What Is Facial Surgery?
Facial surgery includes a variety of procedures that are performed to correct, enhance or improve the appearance of the face or neck. Some facial surgeries are performed to correct deformities or disfigurements caused by genetics, injury, trauma or disease. Others are performed to restore one’s youthful appearance and improve one’s aesthetic appeal. In most cases, facial surgery is performed on one area of the face and it may be necessary to undergo more than one procedure to achieve the total improvement you need.
Facial Surgery Benefits
The primary advantage of facial surgery is the improvement of a person’s overall appearance, restoring symmetry, balance and youthful smoothness to the face. Facial surgeries can enhance your profile, correct imbalances, repair damaged tissue, eliminate sagging skin, wrinkles and other signs of aging, and as a result of your improved appearance, you will also experience renewed self-confidence and a boost to your self-esteem.
Who Makes A Good Candidate For Facial Surgery?
The decision to undergo a visible transformation via facial surgery is a very personal one and every individual has his or her own unique reason for making this choice. Facial surgery or other cosmetic procedures may be appropriate for people who are unhappy with their facial appearance due to facial deformities, signs of aging, injury or other issues. We recommend these procedures for adults who are in good health and have reasonable expectations regarding the outcomes of plastic surgery.
Types of Facial Surgery Offered
At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Work offers the following types of facial plastic surgery:
The brow lift – sometimes referred to as a forehead lift – is a procedure that corrects a drooping brow line and eliminates sagging skin in the eyebrow area. It erases the furrows and wrinkles that make you appear worried, angry, tired or upset. The brow lift brings a refreshed, youthful appearance to the forehead area above the eyes and may effectively smooth the forehead and reposition the eyebrows to a higher place to make your face appear more fresh and open.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is performed to correct or reshape the ears. A simple and common procedure performed on adults and children, otoplasty usually takes between two and three hours to complete. Small inconspicuous Incisions are typically located behind the ear.
Eyelid surgery procedures are performed to rejuvenate the area around the eyes by removing excess sagging skin around the eyelids. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a less extensive procedure for patients who only have excess fat pockets underneath the lower eyelids.
Rhytidectomy, commonly known as a facelift, has become the third most popular cosmetic surgery in the U.S. Although a facelift cannot stop the aging process, it can correct imperfections, eliminate sagging skin, create a more defined facial contour and restore a more youthful appearance.
Lip augmentation procedures are done to add fullness and volume to the lips, eliminate thin vertical lines around the lip line and rejuvenate the lips and smile. Lip augmentation may be achieved using either implants or injections.
The neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure that effectively tightens the muscles and skin in the neck, eliminating the dreaded “turkey neck” effect. A neck lift reduces the appearance of bands in the neck, extracts fatty pockets under the chin and eliminates sagging skin beneath the jawline for a firmer, more defined jawline and neck, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for a “nose job” and is among the most common plastic surgery procedures performed worldwide. This procedure is performed to either reduce or increase the size of the nose, remove an unwanted hump, change the shape of the nose, reshape the tip or the bridge of the nose, redefine the width of the nostrils or alter the angle of the nose. The goal of a successful rhinoplasty procedure is to achieve a balance between the nose and other facial features.
Is Facial Surgery Covered By Insurance?
In some cases, facial surgery is performed to correct facial deformities or repair trauma from injury, illness, prior surgery or genetics. In these cases, there is a possibility that it may be covered by insurance. If the surgery is performed for purely cosmetic reasons, insurance companies will not typically cover it. Whether or not your procedure is covered will depend upon the type of insurance coverage you have and the reasons you are undergoing the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Work will assess your condition and explain all available options. This is also a good time to ask about payment and financing options.
How Much Does A Facial Surgery Procedure Cost?
Every cosmetic procedure is personalized and tailored to each individual patient and, in many cases, a combination of procedures is performed to achieve a total makeover. In the case where procedures are not covered by insurance, the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery proudly offers CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending as financing options to keep our procedures affordable and accessible to all of our patients. Our office also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
