· The Facelift
By far one of the most popular facial plastic surgery methods, the face lifting procedure is sometimes known as a rhytidectomy. The facelift is a surgical procedure to improve signs of aging in the face and neck. The goal is to improve the appearance of the face by lifting and tightening the skin and sub-dermal muscle tissue. It is considered a face lifting procedure, because it is designed for patients with loose, sagging, overly relaxed skin to undergo a lift in order to eliminate deep folds and lines around prominent areas along the lower face such as the mouth and nose. In addition, it is very common amongst those patients who have aged quite a bit as they are known to experience facial volume loss, and a loss of vital skincare proteins such as collagen and elastin – as well as excess facial fat. Without this volume, the patient’s face gives the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially along the jawline. In addition, this can also cause patients to suffer from loose skin along the neck area, revealing a double chin or turkey neck – often why this procedure is performed with a neck lift as well.
· The Neck Lift
As we mentioned, the face lifting procedure is often performed in conjunction with the neck lift procedure, as the loss of volume in both of these areas will often reveal fine lines and wrinkles within the upper neck and lower jawline area. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Essentially, the neck lift is a facelift for the neck area. Generally, the best candidates for such procedures are those individuals who are experiencing a loss of facial contours, and a crisp, clean jawline due to the addition of loose, hanging skin – often caused by issues such as genetics, gravity, environmental issues, stress and aging overall. Often when patients are experiencing loose, hanging skin along the cheeks, jawline, and neck area, they will opt for a full facelift in addition to a neck lift, as this will help them eliminate wrinkles and fine lines within the area.
· The Eyelid Lift
Another relatively common facial plastic surgery procedure is the eyelid lift, otherwise known as a blepharoplasty. The eyelid lift is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids, or both at the same time – depending on the patient’s needs. The eyelid lift is done to alleviate both aesthetic issues, as well as functional issues. The ideal candidate is someone who is suffering from loose, sagging skin around the eyes – creating the appearance of folds, while disrupting your upper eyelid’s natural contours, in certain cases this can cause adverse effects to your vision, fat deposits in the eyelid, leading to puffiness and discomfort in the eye area, under-eye bags, drooping eyelids, and excess skin & wrinkles. Like other face lifting procedures, the excess skin tissue is removed, in order to tighten and revitalize the look and function of the eyelid area.
By far one of the most popular and commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedures is the rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. Considering that the nose is positioned at the direct center of the face, and therefore can cause a number of different changes to the overall ratio and harmony of the other facial features, the rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most vital procedures around. It is designed to treat and improve a number of different aspects of the nose and face overall. Depending on the overall size, shape and positioning of the nose, it can either help or hinder the overall appearance of the face. By removing excess unwanted tissue, rhinoplasty can change the width of the bridge and nostrils, alter the nasal profile and visible hump, alter the appearance of the tip of the nose, causing the nose to look ‘hooked’, ‘drooping’, or ‘bulbous’ and much more.
· Chin and Neck Liposuction
Chin and neck liposuction is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed on the face for both men and women, as it can have a drastic effect on the overall appearance of the face and all of its features. Often, men and women, as they age, can build up fatty deposits along the neck and chin, and quite often these areas can be quite resistant to diet and exercise and therefore difficult to slim down without the help of chin and neck liposuction treatments. The reason why this area is such a common area of the face to have liposuction performed is because of it positioning near the jawline, and the fact that this area can drastically alter the look of an individual’s face – any added fatty deposits in this area can cause individuals to appear to have an overly “chubby” face and cause an individual to look at the appearance of their slim, finely toned jawline and contours. This is one of the most prominent areas of the face, as it is integral to having an aesthetically pleasing, thin, well-toned face. Using a facial liposuction cannula, liposuction specialist, Dr. Voskin will slowly break up fat, moving it back and forth to slowly but surely vacuum away all the fat within the area, until you achieve the well-toned and trim, facial profile you want.
The fact is that facial plastic surgery is one of the most important aspects of aesthetic enhancement, as it can have a drastic look on an individual’s overall look and appearance, within only a few lifts, nips, and tucks.
