What is the goal of a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, tightens, rejuvenates, and refreshes the upper facial area around the forehead and eyebrows. The brow lift surgically removes bags of sagging skin from the brow area, eliminating lines and vertical creases between the eyebrows, as well as horizontal creases across the forehead.
What kind of results does a Brow Lift accomplish?
A brow lift rejuvenates the facial appearance by tightening the upper facial region, achieving the following results:
- Lifts and tightens hanging skin in the brow region that may obstruct the patient’s vision.
- Trims excess skin from thick, heavy eyebrows to make the eyes stand out more.
- Elevates the eyebrows to a higher position, producing a more alert and youthful facial expression.
- Erases wrinkles, creases, and horizontal lines across the forehead.
- Erases vertical creases and lines between the eyebrows.
- Restores symmetry and balance to eyebrows that are uneven or asymmetrical.
How is a Brow Lift performed?
The brow lift is performed under general anesthesia, using either the traditional method or the newer, less invasive endoscopic technique. Both procedures require a tiny incision through which Dr. Austin or Dr. Medina gently lifts the skin of the forehead, extracts excess fat, tightens muscle tissue, and trims away excess skin, producing a smooth and refreshed appearance.
Can a Brow Lift be performed along with other procedures?
Many of our patients at Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery choose to combine the brow lift with other procedures, such as blepharoplasty to eliminate sagging skin around the eyes, or a neck lift to rejuvenate and tone the lower face and neck. Other procedures, such as SmartLipo™, may further enhance your facial rejuvenation, providing increased sculpting and definition.
How should I plan for recovery after a Brow Lift?
Plan to have a friend or family member drive you home after your surgery and provide routine care for several days while you restfully after your surgery. You will have to keep your head elevated for the first 48 hours, and there may be some swelling, numbness, and soreness around the incision area, as well as the eyes, nose, and cheeks, but this naturally subsides within a few days. In rare cases, patients may experience hair loss around the incision, but normal hair growth resumes naturally within a few weeks. The endoscopic brow lift causes significantly less discomfort than the traditional surgery, with a shorter recovery period.
