Visit a Facial Surgeon for These Procedures
A facial surgeon is an expert in the field of facial plastic surgery. It is essential to find a surgeon with this specialty if you are considering any face-related surgery to ensure you receive the best results. A surgeon who specializes in face procedures can improve the appearance and function of a person’s face, resulting in a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance as well as enhancing the person’s ability to chew, breath and see.
Facial Surgeons Can Assist In Many Ways
If you are interested in any of the following procedures, it is especially important to speak with a facial surgeon in our office:
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is performed to remove excess skin and saggy areas from the neck and lower face. The procedure will effectively tighten the face as a whole, creating a younger look.
Sometimes combined with a facelift, a forehead lift is also known as a brow lift. This procedure removes forehead wrinkles and tightens the skin of the upper face. It rids the face from having any droopiness or frown lines associated with aging.
Surgery of the eyelids and the fat and skin around them is called a blepharoplasty. In most cases, patients seek out this procedure to achieve a less tired appearance. They may also appear younger after the process due to the removal of wrinkles and bags under and around the eyes.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the reconstruction of the nose. In most cases, the bone and cartilage of the nose will be altered during this procedure and reshaped to achieve the preferred appearance.
An otoplasty is a surgery for a person's ears. Many children with ears that stick out further than they should undergo this procedure. The operation pulls in ears that protrude and reshapes the cartilage creating a natural appearance.
Skin resurfacing is sometimes considered a surgical procedure if a laser or chemical is used to perform the resurfacing. This type of procedure removes the outer layer of a person’s facial skin to rid the face of wrinkles and blemishes.
Face implants may improve the structure of the chin, cheeks or lips. Many people seek this procedure out as they age to keep the plump appearance of youth.
Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery is sometimes needed to correct dental irregularities. Most of these irregularities are a result of skeletal malformations that may impair the function of the mouth and jaw.
Surgery can fix multiple problems
Some patients undergo a facial reconstruction if they are displeased with more than one aspect of their face or if they have suffered a facial injury or disease. A facial reconstruction may reduce the appearance of imperfections, repair deformities and improve the functional capacity of one or more features of the face. Some people are born with an imperfection like a cleft lip that must be surgically repaired.
