Types of Face Procedures

Facelift – A facelift is a powerful option for surgical facial rejuvenation. This procedure focuses on addressing the effects of aging throughout the midface and lower face. This includes issues like sagging skin, wrinkles, facial folds, and loss of definition along the jawline. During the surgery, loose skin is trimmed away, and the underlying tissue and muscles may be tightened. The skin will then be repositioned, so that the face has a smooth and natural-looking appearance.

Mini Facelift – The mini facelift is a less intensive alternative to a full facelift that lifts and tightens tissue in the lower face only. Because this procedure requires smaller incisions and involves fewer modifications, recovery from a mini facelift is quicker than with a full facelift.

Blepharoplasty – Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is intended to rejuvenate the eye area. This procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids (upper blepharoplasty) and/or the lower eyelids (lower blepharoplasty), depending on the patient’s needs. The procedure can involve removing excess skin, tightening muscles, and removing or repositioning fat to open and refresh the eye area.

Otoplasty – Otoplasty, or ear surgery, can enhance the patient’s facial appearance by resolving concerns about the size, shape, symmetry, and projection of the ears. Both children and adults can be candidates for this procedure.

Recovery and Aftercare

The length of the recovery period following facial plastic surgery will depend on the type of procedure performed along with other factors. Patients should expect to take some time off from work to allow their body to heal. Some degree of post-op discomfort, swelling, and bruising is to be expected and will subside over the coming weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your face due to aging or other factors, you may be a good candidate for facial plastic surgery. You should be in good overall health and have realistic goals and expectations. The best way to determine if facial surgery can provide you with the results you want is to schedule a consultation.
