Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Procedures
Raising your brows with surgery can be done at the same time as an eyelid lift or on its own. It is a long-lasting procedure that appears to open the eyes and alleviate heaviness above the eyes. Dr. Braunstein takes a conservative approach to ensure the results do not appear over-done.
Heavy or low-positioned eyebrows occur with aging. Browplasty raises the brow and forehead using one of several techniques. The endoscopic method uses small incisions behind the hairline to elevate the brow. Other approaches employ a long incision behind or within the hairline (bicoronal or trichophytic brow lift), an incision in the temple hair (temporal lift), or an incision in the upper eyelid (internal browplasty or browpexy). The correct procedure for you is determined based on your goals and the structure of your hairline, eyebrows, and eyelids.
In your consultation, Dr. Braunstein reviews the eyebrow rejuvenation options and she gives expert recommendations to help you look younger and more refreshed without looking “done”.
Why Have a Facelift?
As we age, skin begins to lose elasticity, and facial tissues lose volume. Eventually, this results in “jowls” on the lower face, deep wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck. While this is a natural part of growing older, patients who are bothered by these signs of aging may find a facelift to be a good solution. If any of the following describe you, a facelift is an option to consider:
You feel self-conscious about the way your face & neck look due to sagging skin
You wear turtlenecks and scarves not because you want to, but because you want to hide your aging neck
When you see your reflection, you feel that your face makes you look much older than you feel
You feel that an aging appearance is negatively affecting your career or personal relationships
Dr. Braunstein is nothing short of AMAZING. Went to her for chalazion surgery. She performed it in the office - it was quick, painless and absolutely perfect! She has such a pleasant and calm demeanor and wonderful bedside manner. She is highly skilled as is evident by my wonderful results. Not a drop of bruising and no pain afterwards at ALL. Best doctor hands down!! Thank you Dr. Braunstein!
One word! AWESOME!!
You’ve been a great doctor. Keep doing what you do to help so many people. I was overcome with thankfulness when I thought of how much the surgery you gave me changed my life. Thank you so much for the great care and surgery you performed on me.
