Brow Lift New Jersey – Procedure and Recovery for Men
The brow area of the face consists of the eyebrow and forehead region. This area is important because it conveys a lot of facial expressions and emotion. Although you probably don’t think about it, you move your eyebrows and crinkle your forehead when you are laughing, surprised or even confused. Unfortunately, with age, eyebrows eventually begin to sag and deep creases begin to form on the forehead.
While the aging and lines formed around the brow area are a natural process, it can hinder your ability to accurately express yourself and cause a loss of aesthetics in the face. Sagging brows can make you appear tired or angry when you’re not. Or, if it has happened prematurely, a sagging brow can make you appear much older than you are. If you have a sagging brow and would like to appear youthful and more energized, an endoscopic brow lift might be a great option for you.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 2,034 men underwent a forehead lift in 2012, making it one of the top ten male cosmetic surgery procedures last year.
During the procedure, three small incisions are made hidden within the hair. The incisions are used to lift three major areas of the face:
- The eyebrows
- “Hooding” of the upper eyelid skin
- The forehead
Dr. Parker uses an endoscope, a small illuminated optic instrument that allows him to look under the skin, to guide his movements during the process. This allows for smaller incisions and faster healing time overall.
Brow Lift procedures at Parker Center for Plastic Surgery are commonly combined with Facelift, eyelid rejuvenation,or chin augmentation. It is performed under general anesthesia and patients are usually discharged an hour after completing surgery.
