Patients may undergo plastic surgery for many reasons

Facial plastic surgery offers Charlotte, NC residents many benefits. While most people equate plastic surgery with improving one’s appearance it can also be done for medical or reconstructive purposes. Facial plastic surgery can be used to fight signs of aging, rejuvenate one’s appearance, fix a perceived flaw, and correct medical issues. 

Facial plastic surgery encompasses many different procedures

There are many types of facial plastic surgery people can get. A rhinoplasty can be done to reshape your nose or fix a deviated septum. Facelifts, neck lifts, and browlifts, are all surgical options to help tighten loose skin and lift sagging skin back to its proper place, helping eliminate signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles in the process. Eyelid surgery can be done on both upper and lower eyelids to alleviate puffiness under the eyes and heaviness above the eyes that can impact your vision if left untreated. 

Facial implants are also facial plastic surgery options. Chin implants can help round out your face and strengthen your jawline. Cheek implants are an option for people with naturally weak cheekbones or who are experiencing sallow, sunken looking cheeks. Not only can facial implants fill out your face, they can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the process. 

Though many don’t think about it, facial plastic surgery can also entail nonsurgical options. Fillers can help plump the skin and can be injected into the lips to give people the perfect pout. Injectables such as BOTOX are also popular. This injectable is used to paralyze muscles and prevent the skin from forming wrinkles, helping patients look younger quickly. 

Be sure to check with your insurance company to see if they cover any procedures

Facial plastic surgery is often something patients must save up money to be able to have, as many insurance companies won’t cover the cost. When done for cosmetic reasons, the majority of insurance companies won’t cover the surgery, and anything that stems from it such as the cost of medications and treatment should any complications arise. 

However, if facial plastic surgery is done for medical reasons, such as correcting a deviated septum or for reconstructive reasons, insurance may cover part or all of it. It’s always a good idea to contact your insurance carrier to see what they will or will not cover.
