Your Ultimate Guide to Facial Rejuvenation

What Is Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation simply addresses any perceived imperfections on the face through treatments that may include surgical and/or non-surgical options. 

How to Choose Your Facial Procedures

An in-depth consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to understand what can be accomplished with facial rejuvenation. 

However, the first step is just looking into the mirror and noting any issues you’d like to address. 

Take a good look at your neck and face. Besides the issues caused by aging, do you have concerns about your nose, ears, or chin? 

Next, are you ready for surgery, or would you prefer to start with non-surgical facial treatments?

Plastic surgeons don’t recommend performing surgical and non-surgical treatments together, so prioritizing one or the other is a good idea. 

Remember that while less invasive, many non-surgical treatments are temporary. Be sure to ask your surgeon how long the results of each treatment are expected to last.

By knowing what your priorities are and bringing your questions to the surgeon at your consultation, they can better customize your treatment plan and help you achieve results that meet or exceed your goals.

5 Popular Facial Surgery Procedures

  1. Facelift surgery
  2. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
  3. Nose job
  4. Neck lift surgery
  5. Cosmetic ear surgery

You can usually combine two or more of these surgical procedures and have them performed simultaneously.

If you have sagging skin on your neck or jawline and have lost volume in your low to mid-face area, a facelift may be the way to go, as this inclusive procedure can address all of those areas at once. 

If you have concerns about eyelid drooping or under-eye bags as well, you may want to consider undergoing both a facelift and a blepharoplasty.

It is important to remember that facial plastic surgery procedures target the tightness of the skin and the underlying facial tissues. They have little to no effect on the texture and tone of your skin. These concerns are better addressed with non-surgical approaches.

5 Popular Non-surgical Treatments

  1. Injectables 
  2. Microneedling 
  3. RF treatments 
  4. Laser rejuvenation 
  5. Facials

Non-surgical procedures can reduce or eliminate wrinkles, tighten loose skin, restore lost facial volume, and resurface skin for a smoother, softer complexion. Unlike surgical treatments, non-surgical procedures are performed in-office and require little-to-no downtime. While you may experience some redness, tightness, or tenderness in the treatment areas, you will not have any incisions made.
