Face lifting new trend '' Elastic band surgery '',
less burden and long lasting
(Anti-Aging surgery Specialized Medical team)
Members of Banobagi Plastic Surgery Clinic Anti-Aging Medical team,
Dr. Han, Kyunam, Dr. Kim Harkyoung, Dr. Noh, Yongjoon,
and Representative Dr. Barn, Jaesang(from left)
are discussing the latest surgical technique, elastic band lifting.
The rumor of 'Anti-aging' demand to look younger
has increased dramatically in recent years.
Recently, Anti-Aging plastic surgery and treatment procedures,
which are represented by Botox, filler and thread lifting, have been repeatedly evolving.
Dr. Barn, Jaesang, head of Banobagi Plastic Surgery Clinic Anti-Aging Medical team said,
"As we continue to keep doing research on better cancer treatment,
we are constantly researching and developing to find safer
and more effective treatments in Anti-Aging field”.
◇ Less burden than thread lifting, definite effect as Face lifting
This is a surgery method from Anti-Aging Medical team’s convinced new treatment,
There were only two main methods of pulling up the droopy skin which were
'Thread lifting' which pulls up the skin with a few threads under the skin,
and 'Facial Lifting', which pulls the entire skin after peeling off the skin tissue.
Both procedures have advantages and disadvantages.
The thread lifting was simple and less burdensome, but it did not last long.
Short term for about 6 months, longest for only about 2 years
and the skin would become saggy again.
This is because the pulling thread tension which pulls up the skin
(tension, pulling force) weakens after it’s inserted in the skin.
When solid yarns from outside the body go under the skin,
usually it becomes mushy within a year.
It’s caused by the fact that our body recognizes the thread as a foreign substance
and is gradually broken down by the reaction of white blood cells.
Although facial lifting is certainly effective and semi-permanent,
it takes a long time for restoration because of skin incision
and desquamation areas are large, and the side effects risk is also huge.
The surgical procedure using elastic band is the emerging technique
in order to overcome these advantages.
It’s a surgery that only takes advantages from the existing thread lifting and facial lifting.
It uses a special material called ‘elastic band’ instead of the thread that loses tension over time.
The elastic band is made of silicone in the middle,
and the embossing polyester is attached on both sides of the silicon.
Unlike the existing thread, it does not get soften in the body,
so it lasts the pulling power permanently.
Since it was originally used as a medical material
for reconstructing joint tendon surgery such as knee,
it plays a tendon role in the body. Dr. Barn, Jaesang said,
"The elastic band has excellent coherence to the human body,
has less irritation feeling and is safe.
Surgical burden is less than facial lifting and recovery period is shorter."
The elastic band lifting was first attempted in Korea four years ago
by a the president Doctor, Dr. Barn, Jaesang,
and about 2000 patients have been operated by him until recently.
All of the patients who have undergone surgery have maintained the lifting effect until now.
Although the number of plastic surgeons performing new elastic band surgery
has increased a little over the past one to two years,
the Plastic Surgery Clinic that has performed surgery for 2000 cases
is only one in Banobagi Plastic Surgery.
◇ Endoscopic procedure to fix forehead and eye wrinkles simultaneously
If elastic band surgery is attempted mainly for cheek and jaw lifting, eye and forehead wrinkles are each performed by Upper Blepharoplasty and forehead lifting. The problem was that in the case of the Upper Blepharoplasty, the distance between the eye and the eyebrow became narrower in the process of cutting the sagging eye area, which caused fierce impression. On the other hand, forehead lifting had a disadvantage which is high burden of surgery.
To improve these advantages,
new techniques have been introduced for the eye and forehead areas.
It’s a method of endoscopes and new implants called ‘endotine’
are used to spread eye and forehead wrinkles at once.
Instead of incise and desquamate the entire forehead as in existing forehead lifting method,
they made small holes in three places
and they input an endoscope to grab and pulls the skin tissue.
The skin tissue is fixed and pulled up with a sort of hook material, called endotine.
This implant approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
to fully absorbed into the body after 9 to 12 months and fully maintain the tension
while pulling up the skin and fix the soft tissues.
Chief Dr. Kim Harkyoung said, "I used to think that only upper blepharoplasty
or eye ptosis correction that could correct the eye to improve drooping eyes,
but when I perform forehead lift, it’s preferable since it has fewer scars
and the result is more natural."
◇ Botox • Filler and upper blepharoplasty are also 'more exquisite'
Techniques are also evolving in the most commonly implemented procedures
such as upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty, Botox and filler.
What is as important as removing wrinkles is maintaining the original impression.
Chief Dr. Han, Kyunam as the eye specialist said,
"The Anti-Aging surgery in Banobagi Plastic Surgery
is not pursuing 'slow-aging' rather than 'anti-aging'.
Since we couldn’t stop aging, we are trying to grow old slowly.”
Dr. Noh, Yongjoon who takes in charge of Botox, Filler and thread lifting said,
“It is consider as simple operation,
but it requires a very detailed technique to make a natural result.
Careful selection and treatment eventually lead to safe and effective results."
