The first thing that may come to mind when you think of cosmetic surgery are dramatic before and after pictures. While these cosmetic procedures can remarkably transform your appearance, some also make an extraordinary difference in your well-being and health. Below are common facial plastic surgeries, why they are done and how they can help you.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that transforms the appearance of your nose.
Primarily, rhinoplasty is done for cosmetic reasons. The nose is the most defining facial characteristic, and even the most minor changes can make a huge difference. In some cases, structural issues with the nose can cause breathing difficulties. Undergoing rhinoplasty surgery can alleviate those problems.
A blepharoplasty procedure removes the sagging skin around the eyes.As we age, muscles supporting your eyelids weaken, causing droopy eyelids and eyebrows. This not only makes you look older, but it interferes with your peripheral vision. A blepharoplasty makes your eyes look youthful and gives you a more well-rested and relaxed appearance.
If you have protruding ears, otoplasty can correct this issue. During the procedure, excessive cartilage is removed and permanent sutures are used to hold ears in place. All incisions are discreetly hidden behind the ears and out of view. If you are unhappy with the way your ears stick out of your head, or if your ears are too large in proportion to your head, otoplasty is the procedure for you. It will create a more youthful appearance by moving your ears closer to your head.
Dermabrasion is a procedure that gently exfoliates your skin, removing the outer layer and part of the thickest layer of your skin. During the procedure, your skin is numbed. Then, a smallrotating device is used to smooth these outer layers. This allows cells to regenerate, making your skin smoother and more youthful. Dermabrasion not only reduces the appearance of wrinkles, but can dramatically improve the appearance of scars, treat sun damage, remove actinic keratosis and remove tattoos.
