Why Now Might Be the Time for an Eyebrow/Forehead Lift

Let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger. Eventually that once beautiful, healthy skin is going to age with us. The tissues found in the brow and forehead descend and cause those muscles in the face to work more frequently, which in turn, causes those deep lines you see in the mirror. Those deep lines often begin to give the face an aged appearance or will convince others that you are tired, angry or sad, when that’s just not the case.

It is important before considering this procedure to speak with a board certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Motoki, about your options and what will give you the results you are looking for. Once you have discussed your options and Dr. Motoki has provided you with the information you need, the procedure will take place.

This procedure can be done through small incisions within the hair using endoscopic equipment, or can be done through a scalp incision or anterior hairline incision.  The brow and forehead are then lifted to a more youthful position. This procedure takes generally one to two hours to complete under general anesthesia.

In a brow and forehead lift procedure by Dr. Motoki, you are guaranteed a youthful and refreshed appearance. Give us a call today to schedule your complimentary cosmetic consultation!

Top Three Benefits of Body Contouring

Body contouring is commonly performed on individuals who have recently undergone major weight loss and are looking to improve the appearance of their body, whether that be through a tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift. At Body by Motoki, Dr. David Motoki is trained to provide patients with these procedures to help them with their appearance goals. Today we are going to cover the three main benefits of body contouring and how it can help in your body image goals.

Youthful Skin

After an individual loses a significant amount of weight or ages, the skin tends to become saggy and less firm. With body contouring, you can obtain smooth and firm contours, providing the patient with a more youthful appearance.


After weight is lost, that loose skin can become an uncomfortable reminder of the excess weight you once carried. Large folds of excess skin are also susceptible to skin rashes, infections and irritation, which can potentially cause further health complications. Body contouring by Dr. Motoki can help reduce that risk and provide you with the comfort you deserve.


Weight loss has shown to improve physical aspects of the body as well as mental aspects. In several different studies, it has been shown that weight-loss surgery patients who have surgery to remove excess skin were more likely to keep the weight off compared to those who didn't have contouring procedures.
