Over time, the forehead can begin to show signs of aging that can affect the entire facial aesthetic. Lines begin to form across the forehead and between the eyebrows, and gravity causes skin to sag, which can cause the upper eyelids to look heavy and tired. If you have experienced any of these concerns and are unhappy with their effect on your facial appearance, you may be a good candidate for the browlift, also known as the forehead lift.
Our plastic surgeons utilize the browlift procedure to elevate the forehead to a more youthful position while maintaining a natural look. Should you want a more comprehensive transformation, the browlift can be combined with other procedures, such as facelift, eyelid surgery, or BOTOX® injections. For more information, please contact us to schedule your consultation.
The Browlift Procedure
Prior to the surgery, you will be given deep sedation or general anesthesia to help you remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Your surgeon will then begin the procedure by making an incision behind your hairline, which will allow potential scarring in the future to easily be concealed. The skin of the forehead will then be repositioned, and any excess tissue will be removed while muscles are adjusted. If necessary, your eyebrows may also be elevated. Our goal is to rejuvenate your appearance by providing a refreshed, younger-looking aesthetic.
The browlift is typically done as an outpatient procedure, but if you undergo additional procedures, your surgeon may have you stay overnight for better monitoring and to help you feel more comfortable. Following the surgery, it is normal to experience some discomfort and numbness around the incision site, but this can be remedied with prescription medication. Swelling should dissipate within the first couple weeks, and to help minimize the symptom, we recommend keeping your head elevated. Patients typically feel ready to return to work and resume most of their daily activities after about seven to ten days.
If you are interested in refreshing your facial appearance, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team to determine the most beneficial way to reach your aesthetic goals.
