How Does Your Ethnicity Affect the Results of Your Facial Plastic Surgery?

Facial Procedures Atlanta GA

When it comes to having facial plastic surgery in Atlanta, everyone will have different results. Your age, skin type, and ethnicity play a huge factor in what you will look like in the end.

Your Ethnic Background

Your skin’s aging and healing characteristics are determined by your ethnic background. The following explains what each skin type should expect from facial plastic surgery:

  • Fair, dry, thin-skinned complexion ages early but responds well to facelift surgery leaving only thin scars. However, wrinkles around the mouth and eyes are harder to get rid of and may require chemical peel solutions.
  • Signs of aging appear later in redheads with a freckled complexion. Scars after facelift surgery are fine but may be hyperpigmented. It’s also important to note that people with this type of skin are the more susceptible to developing skin cancers, so protecting yourself from the sun is very important.
  • Brunettes with olive to dark complexion and oily skin will begin to show fine wrinkling later in life. This skin type may be resistant to being lifted because it’s heavier than thinner, finer, skin. After facial plastic surgery, scarring in the front and back of the ear may be more prominent, and appear darker.
  • A dark brown or black complexion is a heavy skin that resists lifting, but luckily these individuals show signs of aging very late in life. There is a chance of excessive scar tissue forming afterward. Skin cancers in this skin type is also very rare.
