Eyes and Brows
Our eyes and brows are an important feature of our face, therefore, they are often the first area of the face to show the signs of aging. Surgery in this area can reduce the signs of aging and help to restore a youthful, healthy look.
UPPER & LOWER EYELIDS
- Correct drooping of the eyelids
- Remove puffy tissue above the eyes
- Eliminate puffy bags under the eyes
- Correct a drooping lower eyelid and loose skin
- Lift sagging eyebrows to their original, youthful position
- Reshape flattened eyebrows to create a natural arch
- Smooth some forehead wrinkles, specially the “11’s”
- Tighten the entire upper one-third of the face
- Different techniques in surgery
We often think of the eyes due to the skin’s sensitive nature and propensity for developing fine lines and wrinkles. The brows undergo changes during the aging process as well. As the skin on the forehead begins to lose elasticity, the brows can descend until they no longer frame the eyes properly. When this happens, the entire upper portion of the face can take on an aging, tired, and sometimes sad or angry appearance.
A blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) with or without a browlift can correct these issues, as well as help restore the upper one-third of the face to a more youthful and rested look that encompasses well-rested, natural looking eyes, but also a well positioned brow with minimal lateral hooding.
It is extremely important to be conservative when performing rejuvenating surgery of the upper face. In performing the surgery, Dr. Mascaró will never distort the shape of the eye or cause too much of a hollowed look. Correctly performed, rejuvenating surgery is inconspicuous and provides a natural, rested, and brighter appearance to your face.
Dr. Mascaró is well-versed in a variety of open as well as minimally invasive, endoscopic browlift procedures with incisions hidden within or at the hairline. Careful attention is directed at the muscles of the forehead, especially those that cause the deep lines and wrinkles just between and above the eyebrows.
During the procedure we make sure that the new position of the brow looks natural and not too tight. Your eyebrows should always be in a relaxed and natural placement, never in a position that will cause you to look “surprised.”
Post Operative Care
As with most surgeries, you will feel some tenderness, swelling, and bruising after your procedures. You can prevent swelling by using cold compresses or ice packs and elevating your head when you lie down.
The office will provide you with a full packet of both pre and post operative instructions for you to review and be well versed on what to do in order to ensure a prompt, speedy and comfortable recovery.
