Effective treatment for severe wrinkles in Orange County
Men and women who visit The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery are often curious to learn from our team of professionals about the ways in which they can seek a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Wrinkle treatment is a popularly requested procedure for patients in the Orange County area. Individuals will often seek a method that is less invasive than plastic surgery, such as injectables. Injectables, including neuromodulators and dermal fillers, are wonderful for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles. However, more severe cases can only be addressed using plastic surgery.
A facelift is typically performed in an attempt to address sagging, loose skin that has developed deep wrinkles and folds. The skin sags due to the loss of collagen, which helps in maintaining youthful volume. Natural collagen stores are typically lost gradually after the age of 30 and continue over time. Volume loss results in skin laxity, which in turn develops fine lines and wrinkles on the face. When it becomes severe, many patients will notice sagging skin on the cheeks and around the jaw which may become a serious cosmetic issue.
The facelift is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Thuan Nguyen of The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Orange County. Patients will have proper anesthetics and will be resting while the procedure is performed. Skin is removed from behind the hairline and then the area is sutured back up. This allows the skin to be pulled tighter and therefore, smooth out the troublesome wrinkles and reduce the skin laxity.
If you live in or around the Orange County community and have considered a more aggressive approach to sagging skin and wrinkles, contact our team today to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Thuan Nguyen and his team. We encourage patients to speak with our professionals about the ways in which the skin can be treated when problems such as skin laxity occur. While dermal fillers and neuromodulators are often the first line of defense against sagging skin and wrinkle formation, more severe cases do require surgical intervention for noticeable results. Many patients consider this surgery an investment in their appearance and a way to maintain a more youthful look for many years to come!
