If you had a choice, would you prefer to have a more youthful looking face or a more youthful looking body? A recent study funded by the cosmetic injectables company, Allergan, the makers of BOTOX, found that more women would rather have a youthful face over a youthful body, if they had to decide between the two.
We can't deny that most women want both, but when pressed to choose, the majority of women opt for a fresher face. Why is this? First, women are aware that a healthy diet and exercise are great ways to transform their body so it looks more trim, fit and youthful – just look around the gym or the yoga studio. Second, what's the point of being in the best shape of your life when your body looks 25 but your face says you're 50?
The good news is that there are a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help restore the fountain of youth and make you look more vibrant than you have in years. All you have to do is consider your goals and determine which options would help you achieve the best results.
Surgical and Nonsurgical Alternatives
Injectables/fillers – Thanks to BOTOX, Juvederm, Voluma and Restylane, patients can have quick results, without the downtime of surgery. These help diminish wrinkles and fine lines and fill out parts of the face that have lost volume with age.
Brow lift – Low or sagging brows have a way of conveying a sad or angry expression. By repositioning them with a minimally invasive surgical procedure, we can create a more alert, youthful and welcoming expression.
Facelift – The facelift creates a more youthful appearance and results can last 10 years. To accomplish this, we make an incision around the ears and hairline for the purpose of pulling the skin back and eliminating the wrinkles and folds that have developed over the years. While it's one of the more elaborate forms of facial rejuvenation, it's excellent for patients who want longer-lasting results.
Neck lift – For patients with lax skin that sags beneath the chin and around the neck, this procedure can turn back the clock dramatically and produce incredible results.
With so many surgical and nonsurgical options to choose from, there's something for everyone who wants their face to look fresher and more youthful.
