A Brow Lift May Look Very Different Than You Imagine

Aging affects every part of the face. Usually, we see the signs of aging around the eyes first. When the eyes start to look droopy and heavy, the natural tendency is to use the muscles of the forehead to lift the eyebrows. Doing this makes the eyes appear more open and energetic. We may do all of this without really even thinking about it. Over time, the persistent lifting of the forehead leads to even more lines and creases. To end this vicious cycle, many people think they need a brow or forehead lift. We might disagree.

Brow Lift Surgery

A forehead or brow lift is a surgical procedure in which the brow position is corrected. This upper facelift requires the manual lifting and tightening of the forehead skin and underlying tissue. The loose skin on this part of the face is often referred to as excess. It’s not; it’s just skin that has lost its elasticity and firmness. The appearance of droopiness around the eyes is worsened by a loss of width and fullness in the temple area. Removing tissue does not address this issue.

Dermal Fillers as an Alternative to a Brow Lift

Many people find the idea of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation appealing even though these treatments do necessitate periodic touch-ups. With dermal fillers as a liquid brow lift technique, there is no risk of causing a surprised appearance that cannot be reversed. Using dermal fillers, it also becomes possible to correct the narrowing of the temple that ages the eyes.

Dermal fillers work by increasing the volume of the tissue beneath the skin. Products like Juvéderm achieve this by inserting hyaluronic acid into the dermis where the acid particles bind to water molecules. It’s a simple chemical process that has been proven safe and effective through years of clinical use. To lift the brow line and smooth wrinkles on the forehead, dermal filler is inserted at the temples, along the brow, and directly beneath horizontal creases. The hyaluronic acid is gently massaged to create even, natural-looking volume in the upper face that lasts for up to 12 months.

There’s Still Time to Up Your Wedding Game

Plastic Surgery Procedures Cincinnati OH If you have one or more weddings to attend this summer, you have reason to want to look your best. Weddings are a time of uninhibited celebration. Whether you’re standing beside your best man, your best friend, or are sitting in a sea of well-wishers, you can’t be uninhibited in your celebration if you’re concerned with some aspect of your appearance. We get it. And we can help you address the issues you may have thought were beyond help before the Big Day. Here are a few of the concerns we can address when you visit our Cincinnati office.

Focusing on the Eyes

The tissue around the eyes changes as underlying support diminishes.  A pre-wedding refresher can prevent lines from being what you notice most in all those photos of yourself from the special event. With just a few weeks to spare, it is possible to permanently revitalize the eye area with blepharoplasty on the upper or lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty repositions fatty tissue and trims loose skin to smooth away undereye bags or drooping upper eyelids. With a recovery time of only about 2 weeks, blepharoplasty is a great option for anyone who wants to look amazing for a wedding and long after.

The eyes can be rejuvenated without surgery, too. With only days to spare, a special guest or even a guest of honor can address undereye bags, furrowed brows, worry lines, crow’s feet and droopy eyebrows without concern of lingering side effects. This can be achieved with injectables like Botox and dermal fillers, both of which can reach peak effects in 5 to 7 days.

A Better Body in No Time

A summertime wedding is an excellent opportunity to dress to impress. Often, stubborn weight makes it difficult to choose that special outfit we’d love to wear for an event. You may have spent the last several months eating well and working out to the best of your ability and still be staring at a few extra pockets of fat here and there. It’s not too late to schedule liposuction to resolve this issue before the Big Day. Often, liposuction can be performed using local anesthesia only. Downtime after treatment is needed to help swelling and bruising disappear, but this usually does not extend beyond 2 weeks.
