Aging tends to cause facial skin to sag and lose volume, not to mention reveal wrinkles and fine lines we would rather not have. Darrell L. Henderson, MD corrects these issues through facial plastic surgery on patients in Lafayette, LA, who want a younger, more vibrant appearance.

What is Facial Surgery?

The procedures correct a range of cosmetic concerns, such as sun damage, loose skin, wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds. These procedures may be recommended after an injury, such as bone fractures and tissue damage.

Facial Surgery Procedures

  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Brow Lift
  • Facelift
  • Neck Lift
  • Facial Implants
  • Fat Injections

Benefits of Facial Surgery

  • Erase wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, forehead, and chin
  • Tighten saggy skin around your eyes, mouth, and neck
  • Redefine your jaw line
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Reclaim looks damaged by injuries or cancer

Facial Surgery Procedure

Your plastic surgeon develops an individualized surgical plan to address the concerns you have about your appearance. Each plan is customized to your specific needs and physiology. The surgical plan may include the following:

  • Removal and reshaping of bone
  • Removal of excess skin and fat
  • Tightening of skin and underlying muscles
  • Liposuction to remove pockets of fat and improve contours

Preparing for Facial Surgery

The results of your facial surgery are permanent, although your skin should be protected from sunlight to extend the results.  In some cases, your facial surgery may be combined with injectable treatments. These treatments are not permanent, and results last from six months to one year or longer.

Facial Surgery Recovery

Bandages are applied after your surgery so you may not see improvements until after the bandages are removed. Even then, you are likely to have initial swelling and bruising. Recovery from facial surgery can take a few weeks or months, but you will see a significant difference once you completely heal.*

*Take note individual results may vary
