Mini & Endoscopic Brow Lift
When you begin to understand just how much a drooping forehead can contribute to an aged look, you may be among the many men and women in Denver considering a brow lift with Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath. The procedure can have quite a positive impact on your appearance and it normally has a brief impact on daily routines.
If you're like most people, when your face started to show signs of aging you began to think about whether you'd be a good candidate for a face lift in Denver. As frustration with your appearance grew, you may have also started thinking about the tired, sad, look of your eyes. You may be surprised to learn that the descent of your brow may be the main culprit.
To see for yourself, lift the edges of your forehead with your fingertips just enough to raise the outer portion of your eyebrows to a more youthful position. You're likely to see your eyes open up again, with more of your eyelid suddenly visible and an overall brighter appearance. You can enhance your eye appearance even more when you choose a Denver, Colorado blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery.
If you're still not certain which facial rejuvenation procedures are best for you, don't worry. Your consultation with Denver plastic surgeons Dr. Andrew Wolfe and Dr. Steven Vath is designed to answer that very question. Request your consultation online at The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Cherry Creek or in Golden.
Your Mini Brow Lift in Denver with Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath
Most men and women are very satisfied with a mini brow lift, the least invasive of the forehead procedures commonly performed today. This surgery, also called a lateral subcutaneous brow lift, requires two incisions along the hairline above the outer portion of the eyebrow. Your surgeon lifts your skin, avoiding underlying nerves, trims away a small portion of excess skin and closes the incisions with tiny sutures or staples.
With a gentle, controlled elevation of the outer forehead skin, the mini brow lift raises your eyebrows and opens up your eyes without creating a "surprised" or artificial look. There's rarely any numbness of the scalp and no elongation of the forehead because your hairline is left undisturbed.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
Some patients may be good candidates for an endoscopic brow lift. In this procedure, several incisions, usually five, are made behind the hairline and a special scope and instruments are used to elevate the forehead off the underlying bone. The brow is then repositioned and fixed at a higher level using small screws.
Although the endoscopic brow lift may be a good option for some patients, Dr. Vath and Dr. Wolfe cite several possible disadvantages of this procedure. An endoscopic brow lift may cause an undesired elevation of the inner brow, areas of scalp numbness, less precise control over the ultimate position of the outer brow, discomfort at the screw fixation points and a less long-lasting result. For these reasons, Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Vath usually prefer the mini brow lift for their Denver patients.
