Here's the cliché: one morning, you look in the mirror and suddenly realize you're capital-O Old. Here's the reality: over time, the little things that bug you about your appearance have stretched, sagged, or expanded. Some say these changes in our bodies are just the nature of getting old. But at Wang Plastic Surgery, we believe in the nature of looking great. The search for the fountain of youth continues as it has for centuries, but until it's found, people over 50 can take comfort knowing that Dr. Wang has the tools and techniques to keep them looking fit and healthy.
Face the World with Renewed Confidence
The biggest cosmetic concern for most older Americans is the aging of their face. Thankfully, we offer a number of procedures and treatments that can help you take years off of your appearance.
Many of Dr. Wang's mature patients need surgical correction for their cosmetic troubles to achieve the revitalized look they want. Today, there are more options than ever before to help you look your best. For instance, a common concern for people over 50 is that their eyes appear tired and saggy, giving the people they meet the impression that they are disengaged from life or not feeling well. Blepharoplasty , or eyelid surgery, can help you look young again by removing loose skin and fat deposits above the eyes and bags and puffiness below the eyes. Patients generally appear more rested and vibrant.
Another common concern Dr. Wang hears is that facial skin has begun to sag around the jaw line or on the neck. By performing facelift surgery, Dr. Wang can achieve a tighter, smoother facial appearance. For an even more vibrant look, Dr. Wang also offers dermabrasion to smooth fine wrinkles, scars, and other minor imperfections. Dermabrasion is particularly good at minimizing the appearance of age spots and fine lines around the mouth.
For mature patients who want to maintain their appearance after surgery or who have been treated pretty well by the hands of time, non-surgical treatments offer a great way to refine minor imperfections and keep looking your best. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, almost one million Americans over age 55 sought treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic last year. BOTOX® Cosmetic can help you reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. Another popular facial treatment is chemical peel, which can be used to restore skin on your entire face or in a targeted treatment area. Also, Dr. Wang offers several tissue fillers, including Radiesse™, Restylane®, Hylaform®, and collagen, to fill in wrinkles and other trouble spots that make you appear anything but young and energized.
Help Your Body Look Its Best
Just because you've aged, you have to give up looking sexy. You can fight gravity and aging with several popular body procedures. Many of Dr. Wang's patients choose liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits. If you eat right and continue to exercise, liposuction offers you the ability to slim trouble spots. Though of course you shouldn't expect to look 20 again, most liposuction patients are happily surprised by what the procedure can do.
Other popular surgeries include breast lift and tummy tuck. A breast lift does just what it says, reversing the effects of gravity by raising your breasts to a more youthful position. Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, smoothes and firms the skin in your stomach area by eliminating loose skin and fat tissue. For a comprehensive makeover, you may want to consider combining these procedures, and you also may want to have Dr. Wang perform liposuction. After meeting with you at your personal consultation, Dr. Wang will recommend a surgical treatment plan based on your desires and your medical history.
