Facial Plastic Surgery

Overview

Face aesthetics are important to women of all ages.

Younger women tend to seek plastic surgery of the face which changes their basic appearance. Examples of this include
rhinoplasty (nose surgery), chin implants and cheek implants. Each of these procedures refines, reduces, or enhances a facial feature, bringing it into harmony with the rest of the face. These procedures change your basic appearance, and are therefore most appropriate to younger women who have an easier time adjusting to such changes than older women.

Older women are more likely to seek plastic surgery to reverse some of the effects of aging…loose skin, jowls, extra eyelids, and wrinkles. These inevitable effects of time can cause women to look unhappy, mad, tired, sad, or serious. Not to mention old. Most women who choose to fight these unwelcome changes say they feel younger than they look and that they just want to look as young as they feel. These women are often left with a younger appearance following afacelift, lip lift,
eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), or brow lift (forehead lift). Keep in mind that a primary goal of plastic surgery is to make you look like a younger version of yourself…not like someone else. So, be sure to ask your plastic surgeon about his or her techniques and whether they change basic appearance.

Women of all ages are interested in skin care, lip augmentation, permanent make-up, Neck Lipo, wrinkle treatments, chemical peels, Botox®, laser, and Thermage®. These are all minor procedures which can enhance your appearance with little down-time. Skin care can give you smoother softer brighter skin. Lip augmentation can offer you the full lips you have always wanted. Permanent make-up (when performed well) can help you get through the day looking your best all day long. Wrinkle treatments, laser, chemical peels, Botox, and Thermage are directed at smoothing your skin, tightening your skin, reducing wrinkles, of eliminating acne or spider veins. Those of you who live in the greater Cincinnati area will be interested to know that all of these procedures are available through Kathy Jones Skin Care, a professional skin care center which is located within the Loftus Plastic Surgery Center.

As with anything, there are always a few renegades. And, yes, plastic surgery has something to offer you… tongue splitting. And, when you decide that you no longer want your tongue split, plastic surgery can reverse that, too.

So, plastic surgery of the face can offer many things to many people. As with all plastic surgery, be sure to do your homework when evaluating any procedure or plastic surgeon. Hopefully, you will find the pages on this site to be a helpful guide on your quest.
