A brow lift improves drooping or hooding eyebrows and wrinkles in the forehead
and results in a more rested appearance, lifted eyebrows, and improved forehead
skin tone. It is sometimes combined with rhytidectomy (facelift) to improve the
appearance of the upper face.
Surgery and Recovery
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or sedation, and patients
go home the same day. Bruising and swelling to subside in 7-14 days. Scars are
left inside the scalp area just above the forehead skin, take 6-12 months to
mature and frequently results in numbness of the scalp behind the scar.
Please schedule a consultation and examination so we can discuss the risks
and benefits of this procedure and determine if a forehead/browlift is right for you.
Please note, any patient
considering cosmetic plastic surgery procedures should be in overall
good health and currently a non-smoker.
