If you’re considering plastic surgery to correct imperfections on your face, you may not know which procedure(s) are most suitable for achieving the improvements you desire. Rather than having you spend hours scouring the Internet, we’ve provided you with information about the most popular facial procedures in plastic surgery and what they can improve.

Facelift

While you may think this procedure focuses on the entire face, a facelift primarily improves the midface and neck.

A facelift effectively treats the following:

  • Deep creases below the eyelids

  • Jowls

  • Nasolabial folds (creases around the nose and mouth)

  • Sagging skin beneath the chin

  • Bands on the neck

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

An eyelid lift can be performed to improve the upper and lower eyelids by removing excess tissue and repositioning the eyelids.

An eyelid lift effectively treats the following:

  • Loose skin in the upper eyelids

  • Excess fat deposits in the eyelids

  • Bags beneath the eyelids

  • Wrinkles in the lower eyelids

Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)

Brow lift surgery improves the position of the eyebrows and mainly focuses on the forehead, including the forehead between the eyebrows and up to the frontal hairline.

A brow lift effectively treats the following:

  • Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead

  • Creases between the eyebrows (frown lines)

  • Sagging brows

  • A “tired” or “worn out” appearance

Injectables

Injectables like JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE® have become a popular option for patients who want youthful results without undergoing surgical procedures.

Injectables can effectively treat the following:

  • Sunken cheeks

  • Facial wrinkles and creases

  • Indented scars

  • Loss of fullness in the face

Neuromodulators

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular neuromodulator, and it temporarily injures the motor nerves in the facial or neck muscles that cause wrinkles or bands, giving temporary improvement. The nerve ultimately regenerates, usually in three to four months, so the wrinkles will eventually return. Long-term improvement may be realized with consistent treatments three or four times yearly.
