Among adults aged 50 and older, the divorce rate has roughly doubled since the 1990s. The skyrocketing number of single older adults explains their increased interest in jumping back into the dating scene. If you’re trying to find a new special someone to share your life with, first impressions can make all the difference. A cosmetic procedure can help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.
What Facial Procedures Should You Consider?
Many people find surgeries such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift beneficial in helping reverse the common signs of aging. However, if you’re assuming surgery is the only way to restore your self-esteem and help you reach your aesthetic goals, think again. A wide range of non-surgical options are also available for people who want to make subtle improvements, without the lengthy healing time associated with some surgeries. Let’s explore some of the advantages of our most popular procedures to help you learn more.
Surgical Anti-Aging Options
What are some surgeries you can consider to look your best at any age? We’re sharing some of our favorite surgical enhancements below. These treatments are available as stand-alone procedures, or you can choose to combine them for even more dramatic results.
Facelift surgery is an excellent way to address many of the most common concerns about aging, including lost volume in the mid-face, wrinkles that surround the mouth, and sagging skin around the jawline that creates the appearance of jowls. In performing a facelift, Dr. Alderman repositions the skin and underlying muscles to restore a more youthful facial contour. If excess skin remains, it is carefully removed for a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
If you are experiencing sagging in the upper third of your face, your drooping brows could be the culprit. A brow lift can make you look years younger by moving the tissues on your brow to a more uplifted position, without creating a permanently surprised appearance. This procedure is often performed endoscopically, resulting in smaller incisions and reduced downtime.
Do people often assume you are tired, sad, or angry, even when you’re feeling well-rested and cheerful? You could be an excellent candidate for an eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty. The skin around the eyes and eyelids is thin and delicate and is often one of the first places to show the signs of aging.
If your upper eyelid skin is drooping, it can overshadow your eyes, and in some cases, it can even obscure your vision. Age-related issues with the lower eyelids often include dark undereye circles, as well as bags or pouches under the eyes. An eyelid lift can improve your appearance by solving these problems and helping you look more approachable.
Minimally Invasive Anti-Aging Options
What if you want to get back on the market, but don’t want to wait? You’re in luck – advancements in aesthetic medicine have given you a wealth of choices for rejuvenating without incisions, stitches, or scars. Let’s review some of our favorite ways to restore a youthful appearance without going under the knife.
More and more busy men and women are discovering the benefits of cosmetic injectables for renewing their appearance. For example, neuromodulators such as BOTOX® and Dysport® create a temporary paralysis in the muscles around the eye and eyebrow area, minimizing the look of lines such as crow’s feet and brow furrows. Neuromodulators only work on dynamic wrinkles, also called expression lines.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® restore lost facial volume and soften wrinkles such as the “parentheses lines” and “marionette lines” that form around the mouth. You can use these injectable products one at a time, or choose to combine them in a procedure known as a “liquid facelift.”
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved treatment to smooth and tighten skin from the forehead to the chest with ultrasound energy. If you are looking for a minimally invasive, zero-downtime way to tighten aging skin, this treatment is one of our most popular options.
