The aging face reflects the tired, drawn-out appearance of aging. Excess skin folds, undesired bulges, or drooping of the upper lids close to your pupils make you look tired and older than you feel. Gravitational changes and the effects of deflation are accentuated, producing significant bulges and irregularities from the forehead down to the neck. During your extensive consultation, Dr. Timek will not only demonstrate these findings, but also explain the various reasons for their occurrence. She will then provide you with realistic surgical and, if indicated, non-surgical options to address each of these areas.
For selected patients, minimally invasive procedures involving Botox, injectables, and skin tightening procedures may be appropriate. Older patients with more skin laxity and tissue deflation may benefit from face and neck lift, eyelid procedures, and fat injection. Based on the extensive clinical and basic science research on fat grafting, Dr. Timek has the expertise in fat harvest, preparation, and transfer that helps to restore the youthful facial contour. The end-result is a natural age-appropriate appearance that you will appreciate for many years to come.
