Brow Surgery

Actual patients of Dr. Kuhn

Many patients wanting a brow lift have droopy brows which often contribute to heavy, loose upper eyelid skin.

Understanding the Procedure

Endoscopic lifts require four to six one-inch incisions in and around the hairline. The skin is repositioned to achieve the desired esthetic effect, but no skin is actually removed. The procedure is safer, and recovery time is less than traditional brow lifts. Traditional lifts remove scalp hair and may damage nerves as a consequence of the direction of the incision.

Safe and Simple Recovery

You will experience some swelling and bruising in the ten days following surgery. The sutures and staples are removed seven days following surgery.


Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat, muscle and skin from both the upper and lower lids. During the pre-surgical consultation, you will be examined and asked questions concerning vision and what you hope the surgery will accomplish.

Understanding the Procedure

In upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Kuhn first marks the individual lines and creases of the lids to keep the scars as invisible as possible . Incisions are made with a laser, which is also used to remove excess fat, muscle and loose skin. Sutures are used to close the incisions.

In lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Kuhn makes the incision along the lashline and smile creases in the lower lid, making it almost invisible. Eyelid puffiness caused primarily by excess fat may be corrected by a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. The incision in this case is made inside the lower eyelid . There are no scars on the skin resulting from this type of surgery.

Safe and Simple Recovery

After the surgery, the eyelids do not have to be covered. Ointment is used to prevent dryness of the eye area. A mild to moderate amount of swelling and bruising is normal. Skin stitches can be removed five days after surgery.
