Popular Wrinkle Treatments

Age-and-LASIK-SurgeryThe natural aging process can have a major impact on your appearance. Skin may droop or sag, wrinkles can form, and the way you look may not be as appealing. It’s true that some wrinkles will confer a certain amount of dignity and maturity, but sometimes you wind up with a few wrinkles too many. That’s where the services of a Sydney plastic surgeon come in handy. There are many different options for facial rejuvenation to consider. These treatments can help remove wrinkles and make you look much younger and livelier than before.

Surgical and Non-Surgical Options for Wrinkle Reduction

There are surgical and non-surgical treatments for anti-aging needs. Some patients may be more inclined toward non-surgical treatments, which do not require any downtime but have temporary results. Other patients may feel that surgical treatments are better for their needs. When you visit our plastic surgery practice in Sydney, we will help you make the best decision depending on your aesthetic goals. We’ve included some of the most common anti-wrinkle and anti-aging treatments below.


For wrinkles in the cheek area and for sagging of the facial tissues, the best option to consider is the facelift. A traditional facelift will involve incisions around the upper ear area. Through these incisions, excess tissue and fat is removed and your remaining skin is tightened to give you a younger look.

Blepharoplasty (Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery)

The upper and lower eyelids can bother if they are wrinkled or drooping. To address this issue, there is blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery). Upper eyelift surgery can help make you look less tired and more refreshed. For the lower eyelids, the surgery can remedy puffiness, bagginess, or drooping that form with age.

Lower Facelift

Jowls and drooping cheeks can make you look haggard and exhausted. By undergoing a lower facelift, the appearance of heavy jowls can be eliminated. Incisions will be made along the lower portion of the ears so that tissue removal and tightening techniques can be performed as needed.

Neck Lift

Loose and wrinkly skin of the neck can make your entire face look much older. A neck lift can be performed in order to remove loose skin and reduce any flabbiness or puffiness of the neckline. Incisions are made both around the lower part of the ears and underneath the chin to accomplish the desired effect.

Cosmetic Injections

Both wrinkle reduction and dermal filler injections are great options to consider for non-surgical, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. These injections are specially targeted to address facial wrinkles of all kinds. Though the results of these cosmetic injections will only last a limited time, repeat treatments can be easily performed as needed by the patient and as deemed safe by the practitioner.
