Refreshed and rested. A brow lift can subtly open up your eyes -- no surprised looks here.
This Seattle brow lift patient came to Dr. Thomas Lamperti wanting to address the overall deflated appearance to her face since successfully loosing over 100 pounds. She had severely drooping eyelid skin and baggy lower eyelids. Dr. Lamperti performed an endoscopic brow lift combined with skin only upper eyelid blepharoplasty to remove the excess eyelid skin. He then performed a lower eyelid blepharoplasty to reduce the excess, protruding fat pads. This was combined with fat grafting to the lower eyelid and cheek area to re-inflate the soft tissues and a more youthful rounded cheek and better frames her eyes. In addition to the blepharoplasty and fat grafting, Dr. Lamperti also performed a facelift and necklift.
Direct Brow Lift Used To Remove Excess Drooping Skin From Upper Eyelids
This Seattle brow lift patient was referred to Dr. Lamperti by her optometrist to see what could be done to improve the gradually worsening vision blockage she had been troubled by for a few years. Dr. Lamperti noted that her main issue was actually very droopy, or ptotic, eyebrows that was leading to a significant amount of excess eyelid skin falling down over her field of vision and bmaking it hard to see. With manual elevation of the patient's eyebrows to a normal position the patient's eyelid skin was found to be much improved. Dr. Lamperti discussed the treatment options which included a direct browlift, endoscopic browlift or coronal brow lift. The patient opted to have a direct brow lift under local anesthesia in which Dr. Lamperti remove an ellipse of skin just above each eye brow. The scar was placed in an existing skin crease in each area to help hide the scars. In the 3 month after photos you can see how the patient's eyebrows are now nicely, but naturally, elevated without a deer in the headlights appearance. Dr. Lamperti also was careful to create a pleasing arch to the patient's eyebrows as well. The oblique views best illustrate the improvement realized by merely lifting the eyebrows and lifting the perceived excess eyelid skin upward and improving the upper eyelid show without actually needing a blepharoplasty.
Direct Forehead Lift and Upper Lid Blepharoplasty
This Seattle brow lift patient was having chronic problems seeing due to the severe excess skin she had blocking her vision. The patient had so much extra eyelid skin that blepharoplasty alone would bot have been able to adequately treat her problem. As a result Dr. Lamperti suggested a combined direct brow lift in which skin was removed from above both eyebrows with a functional upper eyelid blepharoplasty in which the residual excess eyelid skin was removed. In the 4 month after photos you can note how the patient has much improvement to her eyelids and no more visual field blockage. With time Dr. Lamperti would expect the eyebrow to actually drops down a bit further as the forehead scar relaxes over the first year after surgery.
Facial Feminization Mid-Forehead Brow Lift Before And After
This Seattle brow lift patient came to Dr. Lamperti looking to acheive a more feminine facial appearing to go along with her process of male to female transitioning. She had several procedures to go along with this goal including a direct mid-forehead lift in which skin was removed from the forehead region and the brow directly elevated to lift the eyebrows. A few months after surgery a planned second staged scar dermabrasion was also done to further improve scar appearance. In the approximately 2 year after photos you can see how the patient's eyebrows are nicely elevated, especially at the outer aspects where they were quite droopy. you can also see how the patient's scars have healed quite well within her forehead creases.
