There are more anti-aging treatments and procedures available today than ever before. Many people are even able to treat themselves at home with special cosmetic devices. But sometimes, only the professional services of a plastic surgeon like Mr. Stephen Salerno can help when you are dealing with issues like sagging skin and severe folds and wrinkles. Our plastic surgeon can also help reshape your nose or slim down your body contours.
Injectable fillers certainly have their place in smoothing skin and diminishing wrinkles, but the facelift remains the undisputed king of treatments for sagging skin. It offers the most dramatic results in improving overly lax skin to enhance your facial profile and contours.
If you are getting a facelift, the first step is to be admitted where we can take your medical history, observe your vital signs, and go over some of the details of your surgery.
After anesthesia is administered, we form incisions around the ear, temple, and behind the ears, giving us access to tissues found on the face, neck, or forehead. We lift facial skin away from your face and reposition and tighten soft tissues underneath. Finally, we seal the incisions using sutures.
The result is a subtle yet efficient rejuvenating effect to the face. You can take years off of your appearance with a facelift. Mr. Salerno’s goal is to revitalize your face without taking away from your natural features. You’ll look like you, only with less wrinkles and less loose skin.
Tummy Tuck Procedure
Even if you are vigorously exercising and have a good diet, you may find the abdominal area is extremely difficult to keep toned. Things like weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and aging can lead to overly lax skin and muscles in the abdominal area.
Medically known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck procedure with our plastic surgeon involves the removal of excess and loose skin and fat to tighten and contour your abdominal wall muscles. This leads to a much more youthful, toned, and flatter stomach appearance. The tummy tuck is not considered as a type of weight loss procedure.
The extended tummy tuck is for patients with excess skin. The procedure involves a larger area of skin removal than the conventional tummy tuck, which makes it appropriate for those who have lost an extreme amount of weight. It may involve the repositioning of the naval to a higher position after the removal of excess skin.
