What is Brow Lift Surgery?
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift can achieve several cosmetic goals including:
- Reducing wrinkle lines that develop across the forehead, on the bridge of the nose and around the eyes
- Improving the vertical frown lines in between the eyebrows
- Raising sagging foreheads
- Eliminating hooding on the upper eyelids
- Placing eyebrows in a more alert position
During a typical brow lift procedure, Dr. Stephens places discreet incisions behind the hairline and around the ears for minimal scarring. For patients who are bald or have thinning hair, these incisions will be adjusted accordingly. This allows Dr. Stephens full access to the underlying forehead structure underneath the skin.
In order to tighten and firm your brow, Dr. Stephens will surgically remove tissues and adjust the muscles. Excess skin on the forehead is trimmed and the remaining skin is redraped. The incision sites are then sutured or clipped.
What is the Recovery Like?
After surgery, Dr. Stephens will protect your new forehead contours with gauze or bandages. Initial wound healing can take anywhere from 10-14 days, and Dr. Stephens will remove the sutures once you have healed properly.
Although most patients are able to return to work and normal activities after two weeks, Dr. Stephens will advise you on how much time you should realistically take off in order to ensure proper healing.
Am I a Good Candidate for Brow Lift Surgery?
Brow lift surgery is typically performed on men and women who have visible signs of aging or lax skin in the forehead area. During your consultation with Dr. Stephens, factors such as your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be evaluated in order to determine if brow lift surgery is right for you.
In some cases, brow lift surgery can be paired with other surgical procedures in order to optimize results. The options that are available to you can be discussed during your initial visit.
