In your 20s, skin is generally free of the signs of aging. Start a medically supervised treatment plan now to protect your skin from the harmful effects of sun and environment.

Proper cleansing, moisturizing, and use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily will help ward off early wrinkles and enlarged pores. Mild peels and topical treatments may help control acne.

Botox® injections can prevent lines and filler agents such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can be used to fill out smile lines and augment lips.

For unfavorable size and shape of body features, surgery may be in order. Rhinoplasty, otoplasty and other aesthetic procedures can often be performed.

Decreased firmness and skin elasticity are a natural part of aging. Introducing anti-oxidants into your skincare routine can help prevent sun damage that leads to lines and age spots. Also, alpha hydroxy acids in conjunction with retinoids and topical antioxidants can restore a youthful appearance to the skin.

Non-invasive laser procedures may improve fine lines, brown spots, and broken blood vessels. Botox® injections can diminish laugh lines and create a smoother forehead. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can be used to fill smile lines and augment lips.

For those in their 40s, damage caused by sun exposure become apparent. More aggressive skincare can help combat the visible signs of aging. A combination of topical solutions like tretinoin (Retin-A), AHAs, and BHAs, along with microdermabrasion brings the best results.

There are many procedures available to smooth and tighten skin. Photofacials, chemical peels, and topical treatments are effective in decreasing the signs of aging as well as minimizing pore size. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Juvéderm Ultra Plus® can help restore volume in the mid-face and fill smile lines. For upper face and forehead lines, Botox® injections may be in order.

For those who choose the surgical route, face, brow, eye and neck lifts are very popular procedures.

By age fifty, regular skin examinations by a certified aesthetician or plastic surgeon are essential.

Maintaining natural moisture is more difficult. Peels and light therapy in combination with ultra-hydrating home care can help maintain the balance. Laser resurfacing combined with fillers to restore volume can provide an impressive rejuvenation.

In all likelihood, more extensive facial rejuvenation and resurfacing procedures will be necessary at this stage. Depending on your appearance goals, comprehensive surgery can reverse signs of aging in the face, brow, mid-face, and neck areas. A facelift or brow lift in conjunction with laser resurfacing can yield dramatic results. The payoff for more invasive surgery is a natural, more supple look that is virtually undetectable.

Male Chest Surgery
(Gynecomastia Surgery)

Description

Many men develop excess skin and/or breast tissue on their chests. This condition is called gynecomastia and can be a cause for embarrassment and even discomfort. The exact cause of gynecomastia is still uncertain, but is likely related to an imbalance in hormones or the tissues linked to them. The condition can be treated with direct excisional surgery, liposuction, or a combination of these two procedures and can provide very pleasing results.

Recovery

General anesthesia is usually chosen for gynecomastia surgery, though local anesthesia with sedation may also be opted for. Recovery from swelling after the procedure typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks. The patient wears a compression wrapping around the chest for those first couple of weeks to reduce the swelling. Oral pain medication will be prescribed to control the usually minimal pain and discomfort experienced after the surgery. Many patients return to work as soon as 1 to 2 days after surgery. However, Dr. Maggi usually requires patients wait at least 3 weeks before pursuing exercise or other more strenuous activities.
