Brow lift (also known as forehead lift) is a popular oculoplastics surgical procedure that can smooth deep forehead lines and unwanted furrows while making your whole face look refreshed. Our skilled surgeons typically perform brow lift for people in their 40s, 50s and 60s. However, sometimes younger patients with pronounced forehead lines undergo brow lift to obtain a more rejuvenated appearance.
Visit our contact page to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced doctors if you would like to learn more about the brow lift procedure. In some instances the brow lift procedure is considered medically necessary and may be covered by your insurance policy. Our dedicated specialists will perform a thorough evaluation, discuss your aesthetic goals and needs and recommend the most suitable procedure(s). Sometimes, they might suggest additional procedures, such as eyelid surgery or Botox, to achieve better facial rejuvenation results.
Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift is usually performed under local anesthesia, which means that you are sedated but awake during the procedure. Depending on your needs and facial structure, the complete treatment takes between one and two hours. First, our surgeons make an incision in an inconspicuous area, such as along your hairline or within the scalp. Then they carefully lift the forehead skin, tighten the underlying muscle tissue and remove any excess skin. After the procedure is completed, a special bandage is wrapped around your head and you can go home within a couple of hours.
After Brow Lift
After your brow lift, you might experience some discomfort, such as swelling and soreness. Our doctors can prescribe medications to effectively ease these symptoms. You might also experience a headache, which is usually a side effect of anesthesia and improves within several hours. All stitches and staples are removed within two weeks, and you are able to resume all of your regular activities within approximately four weeks.
