Facial plastic surgery- different kinds
Facial plastic surgery in Charlotte, NC comes in two categories — procedures intended to make you look younger, and procedures intended to make you look better. Eyelid surgery, brow lifts and face lifts are in the first category, along with neck lifts and malar pad lifts (lifts to the mid-cheek area). More than one of these can be performed at the same time.
Nose jobs are in the second category. Also in this category arelip enhancement, facial implants and otoplasty (ear surgery). Otoplasty is almost unique in that it can be, and most often is, performed on small children. Lip enhancement is usually done either to fill out one or both of the lips, or to make the upper lip appear more full and in balance with the lower lip.The one thing you should never do is take a treatment that’s offered at a discount. These are very often performed by less qualified medical personnel.
The process of facial plastic surgery
Some of these procedures have to be done in an operating room, and require the patient to set aside several weeks for recovery. Others can be done in the surgeon’s office, and the patient only needs a few days to recover.
How you should prepare for facial plastic surgery depends on what procedure you want, but asa general rule, you should stop using nicotine in any form, as well as aspirin or ibuprofen, for the two or three weeksbefore the procedure.Nicotine constricts blood vessels and slows the healing process, while aspirin and ibuprofen thin the blood and cause more bruising.There are other things that should be avoided at this time, such as herbal supplements and vitamin E.
