Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL
In today’s society, the face plays an important part in being seen as attractive, friendly and engaging. Unfortunately, cosmetic flaws distract the people around you from seeing who you are on the inside. Lines, wrinkles, drooping skin and lost skin volume create an appearance of being sad, depressed and angry. Bone structures, such as those on the nose, chin and cheeks, cause your facial proportions to be out of balance. Dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist Dr. Dean G. Davis specializes in facial plastic surgery for the men and women in and around Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida.
We use facial expressions when we communicate and interact with each other, and the way we look has an effect on how others perceive us. Due to this, many people attempt to look the best they can.
Some people want to improve specific features of their face, such as a facial abnormality that they have had since birth, facial trauma, sun damage or the effects of aging. It is fortunate that these and other conditions can be corrected through facial plastic surgery.
Why Consider Facial Plastic Surgery?
Otolaryngologists can diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions involving the neck, lips, nose, ears and whole face. Facial plastic surgery is a part of otolaryngology that is divided into two groups: cosmetic and reconstructive. At Davis Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Davis is trained well to perform both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to address your concerns.
Cosmetic facial plastic surgery is performed to improve the appearance of the features and structures of your face. Some of the most common procedures are rhinoplasty, cheek and chin implants, facelift and eye lift. Procedures to reduce and improve facial wrinkles are also common.
Reconstructive plastic surgery is for patients who have birth-related conditions or defects, such as protruding ears or birthmarks. Facial injuries resulting from trauma, accidents, burns and previous surgeries can also be corrected through reconstructive procedures. Additionally, some of the procedures are necessary to treat certain diseases, including skin cancer.

Preparing for Facial Plastic Surgery
The proper preparations for surgery need to be made based on the type of anesthesia that will be used. If you choose general anesthesia, for example, you cannot eat or drink on the day of your surgery. You will also need to make the necessary transportation arrangements to and from the Davis Facial Plastic Surgery office. Depending on the length of your recovery time, you will need to take time off work.
The Recovery Process of Facial Plastic Surgery
Every type of facial plastic surgery has a different period of recovery. Most procedures require seven to 14 days of healing time, but some surgeries may require longer periods.
How Much Does Facial Plastic Surgery Cost?
A majority of insurance companies list facial plastic surgery as an elective procedure, so most policies do not offer benefits for it. To ensure that these procedures are affordable and more accessible to as many patients as possible, financing via CareCredit® is an accepted form of payment at Davis Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr. Davis accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well.
Is Facial Plastic Surgery Right for Me?
If you have concerns or are insecure about the cosmetic appearance of your face, you are a good candidate for facial plastic surgery.
