Brow lift surgery – Men

Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after browlift surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. The goal of browlift surgery is to reposition a droopy eye brow. When the brow falls from its position it can create the appearance of a low brow, excess eyelid skin, droopy eyelid skin, and a tired appearance to the face. This occurs because the distance between the eyelid and brow shortens when the brow droops. It is important to determine if the excess skin is coming from the eyelid itself or is due to a droopy brow creating the false impression of excess skin. Browlift surgery repositions the brow to its original location and helps also smoothen the eyelid skin. In cases where the eyelid skin is in true excess, eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) may also be needed.

What can brow lift correct

Droopy brow

As people age the elasticity and strength of the skin and soft tissue of the eyelid and brow weaken. As gravity continues to pull, the tissue of the brow then droops under its own weight. This is increased by the pull of eye muscles. Brow surgery allows repositioning of the brow to its native location.

Apparent excess eyelid skin

Excess eyelid skin is best addressed by eyelid surgery. However, droopy brows can shorten the distance between the eyebrow and the eyelid and create a false impression of excess skin. In the latter case, browlift may correct this apparent excess.

RECOVERY AND DOWNTIME

This is an ambulatory procedure, where you get to go home the same day. Most patients are actually surprised at having less pain than they expected. There is swelling and bruising for first 7-10 days in the transpalpebral surgery, and about 5-8 days in the endoscopic. Usually no bandage is applied, but ointment is applied for 5 to 7 days. Ice packs and head elevation are encouraged to reduce swelling.

Most patients generally return to work in 1-2 week. Exercise is not allowed until 3 weeks after the surgery.

This is frequently caused by over pull at the moment of brow repositioning. Dr. Rueda’s technique prevents this from happening by releasing the internal brow tissues that allow a soft and natural contouring of the brow in its natural position.
