Your eyes are the most expressive component in your face. Due to aging or inherent facial structure, your eyes may lose this expression or convey the wrong expression. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants is fluent in eyebrow and eyelid surgery, restoring a youthful appearance through your eyes and giving you back your freedom of expression.
Brow Rejuvenation Techniques
As a general statement, low-positioned or heavy eyebrows can contribute to a tired or angry look. Conversely, elevated eyebrows can result in a refreshed, relaxed and youthful appearance. The various techniques of a brow lift may be used to raise the eyebrows in a way that appears natural, not surprised. This serves to restore the one's face to its previous, youthful look. A brow lift may also reduce forehead wrinkles, contributing to smooth contours in one's face.
In some milder cases, Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants may employ BOTOX® to reduce wrinkles around the forehead. BOTOX is a cosmetic injectable that serves to partially paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles, concurrently filling out the wrinkles. It is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables because it gets results. Despite the efficiency of the product, it must be applied by a competent physician so as to avoid an overcorrected or unnatural look.
Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery is a technique whereby the eyebrows are surgically elevated to provide a more permanent correction of brow lines or elevation of the eyebrows. This procedure may be done with an endoscopic technique, using small incisions that are easily closed and hidden. It may also be done using open surgery, hiding the incision within the hair or just along the hairline. Either case is effective and the option used will depend upon your circumstances and preference. We will thoroughly discuss both options with you during your consultation, giving you all the knowledge necessary to make an informed decision. In either case, your brow lift will restore the natural contour of your forehead and give an improved placement of your eyebrows.
Should you opt for brow lift surgery, it is an outpatient procedure and you will be able to go home the same day. Most swelling will resolve within 10-14 days, giving you fast results with minimum downtime.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
Just like other parts of your skin, the eyelids are prone to drooping over time and through the aging process. This contributes to a tired or aged look, even if you feel youthful. In addition to cosmetic troubles, drooping eyelids can cause functional problems, preventing the eyes from opening all the way and partially blocking your clear vision.
The lower lids are equally prone to the signs of aging. We are all familiar with the look of bags under the eyes, or a hollow look around the eyes. While these symptoms do not affect eye function, they definitely contribute to an unbecoming appearance.
Belpharoplasty, also known as eyelid lift surgery, can be used to effectively restore the refreshed appearance of the eyelids, both top and bottom.
In the upper eyelids, this procedure is used to remove any excess skin or fat that has accumulated. The incision is placed in the upper part of the eyelid. This way the thin scar is totally hidden from view when the eye is open. This technique allows the eyes to open more, eliminating any tired or sad appearance from your eyes.
In the lower eyelids, age is most noticeable through excessive skin that creates bags under the eyes. This skin is removed, eliminating the bags and giving a well-rested, youthful appearance in the eyes. In lower eyelid surgery, the incisions are placed directly below the lower eyelashes or actually inside the lower eyelids. In either case, the resultant thin scar will be hidden from view.
Upon your initial consultation, your eyes and eyelids will be thoroughly examined. Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants will give his suggestions for the proper procedure, ensuring you are fully educated before making a decision. During the entire process, your comfort is the priority, and no stone will go unturned in making sure your decision is well-informed.
