Over the time, this surgery has changed from invasive techniques to more complex short incision and endoscopic techniques. The Brow Lift procedure normally involves incisions in the hair-bearing scalp and very rarely, incisions may be performed in the forehead, and the upper eyelids.Then, various degrees of undermining of the skin are carried out, and the deeper layers of the forehead are 'lifted'. This results in reversing the effects of gravity and tightening of soft tissues of the forehead . This restores a more youthful contour to the upper face. The outcome is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
In the routine Blepharoplasty, the incisions are made in the natural creases of the upper eyelids and below the eye lashes of the lower eyelid. This procedure was further refined to eliminate the scar on the lower eyelid by making the incision of the lower eyelid on the inside surface (Transconjuctival Blepharoplasty). This procedure is sometimes combined with simultaneous chemical peel.
Both are absorbed by the body and repeat treatments are usually necessary to maintain results. The longer lasting options are AlloDerm, Soft Form and Gore-Tex.
This procedure usually involves an implant. Saline and silicone implants are normally used. The silicone implants continue to develop. The current 5th generation silicone implants have greatly minimized the risks of capsular contracture and leakage.
This procedure usually involves an incision from hip to hip just above the pubic area. The navel is surgically freed from surrounding tissue. Simultaneous liposuction may be carried out in the surrounding areas to ensure a refined abdominal sculpture.
