Testimonial: “I would recommend Dr. Leong to anyone who is even a little apprehensive about having any procedures done. He will put you completely at ease and answer any and all questions without making you feel he has other things going on (which I am sure he does). I feel like I am not only a patient but a friend. He is certainly my "favorite" doctor and I love talking with him about his family. Look at his credentials. This young man certainly knows his profession and it shows! Very comfortable office, very convenient location and very personable staff.” – Jane D.
Brow lift surgery is among the most effective tools on the market for revitalizing a tired, aged appearance. When the brow droops, the facial expression can appear fatigued, angry or depressed. This becomes a source of frustration for Morgantown WV patients who do everything they can to look and feel good, including dieting and exercising. With a brow lift, Dr. Leong can beautifully restore your self-image and self-confidence, creating a smooth, inviting countenance that lights up a room.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift is performed using either a coronal approach with an incision that runs across the top of the head, or an endoscopic approach, using a small tubular camera. Dr. Leong will choose the right technique for your individual situation after an in depth physical evaluation at the time of your first meeting in Morgantown, WV.
All incisions are well-hidden either behind the ears or within the hairline, so your surgery will appear seamless and natural. The procedure can help restore a well-rested, pleasant facial appearance, while also ensuring your vision is unobstructed by a sagging brow.
What are the advantages of a surgical brow lift?
- helps reduce forehead lines, worry lines and wrinkles
- helps to minimize creases at the bridge of the nose
- can help restore vision interrupted by sagging eyebrows
- brightens the smile
- improves the facial expression
- helps combat the signs of aging
- excellent complement to blepharoplasty or a facelift
Who makes the best candidate for a brow lift?
While aging tends to be the primary reason for seeking a brow lift in clients over 40, poor genes as well as exposure to the sun and the elements can play a role in diminishing the facial features in younger clients. A brow lift is ideal for those who cannot find relief through non-surgical injections and are in need of more dramatic changes. Surgery can be combined with a facelift to address both the upper and lower portions of the face for a truly uplifting and energizing makeover.
Dr. Leong requires that all patients undergoing surgery be non-smokers of sound mind and body, and that they have realistic expectations for what the procedure can accomplish. Dr. Leong will carefully review your goals with you during your private Morgantown WV consultation to ensure you will be happy with your outcome.
What will my recovery entail?
Thanks to Dr. Leong’s conservative approach, patients find that postoperative pain is minimized along with recovery time. Morgantown WV clients can expect to be able to return to their normal schedules within 2 weeks, sometimes less. Discomfort can usually be managed with Tylenol or in more severe cases, with prescription medications provided by Dr. Leong. Swelling, bruising and tenderness are all normal symptoms after any surgery, but rest assured these will subside slowly day by day. You will be able to use makeup to help hide any discoloration as you heal.
