regular basis to maintain the results. Treatments such as Botox and fillers are not permanent which means the results can only be maintained if you make the decision to continue having the procedures on a regular basis. Regularly scheduled “maintenance appointments” help a person maintain a youthful look that is also natural and rejuvenated in appearance.

In addition to having Botox and fillers on a consistent basis, it is important for you to find a cosmetic surgeon that you trust and are comfortable visiting on a regular basis. Working with the same doctor over a long period of time means you will not have to explain what you hope to achieve to a different person each time you enter a medical office. The doctor will know your medical history and what has worked well in the past. The doctor can share your vision for the desired results and help you attain them as your age,

Popular Cosmetic Treatments to Gain a Youthful Look

Besides Botox and fillers, there are other cosmetic treatments to help you gain and maintain a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance to the entire body. Some of the most popular choices include non-surgical fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting, chemical peels that get rid of older, dull or dead skin and laser resurfacing to reduce wrinkles and eliminate skin irregularities.

If you have sagging skin below the chin or the jawline, this is often referred to as “jowls”. A popular choice to address this issue is a PDO Thread Lift which uses synthetic, surgical sutures that are inserted into the skin in order to create a supportive structure that follows the natural shape of the face of the patient. As the sutures are inserted into the skin, the tissue that is sagging is “caught” and then moved back into its original position. The threads are made using a synthetic absorbable material that is commonly used during invasive surgical procedures such as open-heart surgery. PDO Threads are also absorbable so they dissolve in the months that follow their placement in the body.

The Coronavirus Pandemic has increased the Popularity of Cosmetic Surgery

It might seem odd to think that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has provided “positives” in the field of plastic surgery but this is the case for many patients. The need to work from home, and the lack of public gatherings or events, has created an increased desire by many to have cosmetic procedures. The ability to properly heal, away from the view of others, means patients do not have to worry about creating any type of excuses or reasons for their altered appearance. 

Surgical, and Non-Surgical, Options to Rejuvenate and Refresh the Body

If you are not sure about undergoing a surgical procedure such as a facelift to rejuvenate your appearance, ask your doctor about fillers that do not provide permanent changes to the look of your face. In addition to not providing permanent surgical changes, the results from fillers can be dissolved using an injection of hyaluronidase if you are not happy with the results.

If you are having trouble getting rid of stubborn fat in certain areas of the body, liposuction is an option that removes and eliminates the fat that is located in the targeted area of the body.

The eyelids can actually block the vision as you get older. Blepharoplasty (which can be performed on the upper eyelids as well as the lower eyelids) restores the vision blocked by excess skin and fat in the eyelids as well as removes bags that are located underneath the eyes.

“Zoom Boom” Looks to Continue in the Future

Even with coronavirus vaccines starting to become available to the public, the trend of social distancing and working from home will likely continue throughout 2021. This means more people viewing their appearance on Zoom and wanting to make changes to areas of their appearance they view as having flaws or in need of improvement.

Almost everyone is working in front of the camera on their computer screen or staying in touch with friends and family on Zoom or FaceTime. The desire to look their best is a driving force behind the wish to gain a rejuvenated look to the face and other areas of the body. The ability to improve your self-esteem through cosmetic procedures can eliminate insecurities and make you more confident and happy in your daily life.
