Leading New York Oral Surgeon Explains the Process of Facial Cosmetic Surgery

According to New York City oral surgeon, Dr. Harrison Chen, facial cosmetic surgery is the perfect way to reverse the signs of aging.

Online PR News – 09-December-2009 – New York, New York – “There are many reasons why the skin tends to wrinkle and sag as we age,” says Dr. Harrison Chen, of Oral, Maxillofacial, & Cosmetic Surgery of New York (http://www.omcsurgery.com), a leading cosmetic surgery firm located in New York. “Sometimes it is simply the result of the natural aging process, but it can often be attributed to other factors such as exposure to the sun and genetics.”

Chen explains that children and young adults have smooth, round faces because the fatty tissue under the skin is evenly distributed throughout the contours of the face. As a person ages, the skin begins to sag and fit more loosely.

“The folds become prominent, especially around the chin, the jaw line, and along the neck,” says Dr. Chen, “but it doesn’t have to be that way.”

According to Dr. Chen, rhytidectomies, or facelifts, enhance a person’s appearance and correct these conditions by tightening the facial and neck muscles as well as removing any excess skin.

“A good oral surgeon will evaluate a patient’s medical history to determine overall health,” says Dr. Chen. “The objective of a cosmetic surgeon is to create a natural appearance that is pleasing to patient.”

A rhytidectomy can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia, according to Dr. Chen, with a recommended one night stay under nursing supervision.

“Healing is gradual so patients do not notice final results for up to six months,” says Chen. “However, the recovery time is minimal and most patients usually walk away happy with their new youthful appearance.”

Oral, Maxillofacial, & Cosmetic Surgery of New York, located at 140 West 58th Street, Suite A, New York, NY, is the private practice of Dr. Harrison Chen.
