There are many reasons people choose to have facial surgery. Often a cosmetic procedure such as facelift or a eyelid surgery will correct features that detract from our appearance. Aging inevitable, and genetics can contribute to its effects, causing skin to lose its elasticity. The loss of facial volume as we age can create hollow cheeks, causing sagging skin and wrinkles. There are many options available to slow down and sometimes, reverse the aging process. Dr. Lowenstein is pleased to offer the following options to his patients in his practice:
Non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures such as Botox and soft tissue fillers may additionally help or often “buy some time” before surgery by reducing wrinkles or creating gentle, although temporary improvements in areas of lost volume. Skin peels can also be helpful improving the appearance of fine lines and pigment changes or brown spots. The newest addition to our non-invasive treatments is Ultherapy; non-invasive facial rejuvenation through the use of focused ultrasound.
