No one expects to be immune from the aging process, but sometimes we show age earlier than we’d like. If your eyes and forehead become droopy and lined, it can be particularly troublesome, because this can cause you to look tired or stern, and that’s not the image you want to convey to others. If you are concerned about your sagging, wrinkled forehead and heavy brows, a brow lift may be a good option for you.
Nathan E. Nachlas, M.D., a renowned facial plastic surgeon in Boca Raton, performs brow lifts for patients who would like a more refreshed-looking upper face. After training at Yale and Johns Hopkins, Dr. Nachlas completed a prestigious fellowship in facial plastic surgery in Beverly Hills where he trained in advanced approaches to facial procedures such as brow lifts. His high rate of patient satisfaction can be seen in the number of glowing testimonials from former patients, who applaud both his surgical skill and his caring disposition.
Brow Lift Procedures
A brow lift is performed to elevate sagging brows and smooth out both horizontal and vertical creases in the forehead. Not only is excess, wrinkled skin trimmed away, but frown muscles are also adjusted to relax them. The heavy, scowling appearance of the brow is lifted and softened, resulting in a more “opened up” looking eye area. Dr. Nachlas can rejuvenate your upper face with traditional techniques, newer endoscopic techniques, or a combination approach. People come from Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and even Miami for Dr. Nachlas’s brow lift procedure.
Traditional Brow Lift Procedure
The traditional approach to brow lift is best for patients with deep creases and excess, sagging skin. This surgery requires a long incision within the hairline that runs from one temple to the other over the top of the head. The excess skin is trimmed away, and the forehead muscles are altered for optimal smoothing of lines and wrinkles.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
Newer, endoscopic techniques for brow lifts incorporate fiber optic technology, which allows for the surgery to be accomplished through a series of smaller incisions within the hairline. This approach may be a good option for patients with moderate sagging and wrinkling who do not require the removal of excess skin. Dr. Nachlas will still trim the forehead muscles, which can create a smoother, more elevated brow.
Combination Brow Lift Procedure
In some cases, the best approach may be a combination procedure in which Dr. Nachlas combines endoscopy with traditional brow lift techniques, and possibly other procedures such as eyelid surgery. During your consultation at his Boca Raton office, Dr. Nachlas will discuss your particular anatomy and your facial rejuvenation goals with you, and work closely with you to develop a treatment approach that is best suited to your needs.
