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.
