Aging Gracefully

The SPA at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A.

Plastic surgery was once considered for the young but today, the “on golden pond” generation is jumping into plastic surgery and achieving dramatic results. Could 60 be the new 40? Can 70 really be the new 50? For many, approaching the golden years signals an opportunity to turn back the clock through plastic surgery.

If you are bothered by the signs of aging on your face at any age, it may be time to discuss facial rejuvenation options with board-certified plastic surgeons Ben J. Kirbo, M.D. and Laurence Z. Rosenberg, M.D. who have achieved stunning results for patients throughout the Southeast.

Personalized surgical facial procedures are used to impact sagging in the midface, loss of volume tone that results in jowls, loose skin or fatty deposits under the chin and jaw or deep creases below eyelids or near the nose or mouth.

A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift can restore a more youthful appearance to the neck and jowl region by removing major wrinkles and sagging skin. It also helps to improve a tired facial appearance by smoothing the skin and reestablishing defined contours along the neck and jawline. It often is done in combination with other procedures like a browlift and/or eyelid surgery to create an overall youthful result.

Facelift surgery is done using general anesthesia or sedation and may take two to four hours. Sutures are typically removed seven days after surgery, but often it can take two to three weeks before most patients feel socially presentable. Results can be long-lasting.

For others, Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A. offers a variety of skin peels depending on individual needs that range from superficial peels to medium peels or deeper peels, which are often used to penetrate several layers of skin to treat severe lines and wrinkles.

A chemical solution is applied to the skin that is allowed to penetrate the skin. Over the next several to 14 days, the skin peels off. The superficial peel typically requires only slight discomfort and minimum peeling. The medium peel may take a few days longer to recover. The deeper peel has the longest recovery and the skin can remain red for three weeks and sometimes up to two months.

Chemical peels can be used for a variety of situations and can be highly effective in treating skin damage and the signs of aging.

Dr. Laurence Rosenberg has achieved considerable success with deeper peels when a phenol peel is applied. The phenol peel is very good for treating deep wrinkles, lines and long-term sun damage.
While this phenol peel is more invasive, a single deep peel can eliminate wrinkles and lines and may even tighten the skin.

Our physicians along with our specialized medical SPA team offer a variety of injectables and fillers to smooth wrinkles, reduce folds, plump lips, fill deeper lines and destroy under chin fats. Nonsurgical procedure treatment plans are customized for each individual to achieve their desired results.
