Facial plastic surgery Charlotte, NCFacial plastic surgery to look younger, better

You can have facial plastic surgery done to make you look younger, better, or both. Eyelid surgery, brow lifts and face lifts, along with neck lifts and malar pad lifts (lifts to the mid-cheek area), are the sorts of things you can do to look younger, and they’re often done simultaneously to reduce recovery time. Rhinoplasty, lip enhancement, facial implants and otoplasty (ear surgery) are the sorts of things you do to look better. Some of these procedures have to be done in an operating room, and need several weeks for recovery. Others can be done in the surgeon’s office, and only need a few days of recovery.

As a general rule, you should stop using any form of nicotine, as well as aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E and certain herbal supplements for two or three weeks before the procedure. Your surgeon will give you more specific advice.
