As we grow older, both women and men become concerned with drooping skin and wrinkles in the forehead area. A browlift might be the right cosmetic procedure to consider.
At Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, LLC, we are noticing that more and more younger patients are also considering browlift surgery. They are very good candidates for this surgery and may be choosing this option mainly to improve a low brow (with hooding over the eyes) which may simply be hereditary.
There are several methods to perform this surgery. As you meet with Dr. Cicilion, he will examine your forehead area and discuss the results you may expect to see should you decide on this procedure.
The Endoscopic Browlift:
Doctor Cicilioni will make a few small incisions in the scalp. He will then insert a scope (small camera) and look at the tissues and muscles from a screen. At the same time, he will use another mechanism inserted in another incision to make the required maneuvers to improve the look of the forehead and lift it to provide a more youthful look. The scar will be obscure and hidden in the hairline. If he is operating on a male (with balding) noted, he would make the incision at mid-scalp to hide the scaring in the hair line. The endoscopic browlift is less invasive, takes less time to heal so that you can return to your normal activites sooner than choosing another method
A temporal browlift involves a continuous incision in the hair line above the lateral brow. The incisions in a temporal browlift are usually larger than those of an endoscopic browlift. Once the incision has been made, the skin is then loosened so that the brow can be elevated and the crow’s feet reduced. Following that procedure, the tissues below the brow are then tightened by gently pulling the deeper tissues and removing skin if needed. When the procedure is completed, the scar is usually invisible.
Those patients having a sagging brow with a very high forehead may do best by choosing an “open browlift”. The surgeon would make an incision right along the hairline or just behind the first few hairs. The incision is sometimes beveled or angled to allow hair to grow through the incision for fair skinned patients.
To determine the right browlift procedure, you should consult with the Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, LLC office. At your consultation with our surgeon, you will be screened to determine the appropriate browlift which will be perfect for you. The browlift procedure will cosmetically correct the frown lines and wrinkles in the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. You will appear younger and have a more rested appearance. The browlift surgery normally takes about 2 to 2 and ½ hours
