While there are many advantages to growing older, most people don’t appreciate the changes it brings to their appearance. Unfortunately, the first areas to show physical signs of aging tend to be the most visible features: the face and neck.
When this happens, it can make you feel self-conscious about the way that you look and lead you to seek out options for facial rejuvenation. At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, we can help to restore your natural beauty and build up your positive self-image.
Injectables and Fillers
One effective way to impart a more youthful look is by receiving non-surgical, non-invasive injectables. There are a handful of anti-aging injectable treatments on the market today, but Botox is hands down the most popular of the choices. In fact, last year alone there were more than 3 million Botox treatments performed.
By using a Botulinum toxin, this FDA-approved treatment successfully reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. When injected, the solution works by stopping the muscle contractions that cause these dynamic wrinkles to appear.
Dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Radiesse, are another great way to smooth out wrinkles and restore facial volume. While fillers won’t permanently remove your lines and wrinkles, they are a great option for reducing their overall appearance.
If your aesthetic concerns are with the nasolabial folds that form between your nose and mouth, you’ll find the best results with the Restylane filler. It can also be used to treat marionette lines, which extend between the corners of the mouth and jawline, and even vertical lip lines.
Radiesse is another filler offered at our practice, and is well-liked for its ability add instant volume to the face. This hydroxylapatite-based filler can correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and even restore a more youthful appearance to the backs of the hands.
We offer a wide variety of both injectables and dermal fillers, so you can be sure your individual needs will be met and exceeded.
While aging is an inevitable part of life, many people help this process along with their bad habits. Sure, things like smoking, eating unhealthy and not exercising can play a big role in how you look over the years. But there are other factors that play a role in your aging skin, too.
It’s never too late to start making changes to your health.
While maybe not as instant as receiving injectables or fillers, small lifestyle changes can help to successfully turn back the clock on your aging skin. Here are a handful of rituals that can create a more refreshed, youthful-looking appearance:
- Incorporate a daily skincare regimen (wash, exfoliate and moisturize)
- Actively apply sunscreen during time spent outdoors
- Keep your skin hydrated—inside and out—by drinking water and applying lotion
- Eat nutritious foods
- Keep moving, even with light activities like walking
When Surgery is the Best Option
We get it—nobody wants to undergo surgery. But if your facial wrinkles and volume loss have resulted in dramatic skin laxity and sunken features, facial remodeling may be your best bet.
Dr. Hamawy and his qualified team have many years of experience in plastic surgery and can effectively restore your unique facial concerns. At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, we offer a handful of procedures that can enhance your appearance, but considering which option is right for you will depend on your individual goals.
If you’re ready to claim your independence from your aging appearance, some of our most popular procedures include:
This surgical procedure is a great option for those looking to lift their sagging cheeks and diminish excess fat beneath the chin. Also referred to as a rhytidectomy, a facelift can effectively eliminate the deep frown lines between the nose and mouth, restore lost volume and add life to your sunken facial areas.
For those looking to address problem areas around the eyes and upper and forehead, a brow lift can be a great option. This procedure can effectively address drooping eyebrows and forehead lines that often create an angry, sad or tired appearance. Also referred to as a forehead lift, a brow lift can impart a more youthful, rested complexion and help to improve your overall self-esteem.
Do you feel like your confidence has dipped due to the excess fat on your neck and chin? With a neck lift, we can remove or reposition that excess fat and skin to create a more slender-looking lower face and neck. Dr. Hamawy is extremely talented in performing this procedure, and can eliminate your “turkey neck” to reveal smoother neck contours in its place.
There are a handful of benefits, both aesthetic and functional, to receiving an eyelift lift. This surgical procedure is a great way to restore youthfulness to your face by improving the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. Not only can Dr. Hamawy remove the drooping skin and dark circles beneath your eyes, but he can also help to restore vision that has been impaired by loose, saggy skin.
