Mole Removal 101
Moles are common skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body; while many moles are harmless and even considered beauty marks by some, others may cause discomfort or raise concerns due to their size, location, or appearance.
Dr. Kristina Zakhary is trained in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and exclusively in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, performing Forehead/ Brow lift surgery on both men and women in Calgary, Alberta.
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift is a common cosmetic plastic surgery, and can have long lasting results for up to 10 years. Brow lifts are a common response to the effects of aging, which can be seen in the areas around the eyes and brow.
Brow lifts are most often performed on both men and women from ages 40 to 60 who are experiencing hooding of the upper eyelids and sagging and drooping of the brow.
As you age, your eyebrows may sag and droop. As a result of lowering of the eyebrows, it can worsen the appearance of hooded upper eyelids and deepen the wrinkles in your forehead area. Low eyebrows also tend to make you look a lot more aged and tired. Low brows and a wrinkled forehead are often corrected together with eyelid blepharoplasty surgery or a facelift operation.
Although the Brow lift surgery will not stop the aging process, it can reduce the signs of aging while smoothing the forehead and tightening the forehead muscles to reposition your eyebrows to a more desirable and youthful position.
The Forehead lift incision is placed along the front of your hairline where it will be well hidden as it heals. The brow lift surgery involves lifting the forehead skin, tightening the muscles or weakening other muscles to reduce deep wrinkles in your forehead or in between your eyebrows. The eyebrows are raised to your desired position.
Dr. Zakhary will then close the incision very carefully with absorbable stitches that usually dissolve naturally over the 2 weeks after your surgery. The incisions heal very well and are hidden in your hairline. The recovery time from Brow lift surgery is typically between 2 to 3 weeks.

Ear plugs, or "tribal piercings," have been a fashion trend in young adults for years. Their associations with counter-culture and popularity have attracted a lot of attention. But, as many grown adults have discovered after the decision to insert these into their lobes during their youth, having ear plugs done can become a recurring nuisance.
