Facial Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery is extremely common in the United States. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 15.6 million cosmetic procedures (minimally invasive and reconstructive) are conducted every year. Many of those procedures include those that target the face (facial plastic surgery).
The most popular facial plastic surgery procedures performed in 2014 were the following:
- Botox injections
- Eyelid surgery
- Facial chemical peels
- Laceration repair
- Laser hair removal
- Maxillofacial surgery
- Nose reshaping
- Scar revision
- Soft tissue fillers
- Tumor removal
Our plastic surgeons conduct facial plastic surgery on a regular basis. No matter which type of facial plastic surgery is taking place – whether it’s an invasive, inpatient procedure or an outpatient, minimally invasive surgery, Hunt Regional surgeons perform the procedures with the upmost care. They work side-by-side with our anesthesiologists who have specialized training in the latest techniques for ambulatory and minor surgery, pediatric anesthesia, and post-operative pain management.
The types of facial plastic surgery performed at our Greenville, TX hospital include the following:
As a natural part of aging, the skin and soft tissues tend to lose elasticity and may start to sag. This can happen to the eyelids, too. Eyelid surgery is one type of treatment for sagging eyelids, and it removes the excess skin from the upper eyelids.
Facial skin cancer surgery
When skin cancer is diagnosed on the face, this type of surgery can be used to remove all or parts of the malignant area. Facial plastic surgeons may work with oncologists or even ENT doctors to determine the best possible method for treatment before performing the surgery, so as much of the cancer can be removed as possible.
Eye muscle surgery
Eye muscle problems can cause a misalignment of the eyes, such as crossed eyes. To correct the problem, facial plastic surgeons may turn to eye muscle surgery. During the procedure, the eye muscles are tightened or loosened – whatever is needed to correct the issue.
Facial plastic surgery, especially for those who have never gone through such a procedure, can be intimidating. No matter which cosmetic surgery you or your loved one may be preparing for, remember that our experienced team of medical professionals is here for you.
