Facial Rejuvenation: Plastic Surgery and Beyond

By Stephanie McIntyre & Kamau Austin

It is no surprise that we live in a youth-oriented culture. It

seems that every year the standard of beauty to which we are all

exposed and aspire, gets younger and younger at the same time

that Americans are growing older. Because of the emphasis in

prevention and treatment of disease, the American Baby Boomers,

those 50 and over, are healthier and more fit than people of the

same age in previous generations.

They have the stamina, energy and prowess of people half of

their chronological age. This causes many "Baby Boomers" to

exhibit an intense interest in procedures and techniques to help

them look as young and fit as they feel.

This is the point at which many Americans consider plastic

surgery. Signs of aging on the face are the most common

symptoms causing people to seek out plastic surgery. The four

most common facial complaints are:

Loose skin: The areas on the face where we see loose skin most

often are the jowls, the neck and the skin around the eyes.

Fine Lines: Tiny wrinkles on the face increase in number with

time and are more plentiful in lighter skinned people. The most

common sites are around the mouth and eyes but they can also

develop anywhere on the face. These lines are made worse by the


Bagginess around the eyes: Loose skin is only one of the causes

of bagginess around the eyes. Additionally, small fat pads

around the eyes can move from the top and sides of the eye

region and end up resting beneath the eyes. Shadows emphasize

the problem and if there is any inherited darkening of the skin

the problem becomes even more noticeable.

Exaggeration of Features: As we age, some of our features

continue to grow. Although the rate of growth is unperceivable

year to year, eventually, over time we can see that there is an

actual lengthening of our earlobes and nose. Our brow may have

lowered and there is an increase of fat below the chin, and in

the fold between the nose and upper lip.

All of these complaints can be addressed through plastic

surgery. The success, risks and benefits differ depending on

the areas of the face and neck the surgery is to correct, as

well as other factors such as the age of the patient and the

severity of the problem.

What is a facelift? The facelift is the classical surgical

response to aging problems of the face and neck. In a facelift

the skin is separated from the underlying tissue and pulled

upwards and backwards. The excess skin is them removed

resulting in a lifting and tightening of the appearance of the


There are varying procedures that go deeper, some as far down

as the layer adjacent to the facial bones. Surgeons determine

how deep to go with the procedure based on the needs of the

patient, on a case by case basis.

What results can you expect from a facelift?: A facelift will

lift the areas of your face that are sagging, such as your

cheeks and jowls. It will also tighten the loose skin on your

neck as well as remove excess fat from under your chin and

alleviate that "turkey neck" look.

What about scarring? The scars from a facelift can be

extensive, although not easily detectable. Scars will more than

likely extend from above the ear, down the front of the ear,

around the ear lobe, up the back of the ear, and into the

hairline behind the ear. There can be another incision beneath

the chin.

Most scars from a facelift are hard to see once they heal.

Scars can be camouflaged with make-up within three weeks and

should fade beyond detection in one to three months.

What complications can occur? Some of the complications that

can result from a facelift are: Hematoma, Skin death; facial

weakness or paralysis; attached earlobe (pixie ear) and open ear


What about lines and wrinkles? Although the results of a

facelift and other facial plastic surgery can be dramatic the

signs of aging that a facelift will not alleviate are wrinkles

and fine lines on your face. Additional procedures such as Botox

Cosmetic", laser resurfacing, chemical peels and dermabrasion of

the face are needed to address lines and wrinkle.

Is there a safer alternative to facelifts and other invasive

procedures? Amazing advances have been made recently in topical

preparations to combat the signs of aging. These topical

preparations are a safe alternatives to many of the invasive

procedures detailed above. One such preparation is Rejuvinol.

It is a unique nutrient-rich moisturizer that nourishes tones

and rehydrates for firmer, more resilient skin.

What benefits can be realized from Rejuvinol"? Users of

Rejuvinol have reported a 50-90% reduction in the appearance of

fine lines and wrinkles within minutes of application. They

report that the product diminish the appearance of forehead

creases, droopy brows, crow's feet, furrows, laugh lines,

feathered lips, and more. Additionally, it reduces the

appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, Rosacea, and enlarged

pores. It gives skin a plumper, more youthful appearance

What are the side effects of using Rejuvinol"? There have been

no reported side effects of using Rejuvinol".

Rejuvinol is a non-invasive answer to the question of what a

person can do to look younger. In most cases of fine lines and

wrinkles, Rejuvinol is as affective as Botox Cosmetic",

dermabrasion and chemical peels with none of the risk of

invasive surgical procedures and injections, at a

fraction of the cost of these procedures. For more information

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
