Look Younger, More Alert with a Brow Lift
Time can have a way of etching itself onto your face, especially in the forehead region. If you’ve noticed that horizontal or vertical lines have begun to appear on your forehead, even when your face is in a relaxed state, you might benefit from a brow lift.
Also called a forehead lift, this surgical procedure can take years off your appearance by:
- Lifting the eyebrows
- Reducing frown lines
- Tightening loose skin
- Minimizing creases in the upper third of your face
- Making you look more alert and less tired
A brow lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure; this 2-hour procedure can have a dramatic, positive effect on your appearance.
A brow lift procedure involves making one or more incisions, usually in the hairline area, to reposition/remodel/remove muscle, tissue and skin to achieve a smoother forehead region. The incisions may be closed with temporary staples or screws, sutures, surgical tape or adhesives to keep the elevated brow in its new position. Temporary fixation items will typically be removed in 1-2 weeks.
There may be swelling and bruising during this recovery period. Patients should follow their doctor’s instructions precisely during brow lift recovery to reduce the risk of complications.
