When ageing becomes advanced, some will resort to surgical treatments which will provide a more permanent and effective result.

“Surgical procedures are more suited to those with heavily drapy skin, and more redundant folding of the skin,” says Dr Goodman.

He says that the most common facial surgical procedures include eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty which improves saggy eyelids and bags.

Face and brow lifts, which minimise the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose are also popular due to their permanent results.

However they come at a price tag much higher than non-surgical procedures.

When it comes to choosing cosmetic surgery, choosing a professional is important.

The difference between a cosmetic and plastic surgeon is that a plastic surgeon has a higher level of qualifications and skill-set. It is best to work with a plastic surgeon when it comes to invasive surgical procedures.
