Try a lifestyle lift in Charlotte
If you live in Charlotte NC and you want to look five or ten years younger, you need a lifestyle lift in Charlotte. One element of this lift is the use of injectable fillers. These fillers are good at hiding smile lines and changing the shape of the lips to make the fuller. As we age, the subcutaneous fat under the skin of our faces shrinks and sinks. Fillers provide a replacement.
Two popular fillers are Restylane and Perlane. These are both made of hyaluronic acid, a gel that is easy to inject and molds well, but doesn’t last long. RADIESSE is calcium hydroxylapatite in gel. This lasts a year or more.
Brow lifts, deep plane facelifts
The centerpiece of a lifestyle lift in Charlotte NC is most often a surgical procedure such as a deep plane facelift or a brow lift, accompanied by the use of fillers. In an endoscopic brow lift, the surgeon inserts an endoscope under the skin of your forehead to study the attachment of skin and muscle directly. The surgeon then lifts the skin up and to the sides, reversing the usual aging pattern in which time and muscle activity force it to migrate down and to the center.
A lifestyle lift in Charlotte can also include a deep plane facelift. In this form of surgery, the surgeon adjusts the skin and the deeper tissues of the face, and makes an incision under the chin to lift the fatty tissues in the neck area. The surgeon sometimes also shaves the backs of the submandibular glands (two of the salivary glands) to improve the look of the patient’s cheeks. He or she can let you know if this will work in your case.
