A brow lift can be performed with the incision through the skin immediately above the brow, at the hairline or above the hairline, depending on the patient's needs and desires. Most cosmetic brow lift incisions are hidden behind the hairline. Brow lifts can be done as microsurgery, using an instrument called an endoscope that allows your doctor to see the pertinent anatomy, as well as be able to use micro-surgical instruments. This can mean smaller, less noticeable incisions. Virtually all patients go home after a brow lift, with no overnight hospital stay. A responsible adult will need to stay with you if sedation or general anesthesia is used.
Your eyes are often the first thing people notice about your face. In fact, many people feel eyes are a person's most attractive feature. Beyond appearances, your eyelids work to protect your eyes. Over time, your upper or lower eyelids may droop. These changes can make your eyes look less attractive. Some people have other problems, such as trouble seeing with severely drooping eyelids. This facial "miscommunication" can cause problems for some people at home and in the workplace.
Eyelid surgery to improve your appearance is called blepharoplasty. The procedure can be performed in our surgery suite and virtually all patients go home the same day. It can be done under local anesthesia, "twilight anesthesia", or general anesthesia if you prefer.
Eyelid surgery is intended to reduce the appearance of sagging or droopy eyelids. Your doctor will make tiny incisions in the lid's natural folds, and then close them with fine sutures to avoid noticeable scarring. We may also use a laser to minimize swelling and bruising, sculpting the area and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.CONTACT US
