When it comes to looking your best, you need to eat right, be well rested, and exercise regularly. Of course, even those steps won’t completely eliminate all the wrinkles and sagging you may have on your face. Dealing with wrinkles and fine lines means meeting with a skilled Ottawa, Ontario plastic surgeon to learn about your many options for anti-aging treatment.
When it comes to eliminating those lines, wrinkles, and folds, there are plenty of surgical and non-surgical techniques to consider. Some may only target certain parts of the face, while other may be able to help in different areas. While the list that follows below is by no means complete, we’d like to take a moment right now to look at some of the most popular anti-wrinkle treatments out there and what they involve.
An Ottawa, Ontario facelift is a great option for dealing with those wrinkles and lines in the middle portion of the face. If there is any sagging skin in that part of the face, a facelift is ideal as well. Incisions for the facelift will be concealed behind the ear so that they are barely even noticeable. Through these incisions, excess tissue will be removed and the reaming skin tighted.
For the lines and furrows of the forehead, a brow lift is the best option. The brow lift will tighten the facial skin of the upper part of the face to remove deep lies that leave you looking worried or tired. As with the facelift, the incisions for the brow lift will be hidden in the upper hairline to ensure they are unseen.
The eyes are truly the windows to the soul, which is why taking care of sagging or drooping around the eyes can make you look much younger. A cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can help reduce the sagging and wrinkling of the upper eyelid and can also address puffiness or bagginess of the lower eyelid area. The surgical method will depend on the needs of the patient.
One of the most popular non-surgical options for wrinkle reduction available today, BOTOX® injections are both safe and effective. BOTOX® injections will freeze the muscles in the injection site, reducing contractions and thus preventing wrinkles from forming there. Repeat injections can be safely performed as needed every few months.
To learn which option is right for you, you need to meet with Dr. Peter Brownrigg in person. A skilled cosmetic surgeon in Ottawa, he will determine which surgery, non-surgical treatment, or combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures would best meet your needs. He’ll also be able to answer all of your questions in greater detail.
