A More Youthful & Refreshed Appearance
An area of the face that can contribute to an older, tired appearance and is often overlooked in med is the eyebrows. As sagging occurs, the upper eyelids appear heavier with more hooded appearance. By raising the eyebrows to a normal position, patients will appear more awake and refreshed. To learn more about the brow lift for men in Washington DC, call board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Jules Feledy or Dr. Eric Maiorino to schedule a consultation.
The Best Fit For You
The majority of brow lift patients are between 40 and 60 years old. However, a brow lift can be helpful for anyone dealing with sagging skin above the brow or deep forehead wrinkles. The forehead muscles are often over-activated to help pull up the eyebrows so many patients notice an increase in forehead wrinkling or worsening brow/eyelid sagging towards the end of the day as those muscles begin to tire out.
For your brow lift procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia. Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will begin your brow lift by making an incision just below your hairline in order to minimize visibility of any scarring. The skin is then re-draped over your forehead for smooth contouring and excess skin is trimmed away. This is known as pretrichial brow lift. Depending on certain factors related to your eyebrow sagging and forehead, other approaches may be suggested such as endoscopic brow lift or direct brow lift. A brow lift is often combined with additional facial plastic surgeries in order to address signs of aging in other areas of the face During your consultation with either Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino, you may also decide to undergo eyelid surgery, a facelift and/or neck lift. These can all be performed in one surgery or you may choose to have them completed in different sessions.
Following your brow lift surgery, it may take a week or so before returning to your everyday routine. Most patients are able to return to work after about ten days. More strenuous activity and exercise should be limited for the first month until you are back to your usual strength. It may take a couple of weeks for any bruising or swelling to fade away. Once you are all healed, you will be able to enjoy the rejuvenating results of your surgery.
"I had noticeable wrinkles on my forehead for a few years and my friends constantly asking me if I'm ok. I guess, I just looked sad all the time! I decided to look for a plastic surgeon who specialized in brow lifts for men. Dr. Feledy is such an amazing surgeon. I look and feel great and now my friends just ask me what I changed in my life and tell me I look great!”
