Those who choose to have cosmetic surgery do so with careful consideration and research before they make their decision. Not only does choosing to have elective surgery a brave decision, but it also requires time and money set aside for this specific purpose. Taking care of the skin immediately following surgery is crucial in achieving optimal results, but many people neglect to care for their skin after the healing process has completed and an extended period of time has gone by. Any time cosmetic patients choose to ignore the protection of the skin, they are choosing to reverse the achievements that were made through the cosmetic procedure that they had done to improve their appearance. It is essential that everyone protect the skin of the face during the summer months, but it is critical for those who have undergone cosmetic enhancements to protect their skin in order to protect the investments that they have made through cosmetic surgery.
As the “windows to the soul,” the eyes tell a great deal about a person – including one’s age. More than telling a person’s age, they can also give a false impression on one’s age; and no one wants to look older than s/he actually is. Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid is a cosmetic surgical procedure that helps to improve the appearance of sagging, tired eyes. This is a specialized procedure done to address the bulging bags of loose skin and sagging tissues which should support the lower eye area. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists has the skill and expertise of an experienced double board certified plastic surgeon to achieve natural looking results with facial rejuvenation procedures. Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid allows patients to restore their youthfulness by taking years off the face.
When it comes to your face, it is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. However, your smile probably says more about you than anything else. A smile that is easily given to others makes people feel that you are friendly, approachable, and confident in your own skin – all qualities that make a great friend, co-worker, employee, neighbor, and acquaintance. While your smile says a great deal about you, it may be saying things that you wish it would not: your age. Over time, the skin around the lips begins to thin, causing wrinkles to form around your smile. The lips also tend to lose their fullness, causing your smile to sag and lose its luster. If your smile is showing your true age, or perhaps making you look older than you actually are, it is time to inquire about Restylane injections. This non-surgical lip augmentation restores the smile’s fullness, youthful appearance, and beauty.
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).
