Cosmetic facial surgery, particularly for men, once had a certain stigma attached to it, discouraging many people from improving the appearance of their face for fear of what people might think. Fortunately, those days are now behind us as facial surgery is widely accepted and no social stigma is attached to it.
Many types of cosmetic facial surgery offer significant improvements with natural results that appear plausible. After your surgery, most people may simply remark that you look more “rested”. These surgeries have changed many lives and left patients with feelings of increased self-esteem and self-confidence. Some of the most common facial surgery procedures performed are blepharoplasty, a facelift, a neck lift, and ear pinning.
Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a very common surgical technique for repairing droopy eyelids. This condition is normally due to aging and may impair a person’s appearance and even their vision.
Droopy eyelids are very common in older people, and eyelid surgery may make a person appear years younger than their actual age. Eyelid surgery is normally performed on an outpatient basis. It helps correct sagging skin around your eyes that may obstruct your field of vision. The surgery often makes patients appear more youthful and alert.
The facelift is what most people probably think of when hearing the term “cosmetic facial surgery”. It helps enhance the appearance of the face. Many older people are bothered by sagging skin under the neck and around their eyes and jowls. A facelift helps correct these conditions by tightening the facial skin and shoring up the facial structure.
The procedure involves the lifting of soft facial tissues and the removal of excess skin. The skin is then re-draped over the new facial contours. Neck lift procedures are also commonly performed in conjunction with a facelift.
It is important to have realistic expectations when considering a facelift procedure. In addition to a neck lift, facelifts are often performed together with eyelid surgery.
Ear pinning, also known as otoplasty, involves the reshaping and/or resizing of the ears. This surgery is done for cosmetic purposes only, meaning it won’t help the patient hear better. However, it is great for people with oversized ears, or ears that stick out too far from their head.
