Facial plastic surgery is a popular form of cosmetic plastic surgery used to correct birth defects, enhance one’s natural features or to help achieve a younger, more rejuvenated appearance.
Commonly known as facial rejuvenation surgery, face lifts can help you achieve a younger look, sometimes helping you achieve a younger feel- as the old saying goes, “you are only as old as you feel”. Many cutting edge options are available to achieve your desired result in a variety of price ranges. California Surgical Institute offers the latest technologies for minimally invasive techniques using endotines. Our plastic surgeons are also specialized in mini face lifts under local anesthesia, mid-face lifts and full face lifts (traditional face lifts), including face lift techniques creating incisions inside the mouth, resulting in a “no scar facelift”. Brow lifts and neck lifts are also common facial rejuvenation procedures, used to help achieve a younger, smoother appearance. Depending on your skin type and aesthetic expectations, your surgeon will recommend which procedure is the best option for you.
Eyelid surgery is commonly performed with a facelift to correct what many refer to as “droopy eyes”. Eyes say a lot about a person. Many patients have said that they decided to undergo this procedure because they no longer wanted to look sad or mad. Many are just plain “tired of looking tired”. A blepharoplasty can also be used to help correct a medical condition known as ptosis, where the eyelid droops due to lack of muscle definition or damaged nerves. It can also be used to remove excess skin causing vision problems. In some cases, this procedure can be covered by your insurance if it is for medical necessity.
Facial plastic surgery also encompasses facial implant surgery, otoplasty (ear surgery) and rhinoplasty. These procedures can be used to help provide you with better contour of your face. Facial implants are often used alongside other procedures, such as cheek implants with a face lift to help revive the appearance of fat pads, which often become more hollow as one ages. Chin implants can be used to improve the appearance of an underdeveloped chin or to enhance the appearance after a “nose job”. Although rhinoplasty is one of the more popular cosmetic procedures, studies have shown that the nose holds little value. The goal of a rhinoplasty is to alter the size and/or shape of the nose to provide better facial harmony, enhancing the appearance of the eyes (the #1 most valuable asset ranked in the studies mentioned previously).
