A facelift is performed to pull the lower one-third of the facial skin upward. This is a rather simple procedure that corrects skin sagging on the cheeks, jawline and neck. Some individuals are concerned about forehead folds and do not feel that they need any sort of corrective measures taken on skin wrinkling on the face or neck.
A brow lift is performed to smooth out the forehead skin. It is a popular cosmetic treatment for adult men and women who have long, horizontal creases on the forehead skin.
We encourage you to schedule a consultation with the office of J. Anthony Stephens, MD to discuss these alternative treatments and to help you decide if a brow lift is the proper cosmetic procedure for you.
During a typical brow lift procedure, the skin is pulled upward, and some of the tissue may need to be repositioned in addition to muscles being adjusted.
What You Can Expect
It is extremely important to discuss brow lift options with us before deciding to undergo the procedure. Before the surgery, we will review your medical history and perform a simple physical examination.
We will recommend cessation of the use of anti-inflammatory drugs and certain herbal supplements because the use of these can cause excess bleeding.
After the surgery, we will bandage the forehead. The head may have to remain elevated as much as possible for the next week or so, even at night.
Normal activities can be resumed in a week or so, but it’s best to contact us first before beginning rigorous exercise or performing physical labor.
The brow lift isn’t a permanent solution for sagging forehead skin, but the results often last for years.
