The chin, cheekbones, and jawlines might become asymmetrical. Fortunately, you can reverse these changes through facial contouring surgery. This cosmetic procedure focuses on improving your facial outline and appearance. It restores your youthful look by making your face more symmetrical. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon can help determine if facial contouring surgery is appropriate for you.

Types of Facial Contouring Surgery

There are numerous types of facial contouring procedures. These surgical treatments focus on various parts of your facial outline, including the cheekbones, jawlines, and chin. Some facial contouring techniques focus on the neck, brow, lips, and ears.

An OMS surgeon can determine what part of your face requires more balance, sculpting, and elasticity. Your surgeon might use facial or cheek implants, fat grafts, and transplanted tissue to boost your facial outline and appearance. They may also employ techniques like bone and muscle reduction and facelifts to achieve the desired outcome.

Who Is the Right Candidate for Facial Contouring Surgery?

Any healthy man or woman who is self-conscious about their looks can be an ideal candidate for face contouring surgery. However, patients must have realistic expectations and a positive outlook to be eligible for facial contouring. Preferably, they should have adequate fat deposits and not be allergic to filler ingredients. This procedure is not suitable for pregnant or nursing mothers, patients under medication, and smokers since it can delay healing or cause complications.

Benefits of Facial Contouring Surgery

Facial contouring surgery can be beneficial to anyone seeking to reverse the impact of aging or improve their facial appearance. Recovery takes two to three weeks, allowing you to resume your schedule within no time. Most importantly, it has minimal side effects, given that your OMS surgeon will conduct various tests to determine your eligibility for the procedure.
