Facial plastic surgery is a broad field ranging from reconstructive surgery to aesthetic surgery. Facial cosmetic surgery can be broadly classified into two categories: surgery to rejuvenate the aging face, and surgery to harmonize facial features. Rejuvenation surgery is ideal for patients with early signs of aging. Another motivation may be that patients feel that their look does not match their emotional state: they look less “happy” or more “tired” than they feel. • Facelift • Neck Lift • Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) • Chin Liposuction • Brow Lift • Fat Transfer
The second major type of facial surgery is corrective facial plastic surgery to address facial features that may not be in balance with the face such as surgery for the nose and ears. These procedures are usually performed at a younger age and are focused on achieving a harmonious relationship of facial features. Achieving a facial balance can have profound effects on one’s personal outlook and sense of self.

The Important Decision The most important decision that a patient will make in deciding to have facial plastic surgery is who their surgeon will be. The quality of the result is most dependent on the expertise of the surgeon, but also the patient’s tissues, lifestyle, and adherence to pre- and post-operative instructions.
