Top Anti-Aging Surgery Combinations
It seems like more and more people are always trying to chase the “fountain of youth”. With the prevalence of social media, such as Instagram and Facebook, young and older people alike feel the need to always look younger. While many people go the non-invasive route when it comes to cosmetic features, such as Botox, those that are older or want a complete transformation look for full-on plastic surgery procedures.
If you are someone who wants to know the best way to get the full-on younger look, then this article was written for you! Even if you are satisfied with your appearance, someone that you may know may want to know what is the best combination of surgery options for them.
This is a type of cosmetic procedure that requires incisions at the bottom half of the face and the neck. The surgery shapes to ‘lift’ the face up by reducing skin folds, wrinkles and sagging. In addition, the surgery also reshapes the jowls, jawline, and in some cases the neck as well.
This type of cosmetic surgery is a great option for those who are in their late 40s and up. While fillers and Botox do a great job at filling in fine lines and wrinkles, they can only do so much. Also, the older a person gets their skin becomes more resistant to less invasive treatments such as these. Since Botox and other filler treatments also wear off, a lift to the face is a longer-lasting option.
While this is a great option, it is always a good idea to talk about the different types of lifting available. In the past, the only options for these procedures were full-on invasive types of lifting. Today, many plastic surgeons such as Dr. Andrew Jacono are performing what they call ‘mini facelift procedures.’ It is not a fit for everyone according to Dr. Jacono’s website, but it is the perfect middle ground for those who are looking for something less invasive but more permanent.
Dr. Jacono also performs different types of face lifting procedures such as his Minimal Access Deep Plane (M.A.D.E.), SMAS Facelift, Short Scar Facelift, and a variety of other facial procedures are performed based on each unique patient’s needs.
The best part about these lifting procedures is that there is minimal downtime and less scarring. Unlike the facelift surgeries of the past, they are made to look more natural and less plastic-like.

Face and Neck Liposuction
In addition to getting a lifting procedure done on the face, it may also be a good idea to get some liposuction done on the face and neck area. It may be necessary for those that have a lot of dropping and fat on the neck area so that the lifting can look more polished and natural.
Liposuction is also a great option for men who don’t want the ‘I just had surgery look that lifting can sometimes give off. By just removing the excess fat and sagging skin can give them more natural looking results.
The way that face and neck liposuctions are done according to isaps.org is actually not as scary as it may seem. Face and Neck liposuction is an outpatient procedure with the patient usually going home in a couple of hours. The fatty tissue is removed by a cannula and a vacuum-like device that helps shape areas like the jawline as the fat is taken away from the face.
Once the procedure has been done, most patients report a more ‘complete’ look when done in conjunction with lifting procedures to the face. Also, the liposuction promotes more skin elasticity and minimal platysmal banding that can ruin the ‘naturalness’ of the surgery.
Fat Transfer to the Face
Even though someone may get a lift or liposuction to take care of the problem areas they may have, sometimes that is not enough to get the youthful glow they are looking for. Other times other areas of the face, such as the cheeks may be hollow looking. Well have no fear, a fat transfer is here!
A fat transfer is a procedure done by using a person’s fat from other places on their body as a filler for them. Fat transfers are a more permanent type of filler because they take longer to wear off on the body.
To qualify for the fat transfer a person must gain some weight. The best candidates for this type of procedure according to plasticsurgery.org are those who don’t smoke, are committed to a healthy lifestyle, and those who have a plan to keep their skin healthy.
In addition to giving out qualifications for the perfect candidates, the website also tells the reader how the procedure is done. A fat transfer to the face starts off by determining the perfect donor area, or the place where the fat will be taken from. For most patients, this is usually the abdomen on the buttocks. A minor surgical procedure will be done to harvest the fat from the area.
While this is a great procedure, those that are interested need to keep in mind that it is usually irreversible and may require multiple treatments to get desired results.
There is one more treatment that is recommended in connection with other plastic surgeries. Laser resurfacing is a treatment that reduces facial wrinkles, acne scars, and other pesky skin irregularities that may come up as apart of the aging process.
While not as invasive as the other treatments mentioned above, it can really help a person to complete their overall cosmetic makeover. According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgeons, there are different options for everyone’s needs. These include, but are not limited to Pulse Dye Lasers, Fractional Lasers, IPL, and others.
