Byun's Midface Lift Technique
technique was presented in video form at the National
Plastic Surgery Meeting at the American College of Surgeons
in Orlando in the May of 1998. The delicate aging process
of the midface involves the relationships between the
lower eye, the cheek area, and the corner of the mouth.
Thus the process of one area affects the other. The concept
of Dr Byun's facelift/face lift is to restore the natural youthful

will have to come back to see Dr.Byun one week post surgery
to have all sutures removed. The Endotine Coapt Suture

You will feel it but no one will know its there. You will
experience significant swelling 24-72 hours post surgery.
Also, significant bruising will occur. Make-up may be
applied 3 days post surgery to confine bruising. You should
allow 3-6 months for complete healing and 3-4 weeks until
returning to work with light duty.

will I know I won't have that "wind-tunnel," tight look?
surgeons rely on a tight pull in their technique, resulting

Dr. Byun works on the various facets of the face individually,
restoring contour and turning back time gently.
Our goal is to return vitality to your natural appearance.
