Is Cosmetic Surgery the Best Way to Banish Signs of Ageing?

cosmetic surgeryGrowing old is inevitable. Looking old is not. Cosmetic surgery that lifts sagging and tightens sagging skin is increasingly popular and affordable.

There are many reasons why people choose to have a facelift. Obviously vanity does play a part – it can be hard to adjust to seeing those crow’s feet and fine lines increasing every time you look in the mirror and if you can do something about it, a little procedure is perfectly acceptable. Others might consider a facelift for a specific skin issue, such as sagging eyelids or wobbling jowls.

The reality is that as we age, our skin loses its elasticity because it no longer produces the collagen that’s crucial for keeping skin plump and youthful in the same quantities. As the skin inevitably sags, our features begin to wrinkle and droop.

A facelift can offer a little help to slow the passage of time, restore your confidence and rejuvenate the one part of your body everyone can see at all times.

There are several different procedures you choose from. A lower facelift is used to tighten up the neck and jowls. A mid facelift smooths out the cheeks and lower eyelids. A thread facelift deals with facial sagging, smoothing the neck, jawline and cheeks. And a mini facelift will focus on certain areas, such as the neck, nose or around the eyes.

If you are uncomfortable with the idea of going under the knife for a facelift, there are non-surgical, non-invasive alternatives to consider. Microdermabrasion is one of them, a deep exfoliation that refines the skin with special medical grade polished crystals. These help speed up the process of collagen production and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

A chemical peel is another possibility. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, causing it to “blister” and peel way to reveal smoother and less wrinkled skin underneath.

Whatever kind of procedure you do plump for, make sure you do as much research as possible into the effects of the surgery or non-invasive alternative before committing to anything.
