Meet the Doctor
Dr. Mike Majmundar’s practice is unique in that it focuses exclusively on plastic surgery of the face, head and neck. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, his complete approach to facial aesthetics promotes healthy skin, youthful contours, and natural results, without appearing “done” or artificial.
Natural Brow Lift Atlanta
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs natural brow lifts for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Everything from the environment to genetics can result in wrinkling or sagging of the skin across the forehead. This ultimately increases heaviness of the eyebrows. As a result, people (no matter what age) look older than their actual years. They may be perceived as tired, angry or sad, even though they do not actually feel these emotions. In an effort to correct this, many opt for a procedure known as a forehead lift or brow lift.
As with all elective surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. When Dr. Majmundar tightens loose skin and removes the excess; forehead wrinkling and drooping brows are diminished. If needed, part of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines between the brows can be removed, which results in a smoother brow and a more youthful expression. To see what a forehead lift can do for your face; put your hands above your brows and outside the edges of your eyes. Gently raise the skin upwards. If you have a sagging brow or deep furrows between the eyes, then you may be a good candidate for a forehead lift. This procedure is usually done between age 40 and 65, although it may be necessary at an earlier age.
Is a Natural Brow Lift Right for You?
Whether you are having surgery for functional or cosmetic reasons, your choice of a qualified facial plastic surgeon is important. During your consultation, Dr. Majmundar will examine your facial structure, the condition of your skin, and your hairline. At that time, your medical history will be thoroughly reviewed so that we can consider any medical conditions that may heighten surgical risks. Dr. Majmundar will then discuss the procedure, risks and alternatives to the procedure, as well as cost.
Dr. Majmundar performs an endoscopic brow lift (to lift the brow up) by making three small incisions which are placed just behind the hairline. A small camera is then used to facilitate the procedure. The advantage of this type of brow lift is that once the incisions heal, they become inconspicuous. Although this technique may require more surgery time, it is less invasive and is associated with a smaller risk of scarring and temporary scalp numbness. If the patient has a receding hairline or is balding, other types of brow lifts can be performed to hide the incisions and still achieve a natural lift.
What to Expect After the Surgery
Most patients experience a certain amount of swelling and bruising within 7 to 10 days following surgery. In addition to the forehead, sometimes this includes the cheek and eye area. To reduce swelling, keep your head elevated and apply cool compresses to your forehead and eyes. Dr. Majmundar will also have you start on medications prior to surgery that will help reduce the amount of bruising and healing time. The sutures are usually removed within seven days. For most patients, the recovery time will not exceed two weeks, but patients may still be advised to avoid strenuous activities for longer periods. Any prolonged bruising can be camouflaged with standard make-up techniques. Many times, a harmonious rejuvenation can be achieved when a natural brow lift is combined with a blepharoplasty (eyelid tuck) or Natural Facelift.
