Facial Plastic Surgery Treatments

Facial Plastic Surgery & Treatment Options

Facial plastic surgery is be important as our facial expressions allow us to interact and communicate with other people.

Unfortunately, our appearance has an impact on how others perceive us.

While some would like to improve certain parts of their face, others are born with facial abnormalities such as a birthmark, or other birth defects.

Fortunately, many conditions such as the effects of ageing, sun damage, or facial trauma can be corrected through procedures performed by a skilled surgeon.

Why should I consider facial plastic surgery?

Facial surgery is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery performed for both men and women in the UK.

It’s chosen for a variety of reasons including both aesthetics and functionality. It might be that you’re affected by premature lines, wrinkles and slack skin due to excessive sun exposure, smoking or major weight loss or that you’re naturally ageing.

You will have the choice to have your procedure undertaken at either the Nuffield Hospital in Plymouth or the Duchy Hospital in Truro.

Reconstructive facial plastic surgery

Reconstructive facial plastic surgery is performed for patients with conditions that may be present from birth, such as birthmarks on the face, cleft lip and palate, protruding ears, and a crooked smile, that also affect normal function.

Other conditions that are the result of accidents, trauma, burns, or previous surgery can also be corrected with this type of surgery. In addition, some reconstructive procedures are required to treat existing diseases like skin cancer.

Cosmetic facial plastic surgery

Cosmetic facial plastic surgery is there to enhance the visual appearance of your facial structure and features.

Common procedures include facelifts, eye lifts, rhinoplasty, eyebrow lift, ear surgery and procedures to correct facial wrinkles.

    • Rhinoplasty — Surgery of the outside and inside nose in which cartilage and bone are rebuilt and reshaped to improve the appearance and function of the nose
    • Blepharoplasty — Surgery of the upper and/or lower eyelids to improve the function (like drooping eyelids) and/or appearance of the eyes

    • Facial Reconstruction — Surgery to reconstruct defects in facial skin from prior surgery, injury, or disease, including reconstruction resulting from cancer surgery, scar revision, repair of prior facial trauma.

The best decision!

"Following several years putting up with ‘heavy eyelids’ I decided to have a blepharolasty... It’s the best decision I’ve made in ages! No more feeling tired from the sheer effort of just keeping my eyes open. I’m amazed at the overall improvement in my wellbeing and would recommend the procedure to anyone who is going through the same experience as I did, and that I look better as well is a pleasant added bonus!"

Opened eyes

"Thank you so much for opening my eyes."

Expert work

"Just a little note to say the upper blepharoplasty you performed on 2/12/20 has settled down beautifully and looks very good. It took 3 months to settle completely. It is symmetrical, no scarring and I no longer feel like I'm peering out from under an umbrella ! Again, very many thanks for your expert work."
