A facial surgery is carried out to enhance the overall appearance of a person by changing the way they look, resulting in enhanced self-confidence and esteem. The procedure could be reconstructive or cosmetic by nature. Patients suffering from birth defects or injury due to some accident, usually go for a reconstructive face surgery, bringing harmony to their facial appearance. A cosmetic facial surgery is performed to enhance the overall appearance of an individual feeling dissatisfied with the imperfections in their looks due to lack of facial harmony.
In order to rectify the imperfections in the face, a person can choose from among various cosmetic surgery procedures available today. Some of the most common of such surgeries include rhinoplasty or nose job, face lifts, eye lifts, ear surgery and liposuction. Rhinoplasty corrects and reconstructs the shape, size, form and function of the internal and external part of nose enhancing the overall appearance of a person’s face. The excess of fat underneath chin or around the neck area can be removed through liposuction. Facial implants are used to bring balance and proportion to overall structure of a person’s face. Ear surgery or otoplasty procedure is carried out to reshape the cartilage of the ear making it less protruding to the shape of the face. A facial reconstruction surgery helps correct skin defects caused due to any prior surgery, disease or scarring. An eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty helps improve the functionality that contributes to the overall appearance of the eyes.
Though the recovery time from a facial surgery varies from procedure to procedure, it also depends upon the general health of the patient. Most of the patients are discharged the same day after the surgery but some procedures require them to be in the hospital for a day or two. The patients are advised to avoid much physical activities and travel for a week or two and should abstain from any kind of heavy lifting for at least a period of one month.
