Forehead wrinkles and increasing heaviness of the eyebrows are some of the unwelcome signs of aging that begin appearing on our faces in our late 30’s and early 40’s. These developments can make you appear tired, angry or sad to the outside world when this is not how you actually feel. A well-executed browlift can rejuvenate your forehead, brows and eyes so that you look younger and more refreshed without appearing as if you have had any surgery.
During your initial complimentary consultation, in addition to getting your medical history including any risk factors, Dr. Nima will take the time to discuss your issues, concerns and set reasonable expectations for any procedure. At this time, he will also examine your face with a keen, artful eye as well as take measurements. We will also take before photos for your records.
For your comfort, we perform a browlift using IV sedation anesthesia. Dr. Nima commences the procedure by placing precise, small incisions in the scalp, just behind your hairline. He carefully inserts an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera) through the incisions, allowing him to see underneath the skin via video image. Dr. Nima then skillfully releases skin and soft tissue from the brow bone, gently lifting and securing them for long-lasting results.
A bandage may be applied to minimize post-surgical swelling and bruising. The less invasive form of lift combined with Dr. Nima’s surgical skill reduces your recovery time to about 1 week.
Of course, for a variety of reasons, not every patient is a candidate for surgery. In such cases, Dr. Nima has mastered cutting-edge alternatives. By way of example, skillfully and carefully targeted botox and dermal filler injections have helped many. As always, though, not every individual is an optimal candidate for these procedures. One’s eligibility will be determined during the initial exams and consultations. Assuming, however, that Dr. Nima’s exam clears a patient for a non-surgical procedure and that a patient is comfortable with this alternative, the results they attain are not short lived. Improvements that last from six to twelve months are the norm.
Following your browlift, maintaining great skin will highlight your results, and keep you looking refreshed and youthful. We highly encourage you to speak with our Aesthetician about the best products to keep your skin taught and moisturized. Also, we may recommend that you sustain your rejuvenated look with a program of periodic injectable treatments down the road.
