Brow Lift Surgery
Dr. Leo Lapuerta is a highly qualified plastic surgeon in Houston who has many years of experience in performing brow lift procedures. A brow lift is also called a forehead lift, and most people choose it to get rid of frown lines due to years of repeated muscle movement. This procedure helps smooth out the forehead, reduce frown lines and raise the upper eyelids.
Most of the patients that undergo this pocedure are 40 to 60 years. This is because these patients want to reduce the visible signs of old age. The patients also combine this procedure with other procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or facelift.
During the first consultation, Dr. Lapuerta always explains the whole procedure to his patients. He also asks and addresses any questions or concerns that the patient may be having. The doctor also ensures that the patient is well prepared for the procedure both mentally and physically.
During the brow lift procedure, the doctor will make an incision behind the hairline just at the top of the head. This is to ensure that procedure does not leave a conspicuous scar. After the incision has been made, the doctor will lift the skin of the forehead in order to be able to remove the underlying tissue so that the muscles are released. People who have short hair and who would like to undergo the brow lift procedure may have to wait for the hair to grow so that it may have to hide the scar left after the incision.
