Dr. Hui performs customized brow lift surgery for patients who suffer from loose skin around the brows that causes them to droop over the eyes. Brow lift is designed to raise the brow, reposition the sagging tissue, and modify the muscle function that may be causing deep creases and wrinkles in the brows. Brow lift can also be used to correct asymmetric eyebrows, enhance the shape of low eyebrows and address a sagging forehead.
If the cheeks are drooping due to aging or other factors, the condition can be corrected with a cheek lift. The procedure involves surgical separation of the malar fat pad, adjoining muscle and surrounding tissue from the cheekbone, and raising them into a more youthful position. Once this is done, the areas are permanently re-sutured to the cheekbone. The procedure can be performed using minor incisions inside the gum line of the mouth or along the hairline near the temple.
Facial Fat Transfer
Facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removal of spare fat from other areas of the body and injecting that fat into the depleted areas of the face. Facial fat transfer may appear to be a simple procedure, but if the injection technique is incorrect, it may lead to serious aesthetic concerns.
