Everyday our skin is exposed to sunlight and other environmental stressors, which create sun spots, fine surface blood vessels (thread veins) and wrinkles, and can leave skin with a course, worn texture. Even the best cared for skin can betray your age, losing tone and texture with age. With a poor skin care routine, the skin’s own regeneration processes can lead to a build up of dead cells on the skin surface that dull our complexion. Skin rejuvenation uses a wide range of techniques to refresh and revitalise the skin, reversing many of these effects to leave you looking fresher, younger and healthier, with a smooth, flawless, glowing complexion.
A natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance is made possible by skill and experience. Dr. Shahram possesses significant experience in all areas of aesthetic rejuvenation:
Upper Eyelid Surgery – This procedure is aimed at removing excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids. It typically is done under local anaesthesia combined with conscious sedation (“twilight sleep”) and has one of the most rapid recoveries of any facial plastic surgery procedure. The entire procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour and the pain is minimal in most cases. Some minor swelling and bruising may last a few days, and most patients are completely recovered after a week. These procedures may be combined with brow lifts to achieve the best effect.
Lower Eyelid Surgery – This procedure addresses the puffiness of excess fat and the wrinkling of excess skin in the lower eyelids. For those patients with excess fat and little or no excess skin, the procedure can be performed by making the incision inside the eyelid (transconjunctival), avoiding a scar on the skin. For those patients with excess skin and fat, an incision is made just below the eyelashes, where it can be well hidden
Brow Lift – Also called a forehead lift, this procedure corrects a low-positioned or sagging brow, smooths furrows across the forehead and between the brows, and helps restore a more youthful appearance. A forehead lift can be done in a number of ways. The conventional “open” method involves making one continuous incision starting at ear level and moving up around the hairline. The incision is usually made well behind the hairline to hide the scar. I offer innovations in forehead lift procedures including the use of smaller incisions and endoscopic technology to both elevate the eyebrows and reduce frown lines.
Neck Lift – A neck lift offers a smoother and more toned appearance to skin under the chin and neck areas. Newer, less invasive procedures offer shorter operative times, quicker recoveries and can result in significant improvement in the neckline without requiring the extensive surgical dissection of a traditional face lift. Neck lift surgery can be performed in a variety of ways. Typically, an incision is made in front of and behind the ear. The edge of the sagging neck muscles is identified and pulled up and secured. Sometimes this can be done in a minimally invasive way by passing and interlocking two sutures to tighten the muscles of the neck and improve the angle between the chin and jaw. Ask for interlocking neck sling procedure.
