For many women, fifty ushers in the most exciting and productive time of their lives. Completely comfortable in their own skin, confident and strengthened through decades of trials and tribulations women in their fifties often possess an inner grace that is hard to resist.
Looking back, I remember when Oprah Winfrey turned fifty in 2004. Her very public declaration that she had never felt happier or more self-confident was met with a bevy of enthusiasm from fellow celebrities, career women and homemakers alike. America’s first lady, Michelle Obama shared similar sentiments on her fiftieth birthday this past January. In an interview with People Magazine she professed “a greater sense of calm, certainty, maturity and confidence” than she did when she was younger. Adding to the idea of what it means to be fifty in the 21st century Michelle Obama decided to celebrate her big day with a blowout dance party.
Undoubtedly we are living in a historical moment when women get to express themselves as vibrant, radiant individuals at every age who can look as good as they feel.
Mirror Reflections in Your Fifties
Feeling great on the inside is a fabulous and just reward for a fiftieth birthday and beyond. Here at Nova Surgicare, we want to ensure the reflection you see when you look in the mirror looks just as good as you feel or better.
Toward that aim, we’ve developed what we like to refer to as the 1, 2, 3 approach to turning back the clock.
Skin clarity and texture
Sagging skin, reposition muscle tissue
Lines and wrinkles
1. Refining Your Skin’s Clarity and Texture
In one’s fifties, irregularities in skin tone and texture become more pronounced. Sun spots, age spots, broken capillaries and dispersed patterns of fine lines and wrinkles are quite common as the skin thins and loses its elasticity.
If you’ve postponed the use of lasers and light based therapies, now is definitely the time to add their therapeutic benefits to your anti-aging protocol. IPL treatments can erase skin discolorations without downtime, while advanced technologies such as CO2 Laser Resurfacing and MicroLaerPeel allow us to both tighten the skin and increase collagen production in the deeper dermal layers. Following treatment, skin not only looks younger, it also “acts” younger, functioning the way it did in earlier years.
2. Lifting Sagging Skin and Muscles
Hereditary genes and lifestyle choices play an important role in how well we age. However, at a certain point all of us will experience the inevitable sagging skin and loss of muscle tone and bone associated with advancing years. Facial cosmetic surgery provides a number of viable solutions to reverse the effects of time. With a skillful and masterful approach muscles, tissue, fat and bones can be re-draped into more harmonious and youthful proportions.
Cosmetic Surgery Solutions to Consider in Your Fifties
Endoscopic Brow Lift: to erase forehead creases, lift the arch of the brows and give the top portion of the face a more youthful appearance.
Eyelid Surgery: upper eyelid surgery will eliminate sagging, creases and folds apparent with age. Lower eyelid surgery can address pockets of fat and creases in the under eye area.
Midface Lift: lifts sagging facial folds and repositions muscle and tissue in the area between the lower eyelid and mouth. Cheek implants can also be recommended during surgery to provide the midface with shapelier contours.
Lower Facelift: addresses sagging skin and loose jowls in the lower portion of the face. Excess skin is removed, while skin and muscle tissue are repositioned to give the chin and jawline a well-defined and younger looking silhouette.
3. Smooth Lines and Wrinkles
Injectable neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin still play a pivotal role in the anti-aging arena for women fifty and older. Regularly scheduled treatments relax lines and wrinkles and prevent new lines from forming. Additionally, injectable facial fillers can be used to enhance facial volume and extend the rejuvenating benefits of facial cosmetic surgery.
