What Procedures are Considered a Cosmetic Maxillofacial Surgery?

Posted on 4/11/2022 by San Tan Oral Surgery
What Procedures are Considered a Cosmetic Maxillofacial Surgery?A majority of people think about traditional cosmetic surgery like facelifts when they hear of cosmetic surgery, however, maxillofacial surgery can also involve procedures like brow sculpting and laser resurfacing. Maxillofacial surgeons have proper training in surgical procedures that involve both hard tissue and soft tissue. Numerous maxillofacial procedures are available to help treat and correct specific conditions.

Cosmetic Surgery Facelift

A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the visible signs of aging. This surgery addresses issues in the face and neck. Several kinds of cosmetic surgery facelift exist, including limited incision facelifts, traditional facelifts, and necklifts.

Limited Incision Facelift

This procedure utilizes shorter incisions done at the temples and around the ears. Also referred to as mini-lifts, limited incision facelifts are an alternative to full facelifts and are performed in people with less skin relaxation.

Traditional Facelift

A maxillofacial surgeon will make an incision that starts at the temples area and the hairline. The incisions continue around the ears up to the areas near the lower part of the scalp. The specialist may sculpt or redistribute fat around the neck, face, and jowls. The surgeon repositions the underlying tissue and lifts the deeper, inner layers of the face as well as the muscles.


When injected into your skin, Botox temporarily reduces or alleviates fine lines and wrinkles. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon utilizes botulinum toxin type-A to treat forehead creases, crow's feet, and frown lines. If you have thick jaw muscles, a gummy smile, thick bands in your neck, or lip lines, you may also benefit from this procedure.

There are other cosmetic maxillofacial surgery procedures such as otoplasty, genioplasty, and browlift. If you have any concerns or questions about cosmetic maxillofacial surgeries, set up a consultation appointment with our surgeons.
