The Best Facial Rejuvenation Procedures to Consider After 50

Those who have leaped over the milestone of fifty tend to feel more confident with themselves than they may have in their youth. However, when the signs of aging begin to show up around the face, they are a potential threat to this confidence. People often choose cosmetic surgeries to be more competitive in the workplace, feel more relaxed and comfortable in social settings, attract a new partner, or just feel better for themselves. When you look as young as you feel, you exude confidence and radiance that makes you truly beautiful at any age.


At Zochowski Plastic Surgery in Columbus, OH, Dr. Christopher Zochowski wants to help his patients age gracefully and feel their absolute best. Here are a few facial rejuvenation procedures he offers to his guests over 50.

Surgical Procedures


Although there’s an abundance of cosmetic procedures to help with facial aging, none offer the excellent benefits of a facelift. Dr. Zochowski implements a variety of approaches to make this procedure customizable for each patient and their unique goals. However, the one most recommended to patients over fifty would be the full incision technique. Patients in their 50’s or older may experience significant folds of excess skin in the face and neck. For this reason, the best option for facial rejuvenation would be a traditional facelift to obtain maximum benefits and natural-appearing results.


Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that helps to improve visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Dr. Zochowski uses a variety of techniques to remove excess fat from under the chin and the lateral areas of the neck. A neck lift can also help to treat loose neck skin, muscle banding in the neck, and the loss of youthful jawline contours.

Non-Surgical Procedures

Going under the knife isn’t for everyone. If you’re feeling particularly uneasy about getting any of the procedures mentioned above, then Dr. Zochowski does offer other non-surgical alternatives:


Fillers & Injectables

Well-known brand name fillers and injectables include Botox®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Dysport. Dr. Zochowski can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your needs and medical history. Botox® and Dysport are great solutions to expression wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, or stubborn smile lines. Dermal fillers help add volume back where it has been lost due to a decrease in fat tissue.

Lip Injections

Age can also have an effect on our lips. Where they were once smooth, full, and perfectly lined, they are now small with lines fine lines that make it difficult to wear any kind of makeup. An excellent solution to facial aging and thinning lips, lip fillers have grown increasingly popular amongst people in their 50’s. Lip fillers are done with dermal fillers like Restylane® or Juvéderm®. Both fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein found inside of your body that is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and plump. And, due to it being a naturally occurring substance, you can expect your results to look and feel natural with less chance of any kind of reaction.
