MORE INFORMATION

If the lateral third of the eye brow has excessive drooping or what is medically termed "ptosis", then a trans blepharoplasty brow suspension can be utilized. This is often performed in conjunction with upper lid blepharoplasty to provide a more open, rested appearance to the eye. This procedures performed commonly in man as many men have very full, heavy eyebrows which sag laterally. Trans blepharoplasty brow suspension in conjunction with upper lid blepharoplasty can provide a very "refreshed" appearance without the normal signs of surgery. Through a blepharoplasty incision, tissues are elevated over the orbital rim and forehead area. Using a specially developed dissolvable implant, eyebrow tissues are able to be elevated into their more natural position. This can be done very decisive. Special calipers are use which measure to see the thickness of the sheet of paper in order to determine precise position of the eye brows. The incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures. Cold compresses are utilized for the first 48 hours after surgery. Incisions are clean with hydrogen peroxide and bacitracin ointment applied four times a day for the first week. Make up can be use after one week. Most individuals find they can resume normal activities within seven days.
