What is Facial Surgery?
Facial plastic surgery encompasses cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to correct and improve specific features of the face. The procedures correct everything from facial wrinkles and sagging skin to recontouring or restructuring features such as the nose and chin.
Benefits of Facial Plastic Surgery
In addition to correcting and improving your facial appearance, it offers the following benefits:
- Younger appearance
- More self-confidence
- Motivation to be active
Who is a Good Candidate for Facial Surgery?
Facial plastic surgery is ideal for anyone who has significant signs of aging that does not respond to minimal and non-invasive MedSpa treatments, as well as for anyone who has suffered trauma to a specific area of the face or has a congenital deformity in a specific area of the face.
How Do I Prepare for My Facial Plastic Surgery?
Preparation for facial plastic surgery is based on the area of the face to be treated. During your consultation with Dr. Core, we provide you with detailed instructions to follow in preparation for your surgery. The list consists of directions prior to surgery, anything you should avoid and steps to follow to plan for your recovery.
What to Expect After My Facial Surgery Procedure
The recovery from facial plastic surgery depends on the procedure; however, with any of them, you can expect to take some downtime. There is some swelling and bruising around the areas of treatment, so it is important to allow time to heal. Additionally, you may have to follow up with your plastic surgeon to remove bandages and check on the healing process.
When Will I See the Results from Facial Plastic Surgery?
The results of facial plastic surgery typically take some time to become noticeable as the area heals. During this time, swelling and bruising diminish, and incisions heal and fade. Typically, over the course of a few weeks or months, the results become fully noticeable.
How Much Does Facial Plastic Surgery Cost in Birmingham?
The cost of facial plastic surgery is based on the specific surgery as well as whether multiple areas are to be treated. During your consultation, we can go over the costs with you along with payment and financing options. If the surgery is considered medically necessary, your insurance plan may provide some coverage. We can also help you determine if your plan does provide coverage. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards in addition to offering financing through CareCredit®.
