Facial cosmetic surgery is surgery done to enhance the appearance of a patient. This surgery can be done on different parts of the body, but for the sake of this article we will limit our discussion to the face. It is important to know that while this process is aimed at improving the aesthetics of the face, there are side effects associated with it.
Side Effects of Facial Cosmetic Surgery
For some cases, these effects are permanent and for other cases
temporary. Here are some the following side effects which one can
encounter during or after surgery;
1. Changes in skin Pigmentation
Of course it’s not everybody’s skin that is well suitable for laser or
facial cosmetic surgery. This can only be good on people who have a
lighter skin tone and not on those on a darker skin tones. This does not
totally give hope to those with lighter skin tones because both can as
well encounter a risk of hypo pigmentation (lightening of the skin) or
hyper pigmentation (that’s darkening of the skin).
The kind of pain one can encounter during a facial surgery is sometimes
unimaginable. Stuff like anesthetics are usually applied before the
surgery is taken place which helps to minimize pains as it could. After
the surgery, there are possibilities of experiencing pains again. This
leads to giving you pain pills by the doctors in order to calm you down.
3. Sensitivity of the sun
Your face becomes sensitive to the sun after performing a facial
cosmetic surgery. After this surgery is done on your face, it is
important for you to stay out of the sun during the peak hours and/or
get yourself covered with sunscreen protection. If this is ignored, you
are likely to encounter skin damages.
This is yet another side effect of facial cosmetic surgery. There is a
tendency to experience bruises in the face after the surgery. Usually
some purple spots surrounding the face and containing vessels. However,
for most cases these bruise fade up on their own.
5. Loss of fat
The facial surgery encounters loss of fats which is more common with
radiofrequency treatments such as Thermage. This is because
radiofrequency restricts cells that help to build up fats.
This is actually not a common side effect, but this does not prevent it
from happening; especially when the surgery is been performed with some
kinds of invasive cosmetic laser procedures. To prevent the infections
from occurring, doctors may give out some antibiotics creams and
sometimes pills to help prevent infections
It is of utmost importance that you choose your specialist and also the
surgery center carefully to minimize the side effects that come with a
cosmetic facial surgery. A perfect recommendation of a center for facial
surgery is the Dr. Choi Aesthetic Centre.
