In cosmetic surgery, a brow lift or forehead rejuvenation can improve the appearance of wrinkles and aging in the forehead and brows. Using this technique, the brows are lifted and the forehead’s skin is smoothed, giving the face a younger, more refreshed appearance.
The brow and forehead are the first parts of the face to show signs of aging. The elasticity of our skin decreases as we age, resulting in wrinkles and creases. The appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead can be reduced by a brow lift, as can sagging and drooping brows, which accentuate the signs of aging.
Candidates for brow lifts have deep forehead creases, frown lines between the brows, sagging upper eyelid skin, and hooding over their eyes. A brow lift can be performed alone or as part of a larger facial rejuvenation that includes a facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), and nose reshaping (rhinoplasty).Schedule Appointment
You might benefit from a brow lift if time and gravity have caused your brow to sag and make you look serious, angry, or tired. It is most common for brow lift candidates to be between the ages of 40 and 65. However, younger patients with a genetic predisposition to a heavy brow or deep ‘worry’ lines between the brows may also be suitable candidates.
With a surgical brow lift, the soft tissues and skin of your forehead and brow are lifted to correct creases, frown lines, and sagging eyebrows. Furrows or frown lines above the nose, as well as heavy, low brow lines, are lifted and improved. With a brow lift, you can improve the appearance of your forehead, brow, and area around your eyes.
It is true that eyebrows can greatly enhance the appearance of the face. A brow lift can make you look younger and more energetic. Excess skin and wrinkles on the forehead will be removed during the procedure. Additionally, it opens up the eyes by reducing sagging eyelids.Schedule Appointment
What should you expect from brow lift surgery? The first step will be to consult with your plastic surgeon. Dr. John Louis is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 17 years of experience performing successful brow lifts. During your consultation, he will ask you a few questions about your medical history and perform a physical examination. He’ll tell you how the procedure will change your appearance and what it won’t do.
The purpose of a brow lift is to tighten loose skin, smooth forehead wrinkles, and lift drooping brows. To smooth out the brow and give it a more relaxed expression, the surgeon might remove a portion of the muscle that causes vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.
This procedure will primarily rejuvenate the eyes, making them appear more rested and youthful. Despite its ability to improve the appearance of the face, a brow lift doesn’t change the shape of the eyes.
A brow lift is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. In most cases, a brow lift takes between an hour and two hours; however, if it is combined with another cosmetic procedure, it may take longer. Recovery can take up to two weeks before you can return to work and resume your normal activities.Schedule Appointment
Patients report little to no pain after a brow lift. There may be some discomfort or tightness in their foreheads. For the first two weeks following surgery, there may be swelling and bruising. It is important to follow the instructions of your doctor, who may also prescribe anti-inflammatory and pain medication.
Despite being a standard cosmetic surgery, a brow lift is still major surgery and all surgery involves some level of risk. It is rare though for brow lift surgery to cause complications when performed by an experienced and qualified professional. Any potential risks will be discussed with you by your plastic surgeon so that you can make an informed decision.
Due to the fact that the incisions are well concealed within the hairline, the scarring from a brow lift is minimal.
