COSMETIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES FOR THE AGING FACE

Our culture puts a heavy emphasis on preserving youthful appearance as long as possible. Aesthetic medicine offers a variety of methods to reverse the skin aging, including skin exfoliation, dermal fillers, botulinum toxin, ablative and non-ablative laser treatments, thermal treatments  (coblation, thermage), roll-cit, Aptos threads, gold threads and many others. A shared feature of these treatments is their low invasiveness, resulting in a relatively short period of downtime.

These procedures allow to obtain a moderate improvement in wrinkles, sagging, and skin elasticity, and therefore may be used in less advanced changes. In order to reverse the far-reaching effects of aging, it is necessary to perform  plastic (cosmetic) surgery procedures.


The most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures for the aesthetic enhancement of the aging face include:

  • zcorrection of the face and neck,
  • correction of the upper and lower eyelids,
  • lifting the cartilaginous skeleton of the nose,
  • deep chemical exfoliation of the skin.



Those procedures bring the desired results in terms of beauty enhancement. However, they are quite invasive and associated with an increased risk of complications, compared with aesthetic dermatology procedures. The risk is reduced by wide practical experience of the surgeon and proper postoperative care.
