When To Consider Facial Plastic Surgery

What do you see when you look in the mirror? If your eyes focus on a specific imperfection, you might be wondering if it’s worth considering plastic surgery.

Once considered taboo, facial plastic surgery has come a long way in recent years. It’s customizable, attainable, and it could be the answer you’ve been looking for. At our modern office in Fort Worth, Texas, plastic surgeon Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, and our team specialize in facial plastic surgery, from facelifts to nose jobs and everything in between.

Facial plastic surgery is very personal. Your body and your aesthetic goals are unique — but Dr. Gracia and our team are here to help you decide when it’s time to consider plastic surgery. You might be ready if...

You have a specific goal in mind

Plastic surgery is customizable, but it’s important to have clear goals and realistic expectations when you’re considering it. Think about why you want to have the procedure: is it to boost your own confidence? Or are you feeling pressure from someone else?

People who choose plastic surgery for their own benefit tend to be the happiest with their results. Dr. Gracia is here to help you find ways to accentuate your natural features and help you feel beautiful in your own skin — and not to turn you into someone else.

Many people choose plastic surgery to improve facial features that make them feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. Whether you’re bothered by a mole you’ve had since birth or you broke your nose as a teenager and it healed with a bump, plastic surgery could help you love what you see in the mirror.

You’re ready for a significant change

Facial plastic surgery is an option for many teenagers and adults of all ages. But as you grow older, your face is often one of the first areas to show signs of age.

Lines, wrinkles, thinning lips, and sagging cheeks can change the way your face looks and make you feel less confident. As an anti-aging expert, Dr. Gracia evaluates your concerns and helps you find treatment options that meet your goals.

If you have mild to moderate signs of aging, he might recommend a range of non-surgical aesthetic services to enhance your look. BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and fractional CO2 laser facials can revitalize skin without the need for plastic surgery.

But if you have significant signs of aging or you’re seeking more dramatic results, plastic surgery could be right for you. Dr. Gracia is proud to deliver youthful, natural results for each patient.

Your health care team recommends it

Plastic surgery is often synonymous with cosmetic surgery, but the reasons to consider it go far beyond aesthetics. Certain types of plastic surgery, like rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty, can improve the way your body functions along with changing your appearance.

For example, many people with deviated septums or other breathing problems choose rhinoplasty, or nose jobs, because the procedure can clear obstructions within the airways. Blepharoplasty or eyelid lifts can make you look younger, but the procedure also removes excess skin that blocks vision in severe cases.
