The aging process can be ruthless for the skin, and this is particularly visible on the face and around the neck. Exposure to UV radiation, subject to gravity and the passage of time changes to the disadvantage, and with these changes comes a decrease in satisfaction with the appearance. When a stranger looks at us in the mirror, we start looking for solutions that will improve what has spoiled the time. Plastic surgery is one of them. Is effective? It depends on whether we choose the right doctor.
Dr Szymon Kolacz is a plastic surgeon with extensive experience in improving the beauty of women and men. The hours spent in the operating room, and thus gained knowledge and experience led him to the level of specialization in plastic surgery. He sees his professional mission as improving the quality of life of patients, not just their appearance. Facial surgery is one of his favourite areas, because it brings extraordinary effects, and the variety of surgical techniques gives an individualized, beautiful and patient-desired effect.
If a grumpy or eternally worried facial expression has little to do with your mood, it is worth considering the cause and solution to this problem. The reason is usually the aging process, and thus too “loose” forehead skin falling along with the eyebrow line, making the face look tired. The solution may be the operation of raising eyebrows, which reduces this effect and effectively rejuvenates the appearance.
A modern face lift works under the surface of the skin, giving an unusually natural rejuvenation effect. Depending on the individual needs of the patient, the doctor can perform a full face and neck lift or miniface lift. During the operation, excessive, loose skin is removed and repositioned subcutaneous tissue, which gives the effect of a significant improvement in appearance.
In the heat of the struggle against aging, we often forget about it – the neck is aging as well as the face. The loss of collagen makes the skin lose its firmness, and gravity completes the work of destruction. Ugly, loose skin betrays more than we would like. Surgical lifting of the neck may be more helpful in this case than any other method.
Eye area is often one of the first areas showing signs of aging. The reason is the skin that is losing elasticity, which causes the eyelids to droop, bags and wrinkles under the eyes. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can reverse these problems, and thus significantly rejuvenate the appearance. The surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time.
Protruding, too big, asymmetrical – in a word: unattractive. If the ears are in any way disproportionate to the face and the entire head, it is worth thinking about a surgical operation. Ear surgery can handle most defects, making your ears ultimately unnoticeable.
