Blepharoplasty – Surgery on the eyelids facial plastic surgery. It is used for sagging or droopy eyeslids and bags beneath the eye. If you don’t correct it, you can look much older.
The upper eyelid is adjusted by making incisions along the lines of the eyes to minimize the appearance of the tiny scars. The extra skin, fat and muscle is removed. This is followed by stretching the remaining tissue, before it’s sutured into place. It is very similar to the upper lid procedure. The incision can be made either on the eyelash edge or the inside lower lid.
Mentoplasty: Chin Surgery. The chin can be altered in either a reduction or an augmentation. If you choose to have augmentation done, your incision can be inside of the mouth (lower lips) or under the cheek. To redefine the chin, a synthetic implant can be used after stretching some of the skin at the incision point. For a smaller chin, the same opening can be made. Bones are then either repositioned or sculptured. When the incision is on the outside of the chin, it will leave a very tiny and faded scar.
Otoplasty, Ear Surgery. As the operation is performed behind the ear, the incision will not be visible to anyone other than you. You can change the appearance of your ear by sculpting the cartilage in the shape that you desire and using sutures for it to stay put. You can remove the cartilage and skin. This is then stitched. The procedure can be performed on children as young at five, allowing them to eliminate their years of unwarranted self-consciousness.
The Nose Surgery. Incisions made for nose reconstruction are usually made within the nose. No visible scars result. Addition or removal of cartilage and bones is required to shape the nose. As soon as the surgeon is satisfied with the final shape of the nose, the skin over the bone or cartilage will be stretched and sewn. Splints are used to maintain the shape of the nose.
Now that you know what goes on behind-the scene, let’s look at the different types of plastic surgeries. After that, you will want to dive deeper into your type of surgery.
