Facial Contouring (Facial Sculpting)
Facial contouring or facial sculpting, which is another name used for this procedure, is a way in which you can change the contours of the face as well as making parts of your face smaller and creating emphasis on the areas you want to
show off the most. This is another form of elective plastic surgery and is usually used to help create harmony and balance within your face.
Most surgeons do not take surgical procedures under general anesthetic lightly so firstly the individual will go through a CT imaging scanner that will produce pictures of the bone and soft tissue of the face. From this, the surgeon can
discuss with the individual what issues they have and how they can resolve them.
The most common issues with the face can include; the nose, the cheekbones, the chin, forehead, lip and cheek fat. Facial contouring is a general term for all of these plastic surgeries in order to achieve an ideal shaped face.
Facial contouring can be done using implants in various areas of the face and can even be achieved using fat removal and reducing the bone by trimming down.
Facial contouring begins by finding a plastic surgeon to complete a range of surgeries under one general anesthetic. This can be classed as being much safer than having a set of continuous surgeries as this opens the individual up to
complications with the general anesthetic. Whether the individual chooses to have chin implants and facial liposuction, these can be discussed and even though these anatomical structures are located in different areas of the face, the
surgeon will be able to use equipment to reduce the amount of scaring and incisions made to the face.
The need to be perfect has increased so much that not only women feel that it is necessary to have the best features, but men also feel the need to live up to high expectations as well. The outcome of facial contouring surgery is what
makes the surgery so ingenious.
Why have Facial Contouring Surgery?
One reason why women may choose to undergo facial contour surgery is because they feel they would like a smaller, softer, more feminine look. On the other hand, if a man feels that their face looks too feminine, facial contouring can
help achieve a more masculine and chiseled look. Facial contouring can also be used with individuals who are in the process of moving from one sexuality to another. This can be quite a serious procedure so the choice must be made with
all the information and research in tow.
Other candidates for facial contouring surgery tend to be members of the older generation who have looked in the mirror and do not see themselves looking back anymore. These individuals have lost their facial contouring due to the amount of saggy skin and wrinkles on their face.
Facial contouring is the result of a combination of procedures, scheduled by your surgeon to get the outcome you desire. Common contouring procedures combinations include rhinoplasty, rhytidectomy, otoplasty, mentoplasty andblepharoplasty. The surgeon will go through the risks associated with having this procedure however as the surgery can be a long one, the surgeon will ensure that the individual has no health issue which may be effected during the long anesthesia.
