The face is the first thing that people see when they look at us. Every face is different, with its own personality and history. Surgical or medical aesthetic facial procedures are often done to reduce a tired looking face, to brighten up the facial features and to improve people’s self-confidence.
2 components must be considered and addressed:
The facial structural component
This involves the structure and the facial architecture. With time, the facial structure changes: the face loses its fat, which allows the underlying skeleton to appear, giving it a wearily look.
In addition, between gravity and melting fat, the tissues tend to move down, changing the overall facial architecture.
Plastic facial surgery will then reshape the facial architecture:
- Lifting to improve the facial contours
- Lipofilling to correct facial fat loss
- Blepharoplasty to treat dropping eyelids or under eye pockets
- Rhinoplasty to change the nose’s shape
- Otoplasty for ear shaping
The dermal component
This is the skin overlying the facial fat and bone structures. This skin component can only be covered by specific aesthetic medicine. The goal is to improve the skin quality by correcting the skin imperfections and flaws. Injections and resurfacing treatments are used to improve skin quality:
- Hyaluronic acid which fills depressions, wrinkles and lines on the face
- Botulinum toxin for treating wrinkles like frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles
- Peelings which resurface the skin
- Mesotherapy with poly-vitamins or hyaluronic acid or PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
- Collagen laser stimulation
For optimal and natural results, it is necessary to conduct a thorough facial examination to completely analyze all the features and the possible results.
Note that often, aesthetic technics can be used as complementary manners in order to assure the best possible results.
