A Brow Lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows. As we age, unsightly wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead. Frown lines between the brows can make us look angry or too serious. Skin relaxation may cause the eyebrows to drop, holding our upper eyelids and making us look tired. If you are bothered by these signs of aging in the brow region, a Brow Lift may be right for you.
You will be given anesthesia so that you will be comfortable during the surgical procedures. Your surgeon will suggest either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
Brow Lifts can be performed in different ways: Endoscopic or Coronal Incisions. Some surgeons prefer using an endoscope and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be adjusted, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead.
Once the surgery is done some typical incisions closed with skin adhesives, special clips or removable/ absorbable sutures.
Results appear within a few weeks as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, rested appearance.
Also, you will need to apply daily sun protection and a healthy lifestyle will help extend the results of your Face Lift.
