Are you concerned about "bags under your eyes"? Do you feel the extra skin under your eyes, furrowed lids, or sagging upper eyes make you look old or tired? An eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty) enhances the image of your eyes by eliminating excess skin, and smoothing the eye area.
Your customized procedure depends upon your specific needs, combined with your eyelids' general physical condition. We take into consideration the effect of sun damage, your skin's thickness and elasticity, already existing wrinkling, the amount and distribution of eyelid fat, your underlying bone structure, allergies, heredity, and other factors. All of these issues would be discussed in your initial consultation with Dr. Brown.
The most important factors determining the final appearance of your eyes is the skill of Dr. Brown's sense of aesthetics, his extensive understanding of eyelid anatomy and superb technical skills. Back to work recovery is 7 to 10 days with more strenuous activity after 3 weeks.
Face Lift (rhytidectomy): Tighten loose skin, remove wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance.
The facelift is performed by surgically lifting (tightening) facial and neck skin and underlying muscle as well as removing excess fat. This cosmetic procedure is one of the most popular and satisfying. This procedure is one of the most effective ways to reverse some of the effects of sun exposure, gravity, aging and stress. If you are ready to "turn back the clock", you can appear more rested, healthier and vigorous.
A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, brow lift, eyelid contouring or nose shaping. Your final look should be natural and still allow facial expression.
Recovery for back to work is 10 to 14 days with more strenuous activity taking two weeks or more. Together, you and Dr. Brown can determine the best procedures and timing to create a new rejuvenated you.
