As we grow older, our skin thins and loses elasticity, fat atrophies, and bones slowly shrink. Together, these changes yield a lack of skin support to the skin ultimately leading to the appearance of jowls, sagging, lines, and wrinkles. Sun damage and other chemical factors further hasten this aging process over time. Tissues around the eye become weak, which causes visible bags and pouches. However, these changes can be dramatically decreased and slowed with appropriate facial rejuvenation.
There are multiple ways in which Dr. White approaches these changes with a personalized touch in his clinic. Facial fillers, such as Restylane, Radiesse, Juvéderm and Perlane, can help to restore facial volume and fill lines. Fat injection and LAVIV can accomplish this in a longer lasting, possibly permanent facial rejuvenation. Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) are excellent adjuncts to fillers to soften wrinkles and create a less active brow and crow’s feet. Dr. White often combines these techniques with facelift surgery.
Face lift surgery (rhytidectomy) manipulates the skin and deeper tissues to reset the position of the facial muscles and smoothen facial wrinkles. This is particularly effective in treating jowls along the jaw-line and sagging neck skin with or without bands. Incisions are hidden just in front and behind the ears. By combining a lift with volume restoration, Dr. White provides a natural, 3-dimensional approach to change the effects of the 4th dimension, time.
