The brow lift is a way to lift the upper eyelids without removing any excess skin. Dr. Rodriguez, a Yale trained plastic surgeon, discusses why the browlift is the new eyelift. He’s been performing the brow lift procedure for over 20 years.
Hi my name is Ricardo Rodriguez and I’m the medical director cosmeticsearch. net. I train in Yale University where I taught a few years and now i have been in practice for 20 years.
Today we’re going to talk about the eye lift versus the brow lift so that you understand better why I choose most of the time the brow lift.
I’m going to explain to you why I choose the brow lift.
The first thing a patient does as they start getting older they start narrowing the focus of their eyes and closing this concentric muscle to focus the light better on their eyes. This causes that color drop in the brow and it’s very gradual.
The first thing you notice is that you have a little bit of excess here of skin and it’s more noticeable when the patient gets tired or at the end of the day and as a matter of fact people tell me, I have this tired look.
Now after a while when the brow has been down for a while the excess skin start putting weight on the eyelashes and then there’s a reflex where you start pulling back on the brow and then you start creating these line.
Therefore the solution to both problems is to put the brow where it belong. Now if you lift the brow gently to color where it should be right above the brow bone here you notice two things number one her whole face getting more refreshed look because the first place people look at is the eyes secondly there’s no longer any excess skin so even though I did not push it in in the upper eyelid that improves
Finally when the brow rest here these lines will disappear natural for me the brow lift is really the new eyelift technically the procedure is done very noninvasively with very short downtime which will give a very refreshed natural-looking result.
