Targeting the Signs of Facial Aging

Most people tend to think of the face as a single unit, but when your goal is to reduce or eliminate the signs of facial aging it can actually be much more beneficial to focus on its individual parts.  There are forty-three distinct muscles in the face, each capable of moving independently and causing wrinkles, and the various factors that cause facial aging, such as the loss of skin elasticity, loss of tissue volume, or even damage to the skin’s surface, can all affect each area of the face differently.  This means that some parts of the face may remain young and vital-looking even as others become areas of concern.  By targeting only the specific facial features that need to be addressed, the board-certified plastic surgeons at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. can achieve exceptionally natural looking plastic surgery results with less post-surgical downtime.

Targeting the Signs of Facial AgingForehead and Brows: Deep, horizontal creases across the forehead and heavy, hanging brows can be smoothed or subtly lifted with an endoscopic forehead or brow lift.

Eyes and Eyelids: Drooping eyelids and puffy, under eye bags can be alleviated with eyelid surgery, while wrinkles around or between the eyes can be softened with Botox®.

Cheeks and Mid-Face: Sagging skin and loss of tissue volume that cause facial wrinkles and folds can be addressed with a mini-facelift and fat transfer techniques.

Neck and Jowls: Skin that droops past the jaw line can often be lifted with a traditional face lift, while a proverbial “turkey neck” is best treated with a neck lift procedure.

Every face is unique and ages differently, but these targeted procedures allow us to customize facial rejuvenation treatments to each patient’s individual needs, giving them subtle, natural looking results.  During an initial evaluation and consultation, many of our surgeons even use advanced plastic surgery technology to give patients an opportunity to examine digitally simulated, three-dimensional computer pictures that can effectively illustrate their potential results.  If you are interested in learning more about the other plastic surgery procedures that we perform and what they might be able to do for you, please contact Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. at to schedule an appointment.  Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for the latest plastic surgery news.
