How can Facial Surgery improve my appearance?
Facial surgery includes a variety of surgical procedures designed to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the facial appearance, including the ears, chin, and neck. Some facial surgeries correct imperfections or deformities resulting from hereditary conditions, injury, trauma, prior surgery, or illness. Other procedures may be performed simply to restore an individual’s youthful appearance and self-esteem. Most facial surgery treats one specific area of the face, and you may require more than one procedure to achieve a more comprehensive improvement of the entire facial region.
What types of Facial Surgery can I choose from?
Pollack Plastic Surgery provides the following types of facial plastic surgery for patients in the San Diego area of Southern California:
Rhinoplasty sometimes referred to as a “nose job” is one of the most frequently performed facial surgery procedures worldwide. This surgery reduces or increases the size of the nose, or it may be performed to remove an unwanted hump in the bridge, reshape the tip, alter the width or opening of the nostrils, and even alter the angle or shape of the nose. The goal of Rhinoplasty is to achieve an aesthetic balance between the nose and other facial features.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the eye area by removing excess sagging skin around the eyelids. Patients who only have fatty pockets in the region beneath the lower eyelids may opt for a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, a less extensive procedure that treats only the lower eyelids.
The facelift (or rhytidectomy procedure) cannot stop the aging process, but it does eliminate any existing visible signs of aging, as well as correcting imperfections in the facial skin, tighten areas of sagging skin, and creating a taut, sculpted, and more youthful facial contour.
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects the size, shape, angle, or position of the ears to create a more balanced relationship between the ears and the facial features. Otoplasty is one of the few plastic surgery procedures that may be performed on children as well as adults.
- Neck Lift
The neck lift (or platysmaplasty) is a surgical procedure that tightens the muscles and skin in the neck, eliminating the dreaded “turkey neck” effect that makes many individuals appear prematurely aged. A neck lift also eliminates fatty pockets under the chin, eliminates the appearance of jowls along the jaw line, and produces a firmer, more defined facial profile.
- Brow Lift
The brow lift, also sometimes called a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that eliminates sagging skin from the forehead and eyebrows, correcting furrows, lines, and creases that may impart an angry, worried, or tired look to the facial region. This procedure produces a refreshed, alert appearance by smoothing the forehead and repositioning the eyebrows to a higher place to rejuvenate the facial appearance.
- Chin Implant
Chin implants or chin augmentation enhances the size and shape of an underdeveloped chin to improve balance and proportion between the chin and other facial features, producing a more proportioned and attractive facial profile.
What are the benefits of Facial Surgery?
The biggest overall benefit that facial surgery provides is the improvement and rejuvenation of the facial appearance. Facial surgeries are designed to restore balance, proportion, and symmetry to facial features, enhancing the facial profile, while also eliminating sagging skin, wrinkles, creases, folds, and other visible signs of the aging process.
Who should consider Facial Surgery?
Facial surgery is safe for most healthy adults, and in some specific cases, may even be performed on teens and children. People who want to improve their facial appearance by correcting deformities, signs of aging, injury, or other imperfections in the face and neck may benefit from surgical facial procedures.
Does health insurance cover Facial Surgery?
In some cases, facial surgery may be performed to correct facial deformities or defects resulting from injury, illness, prior surgery, or genetic conditions. In these cases, some insurance carriers may consider covering the costs of the facial procedure. When facial surgery is performed for purely cosmetic reasons, insurance companies will not typically cover the costs.
