Facial reconstruction involves reshaping head and neck structures, usually the nose, ears, chin, and cheekbones. You can have this treatment to reconstruct your face after an injury, disease, congenital disability, or reverse aging signs. Facial reconstruction Scottsdale can also eliminate contour irregularities or change your facial features to appear in proportion with others. The treatment can be performed by plastic, dermatology, or oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Facial reconstruction aims at improving your appearance and restoring normal function. There are many procedures for facial reconstruction depending on your defect, including
A brow lift is a cosmetic treatment that raises your brows to improve your forehead and the area around your eyes. The procedure involves your surgeon surgically raising your forehead, brow skin, and soft tissue. You can get a brow lift if your brows are sagging or uneven. Your surgeon can do a brow lift alone or combine it with other treatments like eyelid surgery or a facelift.
Rhinoplasty changes the size or shape of your nose. You can get surgery to improve breathing, correct congenital disabilities, or repair injury deformities. The upper portion of your nose is bone, while the lower part is cartilage. Rhinoplasty can reconstruct bone, cartilage, skin, or all. Your surgeon customizes your treatment based on other facial features, the skin on your nose, and your desired results.
A facelift is a cosmetic technique that reduces facial sagging skin to give you a younger look. It can also smoothen skin folds on your cheeks and jawline. The treatment involves your specialist pulling back a skin flap on each side of your face. The specialist will alter the tissues below your skin and remove the excess skin, giving you a more youthful shape. A facelift can reduce sagging, remove excess skin at your lower jawline and eliminate excess fat in your neck.
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, removes excess skin from your eyelids. It can address one or both eyelids. As you age, your eyelids stretch, the supporting muscles weaken, and excess fat and skin can accumulate in your eyelids. Fat and skin accumulation can cause your eyebrows and upper lids to droop and eye bag formation. Eyelid surgery eliminates excess fat and skin from your eyelids.
Otoplasty changes the size, shape, and position of your ears. You can have the treatment if you are concerned about how far your ears stick out from your head. Otoplasty can also correct misshapen ears resulting from injuries or congenital disabilities. You can have Otoplasty at any age after your years have reached their full size. Typically surgeons perform surgery on both ears to optimize symmetry.
