We all want a glowing complexion, but as we age, skin can become duller and less radiant, and fine lines appear more visible. There are some cosmetic procedures that are relied upon by hundreds of women to eliminate signs of aging, and most plastic surgeons in NYC will be happy to explain these procedures in more detail – here's a rough guide to some of the most popular procedures.
A facelift is a major cosmetic procedure that is usually only carried out on older women who are experiencing facial sagging, jowls, wrinkles, and creases around the mouth and eyes. You can choose from a full facelift or a limited-incision facelift, where areas with deep creases will be targeted rather than the whole face. Downtime after a facelift varies, but most patients take between three to six weeks to heal, with sensations in the face returning to normal over a period of a few months. The results of a facelift can last for five to ten years, after which time you may wish to have another procedure!
Similar to a facelift, a neck lift focuses on the jowls and sagging skin of the neck, which is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Recovery can take between four to six weeks, and most women are very pleased with the results.
If a facelift seems like a drastic option, improve the texture of your skin and make wrinkles appear less visible with a chemical peel – Samantha on Sex and the City looked amazing after hers! Be aware that a chemical peel can cause redness and irritation and your skin may take time to heal. A chemical solution is applied to your skin which assists in peeling off the top layers of dead skin cells, providing a fresh, youthful glow and making skin appear less wrinkled. This is a popular procedure with women looking for a quick and easy route to youthful, glowing skin.
Whichever procedure you opt for, it's important to maintain a good skincare regime at home with regular cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizing, to keep the signs of aging at bay.
