The Byun Method
Dr. Byun has been offering the “Byun Method” for 20 years. Tired of seeing the effects of overcorrection with Botox and fillers and facelifts that left patients looking artificial or frozen, Dr. Byun created a new way to achieve a more natural look. His commonsense approach involves elevating the descended cheek pad that includes muscle and fat through tiny incisions and lifting the facial muscles back to their original position. This is done using endoscope and done below the muscle level. Once the muscle finds its original position then he performs skin re draping without cutting away any skin.
A pioneer in his field, Dr. Byun first introduced this technique to the American College of Surgeons and has continued perfecting it over the past 20 years. The results prove themselves to be revolutionary. There is no cutting skin away with his procedure; therefore, no chance for nerve damage. He uses a special dissection technique with endoscope to magnify the nerves and vessels. Dr. Byun utilizes sutures to connect delicate tissues, a technique he researched and developed himself. He also uses a specialized bioabsorbable sutures for midface.
Dr. Byun stands behind his modern approach to plastic surgery and slowing down the signs of aging and enhancing one’s appearance. Often called “the doctor with the magic hands,” his work is very unique. For more information about this innovative procedure, visit MidfaceLift.com.
