Brow lift plastic surgery is a procedure to improve the appearance of the facial region between the upper eyelids and the scalp, extending to the temples. The procedure improves low placement or sagging of the brows, and minimizes the appearance of lines and creases in the forehead. These conditions may be due to heredity or can be attributed to the natural aging process. By reducing furrows and other signs of aging in the forehead and brow areas, creating a softer, relaxed and rejuvenated facial appearance.
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under intravenous anesthesia. The incisions are usually made behind the hairline. For patients with high foreheads, the incisions can be placed in front of the hairline. The forehead skin is lifted and repositioned. The muscles that cause frown lines are weakened.
Recuperation and Healing:
The patient goes home with head wrapped in dressings, which are usually removed on the first or second day after surgery. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral pain medication. Sutures or staples are removed within 10 days. Most swelling and bruising is gone in 7-10 days. Remember everyone heals differently.
