If signs of aging have got you down, it’s time to get up! Researchers from Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, which selects the Nobel laureate for Medicine each year, recently found that spending time on your feet protects your DNA from age-related wear and tear and helps you look younger and live longer. Good news for those among us who are active!
Researchers discovered that too much sitting down shortens telomeres, which are caps on the tips of chromosomes that protect them from fraying. Past research has linked shortened telomeres to premature aging. If you spent too many years sitting behind your desk or watching television already, we encourage you to learn more about the variety of anti-aging solutions at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Atagi Skin Aesthetics in Denver.
“Surgical rejuvenation is a great option for those who are bothered by moderate to severe sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles,” says board-certified Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. Tanya Atagi. Among your options are facelift, browlift and eyelid lift.
A facelift in Denver can restore youthful facial contours by tightening the deep tissue of the face, then re-draping and smoothing the overlying skin. While there is some downtime following this procedure, the vast majority of our Denver patients feel this is a life-changing, confidence-boosting procedure.
Lines on the forehead are best softened or erased with a browlift in Denver. Even the slightest lifting of the brow can help you appear more youthful and rested, eliminating the heaviness that can overwhelm the upper portion of the face and make you look tired, stressed and aged.
The delicate skin framing and protecting the eyes is often the first to show signs of aging. An upper eyelid lift (pictured) and/or lower eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) utilizes small incisions that are naturally hidden in the folds of the eye. Say goodbye to under-eye bags and puffiness for good!
