Choosing to have facial plastic surgery is personal. This is a decision you should make for yourself and not for anyone else, even if they are paying for it. If you have cosmetic concerns you believe could be addressed with cosmetic surgery, an experienced plastic surgeon is here to provide all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Several different types of plastic surgery techniques can address concerns with asymmetry, previous injuries, and visible signs of aging. Call Dr. Stutman to learn more about facial plastic surgery in Fountain Hills.
A Personalized Approach to Facial Surgery
During your consultation with Dr. Stutman, you will undergo an initial physical examination that involves taking measurements of your facial features. Dr. Stutman uses this information to determine what procedures to recommend. At our Fountain Hills office, we offer a variety of facial plastic surgery options that can result in a more youthful appearance and an improved balance across your features.
Our collagen production naturally reduces with age, leading to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. In a mini-facelift, small incisions are made under the hairline so Dr. Stutman can reduce the appearance of excess skin in the lower half of your cheeks and mouth.
During a mid-facelift, Dr. Stutman will address the midsection by removing excess tissue to lift the cheeks and eliminate sagging. A jawline rejuvenation is often accompanied by liposuction to allow your surgeon to contour and reshape your jawline. A cutaneous lift focuses on the lower half of your face using incisions around the hairline and ears. Excess skin is removed, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Eye Area Procedures
During a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift, excess tissue is removed from around the eyes. This gives you a brighter and more alert appearance.
A brow lift smooths the skin on your forehead and raises your eyebrows. This can sometimes improve the look of sagging skin over your eyelids.
An autologous facial fat graft can help lessen the appearance of volume loss that can occur under your eyes and in your cheeks as you age.
Torn earlobe repair is an option for men and women who may have experienced a traumatic tear to the earlobe. The repair is generally best done immediately after the tear to reduce complications and promote faster healing.
What to Expect During Your Recovery
Before undergoing plastic surgery, you must prepare for your recovery, which may involve taking some time off work. Dr. Stutman will give you instructions on how to care for your incisions while at home. It is crucial to follow these instructions carefully to reduce your risk of infection and improve your results. The time you need for rest and recovery varies depending on the type of facial plastic surgery procedure.
After any type of surgery, you will need somebody to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours. After anesthesia, you can feel dizzy and disoriented, so your support person can help you during this time to avoid a fall that could damage your surgical results.
It is helpful to fill all your prescriptions and purchase any supplies you will need to care for your incisions before surgery. Stock your cupboards with healthy snacks and foods that are easy to make during your first week. Dr. Stutman will tell you when you can wash your face, return to work, or resume daily activities depending on the facial plastic surgery procedure you had at our Fountain Hills location.
