The treatment produces a more youthful appearance without the need for a full face lift. It lifts and tightens the brow area, making the patient look more alert and providing a rejuvenated appearance. A brow lift can:
- Minimize the creases/wrinkles that can develop with age across the forehead, high on the bridge of the nose, and between and around the eyes
- Reduce the look of frown lines
- Reposition a low or sagging brow that creates a hood effect on the eyelids
- Raise the eyebrows to appear more alert and youthful on your face
A brow lift is designed to correct natural problems caused by aging and gravity, which restores a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved facial skin tone and underlying muscle structure.
A brow lift affects the forehead, eye area, and the upper bridge of the nose, including the eyebrows and eye lids. The skin is smoothed, reducing or removing wrinkles and fine lines and if necessary the tissue above the eyelids is reshaped to reduce the “hooded” look.
As with any surgery, there is the potential for complications. Careful preparation helps reduce the risks. The best candidates for a brow lift surgery are non-smokers in good health. Be sure to discuss any medications you may be taking, including natural supplements or vitamins. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatories, or any other supplements that can increase bleeding or bruising.
Swelling should go down within a few weeks of the procedure. Final results will appear in 1-2 months, and the incision lines should fade fully over the course of a year.
