Introducing Facial Remodeling!
When you think of remodeling, what comes to mind? Home remodeling, whereupon you upgrade or change your home to make it look how you want. The same concept applies to facial remodeling. Through a variety of advanced, painless procedures, patients can achieve their ideal shape, contour, and overall facial appearance. Facial remodeling is a safe, efficient way to get real results and increase your confidence.
Types of Facial Remodeling Procedures
From forehead reduction to the reconfiguration of the cheeks, chin, and jawline, facial remodeling can completely reconfigure your face. Best of all, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” procedure; your surgeon will work with you to develop a customized procedure to get you real results. No more worrying about age lines, appearing too “manly” or “feminine”, or hiding your face.
If you’re self-conscious about your “five-head”, forehead reduction could be for you. The name is a bit of a misnomer. In reality, your surgeon isn’t actually manipulating the skin of the forehead itself but instead lowers the hairline through two small incisions, shortening the forehead. Forehead reduction is done under general anesthesia, and patients can return home immediately following the procedure. Most importantly, though forehead reduction surgery changes the appearance of the eyebrows, it does not raise them.
Through a variety of surgical and non-surgical methods, your surgeon can reduce the width of your lower face and change the overall shape of your face. Surgically, your surgeon will perform the procedure under general anesthesia. Non-surgical procedures typically involve botox injections. In both cases, patients are free to return home immediately after the procedure with minimal downtime and no visible scarring.
Cheek & Chin Augmentation
Cheek and chin implants can be used to redefine the dimensions of the chin and cheekbones to dramatically alter your appearance by enhancing the features of your face. Like most facial cosmetic procedures, your surgeon will work with you to develop the plan of action that works best for you. Most cheek and chin augmentations are performed under general anesthesia in an hour or two, and patients can return home immediately following the procedure.
Recovery & Results
Depending on the procedure performed, recovery time for facial remodeling procedures is typically somewhere between one and four weeks. It’s normal to have mild to moderate bruising and swelling for a few days post-procedure, but any abnormal swelling or bruising should be addressed with your doctor. Patients are advised to return for post-operative checkups within a few weeks of the procedure and to avoid intensive activity until permitted by a physician.
After recovering, patients can see results in as little as a few weeks with no visible scars or obvious signs of manipulation. Not everyone is a candidate for every procedure; talk with your doctor about whether you’d be a good candidate for your desired procedure.
