Temporal Brow Lift
Perhaps: It is common for one brow to sit lower than the other. This will be much worse if someone has weakness of the facial muscles as in bell's palsy. Certain brow lift operations might be able to improve the symmetry of the brows. Have a consult with a facial plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Yes. : Frontalis sling is usually indicated to correct ptosis (drooping eyelid) in patients with oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy. Because the levator palpebral muscle (the main muscle that lifts your upper eyelid) is effected in opmd, procedures to tighten that muscle is usually ineffective, unless you have minimal ptosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does an open surgery (vs. Endoscopic approach) brow lift avoid the raising of the frontal hairline?
Trichophytic incisio: N is specialized forehead lift incision that raises the brows and actually lowers the hairline or reduces the high forehead. This is a huge plus since every other form (including endo) of forehead/brow lift will raise the hairline at least some. The anterior hairline incision must be slightly wavy, beveled to allow hair growth through or in front of the scar, and skillfully closed for least scar! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Not effective: A botox brow lift is used to target the lateral aspect of the brow. This will have minimal effect on excess hooding which could be a combination of excess eyelid skin (dermatochalasis) and a low brow. If this is the case, then frequently people compensate unknowingly by keeping the brow elevated. In this scenario a brow lift is needed initially plus or minus a blepharoplasty afterwards. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can a facial mini-flap lift also soften one "moderately" deep horizontal forehead line (when expressionless)?
Facelift: Regardless of the type of face lift you are contemplating, it's important to recognize that a facelift in general only tightens and addresses the lower third of the face and the upper neck. Forehead lines can be addressed with surgery, too, but that is called a forehead or brow lift. They can be done a number of ways, which should be explored/explained by your surgeon. ...Read more

A night guard that you wear to reduce clenching or grinding your teeth which works the muscles and makes them larger.

Franchise concept: This is an attempt to bring the facelift to the masses by reducing cost. Unfortunately unlike many other franchise concepts such as mcdonalds, I am not aware of lifestyle lift providing a consistent uniform product which can be reproduced. Essentially they hire surgeons and pay the reduced fees but provide high volume to compensate their surgeons, . ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

Too much product: Drooping eyelids can occur with botox, Dysport or xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a). Because these products work by relaxing the muscles. Too much product or injecting too close to the brow can cause the eyelids to droop. Make sure you inform your doctor that this happened so that he/she can back off a little for your next treatment. This is especially common when treating the forehead and when treated by inexperienced drs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How many hours does a surgeon deed to perform a neck lift, face lift and lower eyelid blepharoplasty?
Botox for ptosis: I do not recommend using Botox in this case, as it will relax the muscles that are keeping your lids open, which will result in worse ptosis. I would instead suggest seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for possible eyelid surgery. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Can an upper eyelid surgical approach (to avoid visible scars on forhead) be used to decrease a horizontal forehead deep crease?
Not exactly: Ptosis of the eyelid is corrected, in most cases, by advancing the levator muscle, which raises the eyelid. It is done through the same type of incision as a blepharoplasty and the two procedures are often combined in older people. In some cases, ptosis is corrected by an incision on the inside of the eyelid, which would not be combined with blepharoplasty. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?
Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more
