Is a Brow Lift Right for You?
Often, the most noticeable signs of aging occur in the brow. Our skin loses elasticity over time, and as a result, you may develop horizontal creases in your forehead and a pair of vertical lines, sometimes called the 11s, between your eyes. Your eyebrows may begin to droop, leading to a “hooded” effect around your eyes. If you are experiencing these effects, are in good overall health, and don't smoke, you may be a candidate for a brow lift. Your surgeon will conduct a thorough review of your medical history and take careful note of your goals and needs to determine if you are a candidate for brow lift surgery.
What Can a Brow Lift Achieve?
After your tissues have settled into their enhanced positions, you can enjoy the full results of your brow lift. These include:
- Reduced or eliminated horizontal creases
- Reduced or eliminated frown lines
- Raised eyebrows
- Less excess skin around your eyes
- Minimal, easily concealed scarring
The Endoscopic Brow Lift Procedure
Before your surgery, you will have a complete consultation. Your surgeon will plan a treatment to fit your specific goals and needs.
To perform your brow lift, your surgeon will use a state-of-the-art surgical camera, or endoscope. With this advanced approach, he will create small incisions along your hairline, making it easy to conceal the resulting scars. However, if you have a naturally high hairline, your surgeon can create a longer, beveled incision running parallel to the hairline to provide you with the best possible aesthetic results.
After creating the incisions, your surgeon will insert the endoscope just below your skin. The camera will display a highly detailed image on a computer screen. Your surgeon will lift the underlying muscle and tissue to achieve your desired results. Finally, he will close the incisions.
After your brow lift, you will experience some swelling and bruising. Ice packs and over-the-counter medication can help maintain comfort during recovery. Your surgeon will typically remove your stitches about a week after your surgery. Around this time, bruises should fade significantly. You can usually return to work about a week to ten days after your brow lift. However, it may take four to six weeks for the aesthetic results of surgery to become fully apparent.
