One of the fun things about my job is that I try to think of creative ways to save my patients money yet still get them the changes they’re looking for. As many of you know, from 2003-4 I lived in Beverly Hills and worked with a top name plastic surgeon (Dr. E) to learn the “tricks of the trade.” I entered the office a skinny, pale young doctor with no experience and left, one year later, a tanned, grizzled veteran plastic surgeon with a virtual utility belt full of plastic surgery tools. Granted, the way we do things has changed in the past 7 years, but I was very fortunate to learn some cool little tricks that still work to this day. One of these tricks is the $30 Browlift.
I often have patients come in for consultation with concerns about their eyebrows. I hear the phrase “Everyone asks me why I’m so grumpy” all the time. For some of these patients, Botox or a browlift are their only option. But for others there is the $30 browlift.
Take this patient, who asked about a browlift:
Sure, her brows look a tad low, but is plastic surgery really her only option? I asked my aesthetician to perform strategic brow waxing, a.k.a. a $30 browlift. And voila! This is her 20 minutes later, with a wallet still full.
The moral of the story: There is more than one way to skin a cat… or perform a browlift. Thanks Dr. E!
