By the time an individual enters the 50’s, they are usually a fantastic candidate for some kind of facial plastic surgery procedure. The facial skin tends to lose elasticity with age, and in the 50’s the skin laxity shows more conspicuously. At the same time, a fair degree of elasticity is still intact to produce highly attractive and natural looking results.
Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) providing a comprehensive range of facial procedures to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding locations.
Facelift and Neck Lift
In the 50’s, aging, gravitational forces, environmental exposure and illness have usually taken some toll on the facial tissue and skin. This reflects in the form of deep wrinkles and lines, loss of facial volume and sagging skin in the lower, mid, and upper face.
Facelift and neck lift are two of the most effective cosmetic surgery procedures to rejuvenate deeper facial structures and restore a more youthful looking appearance. Fullness to the cheeks, jaw line and neck contours are successfully achieved with a combination of facelift and neck lift.
Liposuction of the Face and Neck
Some people in their 50’s will tend to accumulate unsightly fat deposits in the face and neck region, but their skin elasticity is still reasonably good. The facial plastic surgeon may recommend a limited procedure such as liposuction of the face and neck to sculpt the key features and improve definition.
A neck liposuction surgery can eliminate the appearance of double chin or triple chin and enhance the neck and jaw line. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for this surgery.
Loss of facial volume in the mid-face area can occur during the 50’s. This can give a depleted or sunken look to the cheeks and create deeper nasolabial folds. The surgeon may recommend cheek augmentation procedure, involving the placement of silicone or biocompatible cheek implants to restore volume and lift the mid-face.
The incision in case of cheek implant surgery will be made from the inside of the mouth. Therefore, no external visible scarring will occur. Some patients may choose a non-surgical alternative such as Juvederm Voluma derma filler injections to restore cheek volume.
A brow lift or forehead lift surgery can be performed to restore a younger look to the upper face. Heavily droopy skin in the brow area will make the face look angry, tired or old, and can also cause partial vision obstruction. A brow lift or forehead lift surgery can be performed to correct furrows in the brow and deep horizontal forehead creases.
You skin around the eyes is more sensitive and may tend to become redundant with age. People in their 50’s may choose upper or lower eyelid lift or both to restore more refreshed and youthful looking eyelids. Ptosis can also be removed along with eyelid lift surgery.
