Procedures

Endoscopic Brow Lift

Much like a face lift, a brow lift raises the skin on the forehead, opening the eye to create a more youthful and inviting appearance. This procedure can be done endoscopically, which is an advanced, minimally invasive technique resulting in reduced scarring and eliminates the possibility of hair loss.

Consultation 

The cosmetic consultation with Dr. Oser is an important step in the process of considering aesthetic surgery. He and his staff are committed to helping you become well informed about the actual process of preparing for your brow lift. Please feel free to ask any questions and let us know how we can help you throughout the process.

Dr. Oser will spend time with you discussing your wishes and desires. He will examine you and give you his professional opinion about how to best achieve your goals and will work with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for a brow lift. He will take into consideration your specific needs, your age, health and various other factors. This procedure is commonly elected by both men and women between the ages of 35 and 50 years old. 

Other services may be recommended in combination with this service to be sure that you have an optimal surgical result.

Preparation Before your Procedure

Three weeks prior to and three weeks after your surgery, try to limit your alcohol and tobacco intake. Two weeks prior to and two weeks after your surgery, do not take medication that may thin your blood such as aspirin or Ibuprofen products.

The Day of Your Procedure 
Please refrain from wearing makeup, contact lenses, hairpins, jewelry, body lotion or perfume. Wear comfortable clothing. If you develop a cold, sore throat, fever or any symptoms of illness before your surgery, notify the office.

Please prepare to have a responsible adult available to provide transportation after your procedure and have arrangements made for any necessary assistance you may require for the following 24 hours. If you are a minor, a parent or guardian must accompany you.

Procedure 
Before your procedure, Dr Oser will answer any questions that may have arisen since the initial consultation and you will have an opportunity to meet any additional staff members involved. Dr. Oser and his staff will do everything to make you feel as comfortable as possible and will be available to address any concerns that you may have.

The brow lift procedure will take about one and a half hours. Time may vary if this procedure is combined with other procedures. When you are ready for surgery you will be brought into our state-of-the-art, certified surgical suite and comfortably put to sleep using general anesthesia.

The use of endoscopic techniques during this procedure result in virtually undetectable incisions, virtually no scarring and a quick recovery.

Recovery 

Just as everyone is an individual, everyone recovers differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort following a brow lift. Dr. Oser will recommend no heavy lifting and avoiding direct sunlight for several weeks. A couple weeks after surgery, you will be able to resume normal activities.

A couple days after your surgery, Dr. Oser will follow up with you to see how you are healing, answer any questions and, if necessary, prescribe medication.

Results 

While results may vary, patients typically enjoy a more overall youthful and inviting appearance. Most patients see an opening of the eye and brow area, helping them regain a more alert, naturally youthful, approachable appearance.

Dr. Oser may recommend complementary services to maximize your desired result. These may include a face lift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, nasal surgery and facial implants.
