Facial plastic surgery- planning your surgery
Facial plastic surgery is in your near future? It’s important to prepare for the procedure. The general rules are that you should stop smoking and drinking for a few weeks before any procedure, and refrain from taking aspirin or ibuprofen for the same amount of time. There are also vitamins and herbal supplements you should avoid during this time. For most procedures, you are going to need at least a week at home resting, and maybe more. You may need to use some vacation or sick time for this. Exactly how long, and what else you will need to do, depends on the procedure.
The three most common facial plastic surgeries are rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and face lifts. Another common surgery is lip enhancement, which can either make both lips fuller or adjust the contours of the upper lip. Other procedures are neck lifts, otoplasty, facial implants and malar pad lifts. A neck lift takes loose skin and fat out from under the jaw. Otoplasty helps the ears lie flattered, and can be given to small children. Facial implants in the chin and cheeks add balance and definition to the face. A malar pad lift helps the cheeks look younger and fuller.
Choosing the best to do the work
If you have decided you want to do a major improvement in your appearance, the first step is to talk with an expert. Maybe a simple skincare procedure, like laser skin rejuvenation, can do everything you need. If you decide on facial plastic surgery, you are going to want it done by someone with many years of experience, someone most likely to know on a step-by-step basis how to perform the operation that will give you precisely the results that you want. This should be someone with many positive testimonials and a gallery of before and after photographs of patients.
What you should not do is accept any discounted procedure online, or travel abroad for cheaper surgery. Ideally, this is an expense you will only need to make once in your life. Choose the best, not the cheapest.
