The Benefits of Plastic Surgery: Transforming Lives

In 2001, Patrick Hardison was just doing his job as a firefighter when he was trapped in a burning house in Senatobia Mississippi. As a result of the accident and severe burns, he lost his ears, hair, and eyelids. Even though his good nature and kind heart stayed the same, people had a difficult time looking past his injuries to see the man he was. Life became a journey defined by appearance and face values that Patrick had not expected to take.  A team of highly skilled surgeons at NYU Langone used their plastic surgery training to transform the life of Patrick Hardison. With a dream of being able to look normal at his daughters’ weddings, Patrick now has a new face. Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez was the lead surgeon and performed the most extensive face transplant to date.

Consider the Benefits of Getting a Facelift

Your identity as an individual begins with your face, and if aging takes a toll on your face and gives you a worn out or tired look, it can also take a toll on your confidence levels. While there are many benefits of a facelift plastic surgery, Lubbock surgeon Dr. Rowley knows that beyond restoring a more natural and youthful look, this surgery allows your personality and confidence to radiate from your face as you enjoy the years to come.


Some of the benefits of a facelift include:


Repairing loose skin

Aging causes the elasticity in the skin to relax leading to that saggy-skin appearance we see over time. A facelift can carefully trim and tighten the skin on the face to restore the youthful and natural look you desire. This process should not overly tighten the skin, causing a “pulled” look to the face, but simply lift.


Tightening facial muscles

The superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), or in other words the underlying structures of your face, will also loosen and sag due to weakness from aging. While trimming and lifting skin during this plastic surgery, Lubbock surgeon Dr. Rowley will first tighten and correct this underlying structure to support a more pleasing configuration. This restructuring will also help reduce the strain on your skin over time and results of the procedure will last longer.


Improving facial contours

A facelift will restore youth to your neck, cheeks, and eyes and give you a more attractive jawline. This surgery can be paired with other procedures as well like liposuction in the neck or jowl area to turn back the clock on this incredibly important part of your identity–your face.
