Brow Lifting Your Tired Looks Away

Brow LiftAs we age, everything sags. That’s a bogus tradeoff for the wisdom we accumulate over that time. Despite not having the depth of skin as other areas on your body, your brows are no different. Unfortunately, there the sagging is on display for everyone to see every time they talk to you in person.

And oft times, thanks to that sagging, you give off the wrong impressions. Your sagging brows give off the impression that you’re either mad or very tired. Sounds like it’s time to see Dr. Kearney for a brow lift.

The brow lift procedure

The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia, no matter the method employed. Brow lifts can be endoscopic or as an open method. Dr. Kearney also performs mini brow lifts whose goal is to simply give some elevation to the brow area.

Endoscopic procedures use small incisions in the hairline. They offer much faster recovery and less potential for hair loss. Open procedures utilize an incision across the scalp from ear to ear. Sometimes the incision is made on the top of the scalp; other times it is made at the front of the hairline to not disturb the hair.

In every procedure, excess skin is pulled up and removed and then either stapled or sutured to affix the skin to the underlying tissue in its new position. In your consultation with Dr. Kearney, the two of you will discuss the various brow lift options that best suit your needs.

Most patients can return to work in about one week and can resume their normal activities in three to four weeks.

Time to get that perpetual tired look off your forehead? Call Dr. Kearney at 800-671-1951 and let’s discuss a brow lift.

Your health (and ours) is our highest priority so we are making a few changes to our reopening so that you can feel safe and confident coming in to see us. We are of course following all federal and local guidelines such as wearing masks and conducting phone screenings prior to your appointment but we are also implementing the following:

      Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sterilization to not only include exam rooms but also the waiting room, restroom, all doors, counters, etc.

      Offering multiple hand sanitizer locations throughout the office

      Reducing the number of appointments per day as well as our office hours, to limit the number of people in the office, including staff members

      Minimizing patient overlap to allow for proper social distancing

      Testing all surgery patients for COVID-19 at their pre-operative appointments

      Asking patients to leave family members or friends at home, unless they are coming with their primary caregiver. Please leave children at home as well

 

How can you help?

      Come alone to your appointment, unless you need your primary caregiver with you

      Please wear a mask or face covering to your visit and keep it on unless you are asked by Dr. Kearney or an RN to remove it

      Postpone your visit if you have traveled by air or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days

      Use a pen from the holder marked “clean” and put it in the one marked “used” when you’re done

      Use the hand sanitizers in our office

      In the rare case there is someone at the front desk when you come in please take a seat until we call you and maintain proper distance throughout your visit

      Take advantage of our virtual consultations or follow up appointments if it makes you feel more comfortable

Please bear with us as we work to return to our new “normal” and feel free to call or email with any questions. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
