Will be the first time to do something about my face, and I don't know if I need surgery or .... what?

I'm 45 years, perfectly healty.

I would like to see and be seen by a doctor that can advise me what are the steps needed.

Thank you

I’d like to think that I guide my patients in a way that they maintain a nice youthful look without looking what I call “overly plastic.” Many patients in their mid-40s can have very nice results with fillers and Botox alone. There are some at this age that have significant facial aging and can benefit from facial rejuvenation surgery like a facelift. I would have to see you in person determine what would be best for you.

Generally at that age start with minimal facial rejuvenation: chemical or laser peels, professional skin care, Botox, fillers. If you have very saggy skin then a mini-facelift can work nicely at 45. Hope this helps!

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Best to see an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to discuss facial enhancement/rejuvenation treatment options. They should be able to listen to your concerns and offer you the best treatment options to get to your goal results.

Thank you for your question. I always recommend before seeing a doctor that you first think about what areas you would like to see improvement in. Many patients focus on what procedure they need, but they may actually not be a great candidate for that procedure, or there may be a better option they're unaware of. Once you have an idea of what improvements you are looking for, set up a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. He or she can make recommendations based on your goals, lifestyle, and budget.

Best of luck to you!

Cosmetic Surgery is a collaborative effort of patient and surgeon. Typically you would simply voice your concerns and the surgeon will offer a range of possible solutions based upon your anatomy, goals and budget etc. At your age there are many minimally invasive procedures that may be appropriate. A consultation should answer all your questions. Best of luck

It is never to early to begin taking care of yourself, and maintaining your appearance. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon should be the first step. There are multiple options, neurotoxins, fillers, and surgical procedures to be discussed based on your concerns.
