Facial Plastic Surgery Techniques
Plastic surgery is becoming more and more common as a way to improve one’s appearance. As long as the patient is well-informed about the procedure and follows the surgeon’s pre-operation and post-operation instructions it is quite safe and effective. The otoplasty, rhinoplasty and facelift are three of the most common plastic surgery procedures. They are considered very safe and can vastly improve someone’s appearance.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery is a surprisingly common plastic surgery procedure. There are many places to get a Beverly Hills otoplasty as there are many requests for the procedure. A lot of parents request the procedure for their children. Children with ears which protrude from the head are often the subject of ridicule from their peers. Correcting the problem early can make the child’s social life easier as he or she grows up. The ears reach full size at age five or six and many plastic surgeons actually recommend getting the procedure done at a young age. The cartilage is more pliable and easier to reshape in young children’s ears. Still, patients of all ages often get this procedure done. In addition to correcting the ear protrusion, the surgeon can also reshape the ears or reduce them in size.
When it comes to getting a rhinoplasty Beverly Hills has many options. This is another procedure which is very common in Southern California. The nose is one of the first things people see when they meet someone new and an aesthetically pleasing nose can go a long way in improving someone’s self esteem. Most people who choose to get nose surgery have an idea of what they would like their nose to look like. When visiting the surgeon for a consultation, it is a good idea to bring pictures as examples. Before undergoing the surgery, it is important to be prepared to take a few weeks off from work or school. After rhinoplasty surgery it often takes a couple weeks before the patient can even return to their regular activities.
Since there are so many people requesting a facelift Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeons often find themselves performing this procedure. As people are living longer and longer, the desire to stay youthful-looking has become a priority in society. Facelift surgery tightens the skin of the lower half of the face and neck, resulting in tighter, firmer skin, a more defined jaw line and younger looking face. During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision under the chin, behind the hairline in front of the ear, and along the inside of the hairline. In Beverly Hills, browlift surgery often accompanies the facelift. This is of course more expensive but can do even more to give the patient a youthful appearance. Patients can return to work after a week or two but the full effects will not be seen until the bruising and swelling from the procedure subsides.
