Raising Eyebrows: How the Band Aid Brow Lift Works

dr john leroyWhether it’s squinting in the sun, furrowing in anger, or raising our brows at our children, repeated facial expressions take a toll on the muscles of our upper face.  With repetitive movement, the skin around the eyes and forehead can become wrinkled and crepe-like.  Board certified Atlanta plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. John LeRoy performs Band Aid Brow Lift (upper facelift surgery) to relax these wrinkle causing muscles and tighten the overlying skin that can make us look tired and older than we really are.

Depending on the amount and depth of wrinkling around your eyes, Botox® or Dysport® injections may be performed to temporarily relax the muscles responsible for mild to moderate signs of eye-aging; however, it’s recommended you seek the advice of a board certified plastic surgeon during consultation to determine the most appropriate eye rejuvenation treatment for your individual concerns.

Unlike traditional facelift or brow lift surgery, Dr. LeRoy employs a few small incisions hidden within the patient’s hair line and around the contours of the ears to release the wrinkle sources.  Like his original “Band Aid Procedures,” the Band Aid Brow Lift significantly reduces recovery time for patients.  Most patients are able to resume their regular activities within ten days of their procedure.

Dr. LeRoy uses partial facelift procedures like the Band Aid Brow Lift, Band Aid Facelift, and lower facelift to more effectively address isolated cosmetic concerns in patients whose signs of aging are concentrated within a particular region of the face.  Dr. LeRoy explains the idea behind partial facelift surgery like the Band Aid Brow Lift, “Targeting the signs of aging is similar to the idea of working out kinks during a massage.  Everyone physically manifests their stressors differently resulting in some areas producing more wrinkles than others.  Partial, mini plastic surgery procedures allow me to address the source of the issue without treating unnecessary areas for a natural looking plastic surgery result.”
