Browlift Case #32
Cosmetic Facial Surgeon: Dr. Richard Rival
Procedures Performed: Browlift
This Toronto-area patient felt that her upper face made her look tired and old. She scheduled a consultation at our cosmetic surgery offices in Toronto to learn more about which procedure could effectively restore a younger look without requiring extensive surgery. Dr. Rival evaluated her facial structures and skin quality and suggested a “limited-incision” brow lift.
For select patients, an endoscopic or limited-incision brow lift provides an effective alternative to traditional approaches. In this procedure, Dr. Rival makes several tiny incisions through which he inserts an endoscope, a tiny camera attached to a thin tube. Using the endoscope Dr. Rival can see and correct your facial muscles without having to make a long incision.
To correct this patient’s deep brow lines, Dr. Rival also divided the frowning muscles through an incision hidden in the crease of the upper eyelid. This has a smoothing and lifting effect on the upper third of the patient’s face.
Some weeks after her procedure, the patient is happy to see her face looks significantly more refreshed. Her forehead looks smoother and firmer, and as you can see in the side view photo, her upper eyelid is now visible. She was pleased to see that the Toronto facial cosmetic surgery procedure restored and refreshed her face, so that she looks years younger, happier, and more alert.
