In this procedure the muscles and ligaments of the face are repaired beneath the skin and the excess skin is then pulled back and removed. There is typically a scar left behind the ears. Many times an endoscopic brow lift and blepharoplasty are also completed during this procedure.
Cosmetic Surgery of the Eyes (Blepharoplasty, Forehead/Brow Lift)
A blepharoplasty removes either the loose skin on the upper eyelids, the bags and fat under the lower eyelids or all at the same time. A forehead or brow lift can be done by making a large incision, or more commonly, endoscopically. With the endoscopic brow lift, there are no visible scars.
This procedure removes fat from under the jaw and neck area or other areas in the facial region where excess fat is negatively affecting facial and neck beauty and balance AND transfers the fat into areas where needed. These areas are frequently the marionette lines around the lips and nose, nasal furrows at the bridge of the nose and shallow areas in the cheek bone areas. These secondary areas are treated eliminating or reducing lines and wrinkle and enhancing areas like the cheek bone area or wherever enhancement is needed. A significant benefit is the use of one’s own tissue and cost reduction because more costly fillers are not necessary. Patients can return to work in just a few days with this in office procedure.
