Facial surgery refers to a variety of cosmetic procedures that are designed to improve the appearance of the face or neck. Some facial surgeries are done to correct deformities or disfigurements that may be caused by genetics, injury, trauma or disease. Others may be performed simply for the purpose of restoring one’s youthful appearance and self-esteem. For many people, facial surgery is like getting a new lease on life, a second opportunity to look and feel more youthful. Patients who are unhappy with their facial appearance due to facial deformities, signs of aging, injury or other issues may benefit from facial surgery. Facial surgery is safe for adults who enjoy overall good health and whose expectations regarding the outcomes of plastic surgery are reasonable.
