Top 4 Most Popular Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures In The US

Facial Plastic Surgery has become a way for many people to change their appearance for many reasons. For some it may be to regain confidence, for others it may be for health reasons. Whatever the reason, there are a number of procedures that women and even men can choose from to help themselves feel more confident with the skin they live in. 


Facial Plastic Surgery is growing in popularity every year in the United States. From procedures that only women would take part of, it has expanded into something common for everyone to take part in. Celebrities have become very open about procedures that they have taken part in and even the internet has been helping a lot more people become more educated on what Facial Plastic Surgery is all about. The benefits are endless but it usually falls down to a specific three.


The very first one is to remove loose skin and wrinkles that have been caused by aging. This can vary from drooping of the eyelids, and even loosening of the jaw line. Because the skin loses its elasticity, as we get older, this is something that can be inevitable for a lot of us. The effects of it can make us look a lot older and even more tired than we really are. 


Not only does our skin lose elasticity but it also can lose the muscle tone that you have. For many people that will cause loss of collagen and also result in sagging of the skin. Being able to tighten these muscles on the face may help in regaining more function and movement of them.


Of course, everyone wants to feel confident in the skin that they’re in. With facial plastic surgery, this may be possible. It’s so important for many people to look younger not only for their own personal benefits but it may also benefit your career and social life. When you think you look good, you open up more and you may even be able to enjoy life more.


Top Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures

With that being said, there are so many different facial plastic surgery procedures that we’ve even lost count. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures in the United States for you. This will help you become more educated and may even help you in taking the right path if it’s something you’re interested in.


Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)


Our eyelids have extremely delicate skin so according to the American Board Of Cosmetic Surgery, it’s no surprise that the signs of aging begin to appear around the eyes. So much emotion is expressed through our eyes, which means that for many people having younger looking eyes is very important.


This is the type of surgery that may be able to repair droopy eyelids and even remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. Because of aging, excess fat may gather under the eyes and even on the eyelid. For some people this can make it harder to see and give off an older appearance. That is when they look for Blepharoplasty to get the job done. 


When you go to get a Blepharoplasty procedure, the good candidates will usually be the ones who know exactly what they want. This is a procedure that many people look for to change appearance so it’s important to know what your goals are and speak about them with your surgeon. 


This surgery is usually good for about 5-7 years. While you will still age, it’s good to keep in mind that while this is a rather permanent procedure, the effects of aging may still hit. To make sure that the results last as long as possible and that you look your best, make sure to follow your surgeon’s instructions and advice for any aftercare that you need to do.




Aging can create a big loss of youth in many people. This can transfer to the neck as the skin sags. There are instances where the neck doesn’t match the face area and that is when a neck lift can be performed.


An increasing number of people are requesting neck lifts as a part of their facial plastic surgery procedure. That’s because, if done right, it can improve the appearance and help turn back the time clock. Tightening that skin is something that dieting and even weight loss can’t fix. That is why many people look for surgery to get it fixed.


During your consultation, you’ll go over exactly what you want and any concerns you have with your surgeon. It’s important that you express everything you need to so that your surgeon can have a better idea of what you want and can provide the best results for you.


After a neck lift, you should expect some bruising but that’s completely normal. A couple of weeks after your surgery is when you may see the full results. In the meantime, it’s important that you protect your skin from the sun and your incision site.




Aging doesn’t have to mean leaving behind your youthful looks. As we get older our skin loses elasticity. This may cause wrinkles and even some sagging. It is said that facelifts help to turn back the clock and bring confidence back to patients that need it. Even though sagging skin is a natural part of the aging process, a facelift can help regain confidence and give off a younger appearance overall.


This is when a surgeon makes incisions behind the hairline and around the front of the ear to take out excess skin. This will help tighten the overall look of the face and provide improvement for those that have issues with their confidence. While there are many people that take part in facial fillers, a facelift is a more permanent solution to aging according to Insider. That is why it’s becoming more popular.


Brow Lift


A very noticeable part of our face is our eyebrows. During the aging process, this is also something that may sadly change. Because the skin that our eyebrows are attached to may begin to sag, this can give off a very low arch. Sometimes it may even overlap with the eyelids and that can cause discomfort for some people. A brow lift with Dr. Yeilding will be able to provide a more natural and less invasive procedure for those that want a lift.


Another huge thing that our eyebrows are a part of is our emotion. A sagging brow can give the constant look of tiredness and even distress. When taking part in a brow lift, it will help some patients get a more refreshed appearance that accentuates their face a lot more. They may even notice that people find them more approachable because they no longer look angry or concerned.

The Right Candidates


Let’s dive in deeper on what makes the right candidate for cosmetic surgery. At some point in everyone’s lives we are all good candidates for facial plastic surgery. The important thing is trying to figure out exactly when that is. Making sure you’re doing it at the right time can make your experience even better.


While one of the main goals of facial plastic surgery is to provide an improvement in appearance and confidence, it’s important to understand that it shouldn’t be the only thing pushing you to get it. There are a couple of other things you should keep in mind because plastic surgery is a type of surgery after all. With any surgery you need to understand everything that comes with it so that you can get the most from it.


One of the biggest questions that pop up when someone is thinking of getting plastic surgery is if they are too young or too old. According to Smith Cosmetic Surgery, plastic surgery is becoming a more popular subject for younger people as a way to benefit from it earlier on. Because of this, there are many surgeons who have performed surgeries on people as young as 20 years old. When it comes to being older, there also isn’t a reason why someone shouldn’t have the look that they have dreamed of. This will bring us to our second inquiry.


When undergoing surgery you should be prepared for the physical as well as the mental toll that it can take on you. Before undergoing any type of treatment you should ensure that you’re ready for the journey. This will help make the process more comforting for you. This can mean making sure that you fully understand what the procedure entails, ask the right questions, and even just understand that while the recovery can be long and difficult, you can enjoy the results later on.


Another great tip is to listen to your doctor. They know best when it comes to giving you the best experience and results. The time that is required for you to heal depends on the cosmetic procedure and even how your body reacts to the procedure. Taking the right steps to recovery and even pre-surgery can make all the difference.
