When the patient wants facial cosmetic surgery

American Family Physician
C M Johnson, J R Anderson


Cosmetic facial surgery can improve appearance but it cannot make everyone beautiful (or handsome) or solve all problems. The patient must be well motivated and must comprehend the limitations of the procedures. Procedures useful in providing a more youthful appearance include blepharoplasty, browlift and face-lift. Sometimes all three are indicated. Chemical face peeling is used for correction of fine skin lines.
