Men and women sometimes start their search for a plastic surgeon in Downer’s Grove, IL, after seeing a photo of themselves posted on Facebook or some other social media site and wondering just who that tired person with all the wrinkles was staring back at them! They start to wonder whether people meeting them for the first time might be thinking that as well.
First impressions matter, and in the online world they are occurring without you even knowing it. If you’re making a career change, are trying to land a new client, or are just active on social media, the image you project often shapes people’s opinions about you. Plastic surgery is a way to make subtle changes that will enhance others’ first impression of you.
Here are 3 procedures that result in specific improvements to your appearance that, with the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon, can help create a more youthful look.
A facelift improves the appearance of the lower portions of the face. It can help if you’re bothered by a double chin or jowls, want a more defined jawline, or are looking to soften “smile lines” around your mouth. It’s great for improving aging concerns along the lower face on a long-term basis, especially when short-term solutions like injectables are no longer doing the trick.

Many people who think they look angry or tired opt for brow lifts, which address aging concerns on the upper face. A furrowed brow and deep forehead creases can make someone appear worried or angry even when they’re not. Brow lifts are often combined with facelifts to create an overall refreshed, youthful appearance.
Slight changes to the upper or lower eyelids, or both, can make a significant change in your appearance. Think about how you would look without crow’s feet around your eyes, or with the bags under your eyes erased. Droopy eyelids create a tired look. Eyelid surgery, which is often combined with a brow lift, can restore an alert, rested look.
The best way to determine which procedure or combination of procedures may help you look and feel your best is to come in for a personal consultation. During this appointment, I’ll be able to assess your concerns in person and create a customized treatment plan specific to your aesthetic goals.
