Maintaining Realistic Expectations about Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and sagging skin are common reasons why many patients choose facial cosmetic procedures. Double board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), Dr. Fernando Burstein offers surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to address sagging skin and smooth wrinkles and lines. While patients mostly choose surgery to address aging, recent studies have shown that patients also choose cosmetic surgery to appear more attractive. Therefore, Dr. Burstein reminds patients to maintain realistic expectations about results and takes the time to discuss patients’ aesthetic goals and needs individually during consultations.facial cosmetic surgery atlanta ga

Prior to choosing a procedure, Dr. Burstein meets with each patient in-person to discuss areas of concern and establish expectations, view before and after photos, and choose procedures that can achieve their aesthetic goals. He also reminds patients to maintain realistic goals based on their unique aesthetics rather than choosing photos or images demonstrating ideal facial shapes and features. It is important to formulate a treatment plan to address a patient’s own unique facial structure.

Procedures such as facelift, necklift, and brow lift surgery, eliminate excess skin and tighten areas to smooth wrinkles. Patients can target specific areas of the face such as the forehead and brow, the jaw and chin area, or mid-face. Other cosmetic procedures such as rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and blepharoplasty address specific facial features. Rhinoplasty and otoplasty are performed to provide a more aesthetic balance to areas of the face while blepharoplasty eliminates hanging eyelid skin and under-eye bags that contribute to the signs of aging.

Non-surgical procedures such as chemical peels, injectables, and Sciton® Erbium laser resurfacing are also available to address skin imperfections such as acne, scars, minor to moderate wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture. For patients with sagging skin, Ultherapy® is a non-invasive technology treatment to firm and tighten skin on the face and neck. Many patients choose these minimally invasive procedures as there is little to no downtime.
