The way that we feel about ourselves may not be the same as the reflection that we see when we look into the mirror. During the aging process changes appear gradually. A facelift (mini, Lifestyle, or full) can help give you a natural, more youthful appearance. The ideal candidate for a facelift is someone who has laxity of skin, excess fat in the neck, wrinkles and deep lines that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Other factors may be the loss of a well-pronounced jaw line, skin that is sagging near the cheekbones and deep wrinkles in the cheeks.
Dr. Hamdan can help you achieve a naturally rejuvenated face by using a technique that involves tightening of the underlying tissues, such as the muscles and fascia, removing excess tissues and re-draping the skin. With today’s innovative techniques, patients can see dramatically improved results with an easier recovery period of generally 7-10 days.
Fresh Autologous Mesenchymal Integration: FAMI is the latest and most refined technique in fat transfer to the depleted areas of the face and neck to provide the rejuvenation needed with out the “lumpiness” and irregularities associated with the traditional fat transfer.
Browlift & Eyelid
Facial expression lines, such as frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet, as well as droopy brows and puffy eyelids can give the false appearance of being angry, tired or sad. A forehead or brow lift can help create a more relaxed appearance. A forehead and brow lift softens the horizontal lines across the forehead and repositions the eyebrows.
Dr. Hamdan uses an endoscopic technique -using a tiny telescope and video imaging to lift the drooping eyebrows and improve the frown lines through a series of small incisions in the hairline. This brow lift technique leaves no visible scars and results in no loss of hair, and allows for a faster recovery period.
Eyelid surgery will help create a well-rested and refreshed appearance. For puffy lower eyelids, surgery can be performed with no visible scars. Through a small incision on the inner aspect of the lower lid, excess fat is removed and the skin can be tightened with a chemical peel or laser treatment. For droopy upper eyelids, an incision is made in a crease for the removal of skin and fat. The skin sutures are removed within 5-7 days and the patient can resume light regular activity.
Our patients often combine eyelid surgery with an endoscopic brow lift for optimum results.
