During The surgery

If you want to have facial bone shaping surgery, you need to be well prepared to achieve the desired results and prevent complications. Preparation for facial bone shaping may differ depending on the procedure. Therefore, you should always ask your doctor what you should do beforehand. In general and regardless of the procedure you are about to do, you should:

  • Quit smoking: Quit smoking 4 to 6 weeks before surgery.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption: Drinking alcohol can increase the chance of bleeding during and after the procedure. You should avoid alcohol about a week before the surgery.
  • Avoid using blood thinners: It is not recommended to take blood thinners before surgery. If you are taking these, tell your doctor and ask if you should stop the medication or use another alternative.
  • Stop herbal remedies: Just because they’re natural doesn’t mean they can’t harm you. Tell your doctor about any herbal medicine you are taking and ask if you should discontinue it before surgery.
  • Protect yourself from the sun: Try to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen. It is better to have a natural skin tone during surgery.
  • Avoid eating the night before surgery: Eating before surgery can affect anesthesia, so you should stop eating the night before surgery. On the other hand, you should drink enough water and stay hydrated.
  • Medical tests: Some surgeries may require some blood testing and imaging. Ask your surgeon if you need to do any testing, especially if you are about to use a surgical approach.

Preparation also includes preparing your mind. Some approaches are irreversible, so you need to know exactly what to do. Ask for a few images from people who have had surgery before and be honest with your doctor about your expectations, tell them if you have any concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every individual is different, so the surgical recommendation will differ according to the facial structure. If the face size or shape is large due to the bone structure in the face, surgery is required to change it.

Bones are shaved with face shaping surgery. They are fixed in place with pins and screws. Since the bones will not move after they heal, the results of the surgery are permanent.

The pins do not need to be removed. The pins are made of titanium, which does not affect the body. However, if you don’t want anyone to know that you have had the surgery, you can have the surgery done. Your surgeon should examine you to see when you can remove them (Approximately 6-24 months).

Salty, oily, spicy foods should be avoided for a month. Chewed food should be avoided for at least a month, but three months is better to allow the bones to heal well.

This depends on age and the level of elasticity of the skin. The less skin elasticity is, the higher the chance that a stretching surgery will be needed along with face contouring surgery. Therefore, even if you are young, but your skin is not very elastic, then a lift is recommended.

Drowsiness is one of the symptoms of surgery that improves over time. When the nerves on the face heal, the feeling will begin to return. It may take 6 months to a year for the numbness to go away.

After the bones heal, their position will not change even as they age.
