In your 20s, skin is generally free of the signs of aging. Start a medically supervised treatment plan now to protect your skin from the harmful effects of sun and environment.
Proper cleansing, moisturizing, and use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily will help ward off early wrinkles and enlarged pores. Mild peels and topical treatments may help control acne. Botox® injections can prevent lines and filler agents such as Restylane®, Radiesse®,and Juvéderm™ can be used to fill out smile lines and augment lips.
For unfavorable size and shape of body features, surgery may be in order. Breast augmentation, breast reduction and other aesthetic procedures can often be performed. Liposculpture and body contouring may also be an option.
Decreased firmness and skin elasticity are a natural part of aging. Introducing anti-oxidants into your skincare routine can help prevent sun damage that leads to lines and age spots. Also, alpha hydroxy acids in conjunction with retinoids and topical antioxidants can restore a youthful appearance to the skin.
Non-invasive laser procedures may improve fine lines, brown spots, and broken blood vessels. Botox® injections can diminish laugh lines and create a smoother forehead. Fillers like Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm™ can be used to fill smile lines and augment lips.
Many women find that the rigors of motherhood have an undesired effect on their appearance and confidence. For this group, tummy tucks, breast lifts, and breast augmentation are popular procedures.
For those in their 40s, damage caused by sun exposure become apparent. More aggressive skincare can help combat the visible signs of aging. A combination of topical solutions like tretinoin (Retin-A), AHAs, and BHAs, along with microdermabrasion brings the best results.
There are many procedures available to smooth and tighten skin. Photofacials, chemical peels, and topical treatments are effective in decreasing the signs of aging as well as minimizing pore size. Fillers like Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm™ can help restore volume in the mid-face and fill smile lines. For upper face and forehead lines, Botox® injections may be in order.
For those who choose the surgical route, face, brow, eye and neck lifts are very popular procedures.
By age fifty, regular skin examinations by a certified aesthetician or plastic surgeon are essential.
Maintaining natural moisture is more difficult. Peels and light therapy in combination with ultra-hydrating home care can help maintain the balance. Laser resurfacing combined with fillers to restore volume can provide an impressive rejuvenation.
In all likelihood, more extensive facial rejuvenation and resurfacing procedures will be necessary at this stage. Depending on your appearance goals, comprehensive surgery can reverse signs of aging in the face, brow, mid-face, and neck areas. A facelift or brow lift in conjunction with laser resurfacing can yield dramatic results. The payoff for more invasive surgery is a natural, more supple look that is virtually undetectable.

“A friend of mine had a breast augmentation from Dr. Dickie and she said that it was the best thing that she has ever done…”
“Dear Dr. Dickie & Team: I can’t thank you and your wonderful staff enough. Your extreme care and compassion with my surgery really made my experience a great one. Thank you for making me feel beautiful again.”
“It has been just over a year now but I wanted to tell them how EXTREMELY HAPPY I am with my new "additions"! I have had no pain, no problems, and the scars have faded quite nicely! My Tummy Tuck looks amazing. I would do this 10 times over again because the results make it all worth it!! I have had countless people here in London compliment me on your work and have asked me for your office's information which I have gladly passed on. So, thank you for your compassion, your caring, and for your very talented skills! I couldn't be happier with my results!”
“Thank you for making me look ten years younger! My facelift is so natural, and I no longer feel self-conscious about my lower face and chicken neck. Throughout my experience, I loved the way your patient care coordinators took care of me. You and your staff are so wonderful and loving, yet so professional too!”
“I had always been extremely conscious about my chest size. I had a number of consultations but never felt quite comfortable until I visited Dr. Dickie’s clinic. He along with his staff went above and beyond to ensure that all my questions were answered. My breasts look fantastic, and after being so pleased with my results, I am now looking into doing my tummy tuck with Dr. Dickie.”
“...I had a tummy tuck with Dr. Dickie two years ago, and I am to this day still very pleased with my results. My scar visibility is nil and my stomach is the flattest that it’s ever been for as long as I can remember.”
“I’ve always been a fairly solid girl, however my thighs always seemed extremely huge to me. I consulted with Dr. Dickie for lipo. He answered all my questions thoroughly and ensured that I was well aware of what to expect following my surgery. It’s been two years. I’ve since gotten married and had one child and my thighs still look great.”
“I am so glad that I had the opportunity to have my injections done by a plastic surgeon! Who better to sculpt my face than someone who knows the face inside and out! I was really happy also that you did my injections, and not a nurse! Wow! I feel lucky!”
“I have had facial hair since I was 12 years old. As I got older, the task of having to shave every day became more and more tedious. Dr. Dickie suggested I try the EpiLight Laser treatment. I completed my 5 sessions 15 months ago. This has truly changed my life.”
“I love my skin! Thank you, thank you! For the first time ever, I can honestly say I don’t need makeup. I love the Obagi program. It’s so easy to use and the results look like I’ve had a facelift.”
“Of all the physicians I consulted with, I felt most comfortable with Dr. Dickie. I have never one day since my surgery in 2005 regretted my decision. My self-esteem is sky high, and I feel better about myself than I have in years.”
