As most people age, the first locations on their faces to feel the effects of sagging skin are the forehead and brow area. This skin starts to slowly become less firm, which leads to drooping. This can have a cascading affect on a person’s eyelids and the skin under the eyes as well and cause them to hang lower as a result. As the eyelids start to sag, most people will compensate for the slight blockage this causes to their vision by raising their eyebrows or wrinkling their forehead to stretch the skin back slightly. While this does help to correct for their sight being blocked, it can cause larger wrinkles to appear on their forehead over time.
In addition to the drooping skin affecting a patient’s vision, it tends to make them look older and may leave them with a tired appearance. Even though these visual cues may be slight, it’s something that others may notice and can affect a person’s self-esteem. There are a range of simple procedures generally called a brow and forehead lift that can help alleviate these concerns and remove wrinkles from a forehead or loose skin around the eyes. These treatments are simple and relatively painless with a quick recovery time.
Dr. Sadati offers a wide range of treatment options and will meet with each patient individually to determine the most appropriate course of action for their individual concerns.
Because of his vast experience in Orange County performing these procedures, he has the skill needed to help rectify any concern a patient may have. Every patient will need this individual care since the aging process will affect everyone differently and is greatly impacted by a person’s diet and lifestyle.
Some brow and forehead lift procedures can be done under local anesthetic during an outpatient visit and others are performed under a general anesthesia and may require a slightly longer recovery procedure. The choice depends on many factors and is typically based on the size and location of area that needs attention, the age and general health of the patient and their preferences. In addition to traditional cosmetic surgery techniques, Dr. Sadati also uses advanced endoscopic procedures to help minimize the recovery time needed. Most patients will have several options to choose from to help improve their appearance with a brow and forehead lift and Dr. Sadati can explain the benefits that each of them may offer.
