in Plastic-surgery

Your face shows signs of aging more prominently than any other area of your body. Unfortunately, you can't hide behind a bulky sweater if you are self-conscious about facial lines and wrinkles. To restore the youth of your appearance and improve the contours of your facial features, numerous facial plastic surgery options are available.

Before having facial plastic surgery, it is worth your while to schedule an initial consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this time, you can have all of your questions about facial plastic surgery answered, as well as any individual concerns to help you determine which procedure is right for your needs.

Popular Facial Plastic Surgery Options

Facial plastic surgery has long been the solution for correction of physical malformations resulting from aging, disease, birth defects and injury. Today, there are a growing number of men and women having facial plastic surgery to combat the signs of aging and improve their appearance. Whether you wish to refine the shape of your nose or remove sagging skin from under your chin, there is a facial plastic surgical option for your needs. Some of the most popular surgical options for your face include:

  • •Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) - the removal of excess skin and fat around the eyes to improve a "tired" appearance and droopy eyelids
  • •Forehead lift, or brow lift - the removal of loose skin and excess fat in the brow line and rearranging of the muscles in your forehead to minimize forehead creases, banish frown lines and reposition expression lines
  • •Rhytidectomy (facelift) - tightens facial skin and muscles and removes excess fat to smooth the contours and wrinkles as a result of aging
  • •Neck lift - the removal of excess fat and skin as well as the tightening of neck muscles to improve loose-hanging skin
  • •Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) - a nose-reshaping surgery to correct structural deformities or to make subtle aesthetic changes for cosmetic purposes
  • •Otoplasty (ear surgery) - a procedure performed to correct malformed ears or for cosmetic purposes
  • •Laser skin resurfacing - the use of either a carbon dioxide or erbium laser to evaporate damaged skin and leave you with a youthful glow

Benefits of Facial Plastic Surgery

While many facial plastic surgery procedures can be used to address cosmetic imperfections, these procedures can also be used to correct structural problems that pose a threat to your health. Those surgeries include:

  • •Rhinoplasty to change the structure and shape of your nose and nostrils. This can correct airflow problems to help you breathe better
  • •Otoplasty to correct cupped ears, shelled ears or ears not visible due to a birth defect
  • •Blepharoplasty to remove excess skin around your eyes can restore your peripheral vision
