“My experience has taught me that when a person has a positive self-image, she/he is more engaged in the spectrum of daily activities related to work, parenting, and relationships. Because of the physical transformation they receive, my patients find more joy in putting on a swimsuit and going to the pool, they feel more confident about how they look in and out of clothes, and their relationships are often improved particularly their intimate relationships because they feel proud, whole and less inhibited.”

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.
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.
