The one thing that we can all count on is aging! With the passage of time, as you age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stress of every day life can be seen in your face and neck. You will not find it easier to look at these changes in the mirror because the images in the mirror and in your mind are not the same.
Unlike other surgeries, cosmetic surgery involves the restoration of youth through the manipulation of the face and body both surgically and non-surgically. Many procedures exist to restore the youthful appearance and as such, this plethora of choice leads to confusion and misinformation. One aspect of cosmetic surgery that produces mass confusion is deciding what to do for the face, neck and chest.
A good way to decide what to do is to first identify the problem areas and choose a procedure that will correct the problem. Wrinkles, Age-spots, Loose (extra) skin, Fat, Laxed Muscles, Small chin, Unwanted hair, Blood vessels, Loss of Volume, Forehead lines are common problems associated with aging.
