Do people sometimes tell you that you look angry, tired or sad -- when you're actually not? Drooping or low-set brows can often give people this mistaken impression. A brow lift by Paoli facial surgeon Dr. Hove will transform your expression, so you look the way you feel -- alert, open and upbeat.
Smoothing the muscles and tissues above the eyes, this procedure targets drooping brows and the deep horizontal lines that can make a person appear sullen or tired. BOTOX® is tremendously helpful in this area, but will only get you so far. Often, Dr. Hove uses BOTOX® in conjunction with a brow lift to achieve an enhanced result. There are many different types of brow lifts, and each has their strengths and weaknesses. An experienced facial plastic surgeon will be able to discuss which type will be best for you.
In this procedure, Dr. Hove hides the incision right in a forehead crease. The advantage is a quick procedure with quick recovery, and long lasting results since the work is done close to the brow itself. The midforehead lift is most useful in the male face, or when there are particularly well-defined creases with a heavy brow.
In this minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Hove makes tiny (1cm) incisions in the hair-bearing scalp, and uses endoscopic instruments to correct a heavy brow or forehead. He uses a novel dissolvable device called an Endotyne® to hold the tissue in place until it heals. In fact, Dr. Hove is one of the first surgeons to use this FDA approved device in live surgery at Stanford University before it was made available to surgeons nationwide.
I believe that to excel in any career, one has to keep reaching, learning, and sharpening their skills, instead of resting idle on some self-declared title. At the Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we continually strive to bring you the latest advanced techniques and products in the field of facial plastic surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive.
