Brow Lift Dallas
Recovery Time: 3-4 weeks
The eyebrow position and shape play important roles in our gender and youthfulness. In men, eyebrows are minimally arches and usually run at the level of the superior orbital rim or the upper bony arch of the eye socket. In women, ideal brow position is a few milimeters above the bony prominent with an arch at the 2/3 point to create a feminine look.
With age, visible changes take place in brow shape and position. The eyebrows descend, some time asymmetrically. This descent can make the eyes look small, and the upper lids appear full. In mild instances, eyebrow descent can be addressed with nonsurgical means such as Botox injection, ie chemical brow lifting. In more severe cases, a surgical approach may be considered.
In appropriate candidates, most often Dr. Saman will prefer an endoscopic brow lift procedure. This minimally invasive approach, has several advantages over the tradiational methods:
- Small incision
- Shorter procedure time
- Less blood loss
- Decreased anesthesia
- Shorter healing time
- No visible scars
In this procedure, Dr. Saman makes 4 small 1-inch incisions well-hidden in the hair bearing areas of the scalp. He then performs the procedure through these incisions using a small camera and specialized instruments. Postoperatively pain is minimal with most patients simply reporting mild discomfort alleviated by pain medication. Patient can usually resume normal activity in only a few days. Some mild bruising and forehead swelling is expected after the procedure and resolved within a few days.
At the time of your consultation with Dr. Saman, your complete facial analysis will be performed, and all risks and benefits of procedure will be discussed. In addition you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and questions with Dr. Saman at length. Photos and computer-simulation will be done at the time of preoperative appointment.
All procedures are performed at the accredited and state-of-the-art surgical facilities in Plano with the care of board-certified anesthesiologists and anesthetists for highest safety and quality of care.
