procedures to decrease signs of aging

A few decades ago, the phrase “aging gracefully” was used to describe women who chose to grow older without going under the knife. Here at our Minneapolis plastic surgery practice, we believe that a more modern take on aging gracefully means taking steps to appear and feel young. There’s no shame in setting up an appointment with a plastic surgeon to figure out how to improve your aging appearance.

Here are the 3 most common body parts which could reveal your age and how we can help you!


Your face will likely be one of those body parts that will give your real age away. A face lift cannot stop the aging process. What a facelift does best, is to simply set back the clock.

A facelift can improve the deep cheek folds, jowls and loose, sagging skin around the neck that comes with age. It can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat and tightening the skin and muscles of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with a brow lift or eyelid surgery. Here at our practice, we strive for the most natural look when it comes to a facelift.

Botox and dermal fillers are also excellent alternatives if you wish to improve the appearance of your face through non-invasive ways.


Apart from lotions and moisturizers, hand rejuvenation through fillers will surely keep those hands soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free. It is also important to consistently apply hand care products as part of your skin care routine.


Sagging breasts, particularly after childbirth and breastfeeding, are also likely to give away your age. So breast enhancement procedures like a breast lift or augmentation with implants will not only make your bust firmer and youthful-looking but also significantly improve your body’s overall silhouette.
