It can seem like the more you age, the looser your body becomes. Not only are things like your buttocks a little more loose but your skin is as well. From the skin on your stomach to the skin around your face, it can feel a little more than depressing to see your skin start to lose elasticity. Luckily, here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, we offer a variety of surgical treatments that can be used in order to tighten your otherwise loose skin. Read on to learn more.
As you age, you have to face the inevitable: your skin loses its natural elasticity and sometimes can resemble more of a bowl of jello than actual skin— especially the area around your middle. And if you have had children and been through at least one pregnancy, then the skin around your middle section can really start to lose it’s elastin and form. Luckily, by getting a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) done, you can get your taut stomach back in virtually no time at all. By removing excess skin and fat from the abdominal region and then tightening the skin by lifting it a little, a tummy tuck will give you results that you would otherwise never be able to achieve— no matter how much lotion or firming gel that you use.
Have you started to notice that the skin around your face is starting to look a little looser? Have you looked in the mirror on more than one occasion only to think that you are starting to resemble more of a turkey than a human due to old age? If so, you are not alone. In fact, it is only a natural part of the aging process to lose the collagen and elastin in your face and neck. Luckily through a facelift, you can help to lift and tighten the skin around your face and neck in order to give you back the face that you recognize.
Aging doesn’t have to be a depressing process. That’s why here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, we offer surgical procedures to help restore your skin back to its once youthful self. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants today.
