Different results from plastic surgery are not based solely on the type of procedures used. Facial anatomy and skin type are two of the major factors involved, and both are influenced by ethnicity.
The first factor to consider is how ethnicity impacts aging and healing. Each skin type will react differently to a treatment. However, there are predictable results in most cases. If you have fair, dry and thin skin for example, facelift surgeries are less likely to leave visible scars. Unfortunately, this type of complex does not tend to respond well to removal of wrinkles around the eyes or mouth. It is therefore often necessary to combine a facelift with chemical peels for optimum outcomes.
Those with red hair or freckles may experience hyperpigmentation after surgical procedures that leave scarring. Overexposure to the sun is also a problem for people with this type of complexion. Dr. Benjamin Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery may therefore recommend that you stay out of the sun when possible.
If you have brunette or dark hair, with olive or dark complexion, skin lifting procedures are not likely to work. Scarring is also a potential issue, as the affected tissue can appear darker or more prominent in appearance. You can determine the best types of treatments and procedures in Atlanta by consulting with Dr. Stong and his team.
