When it comes to facial cosmetic surgery, there are as many options as there are problems to be corrected and facial features to be enhanced. Here is a list of some of the most common procedures and what can be corrected.
As we age, the eyelids can sag, a condition which may even interfere with sight. A blepharoplasty corrects sagging and tightens the skin, resulting in a more uplifted, youthful look and better vision. It is a relatively simple outpatient procedure.
Forehead and Face Lifts
A facelift may be a targeted procedure- as with a forehead lift or be an overall tightening and repositioning of the skin, a procedure which corrects sagging and reduces the look of lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful visage.
Mentoplasty helps correct a double chin. It may also be used to correct other issues with the facial profile. It may be considered in conjunction with a rhinoplasty, in order to achieve balance of the facial proportions and features.
Commonly known as a “nose job,” a rhinoplasty may be performed to correct a number of issues, including the size of the nose in proportion to the face and to adjust the shape of the nose to better suit the face.
Through either laser or chemical treatments, skin resurfacing can reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and provide a rejuvenated glow. Many treatments stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes to provide additional collagen and refresh cell growth.
Botox can help reduce wrinkles and lines as well as plump specifically targeted areas. The injections are most often used to reduce the look of crows feet and other fine lines around the lips, nose, and eyes.
Facial Reconstruction and Scar Reduction
In some cases, facial reconstruction and scar revision may be necessary following an accident or previous surgery. Depending on your goals and specific situation, your doctor may be able to reduce or eliminate the look of scars and other injuries.
