Hi, I’m Dr. Allan Wulc of W Cosmetic Surgery. That’s W Cosmetic Surgery dot com. We’re here today with Liz Keptner, who’s the face of our practice, proud to say. Like most women that I’ve encountered in the past 26 years, and even beautiful women, Liz has found something to pick apart on her face. So what bothers you, Liz?
Something! I’ve found a couple things. I am very self conscious, Dr. Wulc, about the lines between my forehead. 11 or 111. I just have noticed it. Makes me very uncomfortable. Also on my forehead, I was a lifeguard, I used to sun all the time, never listened to my Mom but I should have because I have all these lines on my forehead that I really hate. And so, I see them in pictures and they’re so pronounced. I just can’t stand them.
One last thing, too. I feel like I have a bit of a droopy eyelid. I notice that in pictures, again, that I see that one looks, maybe, bigger than the other. I don’t know if that’s something you can help me with.
So all these things are related to being expressive. And, when you frown, you develop these lines here. When you squint, the same. You do have a little bit of a droop of the right brow. It’s not your eyelid, it’s your brow that’s droopy, and you have these lines here, which come from actually trying to elevate your brow.
So years ago, we would probably would have said leave. You don’t need anything or we would have actually recommended surgery. Fortunately, for the past 15 years we’ve had neurotoxins available that we can use to weaken these muscles of expression, so that the wrinkles disappear or they’re markedly diminished. You can still express yourself, but not it the same way and without the wrinkles. We can actually use these compounds to elevate your brow slightly.
