brow liftAs you age, your face can develop excess tissue in a wide variety of places. There are many factors that influence where that excess skin appears, but one common place is the brow area. That ridge just above your eyes is susceptible to excess skin for a few reasons, but mostly because it’s an obstacle at which your skin can collect (think of the way rainstorms are diverted by mountains).
That might be why you’ve noticed a few wrinkles above your eyes. They might take the form of “concentration lines” or they might scatter themselves haphazardly around your brow. And that can be bad news for your eyes: excess skin around your eyes can make you look sleepy, fatigued, depressed, and, of course, older than you’d like to look.
After all, excess skin has weight. And that weight can push down on your upper eyelids, causing further problems (including obscuring your vision). Fortuitously, there is a new technique for eliminating drooping eyebrows that could help patients look younger and see better.
A New Technique for Treating Drooping Eyebrows
Developed by Dr. Mehryar Ray Taban, out of Beverly Hills, this new technique achieved consistently good results. The technique, known as temporal incision with subcutaneous dissection towards the lateral brow (that’s a mouthful!) is a minimally invasive procedure. That means patients can expect to heal relatively quickly (compared to more invasive techniques).
And because of the placement of incision, most scars are hidden along the hairline. For a browlift, this is an excellent option, as it can be combined with blepharoplasty or other facial plastic surgery procedures. Combining a brow lift with an eyelid lift is a great way to achieve the overall effect you desire.
Advantages of New Techniques
The human face can be a complicated piece of anatomy. There are many important pieces—your eyes, your nose, your ears, and so on—that all need to work together. Or, perhaps it would be better to say that they’re all working together whether we like it or not.
So a drooping forehead can make your smile less convincing, even though you’re as happy as you’ve ever been. That’s why it’s important that surgeons are always coming up with new ways to improve the look of the brow. Past areas of innovation have included the following:
- Making a less invasive to promote faster healing
- Making brow lift results look more natural, to blend in with the rest of the face
- Creating a brow lift technique that allows a brow lift to be combined with several other procedures
- Maximizing both patient comfort and patient results
At the end of the day, innovation in the field of brow lifts and other facial surgery is important because it gives patients more options—more ways to get the final look that they’re after.
Dr. Rostami and Dr. Nazemzadeh both keep up to date with the absolute latest in the field of facial plastic surgery, ensuring that their patients have access to the very best innovative and novel techniques. But it’s important to ensure those techniques are worth their salt—so that way patients really do get what they’re promised.
The Impact of a Brow Lift on Your Face
The benefits of brow lift procedures can be quite potent. Because the excess skin over the brow can be so oppressive, eliminating that skin can lead to a significant decrease in how “aged” you look. By removing that excess skin that causes your brow to “droop” into your field of vision, you may also experience more light and be able to see better.
