Forehead Lift Rhode Island

The eyes are the window to the soul, and the first thing we notice when meeting another person. Our eyes are so important in creating a first impression that they may mean the difference between a friendly encounter and none at all. Dr. Enzer’s years of specialized training as an ophthalmologist and plastic surgeon give him an unparalleled advantage in treating concerns such as heavy lids, low set brows, or bags under the eyes, and will work with you to achieve the youthful look you desire.

Eyelid Surgery

Are you suffering from heavy upper eyelids? Do people always say you look tired? Do you feel like you have a “visor” interfering with your vision? Do you notice that you are raising your brows so high to see that by the end of the day your eyes won’t stay open? If this sounds familiar, let Dr. Enzer help you see the world clearly again.

What can I expect during my consultation?

During your consultation with Dr. Enzer, he will listen to your concerns and after a thorough examination let you know what the best surgical option will be for you. For many patients there will be multiple options depending on the cause of why your eyelids are drooping. Some patients may be eligible for insurance to cover the cost of upper eyelid surgery if the main concern is a blockage of peripheral vision. The difference between what is considered cosmetic and what your insurance company may cover will also be defined during your consultation, as well as what you could expect from each of the two approaches.

What is eyelid surgery like?

Upper eyelid surgery involves the surgical removal of excess skin and fat tissue to give you a more rested and/or youthful appearance to the eyes. This surgery is usually performed in an outpatient facility and under a mild anesthesia to make sure that you are comfortable. After your surgery you should expect your activities to be limited for a couple of weeks. Bruising and swelling are common, but pain is minimal for most patients. Every patient heals at a different rate, and Dr. Enzer will see patients after their surgery to discuss what to expect for the remainder of the post-operative period.

Dr. Enzer has helped develop and perfect the techniques for these procedures, and has taught hundreds of other doctors, both nationally and internationally, how to safely perform these procedures.

Mid-Face Lifts

Do you have dark circles under your eyes? If so, you should be interested in a mid-face lift. Mid-face lifting, also known as cheek or SOOF lift is performed through micro-incisions near the outer corners of the eyes to raise the cheek fat pad. More importantly, this smoothes the transition zone between the eyes and cheek, which most people see as dark circles under their eyes. It can also soften folds around the cheek and the mouth. Mid-face lifting can even help lift jowls in the jawline and help restore a more youthful heart shape to the face.

Mid-face lifting is still a relatively new addition to the face-lifting family, having only truly begun around the year 2000. Dr. Enzer himself developed the multi-vectored planed (MVP) suspender flap, which he believes to be the safest and most successful means of mid-face lifting. He was invited to present his technique to over a thousand plastic surgeons in Chicago, October 2005. Now with over ten years of experience with this technique we see that this procedure has very long lasting success.

Forehead and Brow Lifts

Dr. Enzer offers a variety of brow and forehead lifting techniques, including the newest endoscopic procedure. Dr. Enzer helped pioneer the new minimally invasive endoscopic forehead lift procedure and develop the technique to where it is today. Oftentimes these procedures are performed as a same-day outpatient surgery. The laser may also be utilized to minimize bruising and swelling. Dr. Enzer has taught his techniques to hundreds of other doctors, both nationally and internationally.

Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction is designed to give you a better neck profile for a more youthful appearance. By re-contouring the region underneath the chin and reducing excess fat in the jowl area, a new and more youthful profile can emerge. The procedure itself also creates an internal scar that tightens and lifts the treatment area.

Neck liposuction is best suited for young to middle-aged people, and those with good skin elasticity. Dr. Enzer can perform the procedure safely in the office with minimal downtime (usually 3 to 5 days), or in an outpatient surgical facility if sedation is needed.

For people with excessively loose or very heavy skin in the neck area, a lower facelift would be the procedure of choice. Dr. Enzer will evaluate you during your initial consultation and discuss which procedures will be most beneficial for you.
