Is A Brow Lift In Your Future?

Is A Brow Lift In Your Future?

In a culture that celebrates youth, men and women alike are turning to cosmetic procedures to help them maintain a youthful, fresh appearance for as long as possible.

Ideally, your appearance should reflect the way you really feel inside. But as you age, exposure to the sun, loss of skin elasticity and repeated muscle contractions over time combine to drop your brow.

One popular surgical procedure is a BROW LIFT…which is designed to revitalize a sagging, drooping or lined forehead and refresh the area between the brows and the upper eyelids for a less tired, sad, angry look.

If you’ve heard of this procedure and want to know more, read on.

A brow lift can elevate your brows and return them to a more youthful position, taking years off of your appearance.

A brow lift can smooth the horizontal lines on your forehead, making you look less stressed.

A brow lift can erase the vertical creases between your brows. These are the creases that can make you look tired, angry, stressed and worried.

A brow lift can improve the appearance of sagging folds above your eyelids.

A brow lift can reduce the lateral “crow’s feet” beside the eyes.

For some patients, improving the appearance and position of the brows and removing sagging skin above the eyes makes it easier for them to see.

Dr. Buchanan performs this procedure in a minimally invasive manner, using incisions hidden in the hair, in the upper eyelid or just above the brow. The technique depends on your anatomy and generally provides you excellent improvement and fast recovery while maintaining a natural appearance. You should be able to return to your daily activities in a few days with minimal, or easily concealed bruising.

If you’d like to learn more about  brow lifts at the Center for Plastic Surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Buchanan, today at 828-526-3783.

It’s Possible to Maintain a Youthful Look into Your 50’s & Beyond

 Medi-Spa Services Highlands, NCAging gracefully doesn’t have to be impossible. In fact, one of our goals here at the Center For Plastic Surgery is to help everyone age as well and gracefully as possible. If you have reached that point in your life, maybe around your 50’s, where you are looking in the mirror and wondering where your youth went, then let us help you find it again. Although we won’t be able to take you back more than a few decades,  we can reverse considerable aging of your skin, face and body.

Watch Your Skin Care

If your skin care regimen has not  maintained your skin looking young and radiant, then it is time for a medical grade system that will reverse everything that has happened to it. If you have maintained most of your skin’s youthful properties, you may just need to modify a few things to keep it looking healthy and young. Frequently, we don’t realize how our skin is aging until it actually requires a lot of work to reverse the problems. That is why we suggest adding retinol to basic skin care of a gentle cleanser, pH balancer, exfoliant and sun block at about 30 years of age. This can markedly help reduce fine lines and wrinkles later on.

Try Fillers and Botox

If you haven’t already, give fillers and Botox a try. Both of these injectables are great at reversing early facial aging without having to undergo surgery. Plus, because they are more affordable than surgery, they may be a good jumping off point. Botox is also one of the mainstays of preventing wrinkles by correcting the imbalance between thinning skin and increasing muscle function, one of the main contributors to wrinkles and crinkles. Once wrinkles are present, fillers are important also in reversing the problem without laser or peels.

Consider Surgery

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a surgical lift; whether it be a forehead lift, eye tuck or something else. In fact, it’s the best way to get long-lasting results. Our present procedures are easier and have a faster recovery than those in the past.

As you can see, we have more than a few ways to help you maintain or get your youthful look back. To learn more about these and other options, schedule a consultation at our Highlands office by calling us at (828) 526-3783.

Forehead Lift VS. Botox®: How to Decide Which One is Right For You

Forehead Lift Highlands, NCAs a patient, it can sometimes feel overwhelming to look at all of the cosmetic procedures that are available to you. However, here at the Center For Plastic Surgery, we make it our goal to make sure that all of our patients feel confident and informed each and every time they are seen. Two procedures that some of our patients have a hard time choosing between are either a forehead lift or Botox. So, what are the differences and how can you decide which one is right for you?

Botox

If you suffer from fine lines and wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes— welcome to the aging club. Botox can correct these and also elevate the brow as long as the tissues can be held up against gravity. Because of this, Botox has remained one of the most popular non-invasive procedures amongst patients desiring to rejuvenate the brow and peri-orbital area because it is fast, safe, and frequently very effective. Also, because it’s non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about recovery time. The major drawback is that it only lasts an average of 3-6 months and there are some patients that are just not candidates.

Forehead Lift

If you are looking for something that’s a little more permanent than Botox, then a surgical procedure like a forehead lift may be right for you. It is also indicated if the brow is so lax that the forehead muscles cannot elevate it once the muscles pulling it down are eliminated.

When it really comes to choosing between something non-invasive like Botox and something surgical like a forehead lift, it comes down to the type of procedure you want and the results you desire. During your initial consultation, we will help determine which one of these procedures (or even another procedure) is going to give you the best results possible to meet your needs.
