    What Should I Expect During Your Brow Lift / Forehead Lift Consultation?

    What Should I Expect During Your Brow Lift / Forehead Lift Consultation?

    Brow Lift / Forehead Lift Plastic Surgery

    A detailed pre-treatment consultation is one of the most important steps in your cosmetic surgery journey, whether it is for a forehead lift or a brow lift. Stage for an effective and smooth surgery procedure can only be set with a successful consultation.

    You should proactively engage with the treatment provider during the initial consultation. Make an effort to understand everything about the procedure and freely ask questions to clear all your doubts and make an educated decision.

    Educating Patients

    First goal of your surgeon will be to educate you on the various aspects of the brow lift surgery. They would also apprise you of alternate options and whether you should undergo any complementary invasive or noninvasive procedure for achieving your unique aesthetic goals.

    It is important that you proactively participate in the consultation process. You should also offer your feedback and inputs clearly to the surgeon to allow them to craft the best surgery plan. Your surgeon will discuss cosmetic and medical aspects of the brow lift procedure. They will also discuss estimated costs. This will be useful in planning your budget, financing, and payment options.

    Assessing Aesthetic Goals

    Initial consultation offers a tremendous opportunity to the surgeon to understand the things that are affecting your upper face appearance. They will specifically focus on the looks of your forehead and brow. You should not hesitate to carry pictures from websites or magazines to show the kind of look you want if you have a certain image in mind.

    Medical Evaluation

    During the initial consultation, the surgeon will review medical records to ensure that you are ready for anesthesia and facial surgery. The surgeon will examine the appearance of your brows and forehead and your facial structure to determine the kind of cosmetic corrections required.

    The surgeon will create a customized forehead lift or brow lift plastic surgery plan based on your general anatomical and health elements and cosmetic goals.

    Information Sharing

    You should inform your underlying medical conditions to the cosmetic surgeon so that they can make changes to the surgical plans if required. You should be as forthcoming as possible during the initial consultation. You should be honest about lifestyle choices, such as excessive drinking or smoking.

    Make sure the surgeon knows about all medications, drugs, and supplements you are on during the initial consultation. This is important for both prescription and non-prescription medications. The surgeon may make changes to your medication schedule or order medical or diagnostic tests.

    Recovery and Preparation Guidelines

    The surgeon and their team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your surgery. They will explain post-operative recovery as well. You may be asked to apply for at least a week’s leave from your workplace for post-operative recovery. You can also discuss about scheduling the surgery when it is convenient for you.

    Are You A Good Candidate For A Brow Lift / Forehead Lift?

    Brow Lift / Forehead Lift

    Appearance of horizontal lines on the forehead and furrows or aging lines between the brows can make you look tired, older, or angry. Forehead lift or brow lift cosmetic surgery is an ideal procedure for reversing the effects and restoring smoother and tighter appearance of the upper face.

    During the pre-treatment consultation, your surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for brow lift procedure. They may recommend the brow lift procedure in combination with an eyelid lift for more harmonious or better results. Botox injections may be required in certain cases if you want to avoid surgery. Your surgeon will recommend the best procedure based on your unique facial appearance and aesthetic concerns.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides forehead lift and brow lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    Suitable Candidacy for Brow Lift

    People aged 40 and above are generally good candidates for forehead lift plastic surgery or brow lift procedure. Brow line, at this age, begins to droop causing conspicuous fine lines and wrinkles. For some candidates the lines may start occurring as early as their 20s and 30s if sagging brows are a genetic condition.

    Ideal candidates usually have realistic expectations. They should be committed to following pre- and post-surgery care instructions. You are an ideal candidate for the procedure if you suffer from the following:

    • Old or tired looking face
    • Droopy brows
    • Heavy upper lids
    • Visible furrows between the brows
    • Deep horizontal lines on the forehead
    • Vision obstruction due to heavily sagging brows

    Correcting Forehead Lines

    Wrinkles and fine lines can emerge across the forehead over the years as a result of repetitive expression. Forehead skin may become loose as well because of this. These apparent aging signs can make anyone feel self-conscious. Dermal filler injections, like Botox are a salient way to address these conditions. However, they are useful only for producing limited improvement.

    Unfortunately, their effects last for a short duration too. You should consider a forehead lift or a brow lift if you are seeking dramatic and sustainable enhancement in the upper facial appearance.

    Reversing Signs of Tired and Dull Upper Face

    Underlying muscles in the forehead becomes loose as one ages. This creates a less alert and older looking upper facial appearance. Time can also cause your brows to begin sagging. Your face will look tired and dull even if you feel youthful and refreshed on the inside. Brow lift cosmetic surgery can be a good choice if you want your upper face to outwardly reflect your inner youthfulness.

    Additional Requirements for Candidacy

    You should have a positive mindset and be in good physical health. You should also start by keeping clear aesthetic goals for achieving satisfactory results. Avoid smoking for a few weeks to be a suitable candidate. You should also follow your surgeon’s recovery and preparation guidelines completely.

    Exparel For Post-op Pain Control After Plastic Surgery

    EXPAREL | Non-opioid Analgesic Pain Management

    You don’t necessarily need to undergo a period of significant discomfort and pain after a major cosmetic surgery, such as tummy tuck procedure. Exparel is a safe and effective post-operative pain control solution that makes the recovery after tummy tuck surgery relatively painless.

    Experienced plastic surgeons make use of Exparel, which is a local and non-opioid anesthetic to perform tummy tuck and other major procedures. Exparel makes the procedure less painful and the recovery easier.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides tummy tuck procedure with Exparel for post-op pain control to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

    What is Exparel?

    Exparel is a modified form of a local anesthetic called bupivacaine that has been in use since the 50s. Exparel is a specially formulated FDA approved form of bupivacaine which provides pain relief for several days with just a single dose. In contrast, bupivacaine provides pain relief for just 6 to 8 hours.

    Tummy tuck patients can now get out of bed much sooner because of Exparel. They can resume their regular routine much more quickly as compared to traditional pain management medication. Further, patients get the benefit of pain management without any uncomfortable apparatus, such as a pain pump.

    Administering Exparel

    Exparel is administered before commencing the tummy tuck plastic surgery while the patient is under anesthesia. The medication is injected between the abdominal wall muscles through ultrasound guidance in a painless manner. This is called a TAP block or an ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane.

    Patients that follow Exparel based protocol experience less discomfort and zero opioid use after their tummy tuck procedures. In most cases, patients don’t need a single narcotic pill after their procedure.

    The surgeon will ask you for a complete patient medical history before recommending Exparel. They will need to know about pre-existing health conditions and current prescription or over-the-counter medications for ensuring that Exparel can be safely administered.

    Advanced DepoFoam Technology

    Exparel is a non-opioid pain reliever that is powered by DepoFoam technology. It makes use of regional analgesia for delivering precise pain control. This allows for enhanced recovery during the first few days of post-surgery.

    Over 9 million patients have been administered with non-opioid Exparel in the last nine years. It works locally at the target area and makes use of the DepoFoam drug delivery technology. The technology works by encapsulating bupivacaine in multivesicular liposomes.

    Over time, DepoFoam particles begin releasing bupivacaine as the lipid membranes get absorbed. This prolongs the action duration of bupivacaine. The versatility of administration and proprietary DepoFoam technology enables surgical site infiltration for producing local analgesia.

    Exparel can be used in various different surgical procedures. It has demonstrated enhanced clinical results.

    Ask Your Treatment Provider about Exparel

    Exparel should put your mind at ease if you have not had a tummy tuck surgery because of concerns about potential post-op pain. You should speak with your surgeon about the medication that has made tummy tuck recovery a safer and more comfortable experience.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for tummy tuck procedure with Exparel for post-op pain control.
