REDUCE SIGNS OF AGING WITH A BROW LIFT

In time, the signs of aging will appear in all areas of the face, especially the forehead. As you age, the wrinkles between your eyes and across your forehead will intensify and your eyebrows will begin to drop, decreasing the distance between your eyebrows and your eyelashes. This is a natural result of reduced elasticity in the skin.

If you’re tired of letting time rob you of your youthful appearance, then it’s time to speak to a plastic surgeon about a brow lift. A brow lift can restore your youthful vibrancy and give you a more rested and refreshed appearance. It can reduce the signs of aging in your face and give you the appearance you desire.

IMPROVE MINOR SIGNS OF AGING WITH A MINI LIFT

Noticing minor wrinkles and loose skin in the neck can be an early sign of more problems to come as you age. If you’re concerned about how your facial appearance is changing from the effects of time and gravity, but the changes you’re experiencing aren’t significant yet, you can benefit from a mini lift.

A mini lift is the ideal solution for people who are experiencing the early signs of aging in the lower face and jawline area. The procedure can soften deeper facial wrinkles like marionette lines and the nasolabial folds. It is most effective when the neck has minimal loose skin, fatty deposits, or muscle banding. It can also be combined with other procedures to add further definition and more skin-tightening benefits.

With a mini lift, it is possible for you to retain or restore youthful good looks. Contact Dr. Stephen Fink, a board-certified plastic surgeon, to learn more about the procedure and how it can benefit you.

IMPROVE THE LOOK OF YOUR SCARS WITH REVISION TREATMENT

After suffering a traumatic injury, the body’s natural healing process will cause it to develop a scar at the site of the wound. Scars vary in shape and size and can either be raised or depressed. Depending on the location, it can be difficult to keep them hidden.

Scars can be a major source of insecurity for people who have them and have a hard time keeping them hidden. However, there are plenty of scar-revision methods available to people who want to soften the appearance of their scars.

Minor scars can be treated with topical silicone products. With regular application of these products, the scar can even flatten out over time. Hypertrophic scars can be improved with injections of a medication called Kenalog or by using serial laser treatments. Scars can even be removed or redirected if your surgeon expects them to heal better a second time.

Whether you’re suffering from a minor scar or something more severe, scar revision can help you improve its look and make you feel better about your appearance. Contact us to learn more about scar revision and the benefits it can provide you. Dr. Stephen Fink, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, will address any questions and concerns you have about the procedure.

COMPLEMENT YOUR FACELIFT WITH FRACTIONATED LASER RESURFACING

As you age, your body’s collagen production will begin to decrease and the elasticity of your skin will begin to lessen. This will cause your face to become more prone to wrinkles and other signs of aging. With the help of a plastic surgeon, however, people undergo the facelift procedure to eliminate the signs of aging. But what happens when a facelift alone isn’t enough?

While facelifts are a wonderful way to eliminate the signs of aging safely and effectively, there are times when patients are looking for even greater results than a facelift can provide. By treating the skin with a resurfacing laser, you can stimulate the collagen in the skin tissue to promote new growth. This helps tighten the skin and promotes faster healing. It can be focused on one area of the face or multiple regions.

If you want to give your facial aesthetics a boost after undergoing a facelift, consider complementing it with a fractionated laser. Contact us to learn more about the benefits these procedures can offer you. Dr. Stephen Fink, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will answer any questions you have and help you throughout the entire process.

BENEFITS OF COMBINING LIPOSUCTION WITH A FACELIFT

Your face is an important feature. Not only does it represent a major part of your identity, it is also integral to making a good first impression. If your facial appearance consistently looks worn down or tired, it can affect the way people view you and can take a toll on your confidence.

If your face and neck aren’t as toned as you would like or don’t look as youthful as you desire, you can get a liposuction procedure and combine it with a facelift. By combining the two procedures, you can reduce the fullness beneath your chin and on the jawline while improving the contours of your face for a smoother and more pleasing look.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Fink has the skills and tools necessary to help you improve your facial features and enhance your youthful glow. Contact us to set up an appointment to learn more about the procedure.

COMMON SIGNS THAT INDICATE THE NEED FOR A BROW LIFT

One of the most important components of your facial expression is your eyebrows. The eyebrows are a prominent feature on your face, and when they sag, it is very noticeable.

There are several indicators that you should look for to help determine if a brow lift is the right course of action. Here are some of the common signs that indicate a need for a brow lift:

• Your eyes appear droopy.
• You look tired and less alert.
• You look older than you actually are.
• You are noticing more lines and wrinkles across your forehead.

A brow lift can help correct these issues and rejuvenate your youthful good looks. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Fink, an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon, to learn more about the procedure.

WHAT ARE SYNTHETIC FILLERS?

Getting older tends to make us become more aware of our appearance. When our youthful looks begin to disappear, many of us begin searching for ways to hold on to them for a bit longer. For this reason, there have been a great deal of innovations in cosmetic treatments that help reduce the signs of aging. As a result, synthetic fillers have become a popular means to rejuvenate one’s youthful looks.

Synthetic fillers are commonly used to treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, thin lips, and other areas of the face. Your surgeon may choose from a selection of fillers, including:

• Juvederm
• Radiesse
• Belotero

Unlike liquid silicone, synthetic fillers like these will harmlessly absorb into your body over time, reducing the chance of any complications. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits that synthetic fillers can provide, contact our office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Stephen Fink, a highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, will help you obtain your ideal results.

TOP BENEFITS OF MALE EYELID SURGERY

Your eyes are an incredibly important facial feature. They serve as indicators of your mood and emotions. They can communicate to others how interested you are in what they have to say and how alert you are in any given situation. However, eyes that have succumbed to the effects of aging may cause you to give the wrong impression, making you look tired, sad, or irritated.

If you’re a man who is constantly in the public eye and has to interact with a number of people on a daily basis, you can benefit from an eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty. The procedure is a highly effective method for making the eyes look brighter and more energetic. Your eyes will effectively portray the correct emotions, making it easier to show when you’re happy and confident.

If your eyes are starting to look tired and haggard, even when you’re feeling happy and alert, it might be time to consider undergoing a blepharoplasty. Dr. Stephen Fink, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will help you rejuvenate the look of your eyes to make you look and feel young again. To learn more, contact our office today!
