At Romo Plastic Surgery, New York, NY area patients can choose from a variety of surgical and nonsurgical solutions for the face and body. Dr. Thomas Romo III is dedicated to providing options for patients to consider when looking to make changes to the structure or contours of their facial elements. One of the more commonly performed procedures that can help reduce a drooping brow and an angry appearance is that of the eyebrow lift.
What is an eyebrow lift?
The brow lift is different than eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, which can also be utilized to rejuvenate a patient’s facial appearance. It impacts the upper portion of the face, including the forehead and brows. The brow lift can smooth forehead lines and folds while raising the position of the brows on the face. This gives patients a more youthful and alert appearance. To achieve results, Dr. Thomas Romo III repositions, adjusts, or releases muscles in the area. Different techniques are utilized depending on the unique factors of each individual patient. Planning of the procedure is done during a consultation visit at Romo Plastic Surgery.
What causes wrinkles on the forehead and between the brows?
Forehead folds and glabellar lines, also called the “11’s,” are problematic in patients who have experienced skin laxity and regular muscle contractions. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles, which form when patients regularly make certain facial expressions. For patients who have mild to moderate formations, they may be able to consider nonsurgical options such as Botox injections, which inhibit muscle contraction and provide a smoothing of the upper portion of the face. However, those with drooping brows and more serious folds in the area may be better suited for plastic surgery with Dr. Thomas Romo III.
