Brow Lift Q&A
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure that lifts your eyebrows and reduces the signs of aging. It also improves the appearance of the area around your eyes as Dr. Heringer raises soft tissue and smoothes out wrinkled skin on your forehead.
A brow lift can be a stand-alone procedure or combined with blepharoplasty for an overall rejuvenated appearance in the upper portion of your face.
How can I benefit from a brow lift?
When you have a sagging or heavy browline, you may appear tired, angry, or worried, even when you aren’t.
A brow lift directly addresses these concerns, reduces the deeply furrowed brow, and lifts muscle, skin, and soft tissue for a smoother, refreshed appearance. Some of the benefits of a brow lift include:
- Eyes appear brighter and more open
- Look more approachable, and no longer worried or distressed
- Improved self-confidence
- Tighter, firmer skin, and fewer visible forehead wrinkles
- Look years younger
A brow lift may also help if you have sagging skin above your eyes. For total rejuvenation of your eyes and forehead, you may benefit from a brow lift and blepharoplasty — surgery to improve the appearance of drooping eyelids.
Dr. Heringer takes an artistic, minimally invasive approach to your individual brow lift, so you get natural-looking results and minimal scarring.
What is an endoscopic brow lift?
Dr. Heringer uses state-of-the-art technology for all procedures he performs, and a brow lift is no exception. He uses a tiny surgical camera, called an endoscope, and makes small incisions along your hairline.
This technique minimizes visible scars and allows Dr. Heringer to insert the endoscope just below the surface of your skin. The endoscope displays the images on a screen so Dr. Heringer can lift the underlying muscle and tissue for a firmer, smoother forehead and browline.
He closes the tiny incisions and although you’ll have some bruising and swelling immediately afterward, recovery time is just a week to 10 days.
If forehead lines and a drooping browline concern you, consider a brow lift. Dr. Heringer answers all your questions and recommends the best procedures for your needs during your consultation so you know what to expect.
