About First Face

When the face first begins to encounter age-related and environmental influences, there are several predictable changes we can expect. Not everyone ages in the same exact way, because their adult structure and genetics are different, and because their lifestyles and habits are different. But there some common elements to everyone’s process.The first face treatment refers to a uniquely created surgical procedure by aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile including fat grafting and skin tightening for someone who is just reaching the point in life, typically their 30s and 40s, when they will benefit from having their first aesthetic intervention. At Basile Plastic Surgery, the procedure is designed to restore the face to its first or original appearance. If you're interested in learning more about this technique, we invite you to call our office in Naples, FL to learn more.

Ideal Candidates

The first face surgery is designed for individuals who are experiencing early on signs of aging such as loss of facial volume in the cheeks and chin as well as other subtle changes that affect the facial features. Droopy skin and wrinkles may also be a concern as well. Typically patients who receive this treatment are in their 30s and 40s, but this procedure can be performed on any adult. The mini facelift and fat transfer combination can be very successful at restoring your face back to or close to its original state.

Surgical Technique

The first face procedure is custom tailored, much like the mommy makeover, to address those specific individual needs created by the early changes of the aging face. This treatment often starts with general or local anesthesia being administered before a fat transfer technique is performed to restore some lost volume to the cheeks, mid-face, temples, brow, or lips. We then tailor the eyelids if necessary and tweak the eyebrow position if needed. Dr. Basile will often then tighten the cheek and lower face with a limited facelift technique.

What to Expect

The goal of the first face is to create a natural freshening up of the facial features and proportions, as well as to erase the appearance of fatigue or stress with a limited amount of downtime. No two procedures will be the same, so each recovery process will look different. You will experience some soreness, redness, and discomfort following your procedure, and you will most likely be sent home in a compression garment. Some patients may return to their normal activities in a week while others may require several weeks to fully heal. It can take up to one year in some cases to see the full results of your procedure. Scarring should be minimal, as the incisions are placed in discreet areas that are hidden.
