What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, addresses the upper third of the face, not including the area around the eyes. This procedure offers several benefits for improving your forehead and browline. First, it creates a youthful appearance by smoothing forehead lines and wrinkles. It also reduces the depth of the vertical lines between the eyebrows, and repositions the eyebrows. By correcting a heavy, sagging brow, you achieve a more youthful contour to your face and show a more refreshed appearance. A brow lift is commonly performed in conjunction with other surgeries, such as a facelift.
You and your surgeon will discuss and determine your type of brow lift procedure during your consultation. We will also address your medical history, current health status, and attainable goals.
We typically use IV sedation or general anesthesia when performing a brow lift. Your surgeon will make small incisions within the hairline using an endoscope, which minimizes scar tissue and accelerates healing. Your surgeon will carefully elevate the underlying tissues before stitching the skin back in place. Lastly, your surgeon will remove any excess skin. Then you will rest comfortably in our office until you are ready to return home. We will provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions, which you are expected to follow closely to ensure a smooth recovery.
