Different kinds of facial plastic surgery
Three common kinds of facial plastic surgery are rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty and face lifts. Millions of people in the United States have had these procedures done. In some cases, rhinoplasties and blepharoplasties are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.
There are other kinds of facial plastic surgery, ushc as lip augmentation and the lip lift. Other procedures are otoplasty, neck lifts, malar pad lifts and facial implants. Otoplasty corrects excess ear protrusion, and is given to small children before they enter school. A neck lift removes loose skin and fat from under the jaw. A malar pad lift elevates the pads of fat under the skin of the cheeks. Facial implants can improve the shape of the cheeks and chin. While some of these procedures have to be be done under general anesthesia and need several weeks of recovery time afterward, others can be performed in the office of the surgeon and need only a few days of recovery time.
