Whether you are a man or a woman, changes occur throughout the body with age. Fortunately, cosmetic surgery can help to slow the aging process, and help you to age more gracefully. But just what is cosmetic surgery? Cosmetic surgery refers to a variety of procedures designed to improve the look of various areas of the body. It is not a permanent solution to aging as the body will continue to age, but it can slow down the process to keep you looking younger longer.
What is Cosmetic Surgery?
A good cosmetic surgery definition is as follows: an elective procedure that allows you to alter or enhance the face or different parts of the body that a person wants to change. Cosmetic surgery has evolved over the years and has become far more accepted within our society. It is no longer reserved for the elite or just for women. People of all types seek cosmetic surgery and for a variety of reasons. Dr. Bentkover is a board certified cosmetic surgeon with 30 plus years of experience in enhancing his patients’ lives so they can feel confident about their appearance.
There are many different types of cosmetic surgery procedures for patients to consider. There are surgical and non-surgical procedures designed to enhance the face, such as facelifts, rhinoplasty and dermal fillers. There are surgical procedures for various areas of the body, like breast reduction, augmentation, or lift, liposuction or tummy tucks. During consultation, you can discuss your problem areas and get advice on the best treatments to help you achieve your goals.
Enhancing Your Appearance with Facial Procedures
There are quite a few procedures that can be performed on the face alone. The facelift is a great procedure which removes excess skin, tightens loose skin and smoothes wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. The neck lift can improve the appearance of a “turkey neck”, while eyelid surgery can help to rejuvenate the eye area for a brighter, more alert look. The brow lift, or forehead lift, is ideal for treating a heavy brow and smoothing forehead wrinkles. Rhinoplasty can even rejuvenate the appearance by addressing a drooping or bulbous nasal tip, features which may occur with age. Procedures are often combined to achieve an optimal result. A consultation with Dr. Bentkover is a great way to discuss your facial cosmetic surgery options and develop a plan of action.
Surgery is not for everyone. For those seeking a less invasive means of combating facial aging, injectable treatments can be the ideal solution. While not a permanent fix, injectables can address aging signs to create a more youthful look, and treatments can be repeated as needed. These minimally invasive treatments offer immediate results wtih little to no downtime
Injectables can help to ease stubborn lines and facial folds like crow’s feet, frown lines, marionette lines and more. They can also plump the lip and add volume to other areas of the face like the cheeks. There are a variety of injectables to choose from, including Dysport, Juvederm, Restylane, Lip Augmentation, Kybella, Radiesse, and more. Some are better for certain areas, and each has their pros and cons. Dr. Bentkover will consider your problem areas and help to choose an injectable that’s best for you.
Laser resurfacing is another great, less invasive way to rejuvenate the appearance. The laser effectively removes the outer, damaged layers of skin to improve wrinkles, dark spots, uneven pigmentation, spider veins, skin inflammation like rosacea, and more. Treatment is comfortable, and recovery is often less extensive than after surgery, though more than injectables. Results can be dramatic. Discuss your options during consultation with Dr. Bentkover to see if laser resurfacing could be right for you.
