Nose job or rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of facial plastic surgery. It can correct problems with breathing, reduce the size of a large nose, provide symmetry to the two nostrils, etc. The procedure involves altering or reshaping your nose by moving your skin and soft tissues into different positions. This helps enhance the overall look of your nose. It is mainly done on people unhappy with the bump or angle of their nose, who wants to reduce the nose’s size, look more symmetrical, etc.
Chin augmentation or chin implants enhance the look of your face by reducing the appearance of a weak chin. Different chin implants are available, depending on what your surgeon believes will work best for you. Chin implants come in either round or square shapes and are usually made from synthetic materials like silicone, and that’s why they are called Silicone implants. One of the significant benefits of chin implants is that you can remove them anytime if you don’t like them, which means they are not permanent enhancements.
Ear surgery or Otoplasty is another common type of facial plastic surgery. It is carried out to reshape the ears and correct protruding ears, ear deformities, etc. Some teenagers who are insecure about their looks go for this surgery while it is also carried out on children whose ear sticks outside their head even after facing infancy issues. This surgery is usually done on children above the age of 5 and is very safe with minimal risks.
Eyelid surgery is also prevalent. You can use it to remove eye bags, drooping upper eyelids, etc. Once the surgeon raises the skin in your eyelids following incisions, it eliminates excess skin or fat deposits in the upper or lower eyelids of your eyes. The scars are barely visible after two weeks of the surgery.
A facelift is another popular form of facial plastic surgery. In this procedure, the skin and soft tissues around your face are moved into a new position to create a more youthful appearance. You can have it if you have lost elasticity in your skin due to aging, exposure to the sun, etc. A facelift is one of the most common and safe procedures of all plastic surgeries.
In summary, facial plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure that transforms the face and improves its appearance. It consists of different procedures such as rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, facelift, eyelid surgery, and Otoplasty.
