)-- Using the Browlift with an upper eyelid incision to address aging in the upper face
With aging, the soft tissues of the face lose the support from the brow and the eye brow takes a lower position. Also with the excess skin of the eyelid, the goal is normally try to lift up our eye brows in order to see better. That leads to chronic writings on the forehead and also lateral hooding on the lateral sides. That, with the loss of subcutaneous fat from the forehead produces the chronic aging signs of the upper forehead which is known as lateral hooding and brow optosis as well as excess eyelid skin. To repair that, there are several options, either chemical denervation of the muscles in order to decrease the amount that the frontalis muscle has to raise the brows, or surgically with a combination of a Browlift
with an upper eyelid incision.
The Browlift with Upper Eyelid Incision Procedure
In many cases if only the eyelid skin is removed, the brow will drop, so Dr. Varkarakis performs a combination of a brow lift with a small incision on one of the lateral sides abut 10cm above the ear and the one on the top of the skull. Both of the incisions are very small and unnoticeable. Once the excess skin is removed, the ligaments from the temporal forehead are detached, they are able to freely mobilize the eyebrow. Once the brow is approximated, the excess skin is removed and some of the fat is repositioned. This will allow the brow to reposition to a more natural state, and remain fixated for longevity.
The end result is a very natural and produces a very high satisfaction to the patient. Also the patients can usually see better after the procedure. To learn more about this eyebrow lift procedure with Dr. Varkarakis, call the office in Miami, Florida to setup a consultation at 305-853-8333.
