Women’s facial plastic surgery

The basics of women’s facial plastic surgery

Women’s facial plastic surgery is still the most common kind of facial plastic surgery, although more and more men are seeking out cosmetic surgery for various reasons. Operating on a woman’s face is slightly different than a man’s. The female face is usually smaller, which means the surgeon must be capable of more delicate work, and the skin has less collagen, which makes it prone to looking older.


In spite of this, surgery on a female face in Charlotte NC is in many ways easier. The skin tends to be thinner, less oily, and more flexible, and the ligaments are usually not as strong, which makes it possible to manipulate it to greater effect. The doctor doesn’t need to worry about hair growth, except for vellus hair which is well nigh invisible. There is less vascular skin on a female face, which means less post-operative bleeding.


Women’s features

There are certain facial traits generally seen as female in Charlotte NC, which women’s facial plastic surgery is geared towards producing, enhancing or emphasizing. They include a greater lateral arch to the eyebrows, a narrower nose, fuller lips and smoother skin. When a surgeon operates on a woman’s face, it is important that he or she to do nothing that might tamper with these qualities. But if a woman doesn’t already have these qualities, a good surgeon can also bestow them on her. Reducing scar tissue and discoloration in the skin is also a common request.
