Anti-aging Plastic Surgery Procedures
The appearance of facial aging can be especially difficult to accept. Luckily, there are many anti-aging plastic surgery procedures available today to enhance and rejuvenate your facial appearance. Gainesville plastic surgeon Greg Gaines offers patients a multitude of anti-aging plastic surgery options in facial rejuvenation, including mini facelift, eyelid surgery, neck lift, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. If you are experiencing sagging or drooping facial skin, wrinkles, deep lines and creases, facial jowls, or a loss of facial muscle tone, you may benefit from one or more anti-aging plastic surgery procedures. For our patients in Gainesville, facelift, eyelid surgery, neck lift, and BOTOX® Cosmetic, among many other procedures, may be combined during facial rejuvenation.
Mini facelift is ideal for our Gaines Plastic Surgery patients who desire to enhance their facial appearance by removing minor facial sagging and drooping around the cheeks, jowls, and neck area. Most commonly, we recommend mini facelift for patients who are in their 30s to 40s who are just beginning to show signs of facial aging. Mini facelift provides patients with a minimally invasive yet effective way to reduce the appearance of facial aging. Because the incisions used during mini facelift are quite small, mini facelift is one of the least invasive plastic surgery procedures performed today.
Patients with prominent sagging skin, deep creases, displaced fat, and loss of muscle tone throughout the entire face may benefit more from traditional facelift surgery.
Signs of facial aging often appear in the eyelids before other areas of the face. Through eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), the appearance of the eyes and areas surrounding the eyes can be drastically improved. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or on both the upper and lower eyelids. If you are experiencing bags under the eyes, excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids, loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids, a puffy appearance of the upper eyelids, excess skin and fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids, or droopiness in the lower eyelids, you may benefit from eyelid surgery.
The neck is one of the first places to show signs of aging. Excess fat and skin and weakened muscles of the neck can cause a person to appear older than he or she actually is. Loose, sagging skin in the neck region can give the appearance of a double chin or of a “turkey” or “wattle” neck. Through necklift surgery, the neck can once again have a taut, youthful appearance. Procedures that make up necklift surgery may include liposuction, cervicoplasty, and platysmaplasty. Your unique needs will determine which surgical techniques are used during your neck lift procedure.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Injectable Fillers
Many men and women desire a more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated appearance, but do not want to undergo invasive plastic surgery treatments. BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers provide patients with an effective, yet natural-looking solution to many facial imperfections. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for patients with moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Crows’ feet, loss of fullness in the face, nasolabial folds, thin lips, and hollow cheeks, among other facial imperfections, can be improved by injectable fillers.
