What Is Facial Surgery?
The term “facial surgery” is an all-encompassing term that refers to advanced cosmetic procedures that are designed to rejuvenate and correct issues with the appearance of a person’s neck and facial area. Sometimes, facial surgeries are needed to correct exterior trauma or genetic deformities while other surgeries are used to treat the ravages of disease and injury. Most of the time, facial surgery focuses on one particular aspect of the face. Sometimes, however, people need more than one cosmetic procedure in order to get the results that they desire.
Facial Surgery Benefits
Facial surgery’s primary benefit is a noticeable and long-lasting improvement of a person’s appearance. When people look good, they feel good, so facial surgery can often be a tremendous boost to a person’s self-esteem. Facial procedures work by eliminating signs of aging like sagging skin, wrinkles, folds, and creases, as well as by enhancing symmetry and balance to facial features. For many of our clients, facial procedures are a way to get a new lease on life with a more youthful and attractive appearance.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Facial Surgery?
Every individual who is considering facial surgery has their own private and individual needs for doing so. For some people, it starts with a feeling of being unhappy with the way their face looks, whether that’s due to signs of aging, injuries, or asymmetries they’ve had since birth. The techniques involved in facial surgery are very safe for adults who are in good health and have realistic expectations about what plastic surgery can accomplish.
Types of Facial Surgery Offered By Buinewicz Plastic Surgery
At the Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, Dr. Buinewicz offers the following types of facial plastic surgery:
Commonly referred to as a “nose job”, rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic facial procedures performed around the world. A rhinoplasty works by sculpting the shape of the nose, increasing the size of some areas or reducing other areas, such as a hump or bump in the middle. Rhinoplasty can also involve changing the width of the nostrils, contouring the tip of the nose, and/or altering the overall angle of the nose. A successful rhinoplasty will result in a harmonious and attractive balance of features of the nose and between the nose and the rest of the face.
This is the medical term for an “eye lift” or eyelid surgery, where the eyelids are reshaped and lifted in order to smooth out the loose, sagging skin around the eyes.
Technically known as rhytidectomy, facelifts are the third most popular type of facial plastic surgery in the United States. A facelift cannot do anything to stop the march of time and the aging process, but it can smooth out and re-contour the face to remove imperfections and tighten up loose and sagging skin to achieve a more youthful and attractive appearance.
This popular sub-category of the rhytidectomy works by smoothing out wrinkles and sagging skin on the lower part of the face while tightening the area around the chin to create a rejuvenated appearance.
Also known as platysmaplasty, a neck lift is excellent for eradicating the “turkey neck” effect that makes people look older than their actual age. The neck lift works by tightening the skin and muscles of the neck while eliminating stubborn pockets of fat under the jaw to result in a sculpted, contoured chin and neck.
Sometimes called an “ear job” or ear surgery, otoplasty refers to any work done on the ears, including resizing the ears, making the shape and size of the ears symmetrical, and/or pinning protruding ears back at a different angle closer to the head.
A very popular procedure, lip augmentation adds volume and fullness to the lips that result in a more youthful appearance. Lip augmentation relies on a combination of injections and implants to create more attractive smiles.
Sometimes called a forehead lift, this procedure corrects eyebrow lines that have started to droop, along with sagging skin in and around the eyebrows. When the forehead is lifted, the wrinkles and folds in the skin around the eyebrows, which can make a person look tired, worried, or angry, are smoothed out. A forehead lift can also be used to smooth out the skin on the forehead itself and reposition the eyebrows to result in a more youthful and invigorated appearance.
Is Facial Surgery Covered by Insurance?
Every health insurance provider has their own unique rules about when facial surgery may be covered. Many procedures that are designed to repair damage from injury illness, previous surgeries, or deformities may be covered. However, it is fairly rare for health insurance providers to offer coverage for facial procedures that are deemed to be purely elective in nature.
When you come into our office for your consultation, Dr. Buinewicz will assess your needs and condition and then explain all of your options for payment and financing.
