Here is a question we often receive at The Langdon Center: how do I know if anti-aging surgery is right for me? While everyone is different, and each treatment or procedure uniquely tailored to them, there are a few telltale signs that surgery may be your best bet.
You Want Long-Term Results
Unlike other age-reversing treatments like laser skin rejuvenation and injectables, which typically last between 4-8 months, results from surgeries such as facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and brow lift are permanent. There’s no need for touch ups or maintenance. Dr. Langdon’s “No Frown” technique for frown lines is another popular permanent option here at The Langdon Center; this minimally invasive procedure disables the nerve function, providing long lasting relaxation of the muscle that causes frown lines.
Moderate to Severe Skin Laxity Is a Problem
Hanging skin along the jawline creates the appearance of unsightly jowls, and loose skin on the neck creates the dreaded “turkey waddle.” While laser skin tightening treatments such as SkinTyte® can tighten sagging skin, laxity that has progressed from moderate to severe is best treated with necklift and/or laser liposuction of the neck.
There Are Lines & Folds…Even When You’re Not Moving Your Face
Injectables like BOTOX® and Dysport® work great to eliminate the frown lines caused by facial expressions, but if you have lines across the forehead or laxity even when you’re not moving your face, surgery is the next step. Luckily, Dr. Langdon’s options for facelift, necklift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) and forehead lift are minimally invasive, posing minimal downtime and resulting in far less scarring than traditional methods.
You Imagine How You Would Look With Surgery
Do you pull your skin back to see how it would look post-surgery? If your day dreaming about surgical results like lifted skin, a decrease in laxity and no more wrinkles, chances are skin rejuvenation surgery is just what the doctor ordered.
