Which Facial Procedure Do I Need?As you’ve gotten older, your ability to hide wrinkles and prevent your face from aging has likely become harder to accomplish. With the popularity of plastic surgery, perhaps you are considering undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure like a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift. However, you may not know which of these procedures are best suited for you. While a consultation with Dr. Patronella at his Houston practice is the best way to determine this, below is some information about the facial procedures we offer.

Facelift: Improves the midface and neck by treating the following:

  • Creases below the eyelids
  • Sagging skin along the jawline (jowls)
  • Lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Sagging skin beneath the chin (double chin)
  • Wrinkles on the neck

Eyelid Lift: Enhances the appearance of the eye area by treating the following:

  • Sagging skin in the upper eyelids
  • Excess fat tissue in the upper or lower eyelids
  • Bags and dark circles below the eyes
  • Wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)

Brow Lift: Improves the position of the eyebrows and forehead area by treating the following:

  • Lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Deep creases between the eyebrows (frown lines)
  • Eyebrows that hang over and hood the eyes
