What to Ask Before Face Sculpting
Cosmetic Surgery of the face (face sculpting) has become increasingly common.
By the end of the consultation with your cosmetic surgeon, you should have clear answers to the following 10 questions:
1. Do I have realistic expectations of the outcome of treatment?
2. How is the procedure performed and how long will it take?
3. Which technique(s) will help me to achieve the result I want?
4. What kind of anaesthesia (local anaesthetic, sedation or general anaesthetic) would you recommend for my cosmetic surgery?
5. How much does the procedure cost and what other factors affect the overall cost (i.e. hospital fee, anaesthesia, etc)?
6. What are the surgeon’s professional qualifications, training and level of experience in performing the operation?
7. What percentage of patients experience complications with this operation?
8. What is the surgeon’s policy for repeating or adjusting the operation if the outcome does not meet agreed upon goals?
9. How many times will I see you after surgery to ensure good aftercare?
10. What can I expect after surgery in terms of discomfort, scarring, recovery and return to normal activities?
These questions should be the minimum you should ask before proceeding with facial sculpting.

Facial Sculpting and Facial Contouring Treatments in Reading
Facial sculpting emphasizes the fact the balance of the facial features are just as relevant as the beautiful appearance of each part in contributing to what we term 'a beautiful face'.
Facial Sculpting has also been a result of experience showing that clean facial features do not automatically mean a beautiful face, and that a beautiful face often hides a number of imperfections.
One of the typical examples of facial balance issues is related to the relationship between the nose and the chin on someone's profile. When the chin is relatively small (retrogenia or microgenia) it makes the nose appear more prominent. Correcting the shape of the nose can be successful in creating a beautiful nose but not necessarily in creating a beautiful profile. A combination of nose reshaping and chin enhancement can lead to a more balanced and pleasing profile.
Another example of facial disproportion is related to malar hypoplasia or underdevelopment of the cheekbones. When this is quite severe, leading to poor alignment of the teeth, more radical surgical procedures are necessary.
However, in most instances, this is a relatively mild or moderate problem that is associated with a flatter appearance of the face, and with the appearance of lower lid bags or deep nasolabial lines (running from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth) even in the young . This can be improved with augmentation techniques, using either implants or bones in the malar region or around the base of the nose.
