Dr. Travis Stork: Well, we sent Nicole to Dr. Ordon for a little pick me up in the form of a brand new brow lift.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Tell me what you would like to achieve.
Nicole: My eyelids, they're droopy and saggy.
Dr. Drew Ordon: It’s a little bit of the heavy brow. We’re going to do an endoscopic brown lift. This procedure is just putting your brows back where they belong.
Nicole: That sounds —
Dr. Drew Ordon: And then we’re going to use these really cool devices. They’re actually fixed to the bone and to your tissue here. They dissolve in time.
Nicole: How long will the procedure take?
Dr. Drew Ordon: About an hour and a half. It’s endoscopic so we’re using you know lighted instruments. We do this to three tiny insertions in the temple area. It’s show time.
We’re going to start on this side first having insertion through the layers of the scalp down to the outer covering of the scalp releasing tissue around the orbit of the eye and the outer part and the upper part. What we want is complete release of this forehead-brow complex. You can see it’s releasing those fibers attachments. We like using this fixation device that starts with actually drilling a hole in the bone, pull up on the brow and forehead and set it. It has barbs on it. We bring it up to the position we want. We’ve set it down and it stays fixed in place.
So now all is left is setting the temples. We’re going to pull the skin and fix the tissue pressing down on it. It will hold that temple and later the brow. Look how we’ve opened up her upper eyelids. We brought this brow complex up probably five millimeters. She’s going to love this result.
