What Is a Full Facial Transformation?

A full facial transformation includes a facelift, a lip lift, upper and lower eyelid surgery, and even fat grafting. These procedures address signs of aging in a variety of ways:

  • A facelift tightens loose skin and removes wrinkles.
  • A lip lift augments and restores definition to thin lips.
  • Upper and lower blepharoplasty lifts sagging upper and lower eyelids while reducing eyelid puffiness.
  • Fat grafting brings back lost volume, plumping the hollow areas of the face.

Ideal Candidates

You are a good candidate for a full facial transformation if you are interested in achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. If you want to address multiple areas of concern on your face with only a single recovery period, this is an ideal option for you.

You can undergo this combination of facial surgery procedures if you are in good overall health. It is ideal if you are a non-smoker. Smokers will need to quit several weeks before the surgery.

Your Consultation

A physical examination will be performed to assess which procedures will be included in your full facial transformation. A review of your medical history will be undertaken to determine any risk factors. You will also be asked about recent procedures or treatments, current medications, and pre-existing medical conditions.

A personalized treatment plan will be developed to accomplish your desired outcome. You will be given instructions on how to properly prepare for your surgery.

The Full Facial Transformation Procedure

The first step in a full facial transformation surgery is the administration of anesthesia to eliminate the chance of pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Precise and careful incisions are then made. For a facelift, the incisions are made along the hairline, where they will be well-hidden. Lip lift incisions are made in various locations, depending on the exact technique chosen. For blepharoplasty, the incisions are made on the upper eyelid crease and either along the lower lash line or inside the lower lid.

Once incisions have been created, excess skin and tissue are removed and repositioned as needed. Once the desired results are achieved, the incisions will be closed with stitches and then bandaged.

Fat grafting is performed by transferring fat from other parts of the body. The fat cells are harvested from donor sites through liposuction, purified, and then injected into the target sites. This procedure augments the contours and shape of the face.

It can take several hours for the whole process to be completed. In some cases, it takes more than one surgical appointment.

The Recovery Process

The recovery period differs for each patient based on the complexity of the procedure. Bruising, redness, and swelling will be present and may last for a few weeks. It may be hard to eat and chew for a few days. Patients are also advised not to drink from straws so as not to undo the stitches around the lips.

It can take several weeks for all incisions to fully heal. You will see the final results after about three to four months.

How Much Does a Full Facial Transformation Cost?

Due to Dr. Raskin’s customized approach, the cost of a full facial transformation will depend on the combination of procedures utilized. The overall price may be affected by anesthetic and surgical fees.

How Does Aging Affect Your Face?

Full Facial Transformation in Greenwich
  • Loss of facial volume: The fullness that provides your face with youthful contours vanishes over time. Facial fat droops, creating sunken cheeks and deeper hollows beneath the eyes. The lips also may appear thinner than they used to be.
  • Loss of skin elasticity: Collagen and elastin are two proteins in your skin that help to keep your skin firm and elastic. With age, however, your production of these proteins decreases, creating skin laxity and sagging features, particularly around your jawline where jowls form.
  • New lines and wrinkles: As your skin becomes thinner, new lines start to appear on your face. Static wrinkles are the result of volume loss and laxity, while dynamic wrinkles form due to facial muscle movements and can linger on the skin long after.
  • Drooping eyelids: As muscles weaken and skin sags, your upper eyelids are likely to droop, covering more of your eye and diminishing your field of vision.

Full Facial Transformation FAQs

At what age can I have full facial transformation?

Full Facial Transformation surgery in GreenwichMost patients who seek full facial transformation are over 40, but the timeline can be different from one patient to the next depending on factors like genetics, sun exposure, and skincare routine. Some women seek facial rejuvenation in their 30s and some do after 60. So long as you have visible signs of aging throughout your face that you would like to improve with cosmetic procedures, you are likely a good candidate for this surgical plan.

Do I need to get every procedure included in full facial transformation?

Full facial transformation is intended to be a comprehensive combination of procedures to rejuvenate your face. However, every patient’s needs and wishes are different. Dr. Raskin can customize the surgical plan to address the areas that you would like to improve. All options will be discussed during the consultation stage so that you know what to expect and feel confident in your decisions.

How is full facial transformation different from facelift?

To some, “facelift” sounds like a procedure that rejuvenates the entire face. However, facelift primarily focuses on the lower face and neck, ignoring the cheeks, eyes, and forehead. For a more complete facial rejuvenation, you may need multiple procedures to achieve your desired effect. If signs of aging on your lower face are your primary concern, then you may be a better candidate for facelift instead.

Is it safe to combine facial procedures?

Yes, full facial transformation is safe with minimal complication risks when performed by a top plastic surgeon like Dr. Raskin. In fact, combining facial procedures has multiple benefits. Firstly, it can save the patient money by reducing anesthesia and operating costs that come from scheduling separate procedures. Secondly, it can save you a significant amount of time, not only because of fewer appointments, but also because you can overlap the recovery time so that you can limit your time off from work and responsibilities.

Does full facial transformation hurt?

Anesthesia keeps you comfortable during your surgeries. Dr. Raskin will prescribe you pain medication to help relieve any discomfort you experience in the days following full facial transformation.
