A cosmetic surgeon has suggested that patients who have undergone surgery on their face could follow some simple steps in order to improve their results.
Dr Daryl Hoffman, who performs facial enhancement procedures, recommended medspa treatments to his patients.
"Procedures like face lifts and eyelid surgery already create results that last many years, but every patient wants to make sure those benefits last as long as possible," said the doctor.
He added: "I'm finding that medical spa treatments give me some of the best ways to do that. It's exciting that my patients are seeing benefits with the help of something as simple as an injectable treatment, for instance."
The cosmetic surgery expert proposed injectable dermal fillers and laser skin rejuvenation as two of the best ways of extending the lift of surgical procedures.
According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, more than 4,000 women had face or neck lift procedures in 2009.
What's better? Private or NHS healthcare?
