What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a facial plastic surgery procedure that is designed to correct sagging and wrinkles in the forehead and brow areas. During a brow lift, the skin above the brows is tightened and smoothed, restoring a refreshed, alert, and more youthful appearance.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
Brow lift surgery restores a fresh, smooth, youthful appearance to the upper facial area by eliminating the wrinkles, creases, vertical lines, and deep folds that develop on the forehead as a consequence of aging. This procedure may easily restore a more youthful facial appearance by creating a naturally more alert expression around the eyes. There are various different types of brow lift or forehead lift surgeries to address individual concerns and provide personalized, natural-looking results.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Most patients seeking a brow lift have begun noticing signs of aging on their face, particularly in the form of deep forehead creases or sagging brows. Some patients have already tried temporary solutions such as dermal filler injections but now seek a long-term solution. A brow lift or forehead lift surgery may be right for you if you believe the wrinkles on your forehead and brow area cause you to look tired, sleepy, or grumpy even when you don’t feel that way. Brow lift surgery may be performed on most adults who are in good overall health.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
A brow lift is a simple and safe procedure that requires approximately two hours to perform. It may be performed as endoscopic surgery using tiny incisions, special surgical instruments, and a camera. Endoscopes are often used to minimize scarring. During the procedure, excess skin and fat along the forehead are removed to tighten the skin in the brow area and create a smoother facial contour.
How Long is the Recovery Period after a Brow Lift?
Most patients require about 10 to 14 days to recover from brow lift surgery. You should avoid strenuous exercise and direct sun exposure for at least a month. Some patients experience side effects during the recovery period, such as soreness, tenderness, bruising, and swelling. Some patients may also experience skin tightness or temporary numbness, but these symptoms will resolve in a few days.
How Much Does A Brow Lift Cost?
The price of a brow or forehead lift may vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of surgical work required, the surgical techniques used, and other factors. Your health insurance provider may not cover brow lift surgery, so our office provides easy financing terms via CareCredit®, Bank SNB, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. We also accept cash, checks, and credit cards as payment options.
