What Is a Facial Plastic Surgeon?
Facial plastic surgery offers cosmetic or reconstructive medical care to the face, head, and neck. It is a specialty within the field of otolaryngology, also known as ear, nose, and throat medicine. Facial plastic surgery usually reshapes specific parts of the head and neck, including the nose, ears, chin, cheekbones, and neck or jawline.
There are many possible reasons that a person would seek facial plastic surgery. Some want to reverse signs of aging, like jowls, wrinkles, and skin and muscle laxity. Others desire treatment to re-proportion their facial features. Still, others wish to reconstruct their appearance in the wake of disease or trauma or to fix congenital birth defects such as cleft lips, cleft palates, and hemangiomas.
