When we are young our skin is smooth, resilient, and elastic, but as we all know it very seldom stays that way. When the skin ages, the collagen and elastin fibers that act as a kind of support structure begin to gradually weaken and break down, allowing the facial features to sag and wrinkles to form. In the past twenty-five years that I have been practicing as a board-certified plastic surgeon I have had an opportunity to study thousands of faces at every conceivable stage of development, and so I am very familiar with the progression of facial aging. Here is a visual representation of some of the more common signs of aging that can affect the face as well as the cosmetic plastic surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that can best address them.
All faces age differently, and so there is no single course of treatment that is universally appropriate for all patients. Instead, it has always been my facial rejuvenation philosophy that the best way to combat facial aging is with an individualized, gradual approach, where we sit down together in consultation and go over your specific needs so that we can together determine what combination of treatment options will produce optimal facial rejuvenation results for you. If you are interested in learning more about any of the non-surgical facial rejuvenation or cosmetic plastic surgery procedures that I perform and how I can help you, please contact me, Dr. Fernando Burstein, so that we can schedule a full consultation.
