Dr. Steve Byrd will be presenting a live surgery demonstration at Mercy Hospital in Miami Florida in February, 2010. Head of Plastic Surgery at Children’s Hospital in Dallas and Professor at UTSW Medical School, he also has a Pediatric Plastic Surgery office in Dallas, Texas focusing mainly on cleft lip/cleft palate, and craniofacial deformities in infants and children. His adult Cosmetic Surgery office is the location where he utilizes the Endoscopic Brow Midface lift that he developed and will be presenting at the Baker Gordon Educational Symposium next month.
The Endoscopic Brow Midface Lift, or “EBMF” is a much less invasive way to treat aging face patients. As a relatively new surgeon he became determined to find a way to improve on the traditional facelift procedure which employed a dramatic ear-to-ear incision that is the trademark of most standard facelift surgeries. The EBMF approach requires a few very small incisions behind the hairline into which an endoscope can be inserted to reach and repair the facial foundation in the brow and midface region. The advantages are several:
less chance of infection
less trauma to the tissue and the patient
“Improving the technique is important, but it wouldn’t have mattered if the results of the procedure weren’t appropriate. The Endoscopic Brow Midface procedure results in an elegant, well-rested outcome for patients. Patients love the results.” according to Dr. Byrd.
The Baker Gordon Symposium will kick off with a lecture by Dr. Byrd on the “Endoscopic Brow and Midface Lifting – Consistent Control of the Lateral Canthus and Lid-Cheek Junction”, followed by a panel discussion of the role of the EBMF in facial rejuvenation. The two and a half hour surgery follows with Dr. Byrd demonstrating the innovative technique to many of the leading plastic surgeons from across the United States.
The 44th Annual Baker Gordon Educational Symposium is sponsored by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the University of Miami School of Medicine in cooperation with Mercy Hospital in Miami.
