While none of us can escape the fate of getting older, we are all unique and age differently. If you have decided to explore surgical options to restore youthfulness to any feature of your face, it helps to understand how these procedures will work together for you.
While some women and men have isolated aging concerns, where their lines or sagging tissues are localized to one area or another, most patients have facial features that age simultaneously. Because of this, there is little reason to treat some areas of aging but not others.
This is why Dr. Jason Diamond believes in combining surgical techniques into his Diamond Facial Rejuvenation.
Diamond Facial Rejuvenation uses various facial surgeries and enhancement techniques to restore a more youthful appearance that remains balanced and in harmony. This procedure is tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
Your Diamond Facial Rejuvenation may involve some or all of the following facial surgeries.
The Top 5 Ways to Treat Common Signs of Aging
1. Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, surgically treats loose, droopy upper eyelids and sagging lower eyelids and bags. It is often one of the earlier facial surgeries women and men undergo because the skin around the eyes is more fragile than in other facial areas.
In an upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Diamond makes an incision within the eyelid’s natural crease to reposition or remove fat pockets and trim excess skin. Crows’ feet may also be treated with this procedure.
In a lower blepharoplasty, the incision is made beneath the lower lash line to extract or manipulate the pockets of fat that have accumulated, contributing to puffiness and bags while removing excess skin. This results in smooth, wrinkle-free skin under the eye.
2. Brow Lift
Brow lift surgery addresses sagging brows, frown lines, and deep horizontal forehead lines. There are a few different techniques available:
The endoscopic brow lift allows Dr. Diamond to manipulate the tissues and muscles of the brow with the assistance of an endoscope. This tool is equipped with a tiny camera that is inserted under the skin through small incisions along the hairline.
The endoscopic brow lift provides excellent results with minimal scarring and an easier recovery.
A traditional brow lift requires an incision across the top of the forehead behind the hairline that extends from ear to ear. This approach may be appropriate in cases of severe laxity, but it creates a more prominent scar hidden under the hair.
3. Neck Lift
The neck is another area that can age faster than other parts of the face.
Neck lift surgery can tighten the skin and redistribute pockets of fat to restore a youthful appearance. This procedure can make wrinkles, fine lines, and hanging jowls disappear or reduce them considerably.
During a neck lift, Dr. Diamond makes a small incision under the chin (submental area). This allows him to reshape the neck and submental area by smoothing fat deposits and soft tissue while pulling the neck skin up and back, then trimming away the excess skin.
This process tightens the neck and jawline for a more defined and younger look.
4. Cheek Lift
Loss of volume affects several areas of the face, but none more than the cheeks. Hollowed cheeks make the middle of the face lose its definition, a key feature of an aging face. This loss of definition causes added fullness to the lower face, resulting in jowls.
An endoscopic cheek lift requires only a few small incisions made behind the ear or within the hairline without having to cut into muscle. The surgeon uses the endoscope’s camera and small instruments when recontouring the soft tissues around the cheekbones to rebuild fuller, shapelier cheeks and reduce or eliminate nasolabial folds. A cheek lift can also improve hollows or bags beneath the eyes.
This procedure addresses several prominent signs of aging and can make you look several years younger.
Facelift surgery can reduce or eliminate loose, sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Facelift incisions may be made along the temples or extend around the ears into the lower hairline. A facelift alone can take many years off your face by reshaping the facial tissues and tightening the skin.
A neck lift is often included with a facelift; together, they target the lower to midface area, neck, and jowls.
Combining Surgical Facial Procedures
Cosmetic facial surgeries can be combined for a comprehensive approach. When you have a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon, they can best advise you on which procedures to combine to achieve your desired results.
You may choose from the following combinations (however, combinations are endless):
- Eyelid surgery with a brow lift
- Cheek lift with eyelid surgery
- Neck lift with eyelid surgery or brow lift
- Facelift surgery with any of the above
Combining a facelift with eyelid surgery or a brow lift is very popular and is a great approach to complete facial rejuvenation.
