What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, is a procedure whereby the skin on the upper brow and forehead is pulled up, lifted, trimmed, and tightened. This provides a smoother forehead, eliminating sagging brows to present a more youthful appearance. Brow lifts are performed under general anesthesia and take between one to two hours to complete.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
The forehead is one of the first areas of the face where deep wrinkling starts. Overexposure to the sun and repeated squinting can leave you with prominent furrows between your brows or lines across your forehead. Your eyebrows could even begin to droop, causing pressure on your eyelids that may cause them to sag prematurely. A brow lift can eliminate all of these issues, thereby erasing years off your appearance. Any scars are hidden naturally in your hairline and will therefore not be noticeable.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
If you are bothered by frown lines on your forehead or brow area, you may want to consider a forehead lift to reduce the signs of aging.
Elements of a Brow Lift
A brow lift begins with local or general anesthesia. Next, Dr. Flannagan will make an incision along your hairline to trim away excess tissue. He will then close the wound with stitches, pulling your hair down over the incision sites to hide the scars. You may then be given additional medication to help eliminate swelling.
How Long is the Recovery After a Brow Lift?
You may find it difficult to stare into the sun or bright lights for a few days afterward. We recommend wearing sunglasses or tinted reading glasses during that time to help you avoid eyestrain. Use caution when showering or washing your hair, as you should avoid getting your scalp wet in the area where the incisions were made until after your stitches have been removed. This will happen during your follow-up appointment, which will take place approximately one to two weeks after your procedure.
