How to Achieve Natural-Looking Plastic Surgery

As plastic surgery techniques and technologies evolve and advance, choosing to undergo a facelift no longer means you come out looking overdone, with the too-tight “windswept” look people often associate with previous surgical techniques. Today’s facelifts are much more subtle, targeting lax skin and deep lines from your eyes to your neck.

Dr. George Alexander understands that choosing to undergo a facelift is a big decision. However, in the hands of a skilled surgeon, a facelift can leave you looking natural yet refreshed.

Dr. Alexander’s “inconspicuous facelift” is designed to give you a rejuvenated appearance, and when combined with other facial procedure options, you’ll enjoy a more youthful appearance for years to come.

What Does a Facelift Address?

Facelifts address signs of aging in the midface and neck, including the cheeks, nasolabial folds, mouth, and jawline. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging around the midface can cause you to have a sunken-in look and appear older than you are. Deep lines and skin laxity around your mouth and nose are telltale signs of aging that a facelift can improve.

If you notice loose skin, sagging, or deep wrinkles in your lower face and neck, a facelift can help remedy those issues. It tightens and smoothes your skin, giving you a more youthful profile.

What About a Forehead Lift?

To keep your entire face looking refreshed and rejuvenated, you might consider adding a forehead lift to your facelift.

A forehead lift, also called a brow lift or upper facelift, targets the signs of aging above your eyes. If you’ve noticed that your eyebrows have begun to sag, making you look angry or tired, a forehead lift is an excellent option. Forehead lifts give your eyebrows a more youthful look and smooth the lines between your eyes and across your forehead.

Dr. Alexander starts the procedure by making an incision along the hairline on your forehead and raising your eyebrows. He then weakens the frown muscle to help prevent further lines on your forehead. He completes the procedure by removing excess skin around the hairline and closing the incision with surgical clips. Recovery takes about a week, and your natural hairline completely hides the incision scar.

How Can I Complete My Rejuvenation With Eyelid Surgery?

Your eyes are the focal point of your face, so when you notice your eyelids starting to droop or discover permanent bags under your eyes, you may be concerned that you look older than you feel.

Beyond just being a cosmetic issue, sagging eyelids can also cause functional problems, as the excess skin can hang over your eye and obstruct your vision. Whatever your concerns, eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) can refresh and rejuvenate your eyes, improving their appearance and restoring function.

An eyelid lift can reduce and even eliminate visual impairment while making your eyes appear younger and more alert.

Some of the reasons to undergo an eyelid lift include:

  • Upper eyelid skin that is loose or sagging, creating folds or affecting the contour of the lid
  • Drooping upper lids that affect vision
  • Pockets of excess fat that cause puffiness in the eyelids
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelid
  • Bags under the eyes

Whether you simply want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems because of your eyelids, blepharoplasty is an excellent option to add to your facelift procedure.
