With age come wrinkles, lines, and creases on the face. One area that often causes women stress is the forehead, which is prone to deep wrinkles due to constant muscle movement. Long, deep horizontal wrinkles in the forehead or short vertical lines between the eyebrows can prematurely age a person. They can also cause the unintended appearance of looking sad, tired, angry, or stressed. Fortunately, a plastic surgery procedure known as a brow lift is available.
Patients will be completely sedated during a traditional brow lift, as general anesthesia is typically used. An incision across the forehead and below the hairline is made. The skin is then lifted in order to smooth wrinkles and reposition the brows. Once this step is completed, any excess skin will be removed, and the incision is sealed with sutures.
Following a brow lift, patients will need to avoid strenuous activities until the incisions have fully healed. Doctor Stephens or a member of our team will go over all of the preparation and recovery processes with you, to ensure you know what to expect prior to surgery.
At J. Anthony Stephens Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, we offer brow lifts to help restore a more youthful appearance. During your consultation with Dr. Stephens, we will review them both in detail and determine which is right for you. Contact J.
