Combining Facial Cosmetic Procedures
Patients may visit Dr. Batniji with an issue regarding a specific facial feature without realizing that one or more areas of the face may contribute to their dissatisfaction. Often times, a person is unable to recognize what would equate to facial harmony. Some individuals will seek the improvement of one feature, but their expectations of change may exceed the limitations of their facial anatomy. Below are suggestions of common dually-performed plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures that complement one another.
Rhinoplasty and Mentoplasty
One such instance of a successful dually-performed plastic surgery procedure is the rhinoplasty (nose job) performed alongside a mentoplasty (chin augmentation). As two of the most prominent of the facial features, the nose and chin are uniquely linked. If the chin is too small, it may make a large nose appear even larger and vice versa. The alterations to each feature create balance in the profile and front views of the face. When facial planes exceed or lack aesthetic depth, these corrections can create a more satisfactory look.
Facelift and Neck Liposuction or Neck Lift
A facelift is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures because of its ability to dramatically revive an aging face. While the skin of the face is tightened and excess tissue is trimmed away, this procedure does not always address the area under the chin or neck. When aging occurs in the face, often these two areas are affected as well. A neck liposuction procedure can ensure that excess fat does not distort the newly revived face. In addition to fat removal, a neck lift can ensure long-term results by tightening underlying muscles and removing excess skin, creating the most permanent structural changes.
Skin Resurfacing and Dermal Injections
Skin resurfacing techniques effectively enhance the quality of facial skin at a low cost and often with minimal downtime. Dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing treatments treat acne breakouts and scars, uneven texture and pigment, fine lines and wrinkles, and promote the healthy undergrowth to quickly become the epidermis. Different areas of the face age at varying paces, which is why some patients may opt to receive a refinishing skin procedure on one area of the face, while simultaneously requesting to plump and correct separate areas. Commonly, the lips and under-eye area require plumping while the forehead, corners of the eyes, cheeks and chin benefit from dermabrasion.
