How To Approach Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Facial rejuvenation is a term that is often used to describe several treatments that are meant to repair skin damage. There are also several other ways to improve the appearance of your skin, including resurfacing and surgical procedures. There is no single treatment that is right for all patients. Because every face is unique, you will need to have a treatment plan customized toward your anatomy. 

Skin Rejuvenation Options Available

Skin rejuvenation refers to anything that makes your skin look better. This can be anything from skincare products to treatments and office procedures. If you visit a dermatologist's office, you can participate in a chemical peel that will remove the top layer of your skin and improve your appearance. These procedures are more useful against fine lines and discoloration but have no effect on deeper wrinkles. 

Some Procedures Are Less Effective Than Others

Some skin rejuvenation procedures are not very effective. For example, microdermabrasion will only give you a glow for the first 24 hours. Instead, you need more effective methods of skin resurfacing such as laser resurfacing. If you avoid sun exposure after a treatment and use skincare products, you'll see much better results. 

Meeting with a Plastic Surgeon

When you are meeting with a plastic surgeon, you should always begin by describing what you would like to change about your face. Even if there is a specific area that you would like to improve, the plastic surgeon will need to work on several other parts of your face to make sure that the results are symmetrical. Every part of the face is connected.

Starting with Simple Solutions

In some cases, you may only need a conservative treatment. For example, you may need Botox to remove wrinkles. Dermal fillers can give you a more full appearance and treat any area of concern. As you see how the plastic surgery treatments improve your appearance, you can begin to consider other ways that you would like to change your appearance.

More Aggressive Procedures

When more conservative measures are not effective enough, you may want to switch to surgeries, such as a face-lift or a neck left, which can treat issues with the underlying soft tissue foundation. Regardless of what you want to correct, there is likely a procedure that will be able to improve your appearance, and you will simply need to keep all options open and begin with conservative treatments.
