Endoscopic BrowLift - Coronal Browlift

A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a procedure to reduce the angry or tired look of the brows by excising a bit of skin and resituating or lifting the muscles and suturing them higher.

A brow lift is usually performed during the late 20's and upwards. There are endoscopic techniques which do not give a more intensive lift that older patients may need and of course the other techniques, such as the coronal, may be a great option for those who do need extensive lifting.

your surgeon will go over your options that can realistically attain your goals. You will discuss the risks and complications as well as anesthesia choices and fees. As well as what to expect post-operatively. This is the time where you can ask questions regarding your concerns and determine if this surgeon is for you. Do not be afraid to inquire about anything.

After you are anesthetized or sedated, your surgeon will determine the area which need to be excised and where the best incision placements would be for your particular needs. You will have this skin dissected and your surgeon will move and suture your muscle or skin, depending. Or he may excise or clip your corrugator muscle to prohibit or hinder you from frowning in the future. After the internal work has been done your incisions will be sutured and a pressure dressing will be applied. 

Expect to be swollen, tender and possibly bruised. This is very normal so do not be alarmed at the presence of any of the above. If you are in pain, take your prescribed medications and do not forget to take your antibiotics and apply your eye salves if instructed. You will be groggy from the anesthetic this is a normal thing, do not fight it. This helps you rest and adjust to your healing period without memory of pain.

The sutures and/or staples will be removed in a week to 10 days. It may hurt a little but your surgeon can give you injections of a lidocaine (a pain reliever).

The results are immediate but you will be swollen, remember to be patient during the healing period and the full results should be visible in a few months. Any numbness along the incisions should subside by 6 months but may remain indefinitely in some patients. Remember that as each day goes on you will be that much closer to your final result, so be patient.

There is a chance of hematoma (blood clots), numbness from nerve damage and hyperpigmentation (permanent discolorations) caused by the bruising. There may be asymmetry and/or undesired results resulting from your browlift. Possible infections may arise and scarring can be apparent depending on the incision placement. There can be necrosis of the tissues at the incision lines, resulting in additional tissue removal. If performed by an unskilled surgeon, it is very possible to have your skin pulled too tight and result in a very surprised look. Although you may look this way at first, it should relax.

Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty/rhinoseptoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure to reshape the nose. Commonly referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty can correct several cosmetic issues this surgery can have a subtle or dramatic effect on your face.
a septoplasty is a surgery to help clear airway issues and is often combined with rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure dealing with cosemetic issues only where as a rhinoseptoplasty deals with cosmetic issues as well as airway issues

A nosejob is the common name for rhinoplasty the cosmetic surgery.

Rhinoplasty can be performed on anyone, in good health. It is recommended that people do not have a rhinoplasty / nosejob procedure until they have fully grown because they nose shape can continue to grow. A qualified rhinoplasty surgeon will thoroughly evaluate the rhinoplasty candidate to make sure they are a suitable candidate.

Any person may want a subtle or dramatic change to the shape of his/her nose. This may very well be a needed change or it may be an unrealistic demand. Your surgeon will help you achieve a realistic expectation of the final outcome based on the existing shape and the desired look.

Rhinoplasty procedures are considered safe and hundreds of thousands rhinoplasty surgeries are performed every year without complication, but every surgical procedure is associated with a risk for complication that the patient must be aware of. An adverse reaction to anesthesia is always a risk factor with rhinoplasty, in addition to hematoma and tiny, red spots after the procedure that are usually minor but permanent. Your surgeon should always review all the risk factors prior to the procedure.

Rhinoplasty is a permanent cosmetic procedure other than the changes that come with your natural aging how long is the surgical time for rhinoplasty? Rhinoplasty typically takes between two and three hours to perform.

Rhinoplasty is normally performed with a combination of local anesthesia and sedation or with general anesthesia.

Incisions are most often made inside the nose during a rhinoplasty procedure, so you should have no visable scars. Which allows for no scarring. In certain instances, including when a patient wishes to narrow their nostrils, the surgeon will make incisions at the base of the nose. A surgeon that is skilled at performing rhinoplasty procedures will be able to make incisions that are more easily concealed and will fade over time to become barely noticeable.

Rhinoplasty is normally performed as an outpatient procedure and does not require an overnight stay.

The cast is removed approximately 7 days post-operatively. You will feel a slight stiffness in the upper lip as the swelling "moves downward". This will subside in a matter of hours. You must be very careful not to bump it as it is vulnerable to breakage. If you had a rhinoplasty where the nostrils were narrowed you will have your sutures removed. This may sting a bit, especially since it is in a sensitive area. Although most people still feel numb in the tip area and report only minor discomfort.

Following a rhinoplasty procedure you should expect swelling and bruising that could take about three weeks to subside. The swelling and bruising will be the worst right after your surgery for a couple days. Approximately 80% of the swelling and 100% of the discoloration are usually gone by 2-3 weeks after surgery. 90% of the swelling is gone by three months after surgery and the rest slowly disappears over the next year all normal activities will be able to be resumed within one month.

Financing is available for many plastic surgery procedures.

Fillers: Restylane,others

Restylane, Restylane Touch and Restylane Perlane should not be used together with any other injectable implant. The Restylane products should not be injected into an area where a permanent implant has been placed.

Lines, wrinkles and folds:
In general, follow up treatment is needed after 6-12 months.
In general follow up treatment is needed after about 6 months.
But it depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded by the patient and the injection technique of the practitioner. Clinical experience indicates that touch up and follow up treatment will add to the duration.

Yes, after the injection of a Restylane produce, some common injection related reactions might occur. These reactions include erythema, swelling, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the implant site.
Reactions thought to be of a hypersensitivity nature have been reported in about 1 in every 2,000 treatments, Other types of reactions are even more rare.

Treatment with Restylane, Restylane Touch and Restylane Perlane during pregnancy or lactation has not been tested.

Treatment with the products in combination with other drugs and devices has not been tested for.
Theoretically there is no basis for an interaction with commonly used antibiotics.

So far we have seen no connection between patients with allergies and patients that report a reaction to Restylane, Restylane Touch and Restylane Perlane.

There is a risk that the injection process itself, i.e. the insertion of a needle into the skin could contribute to another herpes simplex eruption.

The physician should take a decision about the need for prophylactic treatment in consultation with the patient.

No such problem have been reported.

Clinical experience of treating patients with an autoimmune disease is very limited, but there is no indication of an increased risk. Theoretically there is no reason to assume hat there should be an increased risk in treating these patients with the Restylane products. It is at the discretion of the practitioner to decide in each case, taking into account, e.g. the specific disease, concomitant medications etc.

Unfortunately we do not yet know the cause of this but we have no reason to believe that this is an immunological reaction.

Normally the swelling is gone within a week after injection into the lips.

If laser treatment, chemical peeling or any other procedure based on active dermal response is considered after treatment with a Restylane product, there is a theoretical risk of eliciting an inflammatory reaction at the implant site. This also applies if a Restylane product is administered before the skin has healed completely after such as procedure.

It is recommended to wait until the treated area is totally healed (normally 4-6 weeks).
