“Getting under the knife for a facial surgery is a major decision that should never be taken lightly or out of impulse. There are certain things you should consider to make sure that you are making the right decision, whether you need to undergo a surgery for aesthetic or medical reasons:, Says Dr. Debraj Shome, one of the best facial plastic surgeons and CEO of www.MediAngels.com.
Know your options. There are numerous types of surgical procedures available for your specific case. Many facial aesthetic procedures focus on facial rejuvenation, although not all of them are centered on this surgical aspect. Other procedures are designed to fix misalignments or reshape certain aspects of the face and make them more aesthetically pleasing, whether or not the deformity is related to natural aging, an injury, or some congenital condition. The most common forms of facial surgeries are face and neck lifts, eyelid lifts, rhinoplasty, brow lifts, mid face lifts, facial fat grafting, and facial resurfacing. There is also a wide range of non-surgical facial rejuvenation options for those who don't want significant downtime and interruption of their regular life, such as light chemical peels, fillers, and botox.
The kind of procedure you choose should depend on the result you want to achieve, your actual needs, as well as the amount of recovery time you will need after the fact. It is best to discuss all your options as well as the risks and gains of each with your surgeon right from your initial consultation. When deciding to push through with facial plastic surgery, choose a surgeon that will customize your treatment and design the surgery around your needs and expectations.
Know your motivations. It is always important that you know your motivations and expectations when getting any form of surgery. Facial surgery is, more often than not, permanent. This is why it is absolutely important that you are certain about what you want to get out of the procedure. Always clarify whether or not the results of your chosen procedure are permanent and know about its implications as the years go by. Natural aging may still have an effect on your previous surgical results, so make sure to have a conversation with your surgeon about these possibilities. Talk about risk of complications, side effects, and recovery requirements, if any.
Finally, make sure that you are financially set to have facial surgery. These kinds of procedures can often be costly and rates may vary from one facility to another. Know your options and make sure you are in a comfortable position to afford such a procedure.
