Growing in popularity, brow lift (sometimes called forehead lift) reduces wrinkles, raises sagging eyebrows, and creates an overall look of rest and rejuvenation.
The aging process sometimes creates an appearance of frustration or irritation (furrowed brow, “angry eyes”). People may comment that — based on your expression — you seem upset or very serious, even if it doesn’t reflect your actual mood. Others will be hesitant to make contact, or view you as unapproachable and distant. This body sculpting option helps alleviate those and other concerns.
Here’s what you need to know about brow lift surgery:
Why Brow Lift?
Your face is the first thing people notice. You want to be sure that it reflects your true self, and real feelings. Following this procedure, many patients comment not only on their more youthful appearance, but more importantly the increased confidence this option provides.
When you feel good about yourself, you project that positive image. Being content with how you look and feel not only benefits your own quality of life, but helps everyone with whom you come into contact glean a sense of positive energy. In short, confidence and happiness are contagious.
This procedure smooths forehead wrinkles and repositions the brow line to its ideal position. The resulting effect is an appearance of cheerfulness, vitality, and vigor. There are various surgery options available. A qualified surgeon will help you determine which option is best for you.
Along with effectively “turning back the clock,” this option provides long-lasting benefits outside the surgeon’s office. Most notably is heightened self-esteem and self-confidence. Since the effects can last for years, many patients view the procedure as a life-changing experience.
In addition, it can actually improve your vision! Drooping foreheads, eyelids, and eyebrows can obstruct your view. After correcting these problem areas, many patients report they’re able to see better than before.
As mentioned, this procedure eliminates that perpetually angry or serious look. It smooths wrinkles and frown lines. By specifically addressing the area of the upper face, this procedure also helps “open the eyes,” which makes you look more alert, interested, and energetic.
Since each session is customized to the patient’s individual needs, you can be sure that your surgery will deliver the best options for you. This tailored approach helps create lasting, natural, beautiful results. In addition, brow lift can often be paired with other body sculpting options, further enhancing overall results.
What to Expect
In most cases, brow lift is performed using only general anesthesia. A small incision is made just below the hairline. The skin is then lifted (smoothing wrinkles), and eyebrows restored to a more natural position. Excess skin is also removed during this process.
Since everyone is different and requires unique care, it’s important to speak with your surgeon about your individual goals, as well as past medical history and other factors.
While some bruising and swelling is normal and to be expected, most patients within 10 to 14 days. Your surgeon will also provide you with care details, including head wrapping and applicable medication.
