When it comes to the face, many factors can detract from your appearance. Some people may seem to have heavy upper eyelids, but actually, this fullness is due to sagging eyebrows rather than excess eyelid skin. Droopy eyebrows can make you appear angry, sad, or tired. Clients who have had surgery by Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Anita Mandal in Palm Beach for brow lift can trust that she can enhance and revitalize their appearance while maintaining a natural look.
Your Facial Rejuvenation
Whether you were born with low set eyebrows or your brows have descended due to gravity and aging, you may be a candidate for an endoscopic brow lift. A Palm Beach County facial specialist, Dr. Mandal can also use this procedure to soften prominent frown lines and forehead creases, thus making your eyes appear more open and refreshed , giving your upper face a more youthful appearance.
In some people, only the outer portion of the brow is droopy and needs to be lifted. A lateral brow lift can be performed and is less invasive with quicker recovery. In others, a brow lift should be done in combination with eyelid surgery . Since each person ages differently, the right combination of procedures are tailored to the individual’s needs after a thorough consultation. You are encouraged to meet with Dr. Mandal to review your options, discuss realistic expectations, and preview your new look with our computerized imaging process.
Brow Lift Surgery
The brow lift is an outpatient procedure that Dr. Mandal performs in about 90 minutes while the patient is under “twilight” anesthesia. Several mini-incisions are made just behind the hairline. Dr. Mandal inserts a very tiny lighted camera called an endoscope through the incisional openings to visualize the tissues under the forehead skin. Special instruments are used to release the eyebrows from the deeper tissues to which they are attached. Hidden sutures are then placed to maintain the eyebrows in their higher position after surgery. For patients needing only a portion of their eyebrow elevated, such as with a lateral or outer brow lift, this procedure can sometimes be done using local anesthesia only.
Since BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily raises the eyebrows, it is often given 1 week before surgery to help keep the brows elevated while they are healing in their new position.
Recovery & Results
Most of the bruising and swelling resolves within 2 weeks of brow lift surgery. Sutures are removed in 10 days, at which point you may return to most routine activities. Dr. Mandal’s typical brow lift patients are extremely happy with their refreshed, more welcoming facial appearance. The subtle yet impressive changes from surgical enhancement often lead to increased confidence in the work place as well as on a social level.
