Three facial rejuvenation procedures have made the list of the top five plastic surgery procedures performed in 2016. The list, produced by industry organization the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is compiled of data gathered from board-certified plastic surgeons and produced annually. Rhinoplasty (nose surgery), blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), and facelift all made the top five last year, indicating that facial rejuvenation remains something of interest to both men and women as we age.
A Closer Look
Knowing that these procedures are popular is interesting. Knowing why can help you better gauge if they could be useful to you. If you are at all unhappy with your facial appearance, board-certified Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata welcomes an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your areas of concern – and to help you determine which facial rejuvenation options are best for your needs.
Rhinoplasty, which came in at number three on the 2016 list of most popular plastic surgery procedures, is an ideal way to reshape the nose. With nose surgery, Dr. Fata can address both functional and aesthetic issues to produce a look that is complementary to other facial features. In the process, rhinoplasty can correct septum deviation and other issues that can impact proper breathing.
Blepharoplasty, which came in at number four, is used to remove puffy skin from below the eyes and lift sagging upper lids to restore a more alert and awake appearance. With blepharoplasty, our Indiana plastic surgeon can also help restore vision obstructed by drooping lids, giving eyelid lift functional benefits as well. During your initial consultation Dr. Fata can discuss what you might realistically achieve with this procedure alone or in combination with forehead lift, which is used to lift sagging eyebrows and smooth deep creases in between the eyes.
Facelift, edging out tummy tuck for the number five spot in 2016, is an incredibly effective way to eliminate double chin, jowls, turkey waddle, and sagging skin along the lower face. Dr. Fata uses hairline incisions for facelift procedures, helping guard against visible scaring to allow for optimal results. It is important to remember that a facelift does not address wrinkles and may need to be combined with other procedures to produce a fully rejuvenated appearance.
Facial plastic surgery procedures are designed to target specific areas of concern. If there are several areas of your face that you are unhappy with, combining procedures is often the most effective way to achieve desirable results. When you come to our Indianapolis plastic surgery office for your initial consultation, Dr. Fata will listen to your concerns and assess all of your problem areas to help you decide if a single procedure or a combination will best meet your needs. This may include nonsurgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers as well – depending on your unique needs and specific areas of concern.
