If you are unhappy with your facial features, then it is possible to undergo several cosmetic surgeries to make improvements. There are five common facial procedures available from a cosmetic surgeon, and in some cases, it is possible to have multiple procedures during one office or hospital visit. Before a surgery, you will need a physical examination with medical images to determine how to make the appropriate changes to the face to have an augmented but natural appearance.
One: Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is frequently requested by mature individuals to correct the signs of aging. Blepharoplasty is the process of removing excess tissue such as fatty deposits and skin while tightening the underlying tendons and muscles. You will need several weeks to recover from eyelid surgery, and this surgery causes intense bruising and swelling that makes everyday activities such as driving a vehicle difficult. However, you will have a more youthful appearance in only a few weeks.
Rhinoplasties are a popular cosmetic surgery that is requested by teenagers and adults to change the size, projection or shape of the exterior of the nose. You will need sedation anesthesia for this procedure because the surgeon makes one or more cuts to the nose, and most incisions are made in the interior of the nose to avoid scarring. A surgeon can remove and adjust tissue or add implants to improve the nose’s appearance.
Three: Cheek Implants
As you age, your facial cheeks may begin to sag or sink, leading to an unattractive appearance. To improve this condition, a cosmetic surgeon can make small cuts behind the ears or along the cheekbone to insert implants on each side of the face. In addition to implants, a surgeon can use artificial fillers or the fat removed from your thighs or buttocks to fill in sunken cheek areas.
Four: Lip Enhancement or Augmentation
If your facial lips are beginning to droop along the sides or are becoming thinner, then a lip enhancement cosmetic procedure is a good idea. For this surgery, you will require local anesthesia as the surgeon injects fillers or collagen into your lips. As the collagen or filler is injected, the surgeon must smooth the skin of your facial lips to disperse the substance.
Five: Chin Implant
A cosmetic surgeon can correct the shape or projection of a chin with surgery that adjusts tissue such as tendons and muscles or by inserting a chin implant under the skin. Patients require anesthesia for this surgery because a surgeon makes an incision under the chin or behind an ear to insert an artificial implant. You will require several weeks of recovery time, but a chin implant changes your facial appearance drastically.
