Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Verne Weisberg Discusses the Anti-Aging Effects of Mini Procedure

Portland, ME, October 9, 2014: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new article on his website entitled, “Make a Major Impression With A Mini Procedure.”  With cosmetic procedures that take an hour or so to perform and under two weeks to heal, a new trend is emerging that favors mini cosmetic procedures starting with the first signs of aging. This, in tandem with fine creams and lotions is becoming a very popular anti-aging preventive measure.

According to Dr. Weisberg, “Many people elect a series of mini procedures over a course of time as a preventative form of defying age instead of waiting for the more definitive signs of aging that demand a major rejuvenation.” It really does beg the question, why would anyone wait for a complete facelift when you can have a series of mini-procedures over the course of time?  Starting with eyelift procedures because this is where the first signs of aging generally appear.

Dr. Weisberg says, “Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular mini cosmetic procedures that can make a dramatic difference in your appearance. A straightforward eyelid lift can generally be done in under an hour as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia and requires a relatively short time frame for healing.” He continues, adding, “One of the welcome aspects of an eyelid procedure is that most healing generally takes about two weeks. In fact, some people return to work the following day wearing sunglasses.”

Weisberg gives a brief overview of various different eyelift procedures, and recommends selecting a board certified surgeon with whom to work.
