5 Procedures to Give You a New Look for the New Year

Getting older is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you have to look your age. If you desire a more youthful, refreshed look, there is no better time than the New Year to give yourself the appearance you’ve always desired.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Smith is here to help you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful in your own skin. Below are five safe and effective options to look younger and more refreshed.


When you think of cosmetic surgery, the time-tested facelift procedure may come to mind. While some services address a single aesthetic issue, a facelift can improve an impressive array of concerns including:

  • Sagging skin
  • Deep facial folds
  • Fat loss
  • Fat that has moved down the face
  • Jowls

A facelift is a comprehensive way to turn back the hands of time and achieve a long-lasting youthful boost. This procedure corrects the visible signs of aging in a way that only surgical intervention can.

Neck Lift

If you’re concerned about the appearance of your jawline and neck, then a neck lift could be a great choice. In many cases, the lower face shows signs of aging before the upper face. You may have already noticed wrinkles, a “double chin,” jowl lines, or the loose hanging skin commonly referred to as a “turkey neck.”

A neck lift is often a good solution for patients who feel that their neck area looks much older than their face. It can also be performed in conjunction with a facelift, providing a complete transformation.


You can also improve signs of aging with hyaluronic-acid based fillers. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally throughout the body, including in the skin. Its function is to attract water and increase hydration.

When Dr. Smith administers a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvéderm, it immediately improves aesthetic issues by adding volume. It reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles while improving the structure of your face.

Lip Enhancement

Lips become thin and deflate with age due to a natural decline in collagen. Non-surgical lip enhancement is an excellent way to restore lost fullness to your lips. When your lips have more volume, your entire face can look younger.

Dr. Smith will create a customized treatment plan for you. Typically, he relies on Juvéderm to give his patients a plump pout. You don’t need to increase the size of your lips dramatically; a subtle increase will likely offer beautiful, natural-looking results.

Why Winter is an Ideal Time for Cosmetic Enhancement

Procedures such as facelifts and neck lifts require downtime after your surgery as your incisions heal, your bruises go away, and your swelling dissipates.

During the winter, it's much easier to stay indoors, lay in bed, and rest until you're able to resume normal activities. By the time spring and summer roll around, you'll be recovered and ready to show off your new look.
