“Commitment to excellence is the cornerstone of my philosophy, while comprehensive care and compassion are at the heart of my professional goals for my patients.”

Houston Plastic Surgeon Christopher Patronella, MD, FACS,FICS

While a face lift is considered to provide the most in-depth restoration to the face, procedures such as eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and a brow lift can provide significant rejuvenation to specific areas.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery, or blepharoplasty, will restore a refreshed, alert appearance to your eyes by repairing drooping and sagging lids, and undereye bags that can cause the eyes to appear tired and aged. This procedure gives the eyes a more youthful look, and may help to correct vision impairment that is caused by excessive sagging skin in the lids.

The Eyelid Procedure

Incisions are placed in the creases of the upper eyelids and close to the lash line beneath the eyes so that scars will be well concealed.Through these incisions, the muscles are tightened, excess skin is removed, and fat is repositioned.

A youthful look requires a balanced removal of excess tissue, yet preservation of a healthy fullness of the eyes. Over-treatment causes an unattractive hollow look that worsens with age and usually cannot be repaired. Dr. Patronella is careful to achieve this balance, removing the proper amount of fat and tissue to create and preserve a a more youthful look.

Eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia in one to three hours. After one week, stitches will be removed, and patients may return to work within five to seven days. Strenuous activities may be resumed in approximately three weeks.

Brow Lift Surgery

Give your brows and forehead a lift for a smoother, refreshed appearance

Over time, gravity and a loss of skin elasticity causes the brow to sag, and creases to form across the length of the forehead, giving the face a tired, worn expression. A brow lift, or forehead lift, will reverse the effects of gravity by gently raising the brows to a more elevated position, and smoothing out furrows on the forehead and between the brows to a restore a more refreshed and youthful appearance to the face.

The Brow Lift Procedure

In a brow lift procedure, incisions are discreetly made inside the hairline. Through these incisions, Dr. Patronella removes excess skin, and repositions the muscles that cause frown lines. The youthful appearance of the face is further enhanced by raising the eyebrows to a more aesthetically pleasing position. The procedure is completed in two hours, and may be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Brow Lift Recovery

Most bruising from a brow lifts subsides within two weeks, and concealing makeup can be worn to diminish the appearance of any discoloration. Stitches are removed a week after surgery, and most patients are able to return to work after week of recovery.
