As the weather gradually gets warmer and the days begin to grow longer, it’s natural to start looking forward to spring. Soon, we will see the first flowers begin to bloom and awaken to birdsong every morning.
If the changing seasons have you dreaming of making other changes in your life, you’re not alone. Here are our top 10 face and body procedures to have you looking your best this spring and throughout the year to come.
1. Brow Lift
For patients whose faces have aged in such a way that they appear to be constantly frowning or tired, a brow lift is often the ideal solution. A brow lift can help patients appear friendlier and more approachable, with eyes that are more open. A brow lift is a surgical procedure designed to reposition the muscles under the forehead to reduce wrinkles and frown lines and deliver a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Constantine specializes in performing this surgery to provide a subtle correction, so you won’t have to worry about having a permanently startled appearance.
2. Eyelid Lift
Many patients who are concerned with their aging appearance opt for an eyelid lift, which is also called blepharoplasty. Dr. Constantine can perform this procedure as a stand-alone surgery, although many patients also choose to get an eyelid lift in conjunction with a brow lift. Blepharoplasty is an effective way to remove excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids, which can help patients look younger and more alert. The procedure is ideal for patients who have drooping eyelids, dark circles or puffy bags around their eyes.
3. Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is a safe and effective procedure that uses an implant of your own body tissue to restore lost facial volume for more natural-looking, longer-lasting results. In this procedure, Dr. Constantine will remove tissue from an inconspicuous “donor” area of your body — typically the thighs or belly — and inject it into your face or lips for a plumping, contouring effect.
4. Juvéderm, Voluma, Radiesse and Restylane
Juvéderm, Voluma, Radiesse and Restylane are FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers that can be strategically applied to areas of the face that have lost volume or become wrinkled. These fillers are a non-invasive option for looking younger and are bio-compatible, since they are based on substances our bodies produce naturally. These injectable products are designed to add volume to cheeks, plump up lips and improve the look of lines that form around the mouth.
Botox is another injectable treatment that helps resolve wrinkles and fine lines. However, unlike the products listed above, Botox is not designed to fill in wrinkled or sagging skin. Rather, it uses a purified neurotoxin to temporarily paralyze the underlying muscles of the face, which allows wrinkles to soften as a result. Botox is particularly effective at addressing the vertical frown lines that form between the eyes, as well as the horizontal furrows that develop on the forehead. Dr. Constantine often uses Botox in conjunction with dermal fillers to create an even longer-lasting result.
6. Chemical Peels/Laser Resurfacing
Chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments can improve the look of many skin conditions, including discoloration, sun damage, acne, wrinkles, redness and enlarged pores. These procedures lead to younger, tighter and healthier-looking skin, and result in a noticeably younger and more refreshed appearance.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that may be right for you if you maintain a healthy body weight, but still struggle with pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure involves making a small incision near the area of the body that needs to be contoured, then inserting a small tube under the skin and suctioning out the fat with a small, powerful vacuum. Liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment, but rather a procedure to reshape specific areas of the body where excess fat has accumulated. The most common areas where Dr. Constantine performs liposuction are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.
8. Tummy Tuck
We all dream of achieving the flat, tight abdominals we see in the movies. Unfortunately, many women and men alike are genetically predisposed to accumulate unwanted belly fat, and sometimes even the most diligent workout routine isn’t enough to help us shed the weight. A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgery that removes excess fat and skin from the abdominal region to create a noticeably smoother, flatter and firmer stomach.
9. Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation
Breast lifts and breast augmentations are procedures that can help restore women’s confidence in the appearance of their breasts. The effects of aging, in addition to pregnancy and breastfeeding, can cause breasts to sag and appear flat. In a breast lift, Dr. Constantine repositions the breasts to create a more youthful, uplifted appearance. Many patients choose to combine their breast lift with a breast augmentation with implants to increase both the size and fullness of their breasts.
10. Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a blanket term to describe a combination of procedures that can help women who are struggling with their self-confidence after one or more pregnancies. The mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck to tighten sagging stomachs and remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, as well as a breast lift. The procedure is highly individualized depending on each patient’s goals, so Dr. Constantine can work with you to give you the results you want.
