Asian Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is performed using the non-incisional or anchor incisional technique. The non-incision technique is best for patients with minor asymmetries and sagging needing to be corrected. The anchor incisional technique is performed on patients looking to create a double eyelid crease. Both of these techniques provide patients with brighter, younger-looking eyes.
Recovery from non-incision eyelid surgery is minimal, lasting roughly two to three days. The recovery from incisional eyelid surgery will take one to two weeks.
Asian Asian Rhinoplasty
Due to ethnic differences, rhinoplasty for Asian patients requires specialized surgical techniques. During Asian rhinoplasty, Dr. Lee will likely need to use cartilage from your ear or a rib graft to increase the nose’s size. By increasing the size, patients can achieve a more attractive, prominent nose.
A splint will be placed on your nose for one week after surgery to hold it in place. Patients can typically return to work as soon as the splint is removed.
Asian Cheek Reduction
Cheek reduction surgery is performed by shaving down the cheekbones and removing the buccal pads. Shaving down the cheekbones gives the face a more contoured look while removing the buccal pads slims out the face. After surgery, Asian patients can expect more defined cheeks and more noticeable facial angles.
Recovery from Asian cheek reduction can last a few weeks. For the first few days after surgery, you may need to be on a liquid diet. You should be able to return to work and other responsibilities in a week.
Asian Jaw Reduction
Depending on their needs for the procedure, patients can either undergo surgical or non-surgical jaw reduction. During surgical jaw reduction, your surgeon manually removes part of the bone using incisions inside the mouth to avoid scarring.
The non-surgical technique uses BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections to minimize the prominence of some facial features. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will determine the best treatment option for you.
Patients can return to work two weeks after surgical jaw reduction. There is virtually no recovery time after non-surgical jaw treatment.
Asian Brow Lift Surgery
During Asian brow lift surgery, small incisions are made behind the hairline. Endoscopic techniques are then used to allow Dr. Lee better visualization of the inner tissues.
Recovery from Asian brow lift surgery varies between patients depending on the correction needed and the specific surgical techniques used. Generally, patients can return to work within one to two weeks after surgery. Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. Dr. Lee will let you know when it is safe.
Depending on their needs for the procedure and degree of facial aging, patients can undergo a lower or mid-facelift. A mid-facelift focuses on the middle portion of the face, whereas a lower facelift will treat the corners of the mouth, jawline, and neck.
Recovery from facelift surgery can be extensive. You will need to wear dressings and bandages for a few days to protect the incision sites and allow for proper healing. Patients can often return to work within one to two weeks, but strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks.
Asian Chin Augmentation
Patients can either undergo chin augmentation with implants or with a sliding genioplasty.
During Asian chin implant surgery, Dr. Lee will insert implants through incisions made on your inner lip to avoid visible scarring. During sliding genioplasty, Dr. Lee cuts the chin bone and moves it forward, making it more prominent.
In addition to improving facial balance and proportion, chin augmentation surgery helps eliminate a double chin and define the jawline.
Patients can return to work one to two weeks after chin augmentation.
