Here Are The Signs To Know You Had A Good Facial Surgery

The ultimate sign of a good facial surgery is not being able to tell you even had surgery in the first place. Facial surgeries often include facelift, neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, brow lift, rhinoplasty and fat transfer.

Here’s a breakdown of each…


A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance. A sign of a good facelift is good positioning of the ears post surgery. There should be no redness around the ears and no signs of scarring after the healing period. Another sign to look for is if the face moves the same from one side to the other without unnatural movements while smiling.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a procedure used to enhance the appearance of your neck. This usually includes removing excess skin and can also include liposuction to remove excess fat. Signs of a good neck left starts with the appearance. The neck area should appear natural and not have an over tightened look. Movement should look natural and the neck should not have a caved-in appearance.


A blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery operation for correcting sagging skin above and/or below the eyelids and sometimes deformities as well. Patients can choose to have just an upper blepharoplasty, just a lower or both depending on their wants and needs. As we age our upper eyelid skin loosens and begins to change shape, a naural result would restore the eyelid to its previous appearance without looking overdone or tightened. A good lower blepharoplasty would show flattened lower eyelids without making them look too hollow.

Brow Lift

A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure to elevate a drooping eyebrow that may have impaired vision and can also remove the deep worry lines that run across the forehead. Good signs of a good brow lift include a natural looking hairline, a natural space left between eyebrows and natural looking placement of the eyebrows.

Rhinoplasty is commonly known as a nose job. It can remove a bump in the rose, correct a slanted or off center appearance and reduce the size of the tip of the nose. The best rhinoplasty outcomes are those that you cannot identify. Good signs would be an evenly proportioned nose that looks attractive and natural.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is a surgical process by which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another. Although fat transfer is an excellent way to reverse facial aging, it must be done subtly and naturally. A good fat transfer recreates natural curves, bringing youthfulness and fullness to the face. Areas such as the eyes, cheeks, jawline and lips are often areas that can be improved with a fat transfer procedure. Signs of a good fat transfer to the face are subtle and natural with natural inflation to reconstruct these areas.
