Facial Plastic Surgery in St. Petersburg, FL
The human face plays a vital part in today’s society in the way it is seen as friendly, engaging and attractive. However, the face has cosmetic flaws that can distract others before they can get to know the real you on the inside. When we communicate with one another, we use facial expressions and others will perceive us based on how we appear. That is why many people will try to look the best they can. The appearance of being depressed, sad or even angry can be created by lines, wrinkles, and the loss of skin volume causing drooping skin. These can also cause your bone structure in the chin, nose and cheeks to appear out of proportion. Dr. Dean G. Davis, a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, specializes in men and women’s facial plastic surgery in St. Petersburg, FL.
Some people may have a facial abnormality they want to improve caused by sun damage, facial trauma, simple aging or something they have had since birth. Fortunately, these and many other conditions can be improved upon and corrected through facial plastic surgery.
Why Consider Facial Plastic Surgery?
Facial plastic surgery is a branch of otolaryngology. Otolaryngologists diagnose and treat conditions that involve the lips, nose, neck, ears and even the entire face. Facial plastic surgery is divided into cosmetic and reconstructive. Cosmetic facial plastic surgery will improve the appearance of the structures and features of the face. Common procedures include ones to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, chin and cheek implants, face and eye lifts and rhinoplasty.
Patients who have birth defects, such as unsavory birthmarks or protruding ears, and facial injuries from accidents, trauma, burns or previous surgeries may opt for reconstructive plastic surgery. Skin cancer can also be treated with reconstructive plastic surgery. At Davis Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Davis is well trained to perform reconstructive and cosmetic surgery to address your concerns.

Preparing for Facial Plastic Surgery
Depending on the type of anesthesia that will be used, the proper preparations need to be made before surgery. For example, you cannot eat or drink the day of the surgery if you choose to have general anesthesia. Also, you will need someone to drive you to and from the Davis Facial Plastic Surgery office. You may need to take time off from work depending on the length of your recovery time.
The Recovery Process of Facial Plastic Surgery
Each facial plastic surgery varies on the recovery period time. The majority of the procedures require a healing time frame of seven to 14 days. Some surgeries could require a longer period.
How Much Does Facial Plastic Surgery Cost?
With most insurance companies, facial plastic surgery is an elective procedure, meaning these policies do not offer benefits for the procedure. At Davis Facial Plastic Surgery, we try to ensure these procedures are more accessible and affordable to as many patients as possible. Financing via CareCredit® is an accepted form of payment. Dr. Davis also accepts cash, major credit cards, and checks.
