With today’s culture focusing on outer beauty as much as they’re focusing on inner beauty, more people than ever will consider going under the knife in the coming year, and these are the procedures most likely to tempt new patients:

The Ponytail Facelift
Most women have probably noticed that when they put their hair up in a ponytail, it helps to pull the skin tighter over their facial features. This gives them a more youthful appearance by lifting the cheeks, jowls, and brows simultaneously.

A new and less-invasive technique, the ponytail facelift mimics this effect and incorporates fat transfers to help further sculpt the facial features. There is no cutting of the facial tissues, and the scars are located in a way that remains hidden underneath the patient’s hair.

Because the skin is pulled up and not to the sides, it does not result in the same artificial appearance that some patients develop after multiple lateral facelifts.

This procedure is designed for younger patients who would like to enjoy the benefits of a more youthful appearance without the invasiveness of a full facelift.

Benefits of Ponytail Facelifts include:

  • Lifts and arches the eyebrows into a pleasing shape
  • Gently improves the youthful appearance of the upper eyelid without cutting
  • Restores the jawline to prevent squaring due to age
  • Restores facial volume

While this cosmetic procedure has been around for quite some time, it has been steadily growing in popularity lately with a 44% increase from 2013-2014. Many patients feel shy at first discussing this area of their body with a stranger, but patients who choose to undergo the procedure discover that it can make them feel more confident and more in touch with their bodies.

Just as breast surgery was once taboo, labiaplasty is becoming an easier topic to speak openly about and women of all ages are finding self-confidence by going under the knife.

There are many motivations for undergoing this treatment. Some patients do not like the appearance of their genitals and simply want an aesthetic improvement, while others are more concerned with practical matters such as riding a bike or feeling bulky in a swimsuit.

There are three different types of labiaplasty that can be used depending on the patient’s desires: Labia minora reduction, labia majora reduction, and clitoral hood reduction. For more information about the options available to you, contact Dr. Sliwin’s office today!
