Anti aging treatments are among the most popular plastic surgery procedures. From liposuction and fat transfers to chemical peel procedures, men and women around the world are willing to take extreme measures to achieve the appearance of rejuvenation. Here, we’ll look at a few of the most popular procedures designed to combat signs of aging: chemical peel procedures, liposuction, and facial fat transfer.
Chemical Peel Procedures
Skin that has experienced the adverse effects of sun exposure, acne, or age often appears uneven, wrinkled, spotted, or scarred. Chemical peel procedures are designed to help skin look smoother and younger using a chemical solution to smooth the skin’s texture by removing damaged outer layers. Also known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling, chemical peel procedures are one of the least invasive ways to improve skin’s appearance. Though they are mostly used on the face, they can also improve the skin on a person’s neck and hands. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, they chemical peel procedures can combat:
- Acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough or scaly skin
- Sun damaged skin
Liposuction and Facial Fat Transfer
In recent years, improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and much less painful. One type of liposuction, Vaser liposuction, is performed under local anesthesia so that patients are completely awake and able to talk. Because of that, they are able to have the procedure while standing, allowing any imperfections to be seen and corrected more easily. Liposuction is often used for men and women who want to get rid of stubborn fat deposits.
However, it can also be coupled with fat transfer procedures to restore fat loss in the midface, reduce wrinkles, and raise sagging skin. Essentially, fat transfers are a sequel to liposuction during which the fat removed during liposuction is injected into an area requiring plumping. They are sometimes used to make faces appear younger, but are also popular for reshaping the buttocks in a procedure known as the Brazilian butt lift.
There is little doubt that anti aging treatments like chemical peel procedures and fat transfers will continue to enjoy considerable popularity. Such procedures help us in our never ending quest to look more youthful and feel better about our appearances. See this link for more references.
