As time marches on, our skin will lose its elasticity and firmness. You will also see more lines and wrinkles. Thankfully, there are a number of procedures to help tighten the skin and give you an overall more youthful appearance. Both surgical and non-surgical procedures can be used to tighten your skin, and which is used depends on what you are trying to achieve.
Surgical Skin Tightening
There are several types of skin tightening procedures we offer at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland. The following are just some of the skin-tightening surgical procedures we provide:
If you want a flat tummy with tight muscles and plenty of tone, the tummy tuck is the perfect solution. The process removes excess fat and skin and tightens the abdominal walls. Most women who opt for the tummy tuck have stubborn fat and loose skin from pregnancy, excess skin and fat from significant weight loss, or cannot achieve their tummy flattening goals through diet and exercise.
The facelift is used to tighten the skin on the face and diminish the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other visible signs of aging. The procedure can easily shave 10-12 years off your appearance and give you a more youthful and refreshed look. The results can last for over a decade.
If you’re struggling with excess skin and unwanted fat on your arms, an arm lift is the perfect way to remove both and give you the toned, shapely arms you’ve always wanted. The surgery only takes a few hours, and the results can last for years.
Whether you’re struggling with loose skin, excess fat, or both on your thighs, a thigh lift can ensure you achieve a smoother and firmer appearance. The procedure takes only a few hours, and you’ll see the results in six months or less.
If diet and exercise are no longer providing the results you’re looking for, a thigh lift at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland may be the perfect solution. With proper diet and exercise, the results can last for ten years or more.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Not ready for surgery? Non-surgical skin-tightening procedures are less invasive and have a shorter recovery time while providing significant results. They are a great option for individuals who need less work and don’t want to deal with going under the knife.
For the threadlift procedure, tiny permanent sutures are placed under the skin to lift the tissues, minimize sagging skin on the face, and diminish wrinkles. While it’s not as dramatic as a facelift, the results can still last for years.
Because dermal fillers add volume to specific areas of the face, they can also tighten sagging skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. How long the results last can depend on the type of dermal filler used. We use both Restylane and Juvederm at the Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland.
When used strategically, Botox can tighten the skin around the neck and jawline while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By temporarily stopping certain muscles from contracting, you can simultaneously smooth and tighten the skin.
