How Facial Rejuvenation can make you look younger

Wrinkles, fine lines, eye bags, sagging jowls, and other visible signs of aging are inevitable. Other factors such as prolonged sun exposure, genetics, medications, smoking, and repeated facial expressions can also play a part in the development of your skin and facial imperfections. If you want to achieve smoother, radiant, and younger-looking skin on your face, facial rejuvenation might be right for you.

Dr Turner’s approach is to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you that will best address your desires from quick non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime to surgical procedures which can provide dramatic improvements and proven longevity.

The aim of facial enhancement is to revitalise, refine and beautify, not to exaggerate your face. This requires a thorough understanding of facial harmony and aesthetic proportions to achieve the right balance of treatment/s, both surgical and non-surgical. If wrong decisions are made and inappropriate procedures undertaken then facial harmony can be destroyed creating unnatural results.

Face Surgery FAQs – Questions about Facial Surgery & Neck Surgery

Will my Private Health Insurance cover my Facial Surgery Expenses?

In most cases, your health insurance plan will not cover your facial surgery expenses because it is considered cosmetic and 'elective surgery'. To reduce your financial burden, Dr Turner can provide you with information about a range of medical financing options during your consultation.

What should I do before my Facial Surgery?

During your consultation with a top surgeon, you will be advised to avoid any blood-thinning medications, smoking, alcohol, and prolonged sun exposure a week before your surgery to ensure optimal results and lower your risk of complications.

How can I minimize discomfort after my Procedure?

Aside from taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, your surgeon will advise you to use an ice compress over your surgical wound to minimize facial discomforts. Before discharge, your surgeon will teach you how to care for your wound.

How long will the Results of my Facial Surgery Last?

Several factors will affect the clinical outcome of your surgery including your surgeon's skills, the type and extent of your surgery, how you care for your wound, and how you adhere to post-surgical instructions. In general, the results of face surgery are permanent and can last for several years. However, you may need another surgery at some point in your life to maintain your younger-looking skin.
