Today’s plastic surgery procedures can help you stay one step ahead of the aging process. At our Albany and Saratoga Springs-area plastic surgery practice, our surgeons tailor each facial procedure to help you enhance your own unique beauty. We offer a wide array of facial rejuvenation options that you can have on their own or combined for a more complete revitalization. Check out our favorite options for looking 10 years younger and staying ahead of the curve:
• Eyelid Surgery: Also called blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a great way to refresh the delicate skin around your eyes when creams and lotions just won’t do it. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It’s a versatile procedure that can correct an array of common concerns, including bags under the eyes, puffy eyelids, and sagging, for a wide-eyed, refreshed result. The incisions for eyelid surgery are made along the natural creases of the eye, which results in discreet scarring. Following surgery, most people are back to work in about a week, although it’s important to protect your incisions from the sun to ensure they heal properly.
• Facelift: Facelift surgery at our Albany practice is one of our most popular anti-aging options. This time-tested surgery targets the lower two-thirds of the face and the neck, an area where many people notice the most significant facial aging. A facelift can improve the look of jowls, sagging skin, and wrinkles for a smoother result that reveals a younger-looking version of yourself. The incisions for a typical facelift are well-hidden behind the hairline. Facelift patients are back to work and enjoying their new looks within 2 weeks.
• Rhinoplasty: Believe it or not, your nose can age you! Whether you’ve always been unsatisfied with the look of your nose or you’ve noticed changes to your nose as you aged, a rhinoplasty at our Syracuse, N.Y.-area practice can improve its shape, size, or projection to bring it into harmony with the rest of your face. Rhinoplasty incisions may be made completely within the nose (called a “closed rhinoplasty”) or along the small strip of flesh separating the nostrils (called an “open rhinoplasty”). Most people return to work in less than 2 weeks. Although preliminary results are evident after the first few months, the final results of rhinoplasty can take up to 1 year to fully develop.
