I look older than I am – so now I feel older than I am!

Over time, lifestyle and gravity will leave their mark on your face: your cheeks lose volume, jowls develop around the jawline, wrinkles disrupt previously smooth skin. The overall effect can be to make you look tired and fed up. Indeed, a frequently heard complaint in Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic is ‘I still feel young and active, yet I look grumpy and world weary’. Their concern is that just as the act of smiling makes you feel happier, a constant downtrodden demeanour will lead to feeling that way, too.

What are my options for facial rejuvenation?

There are many revitalising cosmetic treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. One of the most effective procedures, popular among both men and women, is a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) which reduces the hooded effect of drooping eyelids. Other rejuvenating surgeries include a facelift and a neck lift. For those who want to take a less invasive approach, Botox, chemical peels and dermal fillers all can – in experienced and skilful hands – produce impressive, natural-looking results. Mr Ghosh offers the full range of anti-ageing treatments at his Milton Keynes clinic, including the innovative silhouette thread facelift.

What are the benefits of a silhouette thread facelift?

A silhouette thread facelift is a non-surgical procedure that can effectively address sagging jowls and loss of volume. It involves drawing dissolvable threads of polylactic acid through the skin after administering injections of local anaesthetic, and anchoring the sutures beneath the skin. The threads last about 18 months but the aesthetic improvements have been seen to continue longer as the polylactic acid encourages the body to produce collagen which is essential to rejuvenating the fullness of the skin. Requiring less downtime than a conventional facelift, and producing mobile, natural looking results, the silhouette thread facelift is fast gaining popularity.
