Do the Lines on Your Face Add Too Many Years?

Facial Fillers New York NY

When you look into the mirror, does your face still reflect who you are? We can all remember the days when our fresh young faces just lit up the room with their glowing complexions. But once we start moving past a certain age, that light can turn into lines that pull the mouth into a frown and leave us looking a bit old and cranky. It’s not generally a popular look. What brings those deep lines around your mouth? Can they be eliminated?

Some Lines May Be Inevitable

As we age, we lose the fat beneath our skin and unfortunately, that means more than just weight loss. We also lose the elasticity in our skin, so the skin is not as resilient. The lines and wrinkles start to show, adding years to the face. Those deep lines that form at the corners of your mouth and run down into the chin area are known as “marionette lines.” And yes, they could be inevitable. But the answer is closer than you think.

Are you ready to rewind the clock, so your resting face looks young and peaceful like you remember? The good news is, marionette lines can be significantly reduced and possibly eliminated with the hand of a skilled, qualified facial plastic surgeon.

How Can Marionette Lines Be Removed?

There are a few different options that can relieve those lines and take away those false years. Dermal fillers can be an excellent option when the lines first appear. Fillers are a short-term fix, but it is a simple procedure with no surgery.

Another non-surgical option for filling the marionette lines are injectable solutions. These injections offer another non-invasive, temporary solution to these lines with no downtime. You have a fast, easy fix and feel younger in minutes.

If you’ve decided it’s time for a little more permanent fix, then a mini facelift, right around the mouth and nose, could be the right answer for you. Dr. Khosh is a highly credentialed plastic surgeon who specializes in faces. He provides each patient with the sensitive, individual care you need with a plan of action that’s perfect for you.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
