Post Bariatric Brow Lift

Many people overlook how much a sagging brow can contribute to facial aging. This is particularly true for post weight loss patients, who can have a significant amount of excess skin that hides the eyes and makes them appear tired. In addition, wrinkling of the forehead skin is very common. Dr. McNemar performs brow lift, also known as forehead lift, to correct sagging in the upper face and reduce the brow's hooding effect over the eyes.

After you've lost weight through your own diet and exercise plan or through bariatric surgery in the Bay Area, it is the right time to consider your plastic surgery options. Sagging skin on the face and neck won't retighten on its own, making cosmetic surgery an essential part of creating a slimmer and more youthful-looking complexion.

Request a private consultation where Dr. McNemar will share your options with you and give you his honest, professional opinion on how plastic surgery can help you reach your ultimate weight loss and cosmetic goals.

The Straight Story

You had many benefits in mind when you chose weight loss surgery in the Bay Area - benefits like improving your health and energy, reducing your risk of certain illnesses, and enhancing your self image. It's not vain to want to look your best and feel good about yourself when you look in the mirror. Dr. McNemar understands that facing the world with confidence is one of the main reasons you chose to get serious about weight loss in the first place, and he looks forward to performing your post-bariatric plastic surgery.

Brow Lift after Weight Loss Surgery in the Bay Area

Significant weight loss can make vertical and horizontal creases in the forehead deepen and look worse. By performing a brow lift, Dr. McNemar can address the underlying tissue and muscles, as well as the surface skin, to create a result that looks natural and provides a long-term solution to wrinkling and sagging. By altering some of the underlying brow muscles, the procedure can prevent many frown and worry-lines from returning.

Forehead lifts have the additional benefit of creating a brighter and more youthful-looking eye appearance by correcting eyebrows that droop or sag. Heaviness in the brow can cause the upper eyelids to look baggy or conceal parts of the eye. The result is a sad, tired, or even unhappy look. Dr. McNemar makes every effort to minimize scarring, in most cases using an endoscope - a small surgical instrument with a microscopic camera attached at the end - to reduce the size of incisions and the amount of disruption to facial tissue. When longer incisions are necessary as part of a coronal brow lift procedure, they are hidden along the hairline and once fully healed are very inconspicuous for most patients.

Helping You Achieve Your Goals

After a brow lift procedure, patients can enjoy a tightened and toned look in the upper face. For post weight loss patients, forehead lift is often combined with eyelid surgery or a face lift to achieve a comprehensive makeover. Total surgical time will depend on the amount of surgical correction required and the number of procedures necessary to achieve a better facial and body contour. Dr. McNemar will review your areas of cosmetic concern during your consultation and tailor every procedure he performs to your unique needs.
