This 42-year-old woman wanted to correct signs of facial aging that were giving her a tired, sad, and aged look. In particular, she wanted to get rid of facial lines and creases, and raise her droopy brow and heavy upper eyelids. During her consultation, she asked me review her surgical and non-surgical options.

To give her lasting improvements, I recommended San Diego eyelid surgery for her upper eyelids and an endoscopic brow lift for her sagging bowline. Certain patients can attain the improvements they desire from eyelid surgery or brow lift alone, but this patient's sagging was significant enough to call for a combination of the two procedures. Performing the brow lift endoscopically is a minimally invasive technique that enabled her to recover quickly. I was able to conceal the incisions within her hairline and along her upper eyelid crease where they would not be noticeable.

I also performed a laser peel of her entire face to renew her skin's texture and appearance to help it feel soft and smooth, while evening out coloring and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The initial redness, which looks similar to a sunburn, will gradually fade. The laser stimulates collagen production to gradually enhance skin tone for months after treatment.

Her facial cosmetic surgery and laser peel went well and were free from complications. After her recovery, which took about 2 weeks, she was delighted with her results. She felt that she recaptured the vibrant, youthful, and happy appearance she desired.
