Browlift

Author: Patrick Byrne, MD FACS

Browlift
A browlift is a procedure that is performed to elevate the eyebrows.  Lifting low eyebrows can make the eyes appear larger and more open, create a more beautiful shape to the brows, and lesson the lines and wrinkles of the forehead. These changes can produce a remarkable effect – particularly if done in a skillful manner to produce a subtle and natural appearing result. It is most commonly performed in men and women in their 50’s, 60’s, and beyond. The brows must not be lifted too much so as to avoid an unnatural, surprised look. This can be avoided by careful surgical technique.

Botox- Cosmetic

Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport)
In 1987, Dr. Jean Carruthers, a Vancouver oculoplastic surgeon, discovered that she could inject botulinum toxin A into muscles around the eye and temporarily smooth out wrinkles. Four years later, she and her husband Dr. Alastair Carruthers, a dermatologist, published their findings. This report launched what would become the most commonly performed aesthetic treatment.

Facial Paralysis

Facial Paralysis
Facial paralysis – weakness of the facial muscles responsible for eye blinking and facial expression – can be partial or complete. There are a variety of causes, but regardless of the cause, it is a devastating condition. In most cases of facial paralysis, one side of the face is affected and the other is spared.  As a result, the appearance of the face is not symmetric (asymmetric). This lack of symmetry (asymmetry) is accentuated whenever the person moves the face as part of normal facial expression. For example, the smile is uneven, one side of the face droops, or the eyebrows aren’t the same level.

Temporal Lift

Temporal Brow Lift

Temporal Browlift

A temporal browlift is a procedure that is performed to elevate the outer portion of the eyebrows only.  Unlike the more common endoscopi browlift or coronal browlift, the medial (inner) part of the eyebrow cannot be lifted with a temporal brow lift. Some surgeons fell that lifting the outer eyebrows is the only part of the brow that needs to be lifted in order to create a more beautiful shape to the brows that looks natural and aesthetically pleasing.

 

Anatomy

The ideal brow in women has an arch with the outer third that rests above the level of the eye socket rim while the forehead is at rest. In men, the brows tend to be flatter and rest at the rim.

 

The eyebrows are lifted by the forehead (frontalis) muscle and are pulled down by the crow's feet muscle (orbicularis) and the frown line (corrugator) muscle.

Dysport

Author: Patrick Byrne, MD FACS

Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport)
Dysport is an injectable drug used to lesson wrinkles on the face. It is made of botulinum toxin type A.  Dysport can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by constricting the movement of muscles that it is injected into. It is the same active agent as Botox, a very popular wrinkle reducer. Dysport was approved for use in the United States in 2009.
