UNDERSTANDING FACIAL AGING
Facial Aging is a dynamic process that involves changes in the bone structure, soft tissues and skin. Older techniques fail to address all levels of aging changes leaving an unnatural hollow but "pulled-tight" look, with poor results. A customized 3-D treatment plan is the best way to achieve a natural rejuvenated look.
UPPER AND LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY
One of the first aging changes is the appearance of "puffiness" or extra fullness in the upper eyelids, and "bags", dark circles or eye hollows in the lower eyelids. Eyelid blepharoplasty can restore youthful contours by removing excess skin, repositioning the eyelid fat, and smoothing the eyelid-cheek junction. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty often includes laser skin resurfacing to rejuvenate the skin.
BROW AND FOREHEAD LIFT
Heavy eyebrows can contribute to fullness of the eyelids and forehead wrinkling. An eyebrow, or forehead lift can restore the eyebrows to the natural position and eliminate forehead wrinkles. We offer the most advanced techniques, including endoscopic brow and forehead lifting to achieve the best results.
The cheeks tend to sag with age and loss of elasticity. A midface lift can restore youthful contour to the cheeks and lower eyelids. This is usually done in conjunction with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Surgical correction is performed by utilizing eyelid incisions or the endoscopic technique.
FACIAL FAT TRANSFER
A hallmark of aging is loss of fat and “volume” in the face which leads to wrinkles, hollowness, thin lips, sunken cheeks, or skin depressions. Fat transfer restores youthful volume by transferring fat from the stomach, thighs, or buttocks to provide a lasting result.
