Nothing gives away our age more than the fine details of our face, more specifically our eyes, cheeks, and brow line. As we age, we begin to develop lines, wrinkles, and even start to experience sagging and drooping skin. This undesirable look can be difficult to accept, especially if these signs of aging start happening prematurely to your delicate skin. Though it is common to develop under-eye bags, drooping eyelids, and sagging skin, it doesn’t mean we have to live with it!
There are several options for refreshing your look, and regaining a more youthful appearance. By addressing your specific problem areas, such as the eyes, cheeks, and brows, you can literally take years off your appearance.
There are two procedures in particular that Dr. Bense has perfected, the iLIDLIFTTM and the Silhouette Lift. These minimally invasive surgical procedures give you the rejuvenated refreshed face you desire. After learning a little more about each procedure, and discussing with Dr. Bense you will be able to decide which treatment is better suited to your needs and would offer you the best possible results.
Also known as Blepharoplasty, iLIDLIFTTM is a blade-free, cosmetic eyelid surgery. The iLIDLIFTTM procedure effectively targets issues of the eye area including lower eye bags, and hooding of the upper eyelids by removing loose skin, surplus fatty tissue, and relaxed muscles in the eyelids. The result is a more youthful, re-energized appearance.
This all-laser procedure is designed to rejuvenate your eyelids, as well as the skin around your eyes. Included in this treatment is a skin tightening and wrinkle removal, or reductions of the lower eyelids. This is known as laser resurfacing.
Surgery can be performed on either the upper and lower lids, or both. A week or two after the procedure, there will be a faint pink scar along the upper eyelid, which will quickly fade over time. Mild bruising and swelling may also occur during the initial recovery period, with stitches reduced 7 days after the procedure. With a little eye makeup most people are able to return to work just one week after their surgery!
Some of the benefits of the upper iLIDLIFTTM include: a more precise procedure with less trauma to the tissue, less surgical time, rapid patient recovery, and very little bruising, which also means less swelling. Benefits of the lower iLIDLIFTTM include: a very precise and easy procedure, no visible skin incision, less irritation and trauma to the eyelid, and fewer complications.
The Silhouette Lift is a non-invasive facelift procedure that give a significant lift to the droopy areas of the brows, cheeks, jowls and neck. Using Silhouette Lift sutures, this procedure helps you return gain a more youthful fresh look, without a general anesthesia, without hospitalization, and without a long recovery time.
Silhouette Lift is a simple outpatient procedure, and is ideal for patients seeking a significant, and long-lasting lift without invasive surgery. This procedure takes approximately one hour!
This minimally invasive procedure, suitable for both men and women, is perfect for patients who have started to see or experience undesirable drooping in their face, but may not want to have a full surgical facelift due to the longer recovery time, or invasiveness of the procedure.
The many benefits of a Silhouette Lift procedure include: correction to signs of aging in the face and neck, very quick recovery time of between 2-4 days to return to normal activities (10 days for the skin to fully heal), and long-lasting results.
