Every year, among the most common resolutions is the one concerning weight loss. Although most people have dropped their resolutions by this time, for some, the journey continues. For those serious about losing a substantial amount of weight, rounding the home stretch can mean a totally changed appearance. For some, this is welcome news. For others, not so much.

When the Elasticity is Gone

Younger people who go through substantial weight loss may find their facial features greatly enhanced. Cheekbones are more prominent, eyes look bigger and brighter and jawlines are more enhanced. Younger skin still has plenty of collagen and elastin to keep facial skin smooth and taught. Older skin is not as resilient.

Losing a lot of weight when you are older is no doubt a healthy move, especially if you are obese. At the same time, older skin does not have the same level of collagen and elastin. As you lose weight, the supporting volume underneath your skin whittles away. Consequently, you may notice more wrinkles and lines.

While you are most likely going to feel more energetic and youthful, your face may tell a different story. Some older people look gaunt and almost unwell as their face loses supporting structure. Many individuals are surprised and not necessarily happy with how their face responds to the weight loss. Fortunately, you do have options to restore that youthful look.

Weighing Your Options

Depending on the changes your weight loss has created, you will have surgical and non-surgical avenues available to tighten loose skin and diminish lines and wrinkles. A thorough examination and evaluation will determine which options are best suited to your unique situation.

Non-surgical options include dermal fillers and/or the use of Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® to address areas of concern. Dermal fillers are used to add volume to certain areas and minimize lines and wrinkles. Botox and Dysport injections soften wrinkles in specific areas, such as the inter-brow or glabella area.

Your weight loss is something to celebrate. Let it show in your face when you recapture a more youthful look. Dr. Ransom can show you how. Make an appointment today for your consultation.

I had several nasal/sinus issues including a severely deviated septum and a dorsal hump, which I wasn't crazy about. Dr Ransom did both the medical and aesthetic parts of my surgery and he did a wonderful job! While I did have some swelling, I didn't experience much bruising at all. I loved that he left the natural look of my nose just making small corrections. My breathing has GREATLY improved. His office staff was super helpful in scheduling and making sure payment and everything was very clear. I am very, very, very pleased with my results!!

I had a terrible surf accident in Bali and needed to get 50 stitches to repair what the reef did to my face. I had emergency cosmetic surgery in Bali the day of the accident. Immediately when i got back to the states i was introduced to Dr Ransom through some mutual friends. I was searching for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco to help in my recovery. He and his team have been amazing! he helped establish a plan for my post-op wound care/treatment and administered some initial laser treatments. Dr Ransom and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very patient / helpful. I am very grateful for their help and support. I am finally looking normal again!

I had three issues with my nose - which inhibited my breathing: 1- broken nose, 2 - narrow nostrils that collapsed when I inhaled through my nose, 3 - deviated septum. When I was living in New York, I went to see a doctor about my breathing issues, and he said my skin was too thin and there was likely nothing he could do to rectify the problem. Dr. Ransom was recommended by an ENT I saw through One Medical. As soon as he saw him, he said he could easily fix my nose, and remove the bump that had formed from the trauma. His confidence and strong sense of self immediately put me at ease, and I had little doubt that he could accomplish exactly what he promised. He showed me a modified picture of my nose , and really liked what he proposed. The end result very closely matched what he promised. Not only can I now breath much more easily through my nose, it looks much better. He managed to make it look like an improved version of itself, however I still look like me, and unless I tell anyone I had it done, it's not overly noticeable, which I prefer. I'm pretty vain and very critical, and I can say that Dr. Ransom is great, and comes highly recommended.

Doctor Evan Ransom took my surgery on relatively short order and did a wonderful job. He is very talented and has a nice friendly professional support staff. I can not thank him enough, he was calm, caring, professional and interested in the follow results of his work . He seemed to bring a certain artistry to the profession.

Dr Ransom is very kind, honest, and conscience doctor. I was referred by my best friend, she is also Doctor Ransom patient. She has so much good things said about Doctor Ransom. So I had a face lift done by Doctor Ransom on July 2015. He did a wonderful job on my face and I have a lot of compliments on my face. So if anyone want to get their face done. I would highly recommended Doctor Ransom to you. I give Doctor Ransom a five stars.

I have currently been getting botox regularly with Dr. Ransom and he does a fantastic job. My previous doctor's office moved to another location where it was no longer convenient. I didn't realize what I was missing until I went to Dr. Ransom. I felt really comfortable, but most important he did a terrific job blowing my previous doctor out of the park. (Sometimes it's good switch it up a bit to make sure you are getting the best treatment.) On top of that, Dee the office manager is an incredible asset to the office. She personalizes your visit and relationship with the office to an extent I have never experienced before. I even get follow up calls to see how I am doing after a treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Ransom for his great work, and his team's impeccable customer service.

Dr. Ransom and Dee are the BEST! Whether it's aesthetic or reconstructive, I'd trust him over and over again with my face.
