For a youthful look, facial rejuvenation is sought-after to reverse aging signs. Renowned plastic surgeons Drs. Foad, Farzad Nahai, and Dr. Milorad Marjanovic at MetroDerm’s Center for Plastic Surgery in greater Atlanta address common questions on facial rejuvenation.
What is facial rejuvenation?
Facial rejuvenation is a collection of cosmetic procedures designed to restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance to the face. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, collagen, and fat, which can lead to the formation of wrinkles, sagging skin, and a tired look. Facial rejuvenation aims to address these concerns and improve the overall aesthetics of the face. There are various non-surgical and surgical options available, depending on your specific needs and goals.
What are the most common facial rejuvenation procedures?
When discussing options with patients, we might talk about face lift, necklift, Facetite®, eyelid surgery, fat transfers or other options like dermal fillers, neurotoxins like BOTOX® Cosmetic, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Who is an ideal candidate for facial rejuvenation?
As with any cosmetic procedure, suitability depends on various factors. The plastic surgeons at MetroDerm’s Center for Plastic Surgery carefully assess each patient’s health, medical history, and aesthetic goals to determine the most appropriate approach.
What is the recovery process like?
It depends on the procedure performed. For cosmetic injections the downtime is minimal, ranging from a few hours to a couple of days. Chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing treatments can range from 2-3 days and up to 10 days depending on what is done. Most surgical procedures require 10-14 days of downtime at minimum.
Are there non-invasive alternatives to surgery?
MetroDerm’s Center for Plastic Surgery offers an array of non-surgical treatments, including laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, Facetite®, Morpheus 8®, and cosmetic injections. During your consultation, the plastic surgeon will guide you in selecting the best combination of procedures to achieve your desired results.
Before undergoing any facial rejuvenation procedure, consult a qualified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist to evaluate your needs. They will assess your facial features, discuss your concerns and expectations, and recommend the most suitable treatments. Keep in mind that every procedure comes with its benefits and risks, being well-informed and having realistic expectations are crucial to achieving satisfactory results.
