Facial enhancement is a delicate art, that, if performed correctly, will leave you looking rejuvenated instead of artificial, windswept, or “frozen.” Dr. Michael BYUN is a Top Chicago facelift doctor with extensive experience with facial enhancement and has performed countless facelift surgeries throughout his career.

Midface Lift

You might not be feeling it, but are you looking tired, sad, or upset? Does your facial structure seem to have an emotion of its own? Is your face not representative of the younger person inside? If you answered yes to any of these, we might have a solution for you!

Reverse Facelift

A Reverse Facelift is Dr. BYUN’s own terminology. Dr. BYUN encounters many surgeries that were done by previous surgeons who did not understand the physiology of the muscle positioning. Dr. BYUN is reversing this technique from the inside/midline to the nose, and up vertically, moving the skin and muscles Up and In.

Central Facelift

Dr. BYUN has specialized repairing drooping muscles and skin due to aging by using his signature Central Facelift. In this process, the muscles and tissues are moved Up and In, or centrally. Returning those tissues and muscles to where they once were brings you back to you.

Expression Facelift

Over the years, many people state that they look sad, angry, tired, or mean as they age. Most of these people also recognize that they don’t feel the way they look. Chicago’s Top Plastic Surgeon Dr. BYUN is the master of his famous Expression Lift, which matches your outside to your inside.


Would you like to improve your nose by giving it a more desirable shape? Do you find your nose to be too short or long, lacking a nasal bridge, or too wide? There is a solution to help you improve your profile.

Brow Lift

A forehead lift, or brow lift, can relieve that same “tired” look that is treated by a facelift, except it targets a different area of the face. It alleviates those drooping eyebrows, the “hood” over your eyes, forehead furrows, and frown lines, giving the forehead and unblemished appearance.


“The eyes are the window to the soul,” the famous saying goes. Or, as Dr. BYUN says, “the eyes are the window to your age.” Make sure your windows are in optimal condition and awaken your youth with Dr. BYUN’s famous blepharoplasty, with minimal bruising and recovery in mere days.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Would you like to improve the appearance of your upper eyelids? You may be a candidate for double eyelid blepharoplasty, where you can obtain a more desired eye shape with a small amount of skin resection.

Mandible Surgery

Much as how removal and excision can help bring balance to the profile of a face, addition and augmentation can do the same. This often happens in the form of mandible augmentation, where addition happens in the chin or cheek.

Lip Augmentation

Our lips thin as we age and the volume loss creates wrinkles around the mouth and the appearance of premature aging. By plumping up the lips and reducing fine lines around the mouth, we can now restore youthful features and make a remarkable difference in appearance.


Tummy Tuck

Also known as a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, which tightens the muscles of the abdomen. For anyone who is seeking a flatter, better-defined abdomen, an abdominoplasty is the right procedure for you.

Arm Lift

Often, conventional thigh lifts by amateur surgeons leave very visible scars along your groin area. Other surgeons often think that they can aggressively lift the thigh like a tube, but this is simply not the case. 

Butt Augmentation

For men and women who desire a more balanced physique or simply want curves where there are none, buttock implants are a real option. This procedure improves buttock contour by increasing protrusion and molding the buttock into a rounder and fuller shape, giving the appearance of a “lift” in the buttock area. 


Vaser-liposuction may the solution you are looking for. This is not liposuction. It is a process where fat cells are selectively melted using an ultrasonic device that emits 36,000 pulses per second, bursting and vaporizing the fat cells. This is a new, cutting-edge approach to face and body contouring.


Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the size and shape of a breast. This procedure involves inserting an implant behind each breast to increase the bust size by one or more bra cup sizes.

Breast Lift

This procedure is to lift sagging breasts and does not excise or add tissue. Typically, recipients are women who have had their nipple fall beneath the breast and had collapse of the breast tissue due to weight loss, aging, or pregnancy.

Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction of a breast removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures for Dr. BYUN. New medical techniques and technology makes it possible to create a breast almost indistinguishable from a natural breast. 

Breast Reduction

Disproportionately large breasts can limit a woman’s freedom, making some physical activities impractical or uncomfortable. Bra straps may chafe against the skin and put a strain on shoulders, potentially impacting circulation.



BOTOX® is a non-surgical, physician-administered, injectable treatment that can smooth modern to severe frown lines around the brows in patients from the age of 18 to 65. It is the only treatment of its type to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a procedure used with a chemical solution that improves the texture of ones face and helps remove the damaged layers of the skin.


Dermabrasion is a general procedure that can reduce the appearance of scars, some facial flaws or wrinkles by exfolliating and removing the topmost layers of skin with a rotating facial brush.

Dermal Spin™

The Dermal Spin™ technique uses natural products taken from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun. The spinning allows the blood to be separated into different components. Platelets are a blood component that help tissue heal and grow new cells.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser Skin resurfacing is known to be a technique for dramatically reducing any sun damage to the skin, uneven colored pigments, wrinkles, and reducing any aging lines.


Microdermabrasion is a safe, comprehensive, progressive approach to skin care that has been approved by the FDA. This non-surgical, facial smoothing treatment will enhance the condition of the skin, combat the signs of aging, and help correct sun-damaged skin.


Automated micro-needling with the Eclipse Micropen Elite (also referred to as collagen induction therapy) is a treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-treatment zones in the skin. These small injuries stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to help resurface the skin.

Skin Products

Enhance your natural image with the latest medical technology in a setting of spa-like nurturing. In a world where special treatment sometimes seems a thing of the past, Dr. Michael BYUN offers an alternative.


Trauma Reconstruction Surgery

The first time the modern world entered into war, plastic surgery emerged to prove itself and its significance as a medical field. During World War I surgeons and doctors utilized skill and new advances to heal and restore the bodies, faces, and spirits of our wounded troops. Where general practitioners lack the intricate expertise and artistic vision of the true human face and body, plastic surgeons excel.
