A high arched eyebrow is a sign of youth and can highlight your eyes and draw attention to them. A droopy eyebrow can hood your eyelids, draw attention away from your eyes, and is more typical of the male brow.
A forehead lift is recommended for people whose eyebrows have fallen with time and whose forehead has deep wrinkles. It is a permanent way to improve the deep horizontal and vertical grooves on the forehead that develop after years of facial expression.
An individualized consultation and evaluation with Las Vegas facial / plastic surgeon
Dr. Myint is the only way to determine if you are a candidate for forehead or brow lift.
The operation is performed endoscopically and takes about two hours. you are awake with intravenous sedation or completely asleep under general anesthesia. Through five or six small incisions in the scalp, the deep grooves can be improved and the eyebrows raised. At the end of the surgery, small sutures and surgical staples are placed to close the incision. These are removed in seven to ten days. You are able to go home the same day as surgery.
Las Vegas facial / plastic surgeon Dr. Myint will be happy to discuss this procedure in detail during your initial consultation.
You will be able to return to work in ten days and will be able to resume your routine activities and exercise at three weeks. There is very little swelling or bruising, but you will notice some numbness in the forehead and scalp for several months. Most of our patients do not find this a major concern. Your improved look will be subtle to everyone but you. Many people say how well rested you look, or ask if you've changed your hairstyle. This procedure alone can make you look anywhere from five to ten years younger.
If your forehead grooves are not too deep, or you wish to discuss non-surgical improvements, then perhaps BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin) injections or chemical peels might be for you.
