Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can turn back the hands of time and give you a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

What Is Facial Surgery?
Your face reads like the story of your life. Your eyes light up with happiness and laugh lines show pleasant times and good memories. But sun exposure, age, and other issues can cause unwanted concerns about your face. Stress lines and “crow’s feet” may show up around your forehead and eyes. Your neck may develop a “turkey wattle.” Facial surgery can correct all of these concerns and much more.

Benefits of Facial Surgery
Facial surgery offers a number of benefits to help you look and feel your best, including the following:

  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • Youthful, more vibrant-looking skin.
  • Taking years off your face and augmenting your natural beauty.

What Types of Facial Surgery are Available?
A variety of procedures are available to help naturally enhance your facial features, including the following:

How Is Facial Surgery Performed?
Each facial surgery is different and the actual procedure will vary depending on your needs. Each individual is different, so full details will be provided to you at your initial consultation. In many cases, small incisions are made to remove excess skin or cartilage or transfer tissue or fat from unwanted areas of the body to areas where greater volume is desired. Often, skin is stretched or lifted to help minimize wrinkles, creases, or folds that can give away your age.

Preparing for Facial Surgery
Full details will be provided during your initial consultation, as each type of facial surgery has its own set of pre-operative steps. For example, you should not wear makeup, lotions, or creams on the day of your surgery. You may be advised to cleanse the area with a mild surgical soap or follow specific steps at home to better prepare your skin on the day of surgery.

Facial Surgery Recovery
Each surgery and treatment is different, and you will receive specific instruction on recovery and post-operative treatment during your consultation. For example, if you are having a brow lift, you will be asked not to furrow or raise your brows during recovery time to allow the incisions to heal. If you are having an eyelid lift, you may be asked to refrain from wearing contact lenses while your eyes heal. Full recovery details and steps to take will be given to you at your initial consultation after all of your questions have been answered to your complete satisfaction.

How Much Does Facial Surgery Cost?
Costs for your facial surgery will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.

Is Facial Surgery Right for Me?
If you feel self-conscious about certain facial features, including wrinkles, sun exposure, brows, or nose, facial surgery may be able to correct the issue. In addition, congenital defects with the ears, eyelids, nose, or other areas of the face may be able to be corrected with facial surgery.
