How Can Plastic Surgery Help Your Face?
Your face is one of your most important physical attributes. It’s what you present to the world. And, if you are unhappy about the way your face looks, either in part or in whole, you can feel self-conscious and embarrassed. However, plastic surgery can help correct some of these aesthetic issues, so you feel more confident and comfortable with the way you look.
Facelift surgery tightens the skin and underlying tissues in the lower two-thirds of the face (from the cheeks to the neck).
A facelift helps correct wrinkles and fine lines on the face that develop with age. Additionally, excess skin can be removed with a facelift.
Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery tightens the skin around the eyes and forehead.
A brow lift results in smoother and healthier-looking skin in the upper third of the face.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) addresses aging in the upper and lower eyelids.
Whether it be correcting tired-looking eyes or sagging eyelids, blepharoplasty can help revitalize the appearance of your eyes.
Rhinoplasty (corrective nose surgery) corrects irregularities with the nose, including crookedness, bumps, size, and shape. This surgery can also adjust the nostrils.
Because the nose is the central part of your face, you will achieve a more balanced aesthetic after rhinoplasty.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Otoplasty (ear surgery) (ear pinning) improves the ears’ size, shape, and projection.
Whether you are frustrated about the large size of your ears or are unhappy with how far they stick out from the side of your face, otoplasty can bring your ears into a more natural look with the rest of your face.
Non-surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Non-surgical procedures, such as neuromodulator injectables and dermal fillers (like BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, KYBELLA®) or laser skin resurfacing, can give your face a refreshed and youthful look without you needing to worry about surgical procedures, recovery time, or stitches.
Many of the facial plastic surgery procedures available at Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery will help you get rid of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. The skin and underlying tissues will be addressed to give you smoother-looking and feeling skin.
After your facial plastic surgery procedure, your skin will be healthier and more contoured, allowing you to look as young as you feel.
Many men and women feel embarrassed about how their faces look, and they try to cover up with sunglasses or hats pulled down low, but after your facial plastic surgery, you will feel proud to show off your new, refreshed look.
Many people worry that plastic surgery will cause them to look unnatural, but at Pasadena Cosmetic Surgery, your plastic surgeon can be trusted to give you dynamic and natural-looking results.
What Are Your Concerns?
Can facial plastic surgery procedures be combined?
Yes. Patients choose to combine their plastic surgery procedures for several reasons, including:
- More complete and dynamic results
- Lower overall cost
- Lower overall recovery time
What are some facial plastic surgery risks?
Though rare, there is the chance of risks with any plastic surgery procedure, such as:
- Loss of skin sensitivity
How long will my surgery take to complete?
The length of your surgery depends on the type of surgery you have performed. While otoplasty and blepharoplasty surgeries usually take about two hours to complete, a facelift can take up to four hours.
Are my facial plastic surgery results permanent?
If you choose to have a surgical procedure, your results will be long lasting; however, no surgery can keep away the natural effects of aging. With a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a consistent skin care routine, you can make sure that your results last even longer.
Non-surgical treatments, such as injectables, can last from a few months to a few years.
What is better for my face, a surgical procedure or a non-surgical procedure?
Really, the choice to have a surgical or non-surgical procedure depends on your facial issues and your goals for your face. At your consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial condition to decide which procedure(s) is right for you.
