The facial skin is the most delicate skin of the entire body. Because of its delicacy, the aging process, environmental factors, sun damage, and stress all affect the appearance of the face. Wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and skin irregularities all contribute to people feeling self-conscious about putting their face forward. Laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure used to enhance the facial appearance by reversing these negative signs and revealing new skin. “Laser” stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, and laser resurfacing uses concentrated pulsating beams of light to treat specific skin cells to reverse damage.
As summer draws nearer every day, you may be curious about breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is a relatively simple procedure that adds volume to the breasts and improves the shape of the breasts. While huge breasts are typically viewed as slightly ridiculous and as a component to bad posture, full breasts tend to make women feel more feminine and attractive. Early spring is one of the most common times of the year for women to seek information regarding breast augmentation. They want to know how they can have beautiful breasts for summer so that they feel confident in their new clothes and bathing suit.
As people approach the age of 40, they often begin to notice significant changes in their appearance. While 40 is not considered to be “old age,” gravity has started catching up with people and taking its toll. Many people find that they look older than they feel. Their face has begun to sag, they look tired, and the youthfulness of their appearance has diminished. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is pleased to offer his own, unique approach to facelift called the Natural Uplift Facelift. Few surgeons have such an extensive background of training and education as Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones. Dr. Jones has studied under experts at Emory, Oxford, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford to become a plastic surgeon with far-reaching skills and a gentle spirit. He is the creator of the Natural Uplift Facelift, and he is pleased to offer this advanced facelift procedure to patients throughout the world.
Some scars are often seen as battle wounds with a good story behind it, while others are painful reminders of an accident or incident that left behind too obvious outcomes. Often, the most unwanted or painful scars are found on the face. People often categorize facial scars as deformities, which cause them to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists offers exceptional facial scar revision using skin grafts or flaps of skin from other parts of the body and Z-plasty.
The nose is the most prominent feature of the face, making it also one of the features that many people are most unhappy with. Rhinoplasty surgery (otherwise known as a “nose job”) is one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures throughout the United States. People see a nose job as a quick fix that will have a tremendous impact on their appearance. While this can be the case, nose jobs are one of the most frequently botched plastic surgery procedures performed. The greatest cause of patients being dissatisfied is that they did not do their research on the surgeon before trusting him or her with their face.
Many people are under the assumption that plastic surgery is only beneficial for women. While it is true that women made up the greatest percentage of cosmetic surgery patients, the percentage of male patients has been on the rise in the last decade. Men care about their appearance, and they often feel just as self-conscious as women do about growing older. One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men is neck lift surgery. This surgical procedure can be done as a singular procedure, or it can be combined with a face lift for more dramatic results. Many men are surprised to learn of their options regarding cosmetic surgery, yet they are available and highly effective for creating the desired improvements of their appearance.
When it comes to the appearance of the face, balance is one of the most general terms that is used to describe an attractive appearance. The lips play a huge role in the facial appearance. Not only do the lips provide a natural pleasantry, but they also have specific and significant roles that they must perform throughout any given day. The lips are essential for expressing emotions, and they are also necessary for proper chewing, eating, and speaking. Those with abnormalities, deficiencies, or who have experienced trauma to the lips often seek lip reconstruction for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
Lip reconstruction is a highly complex surgical procedure that deals with a complex series of muscles that control the movement and functions of the lips. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones leads Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists with the experience and reputation of a world-renown plastic surgeon that has successfully treated patients with deformities, injuries, and complications left behind from other surgical procedures (e.g. cancer removal).
Scars on the skin are a natural reaction when trauma or injury has occurred to the body. Falling down and scraping the knees or elbows, surgical procedures, and puncture wounds are common. Many people proudly boast about how certain scars were obtained as though they are “battle wounds” with a good story. However, some scars are more emotionally difficult to deal with, especially if they are visible or disfiguring on or near the face. Facial scars are often difficult to conceal, and they can cause those affected to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. Many people suffer from scars on the face as a result of severe acne in their younger years; however, other facial scarring occurs as a result of an accident, tragedy, or deformity. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is an expert in facial scar revision as a customized approach for treating those with unwanted or disfiguring scarring on the face.
The entire face consists of more than just your eyes, nose, and mouth. Your facial features include your hair line, cheek bones, chin, jaw line, and neck. The aging process affects all areas of the body, including all of your facial areas. It is not uncommon for different areas of the face to age differently on individual persons, but all areas will eventually be affected. Neck lift surgery is a common procedure in which the lower portion of the face is tightened and smoothed. This procedure is commonly paired with a face lift surgery in order to achieve the most dramatic results of the entire face.
The skin takes a brutal undertaking each day as the largest organ of the human body. As it is fully exposed to the sun, wind, all atmosphere, and other chemicals from lotions and clothing, the skin will show signs of reaction. Skin cells are created to replace themselves, yet when they linger on the skin’s surface they can build up and cause the skin to look dull and aged. Microdermabrasion is a process that helps to remove the dead, outer layer of skin and to stimulate the rejuvenation of younger looking skin.
