Brow vs bleph? Lift the brow and/or the upper eyelid with plastic surgery

Women and men typically start to consider upper eyelid surgery due to natural aging in their 40’s. While some patients may benefit from eyelid surgery at an earlier age, patients more commonly have upper eyelid area surgery after age 40. An upper blepharoplasty (i.e eyelid surgery) removes excess skin and fat from the top eyelid, but does not directly change the eyebrow. A brow lift lifts the eyebrow, primarily from the sides of the brow but may also improve the area closer to the nose too. For some patients, a brow lift alone may help improve the appearance of the … Continue reading »

We often hear from our Washington DC patients that not only do they want aesthetic treatments to improve current wrinkles, but they also want to help prevent future wrinkles down the road.

Botox® Brow Lift – Lifting the eyebrow without cosmetic surgery

Appropriately shaped, arched, or elevated eyebrows are sought after by many patients seeking to enhance their appearance. The numerous stand alone eyebrow threading and waxing businesses speak to the popularity of having good looking eyebrows. However, a trip to the plastic surgeon’s office may be required to alter the position or shape of the eyebrow. Wrinkle relaxers (i.e. Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®) can be used to alter the shape and/or position of the eyebrows, not just smooth the skin. – Houtan Chaboki, MD The eyebrow naturally falls and droops with age, with the sides of the brow being most affected.

Minimally invasive procedures lead in plastic surgery offices

Less is more when it comes to plastic surgery. Whether it’s non-surgical treatments or plastic surgery, patients want to look themselves, but only better. The quicker recovery with generally less downtime and bruising with minimally invasive procedures are more appealing too. Aesthetic procedures of Botox Cosmetic® and hyaluronic acid fillers (ex. Restylane®, Juvederm®, Belotero®) continue to grow and be the most popular non-surgical treatments among men and women. This 2015 survey was performed by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of its members, board certified surgeons who specialize in plastic surgery of the face, head, and neck. It’s … Continue reading »
