Regain a Youthful Appearance with Facial Plastic Surgery in Your 40s
By dsherris on October 15, 2015
Aging unfortunately is unavoidable. But while most people appreciate the experiences and knowledge that comes with age, few look forward to the creases and wrinkles. The outer signs of aging often can develop even earlier than a person may expect. Thanks to environmental elements such as sun exposure and the frequent use of facial muscles, a patient’s face may begin showing the signs of aging once they reach their 40s or sometimes earlier. Facial plastic surgery addresses common signs of early facial aging to restore a more refreshed and youthful appearance for these patients. By undergoing facial plastic surgery in your 40s at our Buffalo practice, you can see a reduction in facial wrinkles. Dr. David A. Sherris discusses some of the facial procedures that can be beneficial for patients who have begun to notice the early effects of aging.
The eyes are expressive features, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that lines, creases, and wrinkles develop around this delicate area. These lines and bags, which are often present once a patient is in his or her 40s, can contribute to an aging appearance, and give patients a perpetually tired or angry look. Eyelid surgery tightens the skin around the upper or lower eyelids to smooth out wrinkles and eliminate puffiness. The end result is a happier, more alert, and refreshed appearance.
Another area of the body that is just as vulnerable to aging is the forehead. Like the eyes, the forehead is constantly exposed to environmental elements, and is frequently used to express a person’s emotions. As a result, the skin and muscles above the brows and along the forehead are likely to lose elasticity. This can result in fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, and deep creases. All of these effects can make patients look older than their true age. With brow lift surgery, Dr. Sherris can eliminate excess skin and re-drape the remaining skin to create a smoother, tighter appearance.
Signs of aging along the cheeks, neck, and jawline are typically not as severe when a patient is in his or her 40s. Patients may notice some loss of elasticity, drooping of the lower facial muscles, and minor hollowing out of facial features. A mini facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift and allows Dr. Sherris to address these early signs of aging in order to rejuvenate a patient’s lower facial features.
