Have you been considering plastic surgery to look younger?
If so, you should know that for many people, the results of plastic surgery don’t always make you look younger – just different. Fortunately, you can easily avoid this risk and achieve facial rejuvenation that makes you look like a younger version of yourself rather than someone else. A nonsurgical facelift with dental procedures is a better option for many people when it comes to achieving a natural-looking rejuvenation.
Why Do Facelifts Make You Look Different?
A surgical facelift is intended to make wrinkles, jowls, and other sagging skin problems disappear. This is achieved by cutting away some of the skin and stretching the remaining skin over the facial structure. In theory, this will smooth the skin and eliminate wrinkles.
However, the downside of this is that all skin is treated as if it were “extra” skin. While facial aging can cause skin to lose elasticity and sag, it’s not the only reason that your facial skin may hang. For many, sagging skin is caused by a loss of facial support structure.
The facial support structure is the teeth and bones in your face. As your teeth wear down (or in some cases, as you lose them), the support structure shrinks… but the skin does not. So if your plastic surgeon simply stretches your skin over the shrunken facial structure, it can make your face look like a completely different person and also doesn’t address the root cause of the issue.
Nonsurgical Facelifts Address The Underlying Issue
A nonsurgical facelift uses dentistry to help rebuild your facial structure by building up worn teeth or replacing lost ones. This restores the vertical dimensions of your face, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Not only does this help your facial support structure, your smile will also be brighter and restored – another important part of looking younger.
What About Injectable Fillers?
One of the most common uses of injectable fillers is to augment the lips. What you may not know is that developing thin lips may occur because your teeth are worn. This compresses the lips and makes them look smaller. By restoring the teeth, your lips will look fuller and it can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth.
Another common concern is for people who need dentures. Conventional dentures do not replicate the youthful proportions of the face since they are often narrowed to help increase stability. This causes lips and cheeks to fold inward, creating a sunken appearance.
However, denture wearers can achieve the effect of a facelift by using FOY® Dentures. These revolutionary dentures restore the night and width of the teeth, so you will look dramatically younger than when using conventional dentures.
