Facial cosmetic procedures offer several solutions designed to improve and refine facial features, addressing various concerns from aging effects to structural imbalances. These treatments, performed by skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. John Farella of Plastic Surgery
Westchester, varies from minimally invasive injections to comprehensive surgical transformations.

Process of Facial Cosmetic Procedures

Before you get any face procedures, you should have an initial consultation with Dr. Farella, during which you will discuss your aesthetic goals and medical history. This is followed by a detailed assessment and the development of a personalized treatment plan. Pre-operative preparations are guided by Dr. Farella to help you become fully informed and prepared for the cosmetic facial procedures.

On the day of the procedure, you are cared for by a dedicated team focused on your safety and comfort.

Post-procedure, follow-up visits are important to monitor your recovery progress and achieve the best possible outcome.

Benefits and Risks of Facial Procedures

Facial cosmetic treatments offer numerous benefits that contribute to cosmetic enhancements, including the following:

  • Enhanced facial symmetry – Face procedures can correct asymmetrical features, providing a more balanced and proportionate facial appearance.
  • Rejuvenation of aging skin – Treatments like facelifts and skin resurfacing reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, promoting a youthful complexion.
  • Improved contours – Surgical modifications, such as facelifts or eyelid lifts, create more defined facial structures.
  • Scar reduction – Techniques like laser therapy and revision surgery can significantly reduce the visibility of scars and other skin imperfections.

However, like any medical procedure, these treatments carry inherent risks such as the possibility of infection, as well as common recovery symptoms like swelling and bruising. It’s crucial to have detailed discussions with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Farella to effectively address these risks and make a well-informed decision about undergoing facial cosmetic procedures.

Ideal Candidates for Facial Procedures

Ideal candidates for face plastic surgery are individuals in good general health, non-smokers, and those without serious medical conditions that could impair healing. Candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes and specific aesthetic concerns that can be addressed through surgical or non-surgical treatments. Psychological readiness to undergo cosmetic changes and a positive outlook toward undergoing cosmetic enhancements is also important for a successful outcome.

Cost of Facial Procedures

The cost of facial cosmetic procedures varies widely depending on the specific treatment, the complexity of the procedure, and associated costs like anesthesia and facility fees. You will get an estimate of the total cost of the procedure during the consultation.


How long is the recovery after a facial procedure?

Recovery varies by procedure, typically ranging from a few days for non-invasive treatments to several weeks for surgical interventions.

Will there be visible scars?

Surgical procedures may result in post-surgical marks, which are typically well-concealed and diminish over time.

How long do the results last?

The longevity of results varies by procedure, with some treatments offering permanent corrections while others may require maintenance sessions.

What are the specific considerations for a facelift procedure?

A facelift addresses signs of aging by tightening the skin and underlying tissues. Considerations include the extent of skin laxity, your health status, and the desired outcome. Recovery can take up to two weeks, with results lasting up to ten years.

How can rhinoplasty improve facial balance?

Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, can significantly affect facial aesthetics by changing the size or shape of the nose to complement facial features better. It can also correct functional issues like breathing difficulties.

What should I know about scar revision and mole removal?

Scar revision can reduce the appearance of scars from injuries or previous surgeries, improving skin texture and appearance. Mole removal involves excising or shaving moles for aesthetic reasons or to remove potentially harmful growths, with minimal recovery time required.
