Do you feel that your face no longer reflects your youthful energy? Do you find that people keep assuming that you are tired and fatigued even though you actually feel well-rested? This is a complaint that we hear from many of our patients beginning in their late 30s and early 40s. It is during this age that many people experience a drooping of their brow. This “heaviness” of the brow can make you look perpetually tired, or stern, or even angry. The heavy brow also weighs down on your upper eyelids, causing your eyes to look smaller and tired, as well. If the appearance of your brow is making you appear older than you feel, a brow lift from the Houston cosmetic surgery team at the Belage Center for Facial Plastic Surgery can give you incredible results.
If you are interested in restoring and maintaining a refreshed look, request a consultation for a brow lift at the Belage Center in Houston, TX, or call our office at (713) 978-7878 to schedule an appointment.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
The aging process often leads to the lowering of the brow. This “heaviness” of the brow leads to sagging eyebrows, hood-like skin hanging over the eyes, frown lines between the eyes, as well as wrinkle lines across the forehead. All of these changes can make you look much older than your actual age. Dr. Yalamanchili offers his Houston patients the endoscopic brow lift to address these aging changes in the upper part of the face. Similar to a facelift, the brow lift reverses the effects of gravity on the forehead and upper brow by re-suspending your brow in its youthful, natural position. A brow lift is a great way to combat signs of aging in the upper part of your face.
About Your Brow Lift Surgery
As opposed to the traditional technique for brow lifting, Dr. Yalamanchili performs the brow lift procedure using the latest endoscopic technology. By using a small camera-like instrument called an endoscope, he is able to fully treat the brow and forehead area with a truly minimally invasive technique. Endoscopic brow lift procedures have the great benefit of utilizing very small, hidden incisions, and generally carry decreased risks and a shorter healing time than the traditional method of brow lifting. An additional benefit is that this powerful procedure is now a viable option for many men with receding hairlines (or even extensive hair loss) who previously had not been candidates for the traditional method of brow lifting.
A common concern of patients considering a brow lift procedure is the fear of ending up with an expressionless brow or the surprising appearance that is sometimes associated with bad plastic surgery. Dr. Yalamanchili’s expertise and experience with endoscopic brow lifts, combined with his aesthetic eye for achieving a natural appearance, allows him to offer long-lasting results without making his patients look “done.” His goal is to have your brow lift soften your appearance by relaxing lines and furrows and restoring the vitality and youthfulness to your face. Dr. Yalamanchili has written numerous scientific articles and textbook chapters on this procedure.
Procedures to Complement a Brow Lift
Patients who may benefit from a brow lift are often candidates for eyelid surgery as well. In fact, it is quite common for a patient who comes into a consultation for eyelid concerns to have aging changes in the brow as well. A brow lift is frequently performed in conjunction with an eyelid lift to offer the most comprehensive result in rejuvenating the eyes and the rest of the upper face. Depending on the severity of the aging process around the eyes, an endoscopic midface lift is also commonly performed with the endoscopic brow lift. This procedure is performed through the same small, hidden incisions as the brow lift, and allows Dr. Yalamanchili to rejuvenate the cheek region which can also descend with gravity. Adding additional treatments during the same surgery will not only save time and money but will further enhance their total facial makeover results. If you would like to correct several issues at once, see what additional procedures like the facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift, or fat transfer can do for you in our before-and-after gallery.
