As women enter their forties many common aging signs tend to appear in what can seem like overnight, including crow’s feet and fine lines. While hydration, nutrition, and retinol wrinkle creams can help with minor cases, the choice to undergo plastic surgery to turn back the clock can be daunting. For this reason, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy offers Band-Aid procedures for women who are just beginning to see the telltale signs of aging and may not be ready for a traditional facelift yet seek more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Sometimes, the best option to combat early signs of aging is to take a tiered approach to addressing problem areas, improving them gradually.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more women from the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo procedures that address sagging eyes and wrinkled foreheads than any other procedure. The skin around the eyes is very thin and prone to show wrinkle redundancy. Both Band Aid Blepharoplasty and traditional blepharoplasty restore the alertness of youthful eyes by removing excess fat and sagging skin. Laser resurfacing to lighten dark circles and brighten the eye area is often performed in combination with the procedure, as are browlifts, which raise the eyebrows while smoothing out wrinkles on the forehead to erase the tired appearance that often accompanies aging.
In addition, according to their findings, facelifts are the most popular cosmetic procedure for those 55 and older. Traditional facelifts address jowls, jawlines that have lost contour, sunken cheeks and additional signs of aging by removing excess fat and tissue. Because skin continues to age no matter what procedure you choose, results are not permanent. However, facelifts slow the appearance of aging in the face and it is generally agreed upon among patients that the facelift procedure can lift 8-12 years from a patient’s face depending on the their lifestyle. According to Dr. LeRoy, for patients who are not yet ready or do not need to undergo a comprehensive facelift, a mini Band Aid Facelift utilizes smaller incisions to decrease similar signs of aging with subtle changes and can lift as much as 10 years from a patient’s face.

With over twenty years of Atlanta cosmetic and plastic surgery experience, Dr. John LeRoy has based his practice on providing natural looking plastic surgery results for the face, breast and body procedures he performs. While there was a time, many years ago, when facelifts meant visible scars and a dramatic change in appearance, the opposite is true now. In fact, there has been a major push from consumers for more natural looking facial plastic surgery results, especially from eyelid lift surgery (blepharoplasty).
Covered in the news recently, television host Julie Chen admitted to having blepharoplasty at the urging of her then agent and boss to appear more alert on camera. Dr. LeRoy often hears from patients who want to minimize the signs of aging as well as bags underneath the eyes and a permanently tired appearance. Blepharoplasty is repeatedly one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures with 204,000 cosmetic eyelid surgeries reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2012 alone (up 4% from 2011).
There are two traditional versions of blepharoplasty: upper blepharoplasty which addresses upper eyelids and lower blepharoplasty with addresses bags (fat deposits) underneath the eyes. Dr. LeRoy has also developed a mini-eyelift technique, Band Aid Blepharoplasty, for those patients just starting to notice the signs of eye aging. Depending on your cosmetic needs, Dr. LeRoy may suggest one type or a combination approach to address concerns above or below the eyes. To obtain the natural-looking eye rejuvenation results that patients expect Dr. LeRoy also offers supplementary treatments: Band Aid Laser Skin Tightening can address skin texture and tone around the eyes and along for forehead. Additionally, injectable treatments such as Botox® or Dysport® may be performed to eliminate crow’s feet and maintain the vitality of our plastic surgery results.

Just like there is no one singular “age” appropriate for facial plastic surgery, there is not a particular age that makes a patient more suitable for laser treatment like Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing. The type of cosmetic treatment recommended for your concerns will depend largely on the severity of the signs of aging present as well as your history of other cosmetic procedures.
For many previous mini facelift patients, as well as those who’ve had other facial cosmetic procedures, Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing is an effective option for restoring a more youthful appearance. Using the power of DOT, fractionated CO2 laser technology, this treatment creates microscopic perforations in the skin’s surface that the body then heals with new, younger looking cells. This action also promotes the skin’s ability to produce collagen, the structural fiber that gives young skin its suppleness and tone.
Advantageous over traditional laser technology as well as machines that use a less comprehensive energy source, Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing can produce visible cosmetic improvement in skin tone, surface texture, and evenness with one treatment. Similar to Dr. John LeRoy’s other Band Aid Plastic Surgery procedures Laser Skin Resurfacing is completed in-office with gentle numbing.
Dr. LeRoy encourages all patients, whether they are receiving a chemical peel or traditional facelift, to protect their skin and slow the future signs of aging by wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen daily,refraining from smoking and staying hydrated.
