If you come to our Miami-area plastic surgery practice with “frown lines” around your eyes or excess skin pushing your face into a stern expression, you may assume that you need an eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, in order to fix your expression. While this may be the case, we have found that patients tend to focus on the immediate “problem area” rather than understanding what is causing the problems. In many cases, a brow lift will tighten the skin on your forehead that is weighing down your eyebrows.
You may feel apprehensive about the prospect of getting a brow lift, and to a degree this makes sense. After all, no botched plastic surgery is quite as noticeable as a brow lift, and walking by a supermarket checkout aisle is sure to show you a large number of celebrities who look perpetually surprised due to over-ambitious anti-aging surgeries. However, many of these botched jobs are the result of patients being unwilling to listen to their surgeons’ recommendations, or surgeons unwilling to argue with a famous patient.
So long as you find a talented facial surgeon, like our own Dr. Jon Harrell, and are willing to listen to his recommendations, a brow lift can be a subtle but effective way to make yourself look more refreshed, more energetic, and more cheerful. And if you are bothered by excess skin around your eyes, a blepharoplasty procedure can get your eyelids looking the way they used to.
The question of whether to get blepharoplasty or a brow lift is always a decision best made on a case-by-case basis. To learn which of these procedures would get the best results for you, contact Dr. Jon Harrell for an initial consultation at the Weston Center, located near Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.
