Factors Affecting Facial Aging
The basic factors which lead to facial aging include sun damage, gravity, smoking, muscle activity, genetics and resorption of subcutaneous fillers such as fat. Each of these must be taken into consideration to assure a successful surgical experience. An experienced face surgeon, Dr. Murphy takes the time to consider all of these prior to formulating a surgical plan. This concept is the keystone to his success in establishing outstanding results in facial rejuvenation. Gravity leads to drooping of the facial skin and brows. Sun exposure leads to fine facial wrinkling, pigmentary changes, loss of collagen, disorganization of elastic fibers and a predisposition to skin cancer. Eighty percent of the aging of the skin is related to sun exposure. It leads to an overall degradation of the skin with thinning of the skin and increased depth of lip lines. Crows feet and frown lines between the brows are classic signs of facial aging due to muscle activity. Loss of fillers beneath our skin such as collagen and fat is a cause of facial aging frequently ignored by facial surgeons. Reversal of these effects can make the difference between a good result and a great result. Family traits are present in all of us and patients must make the decision whether they like a hump in their nose or a little excess skin in the neck area. Is your chin too small? These are all discussed during your consultation for facial surgery.
Facial aesthetic surgery has become the area of cosmetic surgery affected most by innovation and change. It seems that every day there is s new technique being touted in magazines or on television. The difficulty is in determining which of those new procedures are truly effective and safe and are likely to become established in the practice of facial plastic surgery. Dr. Murphy won’t be the first to do a new procedure on any of his patients. He brings only the most advanced proven techniques and technologies which he feels are safe and effective. He will not allow any of his patients to be guinea pigs for new questionable procedures.
The concept of complete facial rejuvenation may be considered during your consultation. Frequently patients will have a combination of face surgery procedures performed at the same time to achieve a uniform improvement of their face to assure harmony and balance of the various areas of their appearance. Some patients will only have one or two procedures depending on their goals or desires or perhaps financial requirements. Dr. Murphy works closely with you and his staff to achieve your individual facial surgery goals.
