Have you ever wondered how celebrities maintain a youthful good look? Many have had facial plastic surgery. Facial plastic surgery includes a variety of procedures that can be performed on the face, jaw, neck, and nose. These procedures can be performed by a Surprise facial plastic surgeon to improve appearance, correct deformities, or repair damage caused by injury or disease.
When you book a consultation with the surgeon, the doctor can assess your individual needs and recommend the best course of treatment. Here are some of the most popular procedures that facial plastic surgeons can perform:
The procedure commonly known as a ‘nose job’ can be performed to change the nose’s shape, size, or angle. It can also be used to correct defects or injuries and improve breathing. After a consultation, the specialist can advise whether you are suitable for the procedure.
To be a suitable candidate for rhinoplasty, you should:
- Be over the age of 18 (or 16 with parental permission)
- Have realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve
- Be in good overall health
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
A facelift can be used to improve the appearance of aging skin. It can also be used to correct deformities or damage caused by injury. The surgeon will make incisions in the hairline and around the ears before tightening the skin and repositioning the deep tissue. Your expectation for the results of a facelift should be based on your age, skin type, and the extent of the surgery.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be used to improve the appearance of drooping eyelids. It can also be used to correct defects or injuries and improve vision. The procedure entails making incisions in the eyelids’ natural creases before removing excess skin and fat. You may be suitable for blepharoplasty if you have drooping eyelids affecting your vision.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, can improve the appearance of protruding ears. It can also be used to correct defects or injuries. There can be incisions behind the ears before reshaping the cartilage. The surgeon may need to remove some skin to achieve the desired results.
Did you know that a ‘double chin’ is often caused by loose skin? A neck lift can improve the appearance of a ‘double chin,’ as well as correct deformities or damage caused by injury. You will need to book a consultation with the surgeon to discuss your needs.
A neck lift can also be combined with a facelift, blepharoplasty, or rhinoplasty for more comprehensive results.
A brow lift, or forehead lift, can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles or ‘sagging’ skin on the forehead. It can also be used to correct deformities or damage caused by injury. The specialist can work by making incisions in the hairline, before repositioning the skin and deep tissue. You may be suitable for a brow lift if you have wrinkles or ‘sagging’ skin on your forehead, affecting your vision.
