The Most Popular Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures

The Most Popular Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures

Many patients can experience feelings of insecurity about their appearance due to deep lines and wrinkles, drooping skin, or unevenly shaped features. In order to revitalize appearances and achieve facial symmetry, facial cosmetic surgery operations can address the particular demands of each patient. Some of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures involve smoothing wrinkles, lifting loose skin, or enhancing features to maintain a more youthful look. Dr. Finkel consults with patients to decide which therapies will result in the desired outcomes. Make an appointment for a personal consultation at Dr. Finkel’s office to learn more about some of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures.

Most Common Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures

Wrinkles and asymmetrical features are just a few of the problems that can be resolved with facial plastic surgery. The following concerns may be addressed with facial plastic surgery: 

  • Facial creases and lines that range from mild to severe 
  • Jowls or sagging neck tissue 
  • Sagging eyelids 
  • Skewed nose 
  • Problems with nose size 
  • Undefined cheekbones or chin 

Procedures for facial plastic surgery enable those who want to look better to reach their ideal appearance. Each patient has specific demands that can be met by a wide range of treatments, and many treatments can be combined for better outcomes. The following are some of the most common facial plastic surgery procedures: 


For a more youthful appearance, the facelift operation can tighten loose skin and smooth out wrinkles. Different facelift methods allow for customization to meet the needs of each patient. A tiny facelift might be the greatest choice for people who want to enhance the lower part of the face, including the jaw line. A full facelift may be helpful for people who want to enhance the appearance of their brow, midface, jawline, and upper neck. 

The third most frequent surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation is the facelift. There were 121,531 facelifts carried out in 2018. This represents a decrease of 3% from the total of 125,697 facelifts in 2017. 

Neck Lift

Surgery for a neck lift can treat loose, drooping skin from the neck, sometimes known as a “turkey wattle” or “turkey neck.” 

The next most popular procedure for facial cosmetic surgery is a neck lift. 53,571 neck lifts were performed in 2018, up from 53,028 in 2017. The nature of the surgery and its ability to improve face beauty while eradicating symptoms of advanced age are evident from the 1% increase in surgical treatments.

Forehead Lift and Brow Lift

The expression can appear worn out and irate if there are deep forehead creases, furrowed brows, and a sagging brow line. For a more youthful appearance, a brow and forehead lift might help to reduce wrinkles and tighten the tissues. 

The forehead lift completes our list of the top five facial operations. In 2018, 38,795 brow lift surgeries were carried out, which is a 3 percent decrease from the 39,886 operations carried out in 2017. This decline is comparable to the modest decline in facelift acceptance, which takes us to a crucial issue in today’s facial rejuvenation: the rise in acceptance of non-surgical cosmic injections.

Eyelid Surgery

As we age, our eyelids may start to droop, making us look older and blocking our eyesight. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be done to lift sagging, drooping eyelids to improve vision and give the face a refreshed, younger appearance. 

The second most common facial plastic surgery technique in 2018 is cosmetic eyelid surgery, which is consistent with its popularity in prior years. 206,529 eye lifts were performed in 2018, down from 209,571 in 2017. Even though there has been a 1% decline, this is still a fantastic anti-aging solution.


People who are dissatisfied with the nose’s appearance, size, or alignment may gain from this procedure. Surgery for rhinoplasty can enhance facial symmetry and balance as well as the look of the nose. 

Facial Implants

Patients who have an undefined chin or cheeks may feel self-conscious about their appearance since the face appears imbalanced. The cheekbones and chin can be given more definition using facial implants.

Lip Augmentation

People who are dissatisfied with the way their thin lips look frequently choose this procedure. Dermal fillers or fat transfer can be used to improve the fullness of the lips during lip augmentation.

Nose Job

For many years now, the most common facial cosmetic surgery technique has been a nose job. In 2018, there were 213,780 procedures to reshape the nose. In 2017, there were 218,924 rhinoplasty surgeries performed for comparison’s sake. This is a 2% decline over the course of a year, but they are still respectable numbers.

Facial Surgery Vs Cosmetic Injections as a Trend

The popularity of anti-aging procedures like facelifts and forehead lifts has been declining, but interest in cosmetic injectables has been rising. BOTOX® injections increased by 3% in 2018 over 2017, while dermal filler injections increased by 2%. These procedures include shorter recovery times, no downtime, and transient outcomes at more reasonable costs. 

We predict that some facial surgery treatments will lose appeal while maintaining stable numbers as more people resort to cosmetic injectables for wrinkle reduction requirements. The neck lift, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty are three common facial operations that will continue to be popular because they produce effects that cosmetic injectables do not.

Every operation carries some risk. Your emotional health may be affected if you are disappointed with the outcome. Some people turn to cosmetic surgery to deal with personal issues or during trying times. Do not believe that a cosmetic operation would solve all of your problems. One part of your well-being is how you feel about your appearance. Other key factors include your work, social life, diet, and way of life.

Ask Yourself Some Questions as You Consider Facial Plastic Surgery

If you’re thinking about getting cosmetic surgery, start by asking yourself: 

  • What should I modify, and why should I have the proposed procedure? 
  • How long have I been contemplating this action? 
  • What is the state of my life right now? Am I anticipating that the operation will affect my situation? 
  • Why am I considering surgery right now? What caused it? 
  • Exist any alternative means via which I could make the desired changes? 
  • Do I anticipate that the treatment will alter both my life and my appearance? 
  • Do I desire a cosmetic operation for my own benefit or someone else’s approval? 
  • Am I hoping the treatment will help my relationship, my ability to interact with others, or my employment prospects? 
  • Can I afford the procedure’s price to maintain the effect?
