Types of Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic facial surgery and other treatments are utilized to enhance the visual appearance of the facial features and the structure of the face. A few examples of popular facial cosmetic procedures include face lifts, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, eyebrow correction, ear reconstruction, just to name a few. The main purpose of facial plastic surgery is to positively alter the face by restoring it to its previous state after age has negatively altered the face, to correct abnormalities on the face or to simply fix an issue regarding a client’s facial features.
Face Lift (Rhytidectomy):
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, is a common procedure used most often to remove jowls along the jaw line, which occur from fat or sagging skin. Of course, there are other types of face lift procedures utilized as well, which were created to meet the needs of various patients with assorted needs and wants. Many times, a face lift is combined with other facial procedures, such as an eyelid surgery or a brow lift, to garner an even better result. It is often thought that a face lift will remove every single wrinkle from the face, but in fact it does not. A face lift will only remove the sagging areas. For most patients, the effects of a facelift will remain for 10 years. Read more about the face lift/rhytidectomy procedure:
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty):
The eyes are very important when it comes to the overall beauty of the face, making an eyelid surgery a very popular cosmetic procedure. The technical term for eyelid surgery is blepharoplasty. This procedure is most commonly used to correct bulging fat around the eye as well as remove excess fat and skin on the eyelids. Although many patients desire this surgery to remove obvious signs of aging, there are also those who request the procedure because the fat around their eyes is causing vision issues. The specific type of surgery needed will vary depending on a patient’s needs and wants. However, in most cases, the eyelid surgery is done on each eyelid. Although, sometimes, it is sufficient to operate on only the lower or upper lids independently. Read more about the eyelid surgery/blepharoplasty procedure:
Brow Lift (Browplasty):
There are two reasons that brow lifts, or browplasty, are performed. One purpose is to correct either the vertical furrows that tend to occur between the eyebrows or to correct the horizontal furrows that oftentimes show up on the forehead, and the other reason is to raise the eyebrows to a higher position on the face. This is usually requested because aging causes the eyebrows to drop below the level of the bone above the eye, which results in a mean-looking appearance. When treating the furrows previously mentioned, the surgeon partially cuts the muscles to reduce the depth of the furrows. Botox also serves much the same purpose as it paralyzes the same muscles, but a brow lift is a more permanent treatment than Botox. Read more about the brow lift/browplasty procedure:
This type of procedure is used to correct over-protruding ears or ears that are too large for a patients’ tastes. Of course, ear reconstruction can also repair earlobes after an injury. However, the vast majority of patients find this procedure helpful to correct a physical issue they have dealt with for many years of their lives. Proper ear placement should have the top of the ear level with the eyebrows and should have the ear lobe approximately 1 to 1 ½ inches above the angle of the jaw. Individuals who find their ears do not fit this pattern, or those who have had some sort of injury to their ear that has caused a physical issue, can often benefit from ear reconstruction surgery.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty):
Nasal procedures are acquired for two main reasons. One common reason for nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is purely cosmetic, meaning the patient doesn’t like how their nose looks and wants it changed, while the other reason is to correct a poorly functioning nose. For example, some patients seek out nasal surgery as a means to correct their breathing problems, nasal drainage, sinus problems and even sleep issues that are a result of their improper nose structure.

Types of Body Contouring
Body contouring, is best defined as any cosmetic surgery procedure that alters the shape of various areas of the neck, torso, arms, and legs. In many cases, body contouring is implemented as a way to remove excess skin or fat after a substantial weight loss or after a pregnancy. Two of the most common body contour procedures are lipectomy and abdominoplasty, although there are many procedures that fall under the body contouring heading.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty):
Abdominoplasty is more commonly known as a tummy tuck. It is often requested by women after having children as a means to repair the resulting bulge in the lower abdomen area, which often occurs after a pregnancy. Other candidates for a tummy tuck include individuals who have carried extra weight in the past, which they have lost, and desire a tummy tuck to reduce fat through contouring and to remove extra skin as well as eliminate stretch marks. The tummy tuck is considered one of the most beneficial body contouring surgeries available due to the fact that patients achieve gratifying results from the procedure in a short amount of time.
Some patients who have smaller protrusions in the abdomen region can significantly benefit from liposuction alone, without a full tummy tuck. However, it depends on whether or not the abdominal muscles have been stretched. When the muscles have been stretched, a tummy tuck is needed to tighten the abdomen. It is worth noting that long-term results are based on the patients willingness to live a healthy lifestyle, which includes both eating a healthy diet and participating in plenty of exercise, so they do not replace the fat that was just removed via tummy tuck after their procedure.

Liposuction, or lipectomy, is one of the most popular body contouring procedures in both Europe and the United States. It is designed to remove areas of fat under the skin that has proven to be diet-resistant. Liposuction should not be used as a method of weight reduction but should instead be considered as a method of contouring a body that is already in good shape but needs some help with some resistant fat. Liposuction is most often performed on women’s hips and thighs and men’s love handles. It can also be used to remove fat from the face and under the chin and to reduce the fat in the belly when the abdomen is only slightly protruded.
This procedure is performed using suction and cannulas, or small tubes, which work together to remove the fat deposits from underneath the skin. This body contouring procedure involves minimal risk and requires a relatively short recovery period, which only adds to its popularity.
Cosmetic body surgery, or body contouring, is not designed to remove excessive amounts of fat from an individual’s body but is created to contour a body that just needs a little tweaking. In addition, after these contouring procedure, patients have to continue to live a healthy lifestyle to prevent the recurrence of the problem for which they sought the contour procedure in the first place Read more about the liposuction/lipectomy procedure:

Types of Skin Rejuvenation
Skin rejuvenation refers to various non-surgical procedures used to restore the youth of the skin, primarily around the face and neck. Skin rejuvenation may consist of one or several procedures and may be accompanied by cosmetic surgery which leads to an overall younger appearance.
Dermabrasion and Chemical Peels
The skin is usually damaged due to abuse it has suffered over the years from age and the sun. Dermabrasion and chemical peels are often employed to treat this common skin issue. The type of chemical used depends on the damage that is being addressed, meaning some chemicals are utilized for deeper rejuvenation. Lasers are also sometimes used to treat the same conditions, but has varying results. Ultimately, the skin is rejuvenated and ideally looking much less worn.

Sun damage and aging cause the skin to lose its elasticity, thickness and tone, leading to the onset of prominent wrinkles. Wrinkles are made more obvious due to muscle movement underneath the skin. Botox treats this issue by paralyzing the muscles that produce the wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, which will in turn diminish the look of wrinkles. Other uses of Botox includes treatment for muscle spasms, headaches and migraines. Read more about Botox:
Fillers of Collagen
Collagen is the supportive lattice-work of protein, which is located underneath the skin. With age, collagen decreases in the skin, which is a process usually caused by sun exposure and simply aging. This decrease in collagen causes wrinkles, lines and the loss of skin tone, leading to an overall older appearance. Fillers, like Juvederm®, work to correct this problem by the insertion of collagen via injection into the skin, which in turn gives the skin a smoother look and restores the support and tone of the skin. The collagen that was developed for injection is bovine or cattle collagen.
The face is the first aspect that is noticed when we meet new people, and for that reason, ensuring the face looks its best is wise. To achieve the ideal look, especially when age the sun do their damage, facial cosmetic procedures are the ideal way to recreate a youthful appearance. Read more about dermal fillers:
