There are many different forms of facial surgery other than rhinoplasty including cosmetic chin surgery. This is sometimes performed using cheekbone implants (Malar Augmentation) to give the appearance of higher, more prominent cheekbones and better facial balance. Chin surgery (Genioplasty) affects the length and protrusion of the chin, and can either increase or decrease the projection length. Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is commonly done to “flatten” protruding ears back closer to the head. It can also include changing the shape or the size of large ears. Eyelid surgery (the medical term is Blepharoplasty) eliminates and removes excess skin and fat from the both (or either) the upper and lower eyelids. This can be performed as a single procedure of simultaneously with other surgical procedures of the face such as a facelift or brow lift.
People commonly seek cosmetic facial surgery, including Rhinoplasty surgery, for one or two different reasons. The first is to remove the wrinkles and other signs of aging such as skin sagging or jowls. The second reason is to prevent wrinkles as soon as they start to appear. Both situations produce results that will be different depending on the person’s individual characteristics.
The patients with more visible wrinkles before facial surgery will see the difference very easily since their wrinkles will have disappeared. They will look much younger with fresher looking skin. For patients who are undergoing surgery as a preventive measure, the visible differences will be less noticeable.
Most facial surgery procedures can be done under local anesthesia. For example, the facial surgery procedure known as menthoplasty is usually performed using only local anesthesia. Aesthetic facial surgery generally involves the placement of an enhancement through a cut created either within the face or in the mouth. Obviously, more invasive procedures will require the patient to be put to sleep.
With so many options available, many consumers aren’t sure of their options and can’t decide on the specific procedures that are best for them. It is best to research the plastic surgeon as well as the treatments you are considering. Many patients mistakenly believe that cosmetic surgery of the face will leave a person looking “stretched” with tight skin after a facelift. Thankfully, that is simply not true. A facelift performed correctly will likely not be apparent to other people. Of course, if a person appears very youthful when they are advanced in age, it is quite likely that their youthful appearance is the result of facial plastic surgery.
