VivaGlam’s Top 3 Procedures for Women 50+ are ALL Performed by Dr. Sudeep Roy

Recently, VivaGlam compared statistics on the top facial procedures performed on women 50 (or better), and it turns out that RefinedMD’s double board-certified Dr. Sudeep Roy specializes in all three! You don’t have to be 50+ to qualify for these procedures, and regardless of your age, if you’re starting to notice signs of aging you deserve to look and feel your best. Plus, you’ll be surprised at just how quickly one of these procedures heals.

The eyelid lift tops the charts, with both upper and lower blepharoplasty capable of helping patients look years younger. If you’ve been avoiding smiling due to wrinkles and bags, if you’re always asked if you’re tired, or if you’ve noticed that eyelid sagging has gone from annoying to severe, it might be time for an eyelid lift. All of our skin loses elasticity as we get older, but add in gravity and the constant movement of eyelids and it’s no wonder this is the first place to show signs of aging. A blepharoplasty can fix all of that, and after just one week most clients feel confident being seen in public (and on Zoom).

Why Eyelid Lifts Work

A surprisingly small amount of skin (and sometimes fat during lower eyelid lifts) needs to be removed in order to achieve phenomenal results. Those with wrinkles and extra skin on the lower eyelid, fat deposits (bags) in the area, sagging skin that has changed the contours of the upper eyelids, or drooping lower lids that are starting to show the whites of the eyes underneath the iris might all be great candidates for eyelid lifts. Some clients are suited for “just” an upper or lower blepharoplasty, but many benefit from combining both of these procedures into one appointment.

During a blepharoplasty, incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelid for an upper bleph, and either along the lashline or inside the eyelid for a lower bleph. The incisions are small, easily hidden, and the procedure itself typically takes 90 minutes or less. Since the eye area is highly vascular and the incisions are so small, healing naturally happens quickly and easily. Some redness, bruising, and swelling may occur in the 1 – 2 weeks following eyelid surgery, but you will still be able to see the results. This makes eyelid surgery one of the most popular treatments for adults of all ages.

Add on a Facelift

Unsurprisingly, a facelift also made the VivaGlam list. It’s one of the first facial plastic surgeries most people consider because it’s such a household name. However, a lot of people don’t realize that a “full facelift” actually only addresses skin laxity on the lower half of the face and the neck. These are areas that certainly do show signs of aging, but a facelift does not fix laxity around the eyes or on the brow at all. The name “full facelift” can be a little misleading, but the good news is that it’s often possible to combine a facelift with an eyelid lift during the same surgery.

A facelift dramatically minimizes lines and wrinkles, drooping, sagging, and even deep fold lines. If you notice “turkey neck” or jowls, a neck lift might be in order—and a neck lift is inherently built into a facelift! On average, clients who undergo a full facelift look 10+ years younger. Today’s facelifts involve smaller incisions that are hidden in the ear’s natural crevices along with a small pinpoint incision right beneath the chin.

Rhinoplasty at RefinedMD

Finally, the third top facial procedure listed by VivaGlam is rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a “nose job.” This procedure can reduce nose size, achieve facial symmetry, change nose bridge width, adjust position/size of nostrils, remove bulbous tips, and even out bumps and depressions in the profile. The removal of bone and cartilage allows a skilled plastic surgeon to give you the aesthetic and balance you deserve.

No matter which facial plastic surgery—or surgeries—you’re considering, remember that the experience and skill of the provider is the best indicator of results.
