Face Cosmetic Surgery - Medical Malpractice
Men and women alike are undergoing surgery to improve the look of their faces. While there are laser procedures and other noninvasive procedures to get rid of wrinkles, some people fail those options and choose to go ahead with invasive facial cosmetic surgery. There are multiple choices in facial plastic surgery that can fix wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead, around the eye, in the nasal region, above or below the mouth or on the cheeks. Most people don't have all procedures done at the same time but a few do, especially if they are traveling a long distance to have their facial cosmetic procedures.
A person can choose to have a brow lift, which rids the brow area of longitudinal wrinkles and smoothes out the area. The procedure is relatively simple. The doctor makes an incision in the hairline just inside the edge of the hair. The skin is pulled up and the wrinkles smoothed out. When the wrinkles seem adequately reduced, the excess skin is cut away and the remaining skin is sutured to the new hairline. The major side effects are haematoma formation, infection, bruising and excessive bleeding but these are rare complications. In some cases, the person can have a result they are not happy with, such as having a constantly surprised look on their face because of pulling the skin too tight.
The brow lift is often done along with a blepharoplasty. A blepharoplasty is also called an eye lift. It gets rid of the bags around the eyes on the upper and lower lids. Two separate surgeries are done in a blepharoplasty: a lower lid blepharoplasty and an upper lid blepharoplasty. In an upper lid blepharoplasty, an incision is made in the natural crease of the eye. The skin is pulled together to get rid of wrinkles and bags and the excess skin is trimmed away. Tiny sutures are placed to close the wound and the doctor moves onto the lower lid. In a lower lid blepharoplasty, the incision is made along the eyelash line. The skin is pulled up and trimmed off to make sure there are no wrinkles and that the skin is smooth and young-appearing. Sutures are placed to hold the skin in place. Bruising, bleeding, infection, temporary blurry vision and haematoma formation are all possible side effects of having this procedure.
The nose can be changed via a rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty can change the size and shape of the nose and is done in both young and old patients. You can have a rhinoplasty just to have a differently shaped nose even if you are not suffering from the affects of old age. Doctors go through the nasal passages or up under the upper lip to perform the surgery on the septum and cartilage of the nose. The results are not always perfect and repeat surgeries may need to be performed to perfect the shape of the nose.
The chin can be fixed via a mentoplasty. This is usually done in order to change the shape of the chin and not for wrinkles although it can be done for wrinkles. Chin implants can be put in or excess chin can be trimmed away making for a smaller chin.
A face lift only treats wrinkles and sagging of the cheeks. An incision is made along the hairline of the temporal region of the scalp and down along the front and back of the ears. The skin is lifted from the underlying tissue and muscles are tightened beneath the skin. Fat is added or subtracted as necessary. Then the skin is pulled back toward the temporal region and excess skin is removed. The skin is then sutured to the hairline, making for a very minimal scar.
All facial plastic surgeries have risks but they are not very great. You need to have a consultation with a facial plastic or cosmetic surgeon in order to see what they can do for you and what cannot be accomplished through simply having facial cosmetic surgery.LEGAL HELPLINE: ☎ 855 804 7125
