Enhance Your Look, Don’t Change It

Oct 07, 2016 05:05PM, Published by Staff Writer, Categories: Beauty +Style, Acadiana Life, Health, Lifestyle



In today’s times, there are many available options to enhance your appearance. These vary from advanced skin care products, minimally invasive procedures and injectable fillers, to time proven facial plastic procedures. After meeting with patients during their cosmetic consultation, the question that should be answered pertains to the end result the patient is looking for, and my recommendation of what modality is best suited to help the patent achieve that result. It is after this visit that a “blue print” for your face can be created, as the best results come from thorough evaluation and planning.

In your twenties and thirties, medically supervised skin care should be your primary goal, including daily use of sunscreens and use of retinols and antioxidant serums to improve and maintain your skin. It is during this time that the use of Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can be used to diminish the frown lines between the eyes and crow’s feet that have begun to develop. 

In your late thirties and forties, we begin to experience volume loss in the temples, around the eyes and cheeks.  It is also during this time that the nasolabial folds begin to deepen. Here we use fillers to augment these areas and lighten the shadows that are caused by volume loss. Skin care procedures, such as oxygen facials, micro-needling and silk peels with the infusion of chemicals to nourish and plump your skin can help brighten your skin.

In your fifties, sixties and seventies it may be time to consider facial rejuvenation surgery. A minimal incision brow lift and blepharoplasty can enhance your eyes’ appearance, while a short scar facelift, or “J-lift” can remove your jowls and tighten your neck. 

Skin tone and texture can also be improved by use of the fractionated C02 laser which effectively improves facial skin tone and texture, with only a 3-5 day downtime before you can resume your normal daily activities.

Although many people consider facial plastic surgery as being superficial and vain, it can often boost self-image and self-esteem and improve one’s quality of life. As a fellowship trained board certified facial plastic surgeon with many years’ experience, I strive for a beautiful, natural looking result which enhances your appearance and self-esteem.

Dr. Jeffrey J. Joseph is a fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon who is double board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as ear, nose and throat surgery. Dr. Joseph has lectured on both local and national levels on various facial plastic surgery topics. He is a partner in the group Acadian Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery.
