10 misconceptions about facial plastic surgery

As with many medical procedures, a culture of myth appears to have grown about facial plastic surgery. These ‘statements’ – untrue as they are, become ‘facts’ and might deter people from going ahead with a procedure. Herein, we deal with some of the most common…

1. Facial plastic surgery is simply a vanity project – well, there is no great harm in wanting to feel good about your appearance, but most facial plastic surgery procedures tackle areas considered unattractive. Yes, this does often help with increasing self-esteem, and there is nothing wrong with that.

2. Undergoing these processes will always make me feel better – no respected plastic surgeon would ever countenance completing procedures as a ‘cure’ for emotional or psychological problems.

3. No one will recognize me with my ‘new’ face. Plastic surgery does not change one’s essence; it does correct deformities and help with signs of ageing such as wrinkles and excess neck skin. I always tell my patients, good plastic surgery is the plastic surgery that no one knows about. When procedures look natural, no one will know you had work done, but you will simply look better – like the best version of you.

4. Facial plastic surgery eliminates all deep facial scars – sadly, such scars are highly unlikely to ever completely disappear. Surgery can make them less obtrusive, and help by removing indentations.

5. Plastic surgery works for everyone – no, it doesn’t. Patients need to be willing to accept the temporary side-effects, such as swelling and discomfort. It is vital to talk to a recognized expert and to follow their advice, and to be realistic about what will be achieved.

6. Facial plastic surgery speeds up the ageing process – usually said by those who haven’t undergone such procedures. After surgery, your skin will simply age as it always would have.

7. Once I reach retirement age, plastic surgery isn’t any use – as in most areas of life today, people are increasingly realizing that age barriers are largely irrelevant. Obviously, your general level of health will be a consideration, but many people benefit from such surgery well into their eighties.

8. Once I start having facelifts, I’ll have to keep having them – this is simply not true. As mentioned earlier, your skin continues to age, and some patients do choose to have further surgery. But, this is a lifestyle choice and no more.

9. Facial plastic surgery is hugely expensive – this is often a thought among people who consider the procedure as part of a ‘Beverley Hills’ lifestyle. Cost depends on the procedure to be undertaken, and many patients do find it costs less than they imagined it would – it simply pays to find out!

10. And finally – that plastic surgery involves the use of plastic materials! Irrespective of the name, this surgery simply works with the tissue and bone already present in the patient’s face. The derivation of the name is from the Greek that means to mold or shape – hence the name far precedes the use of synthetic plastics seen today!

Having debunked some myths, the conclusion is clear: facial plastic surgery is simply a procedure worth considering, and talking to an experienced professional is the best course of action to take.

What is Kybella?

If you find yourself wondering, “What is Kybella?” you are not alone. More attention has been on this revolutionary injectable in the past couples months due to its growing popularity. Kybella provides an effective, safe, non-surgical solution for those suffering from submental fullness (also known as a double chin) and can have a major impact in the way you feel about yourself and your appearance. Learn a bit more about Kybella treatments and decide whether it is an appropriate solution for you.

The basics

Also known as ATX 101, Kybella is a clinically proven and FDA approved treatment for submental fullness also known as fat under the chin. While its effects can drastically improve the contours of a patient’s face, the process is minimally invasive, using a series of injections. Kybella is safe, effective, and is clinically proven through more than 20 clinical studies and satisfied patients all over the world. The Wise Center for Plastic Surgery was one of the first practices in the New Jersey area to use the product and Dr. Wise is featured as an Expert Injector of Kybella.

What makes Kybella so safe and effective is that it is specifically created to target fat cells in the chin and neck area. A man-made formulation of the naturally occurring deoxycholic acid, it mimics the natural function of this protein by breaking down and absorbing fats. It is growing in popularity because fat under the chin is traditionally known as a problem area for many people of varying ages and body types.

How is it used?

Kybella is injected under the chin between two and six sessions spaced at least one month apart. Over time the series of treatments will reduce submental fat, in a gradual process that can be monitored by Dr. Wise and the patient together. The majority of people who try the drug decided to go for the full six treatments, but this choice can change from person to person. By scheduling a complimentary consultation with Dr. Wise, you can customize a treatment plan to get the desired results. Dr. Wise oversees the administering of Kybella over the series of treatments to determine how to safely and effectively optimize your results. Before taking advantage of Kybella’s benefits, it is best to speak with a Dr. Wise to understand if it is the right solution for you.

The benefits

Now that we know what Kybella is and how it works, the next step is understanding all of the unique benefits it provides, and why so many people are turning to it today:

  • Unlike many cosmetic facial procedures, Kybella treatment is permanent
  • Since it is minimally invasive, it requires little downtime and can have patients back in action soon after treatment.
  • Treatments only take 15 to 20 minutes, which makes them easier to manage than other routine cosmetic visits like a haircut or teeth cleaning.
  • Side effects are rare and not serious. For those that do experience side effects, they are limited to minor pain, swelling, and redness and occur most commonly after the first treatment.
  • Since it is an injectable, it does not require any surgery and won’t leave any visible scars or other marks after the procedure is complete.

How to get started

If you think Kybella treatments are the right solution for your submental fullness, the best way to get started is to contact the offices of Dr. Wise, the leading expert in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the New Jersey and New York area. You can schedule an initial consultation to find out more about Kybella and how it can help you as well as gain further insight into how the process works.

Due to Dr. Wise’s reputation, many of our patients do come from out of state and e-mailing photos is a simple way to get a preliminary review without the cost and time needed to travel to us. To get started with a preliminary evaluation, you may e-mail photos of your face from the front and side profile to our Patient Concierge at jenna@drwise.com. Usually in just a few days, Dr. Wise will reply with his recommendation as well as his thoughts on your particular case.

Three ways to subtract years from your face

Everyone ages. Unfortunately, with aging come wrinkles, discoloration, and lines in your skin – especially on the face. Many factors, like stress and diet, can contribute to these lines and wrinkles, but they can never be fully prevented. There are many options and procedures that help reduce wrinkles and make your face look younger, As expected, different procedures are best suited for certain ages, needs, and parts of the face. Three examples of popular and widely-used solutions for facial plastic surgeons are Botox Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and facelift surgery.

1. Botox Cosmetic

Botox Cosmetic has been used since 2002 (when it was approved by the FDA) as a way to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking signals between nerves and muscles, which causes muscles under the skin to stop contracting, thereby reducing wrinkles. A Botox injection procedure only takes about 10 minutes, and costs vary depending on whether a doctor charges for the area of your face or for individual units of the injection. Botox works best for fixing wrinkles between your eyebrows and on your forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The results of Botox can be seen in about two to four days, and it requires almost no healing time. A Botox injection generally lasts three to six months, at which time you will need another injection.

2. Dermal fillers

Where Botox relaxes muscles under wrinkles, dermal fillers actually fill in wrinkles. Dermal fillers work best to hide signs of aging, and may delay time before needing a surgical facelift but frequently complement surgical procedures. They can also be used to plump lips, and fill in lines lower on one’s face (such as on the cheeks and mouth), which Botox may not always be suited for. Dermal fillers can be a good option for those who are just beginning to notice lines and wrinkles, have finer wrinkles, or have lines around the lip and mouth area. The most common type of dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid, while synthetic, autologous, and collagen fillers are also available. Typically, dermal fillers can last for about four to 12 months, and there are new products available such as BellaFill, that lasts for up to 5 years. Sometimes, patients find that they need more than one initial injection before getting satisfactory results, and then return once or twice a year for additional injections.

3. Facelift surgery

During a facelift surgical procedure, a doctor creates incisions on the sides of the face in order to reposition the deep structures of the face and neck back so that it rests more youthfully across the face, reducing lines and wrinkles. The healing time after this procedure tends to a few weeks. Though it varies greatly, facelifts usually last 10 to 15 years, making them one of the most permanent options for reducing wrinkles and making your face look younger.

The needle or the knife?

If you’ve considered cosmetic treatment for your face, you’ve likely come across two popular solutions: fillers and facelifts. These two options are not exactly the same, and each has its own pros and cons. It is best to consult with a specialist about what procedure may be right for you, but you should familiarize yourself on some of the key differences.

Fillers

What it’s used for

Fillers do as their name implies – fill in. They target areas of the skin that have depressed lines, and work by adding volume and filling in these areas. They are used most often for plumping lips and the area around them, wrinkles on cheeks, and hallow areas and wrinkles under eyes.

Who it’s right for

Fillers are recommended for people under 50, who have wrinkles and depressions in their skin, but no noticeable sagging or severe skin elasticity. They can also be used as a way to delay the need for facelift surgery.

Procedure

Most fillers are injected via needle into the target area, a procedure that takes no more than an hour, on average. This procedure is quick and non-invasive, which is why many people prefer it. There is little to no recovery time associated with filler treatment.

Price

While fillers tend to cost much less than a facelift surgery, the amount of maintenance involved must also be factored into the price of fillers. After a number of touch-ups over time, fillers usually end up costing about the same as a facelift surgery.

Maintenance

Fillers tend to last for about six months to two years, or, in the case of some synthetic fillers, up to five years. Overall, this means much more maintenance than a surgical facelift.

Facelift surgery

What it’s used for

A facelift lifts the skin of the neck and face and tightens it. Unlike fillers, it corrects sagging and other signs of aging, not just wrinkles.

Who it’s right for

Facelifts are ideal for people who have some skin sagging, skin elasticity, and drooping jowls. While fillers can fill in wrinkles, they can do nothing for excess skin that droops on the face and neck.

Procedure

Facelifts are a surgery, which require some form of anesthesia, two to four hours of procedure, and some recovery time. Afterwards, most patients feel minimal pain, but the doctor will likely prescribe something to take. There will be some swelling for the first few days. In some cases, a surgeon may bandage the area to minimize swelling.

Maintenance

Facelift surgery requires much less maintenance than fillers. Typically, the only maintenance you may need is a filler later on, as skin continues to sag and wrinkle with age.

Despite these differences, both procedures can help fight signs of aging. Fillers can be a great way to delay facelift surgery or touch up in the years following it, and facelift surgery can help correct more severe sagging and wrinkling. If you want to turn back the clock and get the skin you had years ago, speak to a surgeon to determine what method best fits your goals and lifestyle.

Beauty, Subjectivity, and Choices

With a well experienced plastic surgeon, you will look more than ten years younger. Once the facial plastic surgery is done, your face will be wrapped with bandages to reduce bruising and swelling. As the face is adapting to its new structure, your head will be kept elevated.  The time it takes to recover from the surgery will depend on the techniques which were used and the amount of extensive correction that was done. Your surgeon will give you specific instruction on what you need to do so you can recover effectively and safely.

Wrinkles and fine lines which are the biggest indicators of aging. They may appear anywhere in the face especially on the corners of your mouth and below your eyelids. They will be greatly diminished with the facial plastic surgery. In the surgery the wrinkles will be pulled till they are smooth.

Enhancing Your Facial Appearance With the Best Surgical Procedure

Planning Your Facial Plastic Surgery

The first step in making a qualified decision for the best surgical procedure to help restore facial function or appearance is to make sure you select a plastic surgeon who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, (ASPS) or the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (AAFPRS). These are surgeons who have met very vigorous compliance standards in their field. Be sure your scheduled facial plastic surgery will take place in an accredited, state licensed, and/or a Medicare-certified surgical facility.

If you are having problems with a facial scar, talk with your surgeon in detail about how he expects to minimize your scars’ visibility. Does he suggest creating texture and matched skin tone that will be consistent with your surrounding skin? Scar revisions can include different procedures like contractures, excision, laser resurfacing, Z-plasty, tissue expansion, or skin grafts. If you do not understand the surgical terms your surgeon is discussing, be sure you ask questions.

Children Who Need Facial Plastic Surgery 

A child may need surgery to restore function and create a more normal appearance to correct abnormal development of the lip or palate. A cleft lip surgery is called a cheiloschisis, to repair a birth defect that separated the upper lip. Repairing the palate is called a palatoschisis surgical process that repairs the separation in the roof of the mouth. These surgeries will improve the child’s ability to eat food, breathe, and hear properly, as well as restore a more normal appearance.

Types of Facial Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery for an eyelid tuck or blepharoplasty can repair sagging eyelids that may be causing impaired vision. An eyelid surgical procedure for improving functional eyelid problems, or to improve eyelid appearance will remove and tighten excess skin, repair bags under the eyes, lift drooping lower lids, remove folds created by loose or sagging skin around the eyes.

Another facial plastic surgery that is common is a surgical lift of the eyebrows, called a forehead lift. Good candidates for a brow lift surgery are physically healthy, do not smoke, and have a positive outlook and realistic goals. This surgery reduces horizontally running wrinkles across the forehead and over the bridge of the nose. This facial plastic surgery is designed to raise sagging eyebrows that sometimes hood the upper eyelids. The procedure will reduce frown wrinkles and returns brows to an alert and more youthful position.

The rhytidectomy or facelift is a facial plastic surgery solution to improve visible effects of aging in the face and neck areas. The repair procedure will improve the following:

  • fat that has fallen or disappeared
  • sagging in the middle of the face
  • loose skin and fatty deposits under the chin and jawline can give a person the appearance of a double chin
  • loose skin tone in the lower face creates jowls 
  • deep creases extending from the either side of the nose to the mouth
  • deep creases below the lower eyelids

Preparation

In preparation for facial surgery, your surgeon might have you schedule labs tests, a medical evaluation, take certain prescribed medications, adjust your current prescribed medications, and quit smoking. Your surgeon will also require that you stop taking all herbal supplements, aspirin, and anti-inflammatory drugs that could cause increased risk of bleeding. 

Follow the special instructions for the night before and the morning of your scheduled facial plastic surgery. Read all details regarding anesthesia before signing the surgery agreement. Understand instructions for the post-operative care and follow-up treatment care.

Facial Plastic Surgery For Men

We like to look good, men and women alike. With the rise in facial plastic surgery as a great way to improve your appearance, plastic surgery is not just for women anymore.

There is a growing trend in facial plastic surgery for men. Looking more attractive, exuding vitality, having a youthful appearance in business and social situations are all motivating factors for men to consider facial plastic surgery.

As with any procedure, it is a good idea to do your homework. Make sure the surgeon you choose is certified. Referrals and taking a look at before/after photos of a surgeon’s past work all contribute to making an informed choice.

Common Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Chin Surgery

Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, reshapes your chin in one of two ways. One common way, and one of the best kept secrets as it is not easily detectable, is enhancement with an implant. Another method is to reduce an overly prominent chin by reduction surgery on the bone.

In conjunction with a rhinoplasty, commonly called a “nose job”, a chin enhancement/reduction balances the proportions in the face, as the size of the chin may enlarge or shrink the perception of the size of the nose.

To achieve a balance of harmony between the nose and the chin, chin surgery aids in providing a harmonious balance to your facial features and helps you feel better about the way you look.

Face lifts

We know as you age, men and women alike, there is facial sagging, laugh lines, forehead creases and drooping around the jaw. Gravity knows no gender. Male face lifts will add vitality to your appearance. It’s perfectly acceptable to consider a face lift, if you are a man, to refresh your appearance and look younger.

A skilled surgeon can take years off your appearance by minimizing droopiness and tightening skin, while you remain natural-looking. By re-positioning facial muscles and tightening facial skin, a surgeon can achieve a natural look with a minimally invasive procedure.

Overall Considerations for Men

While men and women plastic surgery procedures are almost identical, there are some gender differences for men to consider.

Typically, men have thicker skin than women. Since male skin has a richer blood supply, men can minimize any bleeding risks by taking a few precautions before surgery.

Talk to your doctor and take the advice you are given. Certain over-the-counter medications can increase bleeding risk. Take your doctor’s advice on what to avoid and follow it. Tell your surgeon all of the medications you are taking, including supplements and vitamins. Let your doctor decide what you should continue to take before and after surgery.

Women can cover parts of their face and neck with hair, where a man’s hairstyle, usually shorter, does not. Women wear face makeup where typically men don’t. Scar placement is a consideration as men don’t have access to longer hair and makeup for concealment. Talk to your doctor about these concerns. Men have the edge where they can grow facial hair to helps hide scars. Planning with your surgeon where to place incisions strategically will be a great help post-surgery.

Making Your Decision

Make an informed and researched choice. Ask questions, any doctor you would want to use is more than willing to address all your questions and concerns regarding facial plastic surgery. Consider combining procedures to save money and recovery time. It may be better to combine chin surgery and a rhinoplasty so the look you get is in harmony. Choose a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with experience in the procedures you are considering.

Getting To Know About Facial Plastic Surgery and the Brow Lift Procedure

Among facial plastic surgery procedures, the brow lift or forehead lift is one of the most common surgeries. Usually, the procedure is performed after the patient is past middle age, or between the ages of 40 and 70 years old. As people age, they start to lose the elasticity in their skin that was prevalent during their younger years. As a result, both facial fat and muscle begin to lose tone. When this occurs, deep wrinkles can appear across the forehead or between the eyebrows. When vertical lines appear between the eyebrows, the resulting scowl can make the patient look disgruntled or unhappy when, in fact, the opposite may be true. Sagging can cause one to look tired and sad or older than their age too.

What a Brow Lift Can Do

Because a furrowed and sagging  brow can make one look visibly older, a brow lift assists in reversing the effect by getting rid of excess skin and raising and tightening the tissue beneath the brow. As a result, the facial plastic surgery patient who chooses this procedure regains a youthful, more revitalized look.

Two Types of Brow Lift Procedures

Today, women and men, who are considering facial plastic surgery, can select from two basic kinds of brow lift procedures. These procedures are known as an open brow lift, which is a traditional  facial plastic surgery procedure, and a newer, less invasive procedure known as an endoscopic brow lift.

The Coronal Brow Lift

Even though it is more invasive, many facial plastic surgery patients still opt for an open brow lift because of its dramatic results. The procedure, also called a coronal brow lift, is helpful for people who exhibit a marked drooping of the brow as well as the upper eyelid. During this facial plastic surgery procedure, the skin on the forehead is lifted and smoothed after an incision is made, which starts at one ear, crosses the forehead area and ends next to the other ear. Using this approach eliminates the deep furrows in the brow while pulling the skin taut.

The Less-invasive Endoscopic Brow Lift

The other less invasive procedure, the endoscopic brow lift, is recommended for patients who exhibit wrinkling and some drooping in the area of the brow. Patients who wish to experience less downtime but still receive notable results often choose this procedure. During the surgery, an endoscope is used for making very small incisions at specific points along the brow.

A Flexible Surgical Aid

The flexible and thin tube of the machine is connected to a camera,which is used to guide the process on a mounted display. Using the endoscope results in much smaller incisions and a reduced risk of infection. The incisions are easier to make as well.

What to Expect After a Brow Lift

After a conventional forehead lift is performed, expect to experience some mild discomfort, often which is managed with medicine. A headache sometimes is experienced as the anesthesia is wearing off. The head should be kept elevated to reduce any swelling. Itching may be experienced at the incision line as well.Swelling usually subsides after a week while itching typically takes about six months to fade. 

Other  Choices

Knowing what is involved in basic facial surgery procedures can assist you in determining what procedures you may want to undergo during a forehead lift or afterwards. For example, blepharoplasty is another name for an eyelid lift while rhinoplasty involves reshaping or re-defining the nose. The facelift procedure is another traditional surgery and may be combined with such procedures as a neck lift or the insertion of silicone facial implants.
