Facial Rejuvenation at Lexington Plastic Surgery

From wrinkles to sagging skin, it’s natural for your face to change over time and lose the tautness it had when you were younger. Genetics, aging, sun exposure, stress and lifestyle all play a role. But there are many options to make things better.

Todd Lefkowitz, MD, FACS, board-certified plastic surgeon with Lexington Plastic Surgery, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice, offers a variety of services for facial rejuvenation.

And it’s not just for women. Men make up an increasing percentage of outpatient plastic surgery business.

“No matter the reason for desiring aesthetic improvement, my only objective is to help guide each of my patients through their journey in achieving their individual goals,” Dr. Lefkowitz said. “That can be accomplished by a range of both surgical and non-surgical office options.”

1. Facelifts. As we age, tissue under the skin drops, causing the jowling and softening of the jawline you notice with facial aging. A facelift restores the tissue to its youthful position. It will sharpen you features and redefine the jawline.
2. Necklifts. With sagging and excess skin or fat from aging, the neck can show signs of aging before the face. A necklift can create a sharper, more sculpted neck that has youthful tautness. The procedure can also remove fatty deposits.
3. Eye Lid Surgery. Excessive upper eyelid skin, bags under the eyes and skin wrinkles near the eyes can make you look older and tired, even when you’re well-rested. An eyelift can help.
4. Facial treatments. These non-surgical enhancements leave your skin feeling naturally refreshed and rejuvenated. They can be performed on their own, or in conjunction with other procedures.

Types of facial treatments:
Botox®: Over time, facial wrinkles and lines form as muscles contract and move. Using small injections in target facial muscles, Botox® safely stops excessive muscle contractions and prevents the creation of forehead lines and crow’s feet

Chemical Peels: With repeated exposure to sun, gravity, dirt and more, you may notice more wrinkles, larger pores and changes in pigmentation. A chemical peel can reverse these changes. This procedure involves applying a solution to the skin to remove the topmost layer. It stimulates new, healthy skin production with more even pigmentation and a younger appearance.

Facial Fillers: As we age, gravity weighs down our skin and some areas of the face become more pronounced with folds and wrinkles. Fillers, made from a naturally occurring substance in your body, restore volume naturally lost during the aging process, especially in the area between the cheek and mouth.

Kybella®: Fat under the chin is common and may be resistant to diet and exercise. Kybella® is an injectable treatment that destroys these fat cells and improves the appearance of what’s commonly called a “double chin.” Patients need up to four treatments to achieve the desired result.

“My ultimate goal is to provide my patients an unparalleled experience from start to finish on their journey,” Dr. Lefkowitz said. “Individualizing every treatment plan to each patient’s aesthetic goals carries a significant responsibility, but one which provides me a great deal of satisfaction.”

Dr. Lefkowitz is a dual board-certified plastic surgeon with a staff who spends hours training in every detail of the practice. Their expertise produces excellent outcomes.
