When to Consider Eyebrow Enhancement
LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO
Beginning as early as our 20s and 30s, you might notice forehead wrinkles. Genetics, gravity, and advancing age can make your face look older than you are. Your eyebrows can lower over time, resulting in a tired and stern or angry appearance. Elevating the eyebrows and reducing upper eyelid heaviness helps open up the eyes.
By elevating your forehead and repositioning your eyebrows, double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Ponsky can take years off your appearance, with a furrowed brow or sagging upper eyelids transforming into a youthful, rested look. Our surgical offerings are customized to your needs and goals to reveal a more pleasant and approachable expression. Our modern and minimally invasive endoscopic enhancement creates results similar to the traditional approach but with the added benefit of a quicker recovery period with less discomfort, producing pleasing, natural-looking results.
How It Helps
Eyebrow enhancement will improve your appearance beyond your eye area. Besides elevating a drooping brow, eyebrow enhancement can contribute to a more youthful appearance overall. Forehead wrinkles and creases will appear smoother, and excess skin or tissue hanging over the eyes will be lifted, opening the eyes. Frown lines between the brows can also be addressed. While eyebrow enhancement focuses on the upper face, the overall effect of the procedure reveals a more well-rested facial expression.
What to expect before an eyebrow enhancement
As a top Cleveland facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Diana Ponsky will begin your consultation by asking about your goals and expectations and then discuss any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. After examining, photographing, and analyzing your face, she will discuss potential options, a recommended course of treatment, and outcomes, risks, or potential complications.
What to expect during eyebrow enhancement
Anesthesia will be administered so that you will be comfortable during the procedure, with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Depending upon your pre-surgical consult, one of two types of incisions will be made. If the incision is endoscopic, a thin camera and narrow instruments will be placed through a series of small incisions within the hairline. The tissue and muscle beneath the skin are adjusted precisely, correcting visible creases and furrows in the forehead. A brow lift with a hairline incision involves a longer incision through which hair eventually grows. The forehead skin is lifted, and any muscle adjustment can be made under direct visualization. The resulting scar from a coronal or pretrichial brow lift is well concealed by the hair.
What to expect after an eyebrow enhancement
You may want to stay home from work for about a week or two, depending on the surgical approach. Ice should be applied to your forehead and eyes for the first few days to control swelling. Elevate your head to promote healing, including sleeping on your back at a slight elevation. Some bruising and numbness around your eyes and brow are common and will subside over time. Be careful with strain on your body, such as vigorous activity or heavy lifting, for at least two weeks. Suture removal at your first post-surgical visit will be quick and uncomplicated. Plan on regular check-ups for 1 year after surgery to monitor results and healing.
