Facial surgery is generally split into two primary categories: functional and cosmetic. Functional facial surgery, also known as medically indicated surgery, restores or protects the function of your face. For example, a person with a drooping eyelid may get an eyelid lift to improve vision in the affected eye. Cosmetic surgery can improve aesthetics. A person who has a large facial scar or birthmark may decide to have cosmetic surgery to reduce the look of the blemish. Some facial surgeries can address both functional and cosmetic concerns. If you are unhappy with some aspect of your face, there are several reasons you may want to consider facial surgery.
A Boost in Confidence
Exerting control over your body can be very empowering, especially if the problem area is having a negative effect on your career or social life. Whether it’s protruding ears, wrinkles or even a sagging brow line, you could feel more confident and self-assured once you’ve had the blemish repaired to your satisfaction.
If the excess skin around your eyes is impairing your vision, facial surgery could make improvements to your quality of life. Depending on the condition, these improvements could be profound.
Less Time and Money Spent on Makeup
Both men and women may spend a lot of money on cosmetics in an attempt to cover up facial problem areas or flaws. Makeup formulations used for contouring may be far more expensive than standard beauty products, taking a bite out of your wallet.
Additionally, the application process may be long and involved. If you’re tired of the ongoing expense and time commitments of a temporary fix, facial surgery could repair the problem permanently.
Allowing Your Personality to Shine Through
It may be difficult to go through life known primarily for a facial flaw. It may be demoralizing and detract attention from who you are as a person. If you want to bring your personality to the forefront, facial surgery could help you get the look you want and detract attention from the facial issue.
