Drooping eyebrows, excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids and bags under the eyes are all signs of an ageing face. People with these features are often told by friends, relatives and work colleagues that they look tired, cranky or sad when in fact they feel happy and fully rested.
Rejuvenating the upper face can restore a fresh appearance to tired-looking eyes and drooping eyebrows. Browlift surgery re-suspends the eyebrows to a natural and youthful position. Eyelid surgery can help correct hooding of the upper eyelids, which can impair vision.
Dr Marcells most commonly uses a combination of the Endoscopic and Coronal browlift techniques, although he may use other techniques if they are more appropriate. For people with a high hairline he uses the Trichophytic technique, which involves carefully bevelled incisions at the hairline. These heal quickly and naturally, allowing the hair to grow back through the incision lines. This technique prevents the hairline from rising higher. It can also be used to lower the hairline if needed.
Eyelid surgery is performed to remove excess skin and fat in the upper lids and also to correct bags and sagging under the eyes. The small incisions required heal very well and are mostly unnoticeable.
Eyelid surgery may be performed alone, but is often performed in conjunction with browlift surgery. These procedures are often performed with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as face and neck lift surgery.
Upper facial rejuvenation should make the face look natural, fresher and more youthful. It should not make it look surprised or sunken.
Before and after browlift and eyelid surgery, the skin of the upper face can be kept looking youthful by various non-surgical treatments, such as laser and light treatments, micropeels, microdermabrasion, soft-tissue fillers and muscle relaxants.
Upper facial rejuvenation procedures can take 5 to 10 years off a person’s appearance and greatly boost confidence and self esteem.
