What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, often referred to as a forehead lift, helps reduce and eliminate any wrinkles that are present on the forehead. Wrinkles in between the eyes and on the bridge of the nose may also be eliminated. In addition, a brow lift is able to remove frown lines and sagging skin on the brows and to place the eyebrows in a better position.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
A patient may receive a brow lift for many reasons. Some of the benefits of a brow lift include the following:
- 1Provides natural-looking results
- 2Increases confidence in your appearance
- 3Gives long-lasting results
- 4Removes wrinkles on the forehead
- 5Creates a youthful look
- 6Corrects uneven and drooping eyebrows
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
The brow lift procedure is performed with the use of general anesthesia. An incision is made right below the hairline on the forehead of the patient. Once the incision is made, the skin is then lifted to remove wrinkles and reposition the eyebrows. Once the skin is lifted, the excess skin that remains is then removed, and the incision on the hairline is sutured.
Preparing for Your Brow Lift Procedure
Several weeks before the procedure, it is important for you to stop smoking. In addition, your plastic surgeon may direct you to stop taking certain medications that may hinder your results or cause increased bleeding. The day of the surgery, you are typically advised not to eat or drink, as you will receive anesthesia.
Brow Lift Recovery
Once the procedure is done, you will receive aftercare instructions and will need to follow them. You may need to continue to wear bandages on the incision for a few days after the procedure. Swelling and mild discomfort are possible, and you can reduce the swelling by using an ice pack.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Procedure Cost?
The cost of a brow lift will vary from patient to patient. We are happy to discuss all financing options with you when you come in for your initial consultation.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
Most patients who choose to have the procedure done are older patients whose eyelids have begun to droop or sag. If you have wrinkles on your forehead, a brow lift is a great solution. Younger candidates, under the age of 30, do not often have this procedure performed, unless there is a need for it (which may include hereditary problems).
