If your friends and colleagues frequently ask you if you are tired or
angry, it may be time to consider a male brow lift. Over time, the
elasticity of the skin and muscles in the forehead begin to loosen
and the brow tissues begin to sag. The result is a hooded look to
the upper eyelids which give you a perpetually exhausted or angry
look. Restoring your brows to their former, more lifted position with a male brow lift in Austin can not only make you look happier, more approachable, but far younger, and well-rested.
Austin plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Whitfield is a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience. He has an intimate understanding of male facial anatomy and proportion. His goal is to deliver a subtle, natural-looking improvement. A male brow lift with Dr. Whitfield will leave you looking younger, refreshed, but never as if you have had “work done.”
While some men are genetically inclined to a heavier brow, the main culprit leading to a drooping brow is aging. But while both men and women suffer the effects of age-related brow droop, there are a couple of important considerations in a male brow lift. The first is whether or not the procedure is the right way to refresh your look, based upon your facial anatomy. The aesthetics of a male brow are naturally heavier than that of the female brow. A man’s brow can look natural either at or below the orbital rim (bones around the eye socket). It is critical that the surgical procedure does not over-feminize the look of your brow line by raising it too high.
Many men are taking advantage of advanced aesthetic technology, electing to undergo a “scarless brow lift” with AccuTite, performed by Dr. Whitfield. AccuTite is the smallest, minimally-invasive RF (radiofrequency) device to tighten skin and remove excess fat – all performed with only local anesthesia. AccuTite is a system that delivers RF energy to the brow with precision and accuracy. This technique requires less recovery time, and fewer issues such as bruising and swelling. Imagine a scarless brow lift, performed in about one hour – it is possible with AccuTite.
The incisions for a male brow lift are placed within the hairline. Since many men have shorter hair or are experiencing a receding hairline, this may make the procedure not an ideal choice for you. The most effective approach for facial rejuvenation will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation, with the assistance of our 3D imaging system.
This customized surgical procedure can improve the following signs of age on a man’s features:
Dr. Whitfield performs what is called an endoscopic brow lift. A special surgical tool called an endoscope allows him to see the inner muscular structure on a monitor, and correctly lift and restore the structure to create a very natural-looking outcome.
The advantage of the endoscopic approach for men is that the surgery involves shorter incisions which can be more easily hidden in short hair.
There are three approaches to a surgical brow lift for men:
After a male brow lift, it is normal to be bruised and swollen in the early stages of healing. The degree of post-operative swelling, and bruising will depend upon how your individual body heals. In general, most of the bruising should subside within one to two weeks, after which you can return to your daily activities looking refreshed, more approachable, and younger. You should notice a remarkable improvement within ten days to two weeks, although residual swelling may take up to six months to fully resolve.
