What Is Facial Surgery?

Procedures performed on a person’s face or neck fall into the category of facial surgery. Two types of facial surgery exist: cosmetic and reconstructive. Cosmetic surgery enhances the visual appearance of facial structures and features. Common procedures include facelifts, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation and more. Reconstructive surgery is performed on patients who either have congenital conditions or have experienced trauma.

Facial Surgery Benefits

  • Look younger
  • Feel more confident
  • Get fast results
  • Enjoy long-lasting or permanent improvements

Who Makes A Good Candidate For Facial Surgery?

Facial surgery may be a good option if you need reconstructive surgery, have always wanted to change something about the way you look or simply are not aging as well as you would like. As with any surgical procedure, patients with reasonable expectations and positive attitudes tend to achieve the best results.

Types of Facial Surgery Offered

At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers the following types of facial plastic surgery:

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eye lift, eliminates droopy eyelids and bags under your eyes to help you look better rested. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, depending upon your specific needs. Many people do not realize that eye lifts can do more than subtly freshen-up their looks. Eyelid surgery is also an effective way to improve your sight if sagging upper eyelids are blocking your vision.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, what many people call a nose job, is the surgery of choice if you who want to change the shape of your nose. In addition to aesthetic improvements, rhinoplasty can improve your breathing and address medical issues such as a deviated septum. Because every patient’s face is unique, great care is taken during each and every procedure to ensure proper facial balance and a natural look.

Facelift

Rhytidectomy, another name for a facelift, tightens sagging skin, restores facial volume and gives you an overall healthy appearance. The procedure has become increasingly popular, even among younger patients who are just starting to see the signs of aging. Because many different facelift techniques are available, procedures are highly customized based on each patient’s facial structure and goals.

Mini Facelift

A mini facelift tightens minor sagging around your cheeks, jawline and neck. Unlike a full facelift, a mini facelift does not change the area around your forehead or eyes. The procedure does not require as many incisions as a full facelift and has a shorter recovery time.

Neck Lift

A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, firms up your jawline and neck areas. If you are bothered by a double chin or hanging jowls, you can get sleek, defined features with this procedure. Neck lifts can be done as a stand-alone procedure, but are also often done at the same time as full or mini facelifts.

Brow Lift

Brow lifts, or forehead lifts, smooth the unwanted wrinkles on your forehead and elevate your eyebrows to help restore a youthful appearance. Because the effects are long lasting, some patients prefer the surgery over Botox® or other injectable fillers.

Otoplasty

Otoplasty, known by many as ear pinning, moves protruding ears closer to your head so they are no longer prominent. Otoplasty is typically performed on children around the ages of five or six whose ears have come close to reaching full size, but adults are also candidates for the surgery.

Cheek Implants

Cheek implants, also known as cheek augmentation, malar augmentation or submalar augmentation, add volume to your face giving you a younger look. Cheek implants are also often used by plastic surgeons to balance out asymmetrical facial features.

Chin Implant

Chin augmentation, also referred to as mentoplasty, enhances your profile by reshaping your jaw line.  During the procedure, an implant is used to contour your chin. Chin augmentation is often, but not always, performed at the same time as rhinoplasty to effectively balance out facial features.

Facial Liposuction

Fat deposits around your cheeks, neck and jaw line, make you a good candidate for facial liposuction.

Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation makes your lips appear fuller. If you want more definition, either because you never had much to begin with or have experienced a decrease in volume, you may benefit from this procedure. Depending upon your specific needs, implants, lasers or injections may be used.

Contoura

A unique plastic surgery procedure in Jacksonville, the process of Contoura uses tissues from one part of the body and transfers those cells to the face to replenish the tissue that has been degraded or lost over time and minimizes bruising and swelling.

Is Facial Surgery Covered By Insurance?

Reconstructive surgery due to congenital conditions or accidents may be covered by your health insurance. Cosmetic procedures are typically not covered because they are considered elective. The best way to determine your coverage is by contacting your insurance company. Be sure to provide your insurance representative with detailed information about your procedure and why you are having it.
