Introduction to Facial Surgery
Facial surgery is amongst the most effective things you can do in order to significantly improve your appearance. Facial surgery can correct the outward signs of aging and refresh your overall look.
Your face is one of your distinctive features. We all want our faces to look as beautiful and attractive as possible and to accurately reflect how we feel about ourselves.
There are many different plastic surgery procedures that can be performed to improve the appearance of your face. A facelift corrects problems caused by aging of the cheeks, jaw-line, and neck. A browlift smooths the forehead and relaxes the brow to produce a more rested and youthful appearance; and a blepharoplasty procedure lifts the eyes by removing extra skin and fatty bags from the eyelids.
The objective of facial rejuvenation is not that it should change your appearance, rather that it should make you appear as rested and naturally youthful as possible. To achieve this goal, we develop a customized plan for facial rejuvenation with each of our patients. This takes into account the patient’s age, lifestyle, objectives, and also anatomical considerations.
Facial surgery was traditionally considered a dramatic step, only suitable for only those with more advanced signs of aging. Many patients regularly received a “total facelift” look whether or not they needed it, or indeed wanted it. Today, however, the situation has changed and many people are undergoing smaller procedures earlier in order to age more gracefully. Many facial surgery techniques can now be performed in a much more subtle way so as to avoid an extreme overdone and artificial look.
Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group is a resolute proponent of the “less is more” approach, believing in a natural aesthetic in facial surgery.
There are certain other facial plastic surgery procedures the objective of which is to alter our natural features so as to produce a more aesthetic look. These procedures include rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), facial implants placed in either the chin or cheeks, and otoplasty (ear reshaping). Because these procedures actually change what nature intended, it is important to give them great consideration before proceeding. During your consultation, your surgeon will carefully discuss the options with you in order to achieve your aesthetic objectives.
