We all will get wrinkles, creases, frown lines, and droops before it’s all over. Exposure to the sun, the thinning of collagen, the loss of elasticity, gravity, genes and lifestyle all work against a youthful look. Can there be anything worse than having frown lines when you are in a great mood? We tend to look older than we actually feel, but cease your worries. There are plenty of solutions to turn back the clock. One of the most effective is facial contouring.
Facial contouring can be a surgical or non-surgical procedure. Contouring could include: liposuction on the face, lip augmentation, dermal fillers, face lift, cheek implants and chin implants.
Dr. Shoib Myint, the internationally recognized founder of Myint Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery says that facial contouring takes the entire face into consideration that often necessitates addressing more a single location or procedure. “Contouring really is an artistic endeavor that uses medical cosmetic procedures to create a beautifully proportional face”, says Dr. Myint. “Cosmetic surgeons today have so much more to work with than a knife because of the remarkable products like dermal fillers. Separately or in tandem with surgery they can offer remarkable results.”
Facial contouring surgery is a process of taking, adding, and moving. Bone or soft tissue is reduced where needed and the patient’s own soft tissue is used to fill in other areas. A good example is lower eyelid surgery where the bags under the eyes is used to fill in the sunken hollow of the eyes.
One of the more popular forms of facial contouring are the non-surgical methods using dermal fillers. These fillers add volume in areas instead of surgically removing excess skin or tightening sagging skin. Patients love these fillers because there is no knife and no down time. However, it is not permanent and requires additional treatment every couple of years.
Dr. Myint feels that managing and meeting a patient’s expectations is a significant part of the facial contouring process. “If a patient expresses a definite desire to have a long term solution, then you need to prepare them for a surgical procedure and not try to convince them on something that is non-invasive, says Dr. Myint. “Likewise, if a patient is older they have lost a lot of fat in the face, so a facelift may not be as effective as fillers or fat transfer in addressing the hollow parts of the face.”
If you desire that ageless face, then let Dr Myint provide you with the Facial Contouring that is right for you.
