When you meet someone new or see a friend or colleague, where do your eyes naturally go? To their face, of course. When most people think of loved ones, they typically visualize their face. So it’s no wonder that we want our face to convey a healthy, youthful appearance. One’s whole outlook and confidence level can be influenced be the reflection we see in the mirror.
Dr. G. performs several procedures and uses a range of products that each address a different issue and produce distinct results. At your private consultation at hisSan Diego plastic surgery center, your plastic surgeon will help you make choices that will yield the best result for your unique situation.
The soft tissue and skin of our brows tend to droop and sag as we age. The changing position of the brows and deepening furrows and creases may impart an appearance of fatigue or even anger. Though certain frown lines can be treated with injectables such as BOTOX, a longer lasting result may be attained with a Brow Lift.
A Brow Lift raises the forehead, brows and skin around the eyes to give you a more rested, alert, and youthful appearance. A brow lift is most often used to improve such facial characteristics as drooping eyebrows, “hooded” or drooping skin at the outer part of the eyes, furrowed forehead, and frown lines at the top of the nose.
Limited and strategically placed incisions are made and the plastic surgeon then lifts the skin and removes and/or repositions excess tissue. The muscles that were causing the forehead to crease can be relaxed, and the skin is trimmed and redraped to smooth out major wrinkles and creases.
A variation to the traditional Brow Lift is the Endoscopic Lift. For some patients, this minimally invasive procedure is an option. An endoscope – a miniature pencil-like camera that is attached to a monitor is inserted through the incisions to view the tissues beneath the skin. Dr. G works through the endoscope to visualize and modify the tissues and muscle under the skin.
Dr. G. has the creativity and skill to achieve what you envision!
