What is Facial Surgery?
A facial surgery refers to any procedure relating to the face or neck to reverse signs of aging or to solve other cosmetic issues. Some procedures can resolve physical disfigurements or deformities apparent at birth or caused by disease or injury. Most facial surgeries target a specific area though many patients combine multiple procedures to produce their desired result.
Some of the most common facial surgeries include the following:

The Best Candidates for a Facial Surgery
Patients who are unsatisfied with their appearance, affected by facial deformities or in the case of a rhinoplasty having breathing trouble, are all successful candidates for facial surgery. Past medical history and daily habits are important considerations, which is why New Jersey Plastic Surgery® will schedule a consultation to ensure that your needs can be met. It is important that individuals considering facial surgery have realistic expectations and a healthy outlook regarding their procedure.
Vectra® 3D Imaging System
Vectra® 3D imaging is a state-of-the-art system that captures three-dimensional photographs that show extreme detail of the desired body area being photographed. The system can then create a 3D digital replication of the expected result after surgery. This allows patients to preview various surgical options and select the procedure that best suits their desired goal.
Planning Your Facial Surgery
When planning your facial surgery, you will work with your surgeon one on one during a scheduled consultation. If applicable, you may undergo facial imaging using the Vectra® 3D imaging system. This technology photographs your facial structure and delivers imaging that will depict the possible result of your procedure.
Your surgeon will discuss with you the possible techniques of your procedure and what you can expect regarding recovery time. During your consultation, your surgeon will address your questions and concerns and discuss your past medical history.
Preparing For Your Facial Surgery
You will be provided with a list of guidelines for the weeks and days leading up to your surgery. If you smoke, it will be recommended that you stop doing so for several weeks before your procedure. Your surgeon may also direct you to stop taking certain medications and/or vitamins.
Local or general anesthesia will be used for your procedure, making it important to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery. You may also need a friend or family member to care for you for a few days following your facial surgery.
Types of Anesthesia
The type of anesthesia used during your facial surgery will be determined in conjunction with the type procedure being performed. Your surgeon may use a mild sedative and a local anesthesia for your procedure so that you will not feel any pain. You may elect for general anesthesia as an option, which will allow you to sleep during the procedure.
