Cosmetic facial procedures near me

The face represents the fundamental element in the characterization of the individual and can be the object of aesthetic modification in order to correct constitutional facial dysmorphisms (structural surgery) or to rectify the signs of aging (anti-aging surgery). The skin, a fragile outer layer that is constantly faced with external and internal factors, bears the imprints of time and the damaging consequences of sun exposure. Therefore, it is a true representation of the experiences, challenges, and hardships that one encounters throughout their lifetime.

This often leads to the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, pronounced physiological folds, accumulation of fatty tissue in the chin area and flaccidity of the neck skin. These changes are physiological during the aging process, but if they are excessive, they can be corrected with advanced surgical techniques.

The face is one of the most common areas of the body that patients request to change because they are unhappy with their appearance for example, aquiline nose, prominent ears, or elusive chin. Cosmetic procedure is able to give harmony, balance and brightness to the face while respecting its natural proportions.

Most common facial cosmetic procedures

Best cosmetic facial procedures:

Face Lift

This is the main cosmetic surgery procedure for the contrast of facial aging. The technique involves making incisions in the marginal areas of the face along the hairline, in the scalp and behind the ears and removing excess skin. The residual scars from the facelift are usually thin, straight and not very visible. Facelift surgery is often associated with other procedures such as blepharoplasty to correct eyelid ptosis and eye bags and laser peeling to rejuvenate the skin surface.

If the sagging of the facial skin is partial, an operation to correct the specific part of the face (facelift, temporal lift, neck lift and cheek lift) can be performed.

Face lipofilling

Face lipofilling, also called fat transfer or fat re-injection, is a surgical procedure that allows you to fill areas with your own body fat instead of using hyaluronic acid fillers or implants. It is a very effective procedure because it is not very invasive and produces natural results.

Facial cosmetic surgery procedures: Blepharoplasty

The aging of the eye area skin leads to a progressive sagging of the eyelids and the accumulation of periorbital fat, eye bags. The blepharoplasty procedure consists of removing and repairing droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle and fat.

As we grow older, our eyelids naturally begin to stretch and the muscles that hold them in place start to weaken. This is often due to an accumulation of excess skin and small fatty protrusions in the eyelids. To address this issue, skilled surgeons make precise incisions along the natural crease of the upper eyelid and just below the lash line of the lower eyelid.

The elimination of the imperfection « brightens » the eyes, weighed down by the sagging skin.

Cosmetic facial procedures: Rhinoplasty

This is one of the most sought after operations in all of cosmetic surgery. It is a procedure that reshapes the profile and shape of the nose through incisions exclusively inside the nostrils. With this so-called « closed » technique, no visible scars remain. Rhinoplasty has a great influence on the harmony of the face because the change in the shape and size of the nose allows the modification of the proportions related to the entire face.

Cosmetic surgery facial procedures: Genioplasty

Genioplasty is an appropriate procedure to rebalance the proportions of the face in case the chin is too prominent or elusive. The area of interest is obtained through an incision inside the oral mucosa and therefore leaves no scar of any kind. For the overly prominent chin, the cosmetic surgeon removes part of the bone. As for the elusive chin, special silicone prosthesis can be inserted or high density hyaluronic acid can be infiltrated. In the latter case, the resolution of the task is temporary.

Otoplasty: Aesthetic surgery for protruding ears

Otoplasty is a procedure recommended for patients suffering from floppy ears due to insufficient folds in the ear cartilage. This defect is also present in pediatric age and can be performed on children as young as 4 years old. An incision is made into the area behind the ear and the cartilage is incised and folded.

Face cosmetic procedure: how to manage scars

Plastic surgery is a highly sought-after procedure for enhancing one’s facial and bodily appearance, as well as correcting any genetic or acquired dysmorphia. It’s worth noting that surgery does leave behind scars, so it’s essential to carefully consider their length and placement before making the decision to undergo the operation.

Removing a slight imperfection that leaves obvious scars is certainly a choice that should not be made.

In face cosmetic procedure, this technique is of utmost importance. Fortunately, in most face procedures, scars are completely (or almost completely) hidden. The most important face procedure in terms of scarring is the facelift. The relevant ones are located in the middle of the hairline, in the front crease of the ears and in the back area along the hairline. They are usually not aesthetically significant.

Some cosmetic facial procedures do not « leave » obvious marks because of minimal incisions for surgical instrument entry (e.g., liposuction cannula). When it is not possible to hide the incisions from view, the laser used in many procedures instead of the scalpel makes a valuable contribution. The laser’s clean and precise cut allows for better healing and finer edges.

Non-surgical cosmetic facial procedures

Some cosmetic surgery facial procedures can be non-surgical facial cosmetic procedures.

Mini-invasive techniques for facial contouring are:

Microsurgical tightening

This technique is very effective in obtaining a lifting effect without cutting the skin but rather by producing very small skin incisions that lead to scarring and which can enhance the skin tone.


Hyaluronic acid infiltrations are used to shape the face by increasing the volume of the lips, increasing the protrusion of the cheekbones and filling in superficial wrinkles. This filler is the safest and most commonly used facial treatment in the world. It does not require allergy testing and has no major side effects.

Laser Peeling

This is a laser technique for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle removal that involves the evaporation of the superficial layers of the skin to allow the cell to regenerate. These scalpel-free facial surgery techniques provide effective improvement of certain imperfections.
