Facial Surgery Q & A

by Thomas McHugh, MD

Why Do People Have Facial Surgery?

People have facial surgeries for a variety of reasons, mostly due to unhappiness with a particular facial feature. Sometimes this is due to injury or disease, while other times it may be from the body’s natural aging process.

For instance, as you age, your skin naturally sags, and fat deposits gather under the skin. With facial surgery, these can easily be restored, reducing the signs of aging and giving you a rejuvenated look.

What Types of Facial Surgeries Are There?

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. McHugh offers a broad range of facial surgeries, including:

  • Facelifts
  • Forehead lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Brow lift
  • Ear surgery
  • Neck lift

Depending on your specific goals, Dr. McHugh may recommend pairing your facial surgery with other cosmetic procedures, such as laser skin rejuvenation, BotoxⓇ, or dermal fillers.

What Happens During A Facelift Surgery?

If you want to reduce the visible signs of aging skin, Dr. McHugh may recommend a facelift, or rhytidectomy. The procedure reduces the signs of aging, including deep creases and folds around your eyes, nose, and mouth.

By adding a neck lift, it also eliminates excess fat and skin under the neck, which creates the appearance of a double chin. That makes your face look thinner and more youthful.

After administering anesthesia, Dr. McHugh makes an incision, typically at the hairline or temples, and redistributes fat from the face, jowls, and neck, to restore volume to slack areas of your face. He may lift the muscles and deep tissues of your face before draping the skin over these new contours, trimming away any excess skin.

If he’s tightening skin along your neck, another incision under the chin may be needed.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that restores a youthful appearance around the eyes by lifting the eyelids. Dr. McHugh may recommend eyelid surgery if your upper eyelids droop or are hooded, or if you have extra skin or severe puffiness under your eyes.

During eyelid surgery, Dr. McHugh removes extra skin, fat, and muscle from around the eyes and eyelids.

If you’re unhappy with your facial features or want to reduce the signs of aging, schedule an appointment with an internationally-renowned plastic surgeon. Call Dr. McHugh’s office today or book your consultation easily online.

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift, medically referred to as a platsmaplasty, is actually a combination of several procedures performed to improve the appearance of your neck, including the elimination of excess fat (turkey waddle) and bands. Usually, an incision is made under the chin and/or behind the ears to gain access to the neck muscle responsible your flaws. Excess neck skin is trimmed, lifted into a better position, and then secured. Sometimes, liposuction is part of the overall procedure. Neck lifts may be performed on their own or in conjunction with facelifts
