Rejuvenation Surgery

Rejuvenation surgery is for the 40 and over set. This type of surgery includes procedures such as face lift, brow lift, neck lift or eyelid surgery to restore the youthful contours to the face. These surgical procedures can also be performed in combination with each other to create an all over natural balanced result. This is known as pan-facial rejuvenation.

Corrective Facial Plastic Surgery

The second major type of facial surgery is corrective facial plastic surgery to correct facial features that may not be in balance with the face such as surgery for the nose and ears. These procedures are usually performed at a younger age; the ears can be corrected anytime from age 6. Rhinoplasty may generally be performed from ages 16-18 and upwards although, many older patients do present for whom nose or ear surgery was not a viable option in their younger years.

Refinement Of The Skin

Another type of facial surgery is surgery to refine the skin. This includes skin resurfacing via laserbrasion, dermabrasion or chemical skin peels. This treatment spans all age groups as it is used to improve skin in the young that may require improvement from acne scarring, heavy freckling or spotting. In the older patient, it is also used commonly for fine lines that women develop around their lips or around the eyes.

The Important Decision

The most important decision that a patient will make in deciding to have facial plastic surgery is who their surgeon will be. The quality of the result is dependent firstly on the expertise of the surgeon but also includes the patient’s tissues, lifestyle and adherence to pre & post-operative instructions.
