The 5 Most Common Facial Contouring Procedures

Facial contouring includes a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures that create a more youthful look by shaping facial features including the nose, chin and/or ears. Facial contouring allows you to help define the areas of your face where you want greater emphasis and minimize areas that you do not. Ideal candidates for facial contouring are adults who are no longer growing and who are healthy and without medical conditions that would put them at an increased risk for surgical complications. If you are interested in a facial contouring procedure, it is also very important to have realistic goals and to openly and honestly speak with your surgeon about what you are trying to achieve.


The 5 most common and popular facial contouring procedures are:

  1. Facelifts

A facelift is a procedure that is intended to reduce the overall signs of aging. A facelift generally focuses on the lower and middle portions of the face. Facelifts can help to combat fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots, leaving your skin looking softer, natural and years younger.

  1. Brow Lifts

A brow lift tightens and elevates the skin around the eyes, particularly around the eyebrows and upper eyelids. This results in the reduction of wrinkles in the forehead and minimizes the appearance of sagging or excess skin in the upper eye area.

  1. Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular facial contouring procedures. This procedure removes excess skin and fat deposits that begin to look “droopy” as you age. This type of surgery leaves patients with less puffiness around the eyes, minimizes dark circles, giving patients a more youthful look. More than 200,000 eyelid surgeries are performed each year.

  1. Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape one’s nose. It can change the size, shape, and general appearance of a patient’s nose and can even improve breathing problems if that is an issue. It is important to note that rhinoplasty can have a fairly drastic impact on the overall look of your entire face. It is important to spend significant time with a surgeon discussing the desired result before surgery is scheduled. Rhinoplasty is another of the most popular current facial contouring procedures.

  1. Neck Lifts

A neck lift is a contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat deposits in the neck area. A neck lift improves an individual’s overall look by reducing the fat accumulation and excess skin under the chin, giving individuals a more trim and youthful look.
