The Threats of Ageing and Procedures You Need to Do to Look Younger

Jan 30 2021

Everyone grows old, it’s the way of life. Like most things that are used daily, people wear out too – organs will likely start to fail, the hair will be white and sparse, and the skin will start to look leathery and filled with lines. It’s a natural process that everyone goes through – luckily some age slower than most people – but it’s not the end. There are plastic surgeons in Toronto that will offer you a lot of plastic surgery treatments that would successfully reverse a few years.

Aside from taking good care of your health and leading a strict lifestyle, there are treatments that can successfully remove a few decades from your face and body. Here are a couple of treatments you can go for to make you look years younger:

You probably eat a lot of food before and drink a lot of alcohol when you were younger, but when age crawls in, your metabolism crawls too. Your metabolism is the reason why you remain fit and being more active compared to now. When you feel lazy most of the time and your metabolism can’t keep up burning calories you eat, you gain weight and eventually become fat.

With liposuction, you can reverse this effect as it removes fat from places that usually get plump as you age (belly, neck, thighs, arms, and hips). You will see the results almost immediately but in order to keep your new physique, you need to start living a healthier lifestyle as fat develops after a while.

Eyelid Lift

As you age, the tissues responsible for keeping your eyelids in tight become looser and your skin will start to droop because of the lack of support. Aside from looking sleepy, grumpy, or unapproachable all the time, your peripheral vision will start to be affected too. An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can make you look younger and refreshed.

This is usually suggested by plastic surgeons in Toronto for people who are 35 or older or suffering from ptosis. It rids the excess skin surrounding the eyes and provides a better vision and a youthful and approachable look. It also fixes the irregularities of the eye shape that’s common in old people. 

Breast Lift

Ageing usually works hand in hand with gravity – everything will start to sag. Women who are ages 35 and above usually suffer saggy breasts and it can actually affect your posture. Aside from that, it can actually be discouraging for some women to wear clothes they used to love as it doesn’t fit them ‘the right way’ anymore.

Breast lift or mastopexy surgically lifts up your sagging breasts by removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue for a better shape. It’s one of the common and the best plastic surgery in Toronto – and it really improves your self-esteem after doing so.

Good Lifestyle

While there are a lot of good surgeries you can go for, it won’t make a difference if you won’t adopt a healthier lifestyle. You have to keep a tight schedule for exercising, day and night beauty routines, and a proper sleeping pattern. How you live your life affects your body, and it shows on your skin. By changing your lifestyle, you will be able to take a few years off your body successfully.

Doctors usually recommend this first to their patients before suggesting treatments. Usually changing something in the diet can help retain your youth and keep your weight in check. A strict lifestyle usually goes a long way. 

Dermal Fillers

Estheticians in Toronto suggest this to people who detest skin wrinkles, folds, and drooping. Usually treated on the face, this is commonly used to rid your face of facial lines and retaining the youthful volume of your face. These are injected in areas that would help reconstruct the skin and look more natural.

This is also injected on the lips for a fuller effect – and having full lips can reduce a couple of years off your face. It’s known to be long-lasting and there are specialized injections that stimulate the skin to produce more collagen for a youthful glow.

Vein Removal

One of the things that can be really unattractive when ageing is the varicose veins. The plump and dark veins are usually seen around the thighs to the knee pits, and it can sometimes discourage women to wear shorts and skirts because of this. The fastest way to remove these is through ablation, phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.

There are other ways you can get rid of these pesky varicose veins by yourself, but it usually takes a while for results to be visible. You can wear compression stockings, move a lot, practising elevating your legs as a habit, and a good amount of exercise. If it still won’t change after a while of doing these practices, it’s better to turn to the experts.

Chemical Peel

This might sound daunting, but it’s one of the best facials in Toronto and only performed by the best. It has a long downtime, but it’s guaranteed to be effective. Years of sun damage, acne scarring, and discolouration can really be discouraging, but chemical peel facial is one of the most powerful (and probably one of the most painful) in facials.

It gets rid of the damaged layer of the skin – clearing dead skin cells, damaged areas, and made the scars less visible. It only removes the layers damaged and exposes the younger and youthful skin layer below it. While usually done on the face, it can be applied on other damaged areas too – chest, neck, arms, and legs.

While there is a lot of high-end technology that preserves youth, it’s important to do your part as well. Taking good care of your health and sticking to a better lifestyle can do wonders – but if it can’t be helped, contact us and our plastic surgeons and estheticians in Toronto will be more than glad to help you.
