A brow lift – or forehead lift – is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed, and cheery look to the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelid areas. By removing excess skin and muscle, the procedure corrects drooping brows, improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make you look angry, sad or tired, and tightens the skin of the upper eyelid. More and more Atlanta-area men and women are opting for a brow lift to give them a more-youthful appearance.
The brow lift incisions are well hidden along the frontal hairline or in the hair, and, with the use of an endoscope (a small camera that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions), the incisions are almost impossible to see. The type of incision to be used is dependent on your goals and desires.
A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with an eyelid lift or a facelift to provide a smoother, overall balanced look to the eyes and face. Our delicate touch and advanced endoscopic techniques mean less discomfort, less bruising, and a faster recovery.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
If you are wondering if a brow lift is right for you, put your hands above your brows and outside the edges of your eyes. Gently raise up the skin. If you have a sagging brow or deep furrows between the eyes, then a brow lift is something you might want to consider.
Most Atlanta-area men and women have this procedure after age 40, although, if necessary, it may be performed at a younger age.
What to Expect with Brow Lift Surgery
There will be a mild to moderate amount of pain and discomfort associated with your brow lift surgery. This should be easily controlled with oral medications. The discomfort and pain should begin to decrease within 48 hours after surgery. Severe pain is rare.
A sense of tightness in the forehead and brow region is to be expected after surgery. There will also be some tightness and discomfort over the top and back of the scalp as this entire area has also been repositioned with the surgery.
After the surgery, you will notice some bruising and swelling, especially over the upper eyelids and bridge of the nose. Occasionally the swelling may be enough to close the eyes.
In the first two to three weeks after surgery, the brows may appear to be excessively elevated. Don’t worry, as they will settle to a more normal position with time. Your final brow position will be appreciable at approximately six months.
