Cosmetic surgery is a type of surgery that improves and enhances the aesthetic appeal of certain features of the face or body. For many people who are unhappy with certain aspects of their appearance, this can be a god send. Often, people feel uncomfortable in their own skin because they believe certain features detract from their overall appearance. This, in turn, can lower their self-esteem and confidence and make them feel less worthy or even inferior. This can be especially worse for those who are unhappy with certain facial features as these features are the ones that are most visible. However, facial cosmetic surgery at our Boston practice can help restore an individual’s confidence by improving these certain features.
Cosmetic procedures have never been more safe and effective than before. These procedures are increasingly popular for people from all walks of life and this is especially true for facial procedures. Common facial procedures include rhinoplasty, face lift, and cheek or chin implants. These procedures can provide a significant improvement to an individual’s overall appearance in a safe and professionally controlled manner.
- Rhinoplasty: This procedure is designed to surgically improve the appearance of the nose through removal of a dorsal hump, narrowing of the bridge, and through improving the appearance of the nostrils. This can be done in two ways, either through the open technique or through the closed technique. The open technique involves making an incision between the nostrils and lifting the skin to expose the underlying nasal structure. Then the surgeon would make the necessary adjustments from there. In the closed technique, all incisions are made on the interior of the nose. The surgeon works and makes the necessary adjustments from within the nostrils. Patients can return to work within a week or two and swelling will gradually dissipate over the following months
- Face lift: This surgery removes excess skin to erase fine lines and wrinkles on the face. This is done by mapping out problem areas of sagging skin and then trimming excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying tissue as necessary. Incisions are usually hidden in the hairline. This procedure can significantly improve an aged appearance.
- Facial implants: In some cases, an individual’s facial features can benefit from improved symmetry and proportion. This can be achieved by the surgical insertion of cheek or chin implants. These implants are designed to feel and look natural while adding a better proportion to the face.
Facial procedures can significantly improve the aesthetics of the face and make the patient more comfortable in their own skin. It can give them the boost they need to put their best foot forward in all aspects of their life, whether that is in the professional or private spheres.
