A forehead lift or “browlift” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed, and cheery look to the forehead, eye brows and upper eyelid areas. By removing excess skin and muscle, the procedure corrects drooping brows, improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make you look angry, sad or tired, and tightening the skin of the upper eyelid.
The incisions are well hidden along the frontal hairline or in the hair, and with the us e of an endoscope (a small camera that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions), the incisions are almost impossible to see. The particular type of incision to be used is dependent on your goals and desires.
Also, a forehead lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a facelift to provide a smoother, overall balanced look to the eyes and face. Brow lift results in a more youthful forehead and brows.
Our delicate touch and advanced endoscopic techniques mean less discomfort, less bruising and a faster recovery.
Droopy upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can make you look older and more tired than you feel. “Blepharoplasty,” or eyelid surgery, is the most commonly performed facial plastic surgical procedure. By removing small amounts of excess skin and fat, our Savannah plastic surgeons can transform the eyelid region to a more youthful and refreshed look.
We can correct loose skin around the eyes while virtually eliminating visible scarring. If you are wondering how eyelid surgery can improve your appearance, you need to know how the surgery is performed and what to expect.
The upper eyelid incision is hidden in the natural crease of the eyelid and is barely perceptible. Small amounts of skin, muscle and fat are removed to recreate a youthful eyelid crease and fold. Most lower eyelid incisions are made within the conjunctiva of the eye, thus preventing any scarring on the skin. Fine wrinkles can be addressed by laser resurfacing.
The surgery usually takes around an hour, and many patients elect to have both the upper and lower eyelids addressed at the same time. Sometimes a facelift is also combined with eyelid lift for a complete facial rejuvenation.
