Facial Procedures Guide by Dr. Brian Evans - Types of Facial Rejuvenation Surgery

Just because you've had another birthday doesn't mean you necessarily feel older, and you certainly don't have to look it. Today there are many facial procedures that diminish or even eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.

Many can be combined and performed simultaneously to address a variety of complaints. If you're tired of looking tired, here are some of the most popular and long-lasting cosmetic facial procedures performed by Dr. Brian Evans to increase the confidence of patients and to improve their appearance by performing procedures of a high standard.

Face Lift

The traditional, full face lift is still one of the most effective and long-lasting facial procedures for reducing and eliminating deep wrinkles and sagging facial skin. The average age of patients for this type of facial is fifty and above. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will create incisions behind the ear and in the hairline for maximum scar camouflage.

The skin will then be peeled back and the muscles beneath will be tightened, if necessary. The skin will then be pulled tightly back into place and any excess will be trimmed. To get maximum results, your surgeon may suggest some liposuction of the neck or some injectables to target areas that a facelift is unable to correct. The results of a facelift can last up to ten years and can take off ten years from your appearance.

Brow Lift

This facial procedure is for those who are unhappy with deep furrows or frown lines that have developed across the forehead. These expression lines not only age you, but can make your entire appearance look harsh and stern.

Brow lifts can often be performed via endoscopy, which uses nearly invisible incisions (less scarring) around the hairline. A camera with a light is then inserted into the body, allowing the surgeon to tighten the underlying muscles and tissue via a television screen. The result is not only a smooth, youthful forehead, but a shorter recovery period than more invasive surgical methods.

Laser Resurfacing

Facial procedures are not only for those wanting to correct deep wrinkles. Laser resurfacing can address a variety of facial conditions including fine lines, uneven skin tone, sun damage, age spots, acne and subsequent scarring, and can improve texture.

There are many different types of lasers that are used, but they all perform the same general function. Light pulses break up old skin cells, removing blemishes and bringing fresh, undamaged skin cells to the surface. The results of this facial procedure can last for many years.

Eyelid Surgery

This cosmetic procedure is often performed simultaneously with face and brow lifts. Eyelid surgery can address a variety of complaints including heavy eyelids, loose or excess skin, dark circles, droopiness, and a puffy appearance. The procedure can be performed on either the lower or upper eyelid or both, depending on the desired results.

Incisions will be made along the crease of the upper eyelid and the lower lash line. Skin and fat are removed or repositioned to create the desired appearance. Tissues and muscles may also be tightened. Eyelid surgery can transform your face from tired to energetic and youthful.
