The endoscopic brow lift is performed under IV sedation
with local anesthesia or can be performed under general anesthesia
with tumescent technique. The procedure takes approximately 30 to 45
minutes. Small incisions are created behind the hairline, measuring
less than 2-cm in length. These incisions hide quite nicely in the
hairline. This minimally invasive technique of endoscopic
visualization is performed using a fiber optic endoscope.
Visualization is in an exact plane beneath the scalp and
subcutaneous tissue. Tissue is released and repositioned to appear
more youthful. The hairline is slightly raised. The eyebrows and
redundant eyelid skin are also repositioned upward. The forehead
glabellar muscles, which cause the facial expressions of worry,
concern, and fatigue are trimmed.
Comprehensive Face and Neck
Aging of the face is inevitable. As the years go by, the skin
on the face and neck begins to loosen. The jaw line softens into
jowls and excess tissue forms at the front of the neck. The
rhytidectomy, or facelift, could improve your looks and
self-confidence. As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and
realistic expectations are prerequisites. The goal of the facelift
is to improve the overall facial appearance. A facelift cannot stop
aging, nor can it turn back the clock. It will not improve fine
wrinkles. What it can do is help your face look its best and give
you a healthy, more youthful appearance. A facelift is usually
performed under general anesthesia, or in some cases, local
injections of anesthesia with intravenous sedation can be used.
Asian upper and lower Blepharoplasty with peri-orbital fat
Known as Asian double eyelid surgery, this procedure aims
to surgically create creases in the eyelids of Asian patients.
Generally, the Asian lid starts at the crease very close to the
eyelashes. As the crease becomes further away from the nose, it gets
larger until it reaches the midpoint of the pupil. In effect, the
fold runs parallel to the eyelash origin. In upper eyelid
blepharoplasty, a fine incision is made in the pre-existing crease
above each eye. A crescent of excess skin and muscle is then
removed, as well as all fat (puffiness) that is present.
augmentation is a common procedure performed to improve the balance
of your facial profile and correct a weak chin or receding chin due
to congenital deficiency, age-related bone resorption or facial
trauma. A weak chin can make the nose seem larger or make the neck
appear fatty and undefined. Chin augmentation with an implant is the
procedure of choice for most patients with normally functioning
teeth and jaw development.
