What is Facial Surgery?
Facial surgery is ideal for patients of all ages who feel uncomfortable with the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, creases, folds, and sagging skin. There is little that you can do on your own to eliminate these concerns, and even consumer products that you buy will not deliver on the promises that motivated you. Facial aging is caused by shifting fat, as well as natural reductions in collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Sun damage will also give you an aged appearance, and these concerns can be remedied with our medical aesthetics services.
How Much Does Facial Surgery Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your facial surgery, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
Who is a Good Candidate for Facial Surgery?
If you avoid looking in the mirror or are frustrated with what you see, facial plastic surgery may be an option. The goal of these procedures is to target problems that make you look older while maintaining a natural and age-appropriate look.
Facial plastic surgery should not be confused with facial reconstruction surgery. Reconstructive procedures serve a very different purpose, such as repairing damage caused by trauma and accidents to the face. If you are uncertain if you need cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shawn.
What Types of Facial Surgery Should I Consider?
- Facelift and Mini Facelift if you have moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and creases on your face that cannot be reduced with other plastic surgery options and medical aesthetics
- Neck Lift and Mini Neck Lift if you routinely hide your neck because of the wrinkles, sagging, and crinkled skin
- Submental liposuction
- Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) if your upper or lower eyelids are sagging and giving you a tired appearance
- Brow Lift if you notice sagging in your forehead and brow area
