What Is Facial Contouring and What Does It Offer?

Facial Contour

Facial contouring is one of the fastest growing non-invasive and non-surgical facial reconfiguration techniques that’s currently taking the plastic surgery industry by storm. It’s a highly effective method of enhancing facial features and reducing the appearance of the signs of aging. As you age, your skin naturally loses elasticity causing it to sag and develop wrinkles. This is most noticeable in the face, which is why more and more people are proactively seeking preventative and reactionary treatments to help improve their appearances.

Different Types of Facial Contouring Techniques

There are a number of different types of facial contouring techniques and treatments that target specific parts of the face to help patients look their absolute best. The type of facial surgery you choose to have depends largely on parts of your face that need to be improved and what your personal goals are.

Facial Implants

Facial implants offer a wide range of contouring, uplifting, and redefining options across all areas of the face including the lips, jaw line, eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and chin. The point of undergoing this type of facial augmentation is to tighten, tone, and in some cases remove sagging skin and reduce the signs of aging by render a smoother and more voluminous result.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a procedure that involves extracting fat cells from other parts of the body such as the buttocks, thighs, belly and then liquefying so that it can be injected in other parts of the body that need more volume (usually the face).

Facial Liposuction

Facial liposuction is a minimally invasive form of facial surgery in which excess fat cells are removed from parts of your face that could use more definition.

Lip Contouring

This procedure is perfect for patients who are intent on contouring or plumping up the appearance of their lips using simple and non-invasive treatments. Qualified facial plastic surgeons use dermal filler injections containing hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally produced by the body anyway, to add volume to thin, shapeless, and pale lips.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation or implants are especially popular among male patients because they’re an excellent way to add more definition to your jaw line, making it look much stronger and more masculine. For women, adding volume to the chin can help create a softer and more feminine look.

Cheek Augmentation

The nature of cheek augmentation procedureshas endured a lot of changes over the years. Many plastic surgeons tend to stay away from putting in cheek implants these days because the facial muscles are constantly evolving and strengthening over time. Modern procedures involve simply reshaping or remodeling the existing cheek structure or injecting or removing fat cells that are taken directly from the body.

Ear Lobe Surgery

Ear lobe surgery, otherwise known as otoplasty, is a highly popular non-invasive procedure that involves pinning back and reshaping the ears so that they don’t protrude outward as much as they did before.

Neck and Brow Lift

For a lot of patients—women in particular—the neck and eyebrows are a major point of contention as they get older. These are the parts of the body that typically showcase the most prominent signs of aging including the formation of severe wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and deep brow lines thanks to years of making facial expressions. Fortunately, neck lifts and brow lifts are easy and minimally invasive procedures that can help alleviate these issues!
