Top Skin Issues Among Patients
Posted November 05, 2019 in General Plastic Surgery, by Dr. Fiorillo
Let’s face it — your skin is the part of you that the whole world sees. As the body’s largest, most visible organ, your skin can certainly say a lot about you. Is yours saying the right thing?
As a plastic surgeon, I can tell you firsthand that some of the top cosmetic concerns among patients are pertaining to their skin. Thankfully, modern medicine offers a myriad of treatments — both surgical and nonsurgical — that can combat even the most pressing skin concern. Want to find out what other patients are doing about it?
Here is our list of the Top Skin Issues Among Patients:
- Wrinkles on the face: Facial wrinkles are the most common cosmetic skin concern by far. Not only do they make us look old, but they can make us feel old. And, when it comes to wrinkle treatments, patients are looking for less-invasive options such as BOTOX® and fillers. BOTOX is essentially a muscle relaxer that works to prevent creases, while fillers like Restylane® “fill in” the spaces of creases.
- Drooping skin around midsection: Whether you’ve lost a great deal of weight, had a child or are simply dealing with the effects of aging, sagging skin around the midsection can be a problem. Thankfully, a tummy tuck can often be the answer. Tummy Tuck Surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure aimed at flattening and shaping the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles.
- “Turkey neck”: As we age, the skin can sag and droop, creating what has come to be known as a “turkey neck.” Often, Necklift Surgery can combat this by smoothing and tightening the skin on the neck. The goal is a toned, more youthful appearance.
- Brown spots: Brown spots are one of the biggest red flags when it comes to premature aging. Usually due to years of sun exposure, brown spots can cause a great deal of grief. Often, however, we can treat the appearance of brown spots with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion — also known as microderm — uses a stream of fine particles to exfoliate the skin and rejuvenate the appearance.
