Plastic surgery is a booming industry in the United States of America. Among its stratum is facelift surgery. To have an idea what a facelift is, this plastic surgical procedure is the tightening of the facial tissues in order to get a youthful and more rejuvenated look. There are more than a few methods being offered, which can be combined with the facelift procedure. Both the patient and plastic surgeon should thoroughly discuss the most appropriate method that is most beneficial for the patient.
The patient should be honest with her expectations of the results of the surgery at first hand. The doctor will then explain to the patient what can be expected, which mostly depends on the patient’s age. Face lift can focus on particular parts of the face like the nose (rhinoplasty), eyelids (blepharoplasty), and the forehead region (browplasty).
One of the widely popular complementary facelift surgery is rhinoplasty. Plastic surgeons can opt to integrate this procedure on the condition that there is minimal risk, as this will obviously lengthen the operation. This technique is recommended for patients who want their noses to be less prominent or their nostrils narrower. An uneven nose bridge or crooked nose can be removed to make the patient’s nose less distinct. Generally, it is the patient’s preference on what she wants to achieve, of course as long as it is approved by her plastic surgeon. Rhinoplasty is also commonly called a nose job.
A blepharoplasty surgeon can combine this procedure with a facelift. Of course, it should be noted that this is not as detailed like that of an eyelid surgery. The objective in doing the blepharosplasty is to cut out the eyes’ drooping part, a common occurrence amongst aging individuals. An individual’s inherent physiological characteristics can also prematurely set off the droopy look when extremely exposed to the sun, making the person look old and worn-out due to the eyes’ drooping appearance. Blepharoplasty and facelift superbly complements the other for the reason that the facelift can address the lines and creases in and around the, mouth, nose, eyes but cannot permanently get rid of the droop as the blepharoplasty can.
Lastly, most plastic surgeons consider browplasty as a facelift procedure even though this directly targets the forehead region. Facial expressions affect the brows due to wrinkles. The creases, lines and wrinkles are removed to make the forehead even and lift the eyebrows to achieve a more fresh and youthful look.
The options mentioned above are just some of the procedures that are commonly performed to complement facelift surgery. As for any other operation you are considering to undergo to enhance your looks, always consult a licensed medical expert who can give you proper recommendations.
