What are the objectives of facial surgery?

Facial surgery basically we could say that pursues a couple of objectives. One of them would be the facial rejuvenation already in people of a certain age and another type of objective would be to harmonize a series of defects at the level of the face such as surgery of the ears or surgery of the nose basically.

Why is it becoming more frequent in men?

Cosmetic surgery has always been related to beauty and it is with women. In recent times, this is changing quite a bit for several reasons. Men increasingly access surgery treatments and aesthetic medicine both for personal aspects of taking more care of the image, as well as for work aspects also depending on society. All this makes the fight against facial aging equalized between men and women.



What are the most common treatments?

We could differentiate at younger ages two types of treatment, one of them would be otoplasty which is a surgery that consists of correcting, by a series of points, the detached ears and the other is the rhinoplasty that is the surgery of the nose, ordered to fix and harmonize a series of deviations from it.

In more mature ages, at surgery level, we could talk about the blepharoplasty, which is the correction of the eyelid bags, likewise the bags of the eyelids and a little extra skin is eliminated.

As medical treatments, basically we could differentiate infiltrations with botox to correct wrinkles of expression, lipotransference of fat and infiltrations of platelet-rich plasma.

Do you have differences regarding female facial surgery?

When aesthetic surgeries are performed on men, technically interventions are performed in the same way. Simply what you want to achieve is more natural, which forces the surgeon to act perhaps with greater precision looking for this subtlety at the level of nuances to achieve naturalness, which is what the patient always requires us.
