Antiaging Treatments and Trends…for 2013

shutterstock_10125679FACIAL AGING…Do you know how old your face really looks?  We look into our mirrors daily and see the same face…often not recognizing the age related changes that are taking place.  It’s important to look into the mirror and see your face as it is now….not how you remember it from 10 years ago.  Sings of facial aging can be seen:

  • The eyes ..as “Crow’s Feet appear and deep grooves etch into the forehead between the eyes.  Eyelids (upper and lower) sag, hollows may develop and you may look “sad” even though you probably aren’t.
  • The Nose knows about aging…it too can change shape with aging… Nasolabial folds often develop between the nose and lips caused by loss of facial fat/volume and changing boney structure.
  • The Cheek fat pads start their descent down the face as they slowly deflate
  • Lips can sag. loose their beautiful sexy curves (volume loss) and corners can turn down causing an angry frown.
  • The Chin may become weaker with fat and volume loss and often highlights an aging nose.
  • And More……

The idea here is to get you to pay attention to “your aging.”  Anti Aging treatments should be started in your 30’s and maintained…in order to always keep looking several years younger than you actually are. AntiAging….is really about prevention.

Today, our refined treatments/techniques often empower us to delay surgery…i.e. a facelift. If started early enough, you have can have injectables to restore volume to prevent a sagging, old looking face.  Women start to lose facial volume in their 30’s…in the temples, nasolabial folds and cheek fat pads. Men follow close  behind. By fixing these areas early in life, cosmetic surgeons are finding that the aging process can occur more slowly.

Dramatic Lifters replace yesterdays fillers!  For example:  Sculptra Aesthetic and Radiesse stimulate  your bodies own production of collagen…soft tissue volume to fill in those empty spaces again.  This lasts much longer, sometimes a few years.

Celebrities start early and do small treatments to slow and reverse the signs of aging….and they continue this trend so they always look years younger.

2013 Hot Age Defying Procedures in order of popularity…

  1. Tummy Tuck  (Abdominoplasty removes excess fat, sagging, hanging skin, lifts and tightens muscles) achieves a firmer, more youth tummy.  Liposuction is part of this surgery.
  2. Arm Lift  (Brachioplasty) removes excess fat in the under arm between the armpit and the elbow.  Loose, hanging skin is excised and the arm sculpted to look more youthful and natural.
  3. BreastLift….involves lifting the sagging breasts to a higher, more youthful position and many women opt to include Breast Implants to achieve the desired breast shape and size.
  4. Breast Augmentation…uses Breast Implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the breast.   This is a standard request for New Mommy Makeovers….and midlife women who have experienced loss of breast volume and sagging breasts (ptosis).
  5. BrowLift…Facial Aging often shows up in the forehead and eye areas first. Browlift does just that…as the brow is lifted to it’s more youthful position…Forehead Lift is usually part of this to remove those unwelcome lines and grooves and tighten and lift the forehead.
  6. NeckLift…An aging neck …like “Turkey Waddle” is a sight for sore eyes!  Tightening and lifting neck muscles and skin (removing hanging skin) takes 10 years off your aging neck appearance immediately!

We’re halfway through February already.  Are you ready for Spring?  How about summer and beach time….in shape?   Come on in…let’s design your age reversing treatment plan.

Guys and Gals Nose Makeovers…by Dr. Steven Davison

Long Lasting Facial Makeovers…Nose Jobs

Well, I’ve been getting you up to speed on long lasting Facial Makeovers, using techniques that effectively remove 10 years from your face, and keep you looking years younger always.  Today, we look at the importance of the nose and how aging affects it and…facial balance.  Nose jobs (Rhinoplasty) is one of the most elegant surgeries performed and can dramatically restore youthfulness, symmetry and balance to any aging face.

Why Rhinoplasty?  Each year hundreds of thousands of men and women decide to have their noses reshaped, repaired and done over for a host of reasons including: injuries that caused a deformed nose and hindered normal nasal function and/or left the nose misshapen (Deviated Septum) etc. Noses change with aging causing a droopy tip or bulbous tip, there may be humps and bumps or “ski slope” appearance; the nose may be too wide, to narrow, too weak and much more.  All these and other concerns  about form and function affect overall facial appearance and often…self esteem suffers.

Facial Balance & the Nose…When the nose is a problem (see above) it usually affects facial balance and symmetry…which is crucial to looking young.  Also, an out of balance nose can highlight a weak chin or other facial defects.  Bringing the nose into correct balance and proportion for your face is done by correcting size, shape and position.

The nose is the most defining characteristic on the face…for this reason nearly one million Americans have nose jobs every year.

Benefits of Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty) include:

  • To create or restore function
  • Give you the nose you’ve always wanted and never had
  • Change the size, shape & position of the nose
  • Create a more youthful overall facial appearance
  • Achieve a harmonious blend with your other facial features
  • Can be combined with other facial procedures to optimize your results
Rhinoplasty is one of today’s most popular long lasting facial makeover options. It is one of the many age defying solutions people choose to take years off their face now…and to keep looking years younger always!
It is a safe, effective and often the only way to get the outcomes people really want.  I perform it to restore function and to create aesthetic beauty and youthfulness.  For more information about the procedure and how it’s done see: www.davinciplastic.com and look at the page on Rhinoplasty.
Revision Rhinoplasty…is nose surgery done to correct or make changes from a previous nose surgery.  I am specially trained and skilled in revision/restorative surgeries and combined with my superb knowledge of the complex nose and facial structure, along with honed skills and years of experience…I get results that my patients love wearing.
Well,  men and women and “couples” are showing up in aesthetic clinics around the world to take advantage of today’s many advancements in cosmetic procedures…and to safely and effectively combat aging.  We cannot stop the clock…but we can and are doing a terrific job of holding at bay the visible signs of aging and keeping millions of people looking as young as they feel.
Come on in and let’s get to work!
