Have People Been Asking If You’re Getting Enough Sleep?

The results show everywhere, including your forehead. On your forehead those issues — sagging skin, lines, drooping brows — can give people dealing with you the wrong impression. Aging brows can make them think you’re perpetually tired, sad, even angry. And you may have just hit a two-foot powder day at Alta!
But a brow lift with Dr. Saltz can put an end to these false impressions, giving your upper face a more youthful appearance.
Since brow lifts target the upper third of the face, the procedure can be combined with other surgeries such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facelifts (which target the middle and lower face) to rejuvenate the entire face.
Would a brow lift help you?
Sagging brows can be just a sign of age, or they can be something to thank your mother for! Most of our brow lift patients at Saltz Plastic Surgery are between the ages of 40 and 60 and feature lined or inelastic skin on their foreheads.
You can kind of demo a brow lift. Stand in front of the mirror and place the palms of your hands to the sides of your eyes above the eyebrows. Now pull the skin back from the eyes. That tightened skin and raising of the forehead is basically what a brow lift will accomplish.
What is the technique Dr. Saltz uses?
Endoscopic brow lift — In this method, Dr. Saltz makes from three to five short incisions, each less than one inch, behind the hairline. Then an endoscope is inserted into one of the incisions. The endoscope enables Dr. Saltz to see beneath the skin without making the long incision of the traditional method. Through the other incisions, he then lifts the skin, removes tissue, and adjusts muscles as needed.
There will be numbness and discomfort at the incision sites. Numbness will give way to itching as the forehead heals. This usually passes within six months. The swelling does take time to fully resolve itself.
