The upper face holds a lot of weight, so to speak, in the overall appearance of the face. Drooping eyebrows are a common sign of aging, though one that many people don’t expect to occur nearly as early as it does. Sometimes, drooping is subtle and mildly irritating. For some people, though, one eyebrow may droop significantly more than the other, or both eyebrows may droop to degree that affects the upper eyelids. Here, we’ll discuss surgical and non-surgical solutions to help rejuvenate the upper face.
Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery has been popular for many years. An outpatient procedure, the brow lift may be performed using general or local anesthesia. The purpose of this surgical technique is to eliminate creases across the forehead, smooth away frown lines, and restore optimal brow position. For women, the eyebrows should rest right along the upper orbital rim, if not slightly higher. Men’s eyebrows may sit at or just below that bony ridge.
Dr. Fugo uses an endoscopic brow lift technique. This method reduces the amount of scarring that occurs down to two small lines. Incisions are situated behind the hairline where they are not visible whether the hair is worn up or down. Using small endoscopes, the doctor lifts the skin and underlying muscle to a more youthful, attractive position. After a brief recovery period of about 10 days, patients enjoy long-lasting results from this procedure.
Non-surgical treatment for drooping brows may be preferred by patients who want to avoid surgery or who would like to get an idea of what a surgical brow lift may accomplish. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle-reducer that works by relaxing the muscles into which the FDA-approved drug is inserted. In addition to treating drooping brows, Xeomin may also be injected higher on the forehead to smooth horizontal lines or near the central part of the eyebrows to eliminate frown lines.
There are benefits to a non-surgical brow lift, such as the absence of downtime. The results of injectable treatment build over several days, so patients should not expect immediate improvement. The outcome of treatment can last three to six months and may be repeated as often as every three months to maintain the ideal brow position.
A youthful face looks alert and lively. Drooping brows can compromise this. To explore your best brow lift option, contact our plastic surgery office in New Windsor, NY at (845) 565-7040. We would love to schedule a complimentary consultation for you.
Dad tends to be one of the most difficult people to buy for. This makes Father’s Day more challenging than it needs to be. As you think forward about gifts for Father’s Day, you can benefit from thinking outside the box. At our office in New Windsor, NY, we don’t believe in waiting another minute to embody confidence. We help our patients feel more confident about their appearance as quickly as possible. CoolSculpting facilitates this.
Body contouring has historically been a treatment extended to women. As ideologies and technologies have evolved, treatment options have expanded, as well. As we approach Father’s Day, we want to shed light on a treatment that can help Dad feel more confident and satisfied with his body.
CoolSculpting is the most popular body contouring treatment outside of surgery. Before this treatment, unwanted fat was addressed surgically with procedures like liposuction, abdominoplasty, and other techniques. This nonsurgical treatment is a leading form of body contouring because it is proven to achieve consistent results. Patients appreciate that they can schedule treatment amidst their busy lives and not have to worry about post-treatment downtime because there isn’t any. The results of CoolSculpting are another aspect of treatment to appreciate. Body proportions start to noticeably improve after just two weeks and continue to progress for up to 12 weeks.
CoolSculpting in a Nutshell
Body contouring treatments aren’t just for women. Men who have children, as well as men who do not yet answer to “Dad” express interest in non-surgical treatments that address cosmetic concerns. CoolSculpting is one of the most well-known modalities due to its versatility in treating a wide variety of areas, such as:
- Submental region (double chin)
- Upper arms
Why CoolSculpting is Great for Dad
Father’s Day is notoriously difficult. There are several reasons why. The primary reason is that men do not customarily discuss their needs. Dads are now learning that their expression of needs or wants, including the desire to feel more confident in their Dad Bod, is not selfish. As a result, we perform nearly as many surgical and non-surgical body contouring treatments on men as we do women.
CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments available today. The reason is simple; CoolSculpting works. If you are looking for an out-of-the-box gift for Father’s Day next month, consider how CoolSculpting could help the dad in your life feel his absolute best.
