New Year’s resolutions are always hard to keep. We make grandiose plans for ourselves but often fall short in the execution for one reason or another. If you intend to look your best this year, follow these 7 procedures to get in the right frame of mind for a fresh start in the new year!
A facelift is designed to largely reduce many signs of aging in the lower face and neck to help improve the overall quality of a person’s facial skin. Whether your goal is to combat the effects of gravity or gain a more youthful appearance, a facelift can help! The procedure uses surgical techniques to tighten skin and muscles attached to the face and reposition fat and muscle that has been lost over time. In addition to reducing wrinkles and fine lines, a facelift can give you a more youthful appearance by lifting your face and jowls.
Regardless of the weight you have lost, or what type of dieting you have attempted, a stubborn belly bulge may be nearly impossible to get rid of. A tummy tuck can give you a well-toned look by tightening your abdominal muscles and reshaping the midsection. This procedure works best for individuals who are not too overweight and those who have experienced significant weight loss through other means.
Breast Implant Exchange or Revision
Breast implants are great for a more youthful look. However, they don’t last forever and may lead to counter-productive aesthetic changes through the aging process. If you have become unhappy with your implants over time, a breast implant replacement can result in a look that better represents the curves you want to have.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you want to get rid of old acne scars or other blemishes from years past, laser resurfacing may be the procedure for you! Laser resurfacing works quickly to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and resurface the top layer of skin. This procedure is an effective form of acne treatment and can also reduce or eliminate scars from various other types of dermatological issues.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Our eyelids become droopy and sag as we age, causing us to lose our youthful alert appearance and be less confident. If you are dealing with the effects of aging on your eyelids, eyelid surgery may be able to help! An eyelid lift can tighten sagging skin and muscle on the upper and lower lids to restore a more youthful appearance. Generally, this procedure includes an incision made near the lash-line or above-closed eyes for optimal results.
Laser Hair Removal
If you are sick of shaving, waxing or any other forms of hair removal, laser hair removal may be the ideal solution for you! Laser hair removal targets the melanin found in hair follicles. Once the melanin is targeted, it will heat up enough to destroy the hair at its root. Multiple laser treatments are done on the same area, and your hair will get thinner and less visible over the course of several treatment sessions! This procedure can also help slow down or even prevent the future growth of unwanted hair in certain areas of the body.
New Year, New You
The procedures listed above may be perfect for you if you’re dealing with the effects of aging and want to get in the new year looking your best!
