Facial Plastic Surgery Questions
Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC

The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery located in Reston, Virginia, specializes in facial surgery, including facelift, brow lift, rhinoplasty and neck sculpting for Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC.

What can face lift surgery do for me?

Many people pursue facial plastic surgery as they age in order to eliminate lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, droopy eyelids and other obvious signs of aging. Still others are not happy with the face they were born with and choose to have aspects of their look altered. For example, many facial surgery patients seek to alter the shape of their nose, making it smaller or more symmetrical. In other cases, facial plastic surgery is used to correct birth defects or irregularities caused by injury or accidents.

If there is anything about your face that you are unhappy with, facial surgery may help restore a more youthful look or correct a facial feature that causes you to be self-conscious. A consultation with the board certified cosmetic surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery can help you decide if plastic surgery of the face is right for you. We serve patients in Virginia, Maryland and the Washington, D.C. area.

What are some common facial plastic surgery procedures?

Some common facial plastic surgery procedures include:

  • Facelift, neck lift or cheeklift – eliminates lines, wrinkles and excess skin in the face and/or neck
  • Rhinoplasty – reshapes the nose
  • Blepharoplasty – focuses on the eyelids, correcting droopiness and sagging
  • Mouth and lip surgery – corrects various changes that occur in the mouth area due to aging

Many of these procedures can be combined for even more dramatic results and to address multiple issues that you would like to have corrected.

Who is a good candidate for facial surgery?

If you are unhappy with the look of your face, candidates for facial surgery are those with:

  • Sagging facial skin
  • Droopy eyes or under eye bags
  • Frown lines
  • Constant angry or tired appearance
  • Fat deposit on face or neck

Many of these procedures can be done at the same time to achieve a total facial rejuvenation. Because our board-certified doctors do about three times as many facelifts a year as the average plastic surgeon, you are sure to receive the best possible care and achieve natural-looking results.

What are the risks of facial surgery and face lift surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, some risks are associated with facial surgery and facelift surgery:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Numbness at the incision site, usually temporary
  • Infection
  • Post-operative bleeding

Many of these risks are minimized by closely adhering to post-operative instructions from the Austin-Weston surgical team. Taking good care of yourself after surgery and ensuring you get sufficient rest will help you have a speedy and uneventful recovery.
