Considering how and when to fight the aging process with plastic surgery is a difficult question and requires an expert answer.

We’ve all seen it here in Phoenix. That person at Scottsdale Quarter whose face does not quite match her body. The lips seem bigger than any other facial feature. The skin pulled so tight that there is nothing natural looking about the face. When it comes to plastic surgery there is a major discrepancy between having that “done” look and having a few tweaks, making you look refreshed and rested and oh yeah, a little bit younger.

Facial Aging is a normal part of getting older. Depending on genetics, sun exposure and other factors like smoking, some peoples’ faces will age more quickly or slowly than others. Living in beautiful Phoenix Arizona, where pretty faces are the norm, how do you compete?

plastic surgeryThere are many fillers and neurotoxins on the market. These products when used properly can be an excellent non-surgical option to give a more refreshed appearance to the face. The “overdone” look that many plastic surgery patients have is usually because the injector lacks the experience or does not take the time to really assess the face and place the correct amount of product. In my Phoenix area office we take the attitude of “less is more.” We inject only according to the goals and desires of the patient and if it isn’t enough, you can always come back for more. It is hard to remove it once it is placed.

Fillers and neurotoxins are a good place to start. Over time, those seeking a more youthful appearance through plastic surgery might want to consider eyelid surgery, facelift or neck lift surgery, which addresses sagging skin that accompanies the natural process of growing older.
