Facial cosmetic surgery is becoming more popular for both men and women trying to stay competitive in the work force. According to a national survey conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), 7.8 million Americans who believe that looking older is a disadvantage on the job will consider undergoing facial plastic surgery for professional reasons.
Among men and women, the procedures most contemplated are facelifts (20%), rhinoplasty (15%), laser resurfacing (11%), and eyelid surgery (11%). Facial plastic surgery may not be for everyone, but there are a variety of procedures that can rejuvenate an aging face.
Most people seeking a necklift or a facelift either want to reduce the advances of age, or seek to reverse the already present signs of aging.
Patients who consider a facelift usually want to know how much improvement they can expect and how long it will last. If the operation is completed early in the aging process, a patient can anticipate a look that is refreshed, and less tired looking. A person who has waited longer can expect more dramatic results.
Many options are available in facial rejuvenation. These can be done either solely or in conjunction with other procedures to create a natural harmonious look including a facelift, necklift, fat grafting, Botox, Radiesse, Juvederm or Perlane filler injections.
If you are considering facial rejuvenation or cosmetic surgery, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all the options available for you.
