Tips to Avoid Looking Older After Cosmetic Treatments

Jul 1, 2019 | Tips on Cosmetic Treatments

The goal of any plastic surgery is to improve your appearance and in many cases it does just that. Everyone has imperfections that they wish they could change. Plastic surgery has become a common avenue to try and address these concerns. However, some plastic surgery gives patients an irreversible, fake, stiff, puffy, or unnatural look. Whether it be in the media, on TV, or a close friend, we have all seen someone that has taken plastic surgery too far, ironically adding years to their appearance instead of enhancing the way they look. Hopefully, these tips from Dr Julian De Silva and his London based practice can give you a better understanding and help you avoid the common mistakes in plastic surgery today.

Avoid Overuse of Dermal Fillers

The use of dermal fillers in plastic surgery has become a popular and effective tool to help tighten, lift, and fill sagging or droopy skin. When used properly, dermal fillers can transform a person’s appearance, eliminating wrinkles to rejuvenate the skin. Unfortunately, some patients inject too much filler in a given area causing extreme swelling and puffiness, making them look years older than they actually are.

It is important to keep the face looking proportional when considering plastic surgery. If cheeks or lips are injected with too much filler, the face will look unsymmetrical and noticeably fake. When considering how much filler to use, keep in mind that less is more. The goal at our Central London practice is always to minimize the evidence of plastic surgery and maintain a natural, revitalized look. More dermal filler can always be added if a patient is dissatisfied with the changes, but it is very difficult to regain a natural, subtle look of the face after too much filler is injected.

Bigger Is Not Always Better

While a fuller face might be well suited for a sizeable lip augmentation, a narrow or slender face might be better suited for a more subtle lip enhancement. This also holds true when considering other parts of the body as well. When it comes to bodily features, it is important to have a realistic and natural vision of your intended results. For example, extremely large breasts do not always work with a slim and sleek physique. In any case, it is important to keep a realistic and organic proportionality to your appearance to avoid an overdone and older look.

Always Consult a Specialist

When choosing between doctors for any procedure, it is vital to understand the strengths and weaknesses of every practice. Dr De Silva, for example, is a face and neck cosmetic specialist. His Central London team of experts have been specifically trained to advise patients on areas such as the nose, cheeks, lips, forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids, among other facial features. We understand the best techniques to accent the natural aesthetic of the face without creating an irregular looking face.
