Are you interested in undergoing brow lift to elevate low or droopy brows, but worry that a misstep will leave you looking like a deer in the headlights? You are not alone. Some brow lift candidates delay surgery or put it off altogether because of concerns about looking surprised.
Luckily, the experienced plastic surgeons at Foglietti Fostyk Plastic Surgery are here to put your fears to rest. Read on as Dr. Foglietti and Dr. Fostyk explain how they prevent brow lift patients from looking perpetually shocked or surprised.
What Happens During Brow Lift?
There are several different ways to perform brow lift; Dr. Foglietti and Dr. Fostyk specialize in the endoscopic approach.
During endoscopic brow lift, the surgeon creates a series of small incisions behind the hairline and inserts several small instruments, including a specially made camera attached to a tiny telescope. This instrument, known as an endoscope, projects images of the internal structures of the brow and forehead onto a screen in the operating room.
Using the endoscope and other instruments, the surgeon carefully repositions the brows into a higher and more youthful position on the face. The surgeon also smooths the skin of the forehead to minimize wrinkles and furrows between the brows.
Your Choice of Surgeon Matters
The key to great-looking brow lift results is selecting an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon.
Both Dr. Foglietti and Dr. Fostyk have an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy and an eye for detail. They know that lifting the eyebrows even a few millimeters can produce great results: it will help you appear younger and more pleasant without looking surprised or frozen.
A surgeon who does not have the proper training or skillset may overcorrect by elevating your brows too high on the face or positioning the tail of your brow too low in relation to the rest of your brow. Either one of these mistakes may leave you looking “overdone.”
Open communication is also crucial to achieving great-looking results with brow lift. You and your surgeon should speak candidly prior to surgery about your cosmetic goals and the results you can reasonably expect. Many patients share your concerns about looking shocked or surprised after surgery; a surgeon like Dr. Foglietti or Dr. Fostyk will quickly put these fears to rest.
