When are plastic surgical procedures in the facial area necessary?
Plastic surgery may be necessary for aesthetic reasons. This can be the case, for example, when the jaw needs to be corrected, because the patient has problems with his own mirror image due to a malposition. In these cases we speak of cosmetic surgery.
But also for regenerative reasons, such as after tumors or accidents, the oral-maxillofacial surgery can help restore an aesthetic appearance and thus significantly improve the quality of life of the person concerned.
Which plastic-aesthetic operations in the face and head area can be used?
With the help of cosmetic surgery, minor and major blemishes in the facial area can be positively changed. When a part of the facial muscles relaxes, unpleasant wrinkles develop. Smaller wrinkles can be tautened by a Botox wrinkle treatment and major corrections through the classic facelift.
When the forehead-cheeks-neck lift known full-facelift or Face-Necklift not only the skin of the face and neck is tightened. The tissue layers affected by the aging process are removed in this cosmetic operation, and the underlying tissue structures are raised to highlight the youthful facial proportions. Such a treatment takes about 3-5 hours and is carried out in deep sleep (twilight sleep) or under general anesthesia.
Especially in aesthetic surgery, it has become fashionable to look abroad for interesting offers. Thus, recruitment companies attract with large discounts for cosmetic surgery such as a nose job or breast surgery. Here, the interested party should not forget that each intervention is associated with risks and follow-up.

Periodontal disease is a common problem. When the bacterial process breaks down the tooth bed and jaw bone or too much gum becomes visible, experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeons are called upon to restore the patient’s periodontium.
