What is the most common facial cosmetic surgery procedure?
Many patients seek facial cosmetic surgery to reverse changes due to aging, such as loose skin, reduced volume, loss of jawline contour, sagging jowls, or a double chin.
Modern plastic surgery grows in popularity annually in the United States, becoming increasingly commonplace and more widely accepted. In Dr. Weber’s practice, these are the most common facial cosmetic surgeries.
The most commonly performed and most difficult facial plastic surgery is rhinoplasty or a nose job. Rhinoplasty is the surgical molding or shaping of the nose for more harmonious facial features. Dr. Weber performs between three and five rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty procedures weekly.
Improving the shape and size of the nose can dramatically enhance already attractive facial features by:
- Repairing nasal structures for improved breathing
- Correcting imperfections of the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils
- Restoring a more balanced and harmonious look
- Correcting a nose that is too flat or wide
There are two types of rhinoplasty procedures: reduction rhinoplasty, which reduces the size of the nose, and augmentation rhinoplasty, which enlarges an overly small nose. Also, you can correct a previous rhinoplasty with a revision rhinoplasty.
Deep plane facelift and neck lift
Other increasingly popular facial cosmetic procedures are the facelift and the neck lift. Dr. Weber performs up to three deep plane facelift or deep neck lift procedures per week, providing dramatic results that still appear natural. The vast majority of these procedures are performed in our in office surgical suite WITHOUT the need for general anesthesia or a trip to the surgery center.
A facelift can reposition, lift, and tighten the face and neck structures to address drooping and loss of volume, so you may be perceived as looking up to ten years younger. Some of the other benefits associated with a facelift include the following:
- Reduction in facial creases and folds
- Reduces a double chin by removing submental fat
- Lifts and repositions sagging jowls
- Eliminated the “turkey neck” or banding and cording in the neck
- Minimal scarring
- Reduced downtime
The deep plane facelift achieves all the benefits of a full facelift for a more youthful aesthetic without pulling the skin too tightly. It releases ligaments and repositions tissues beneath the SMAS layer and the platysma muscle.
A neck lift improves visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. The procedure is best for patients who want to improve the appearance of their neck but are not ready for a full facelift because their cheeks and lower face are still relatively youthful.
Some of the benefits of a neck lift include the following:
- Reduced double chin
- Correcting crepe-like skin
- Improved neck banding
- Reduced “turkey neck”
- Reduced sagging and wrinkles
- Improved definition in the jaw area
Upper/lower eyelid lift
As the eyes age, the upper lids droop and sag while the lower lids become puffy and discolored. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is one of the most common facial aesthetic procedures; Dr. Weber performs approximately five eyelid surgeries in any given week. Excess skin and fatty deposits are removed during the procedure while the eyelid tissues are sculpted and tightened.
The surgery reduces puffy eyelids and sagging eyelid skin, smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines to restore a more balanced and harmonious aesthetic. The benefits of an upper or lower eyelid lift include the following:
- Correction of drooping lids
- Removal of crepe paper skin changes
- Sculpting of the drooping and lax upper eyelid tissues
- Reduced puffiness, bags, discoloration, and fat deposits
- Improved vision when the drooping eyelid obscures vision
- A more pleasant and inviting facial expression
- Well-hidden incisions behind the lower eyelid or in the upper eyelid crease
