NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Robert Guida, offers his patients an effective browlift procedure that requires less recovery time than the traditional "open" method.
Traditionally, browlift procedures have been accompanied by considerable recovery time and required that time be taken off from work and other daily activities. However, the newer browlift procedure, known as an endoscopic lift, offers substantial results with minimal downtime.
As facial skin ages, it begins to lose its elasticity and starts to sag in certain areas. Wrinkles and other signs of aging begin to manifest on the skin's surface, and one area that tends to reveal a person's age is located directly above the eyes. Aging skin in this area causes the eyebrows to begin to droop beyond the line of the brow, creating a hooding effect. This also creates deep creases on the forehead.
Surgeon Dr. Robert A. Guida, M.D., P.C., whose office is located in Manhattan, offers a solution to droopy eyebrows and forehead wrinkling. With an endoscopic browlift, he helps patients achieve a young and natural-looking appearance around the brow and forehead. Patients often combine brow lifts with a facelift procedure in order to achieve full facial rejuvenation.
To achieve each patient's desired results, Dr. Guida makes use of the most advanced surgical technology, including an operating telescope that he utilizes during his browlift procedures. This method is superior to the traditional "open" method, as it results in smaller incisions and allows for a quicker recovery time.
A perfect candidate for this procedure, according to Dr. Guida, is a patient with eyebrows that are positioned below the bony orbital rim. This will make the hooding of the upper eyebrow skin visible in the upper eyelid area. The skin in that area will be thicker than the skin on the upper eyelid, but some patients may need both browplasty and eyelid surgery, a procedure known as blepharoplasty, to achieve their desired cosmetic effect.
Dr. Guida explains that patients can typically return to their normal everyday activities after only a week post surgery. This is a vast improvement, as traditional browlift surgery required weeks of recovery time. Dr. Guida's endoscopic browlift surgery offers considerable results within a convenient timeframe.
