Lip sculpting

Designed to repair the distortion caused by prior silicone or Biopolymer® injections, lip sculpting is regularly performed by Dr. Epstein. Silicone is the typical cause of lip scarring and distortion, characterized by irregular bumps and asymmetries, but a permanent filler called Biopolymer® which is particularly popular in Latin America as well as south Florida but also done worldwide can also be the culprit.

The distortion typically does not develop until years after the silicone was injected, and sometimes can respond to injections of steroids that suppress the scarring. However, when this does not occur, oftentimes patients have no choice but to have the lips repaired by what Dr. Epstein calls the lip sculpting procedure, in which he meticulously excises small portions of the lip to bring them back to a more normal aesthetic shape and size. Anesthesia is usually local with oral sedation, but can be twilight sedation.

Hairline Lowering/Forehead Shortening Surgery

Some women are born with a high hairline, sometimes it can be the result of progressive hair loss or plastic surgery. In select cases, particularly when the result of genetics, the forehead can be significantly reduced in height by a surgical procedure that can advance and lower the overly high hairline by as much as one to two inches, depending on scalp laxity. This surgical hairline advancement (SHA) is usually limited to women with flexible scalps, and is unsurpassed, when performed properly, for a dramatic virtually instantaneous lowering of the hairline in a single 90-minute surgical procedure, usually performed under twilight sedation.

The alternative to the SHA is hair grafting, which is a much more commonly performed procedure involving the transplanting of usually as many as 2000 individual hair grafts in a single surgery.

Given Dr. Epstein’s background as a facial plastic surgeon specializing in hair restoration, he is able to perform both procedures with unsurpassed excellence and experience.

Facial Rejuvenation Surgery

From liposculpting to blepharoplasty and facelifts and browlifts, there is a range of surgeries that can correct a patient’s concerns within the neck and face region. Dr. Epstein takes a tailored approach with each patient, addressing the unique aging process, anatomy, and goals, in both men and women

As an experienced surgeon focusing exclusively on the neck upwards, Dr. Epstein is able to consistently achieve a more youthful, rested appearance.

Upper lip lift

With age, or as a result of genetics, the upper lip usually becomes longer and thinner. By removing the excess upper lip skin through a well-concealed incision right underneath the nose, this elongation can be permanently reversed. Dr. Epstein designs the incision so that it actually extends into the floor of each nostril, further helping to conceal it.

The result of this specialty procedure is a poutier lip that reveals more upper teeth. Additional aesthetic benefits include restoring a more feminine diamond shape to the upper lip. This procedure is not a replacement for fillers, for it accomplishes more plus is not temporary.

Usually performed under local anesthesia nerve block and oral sedation, the upper lip lift can also be done under twilight sedation if desired
