The Brow Lift is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure that is performed to reduce those unwanted signs of aging in the forehead. The Brow Lift can also correct a heavy, sagging brow that may be genetic. The Brow Lift is a surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that can create a more smooth and youthful appearance, reduce lines and wrinkles, and create more a open and alert appearance in the eyes.
The Brow Lift is performed on both men and women of various ages–we’ve seen as young as 30’s and up. Each person ages differently and at a different pace depending on genetics and lifestyle. Many people feel self-conscious when they see these unwanted signs of aging set in–they feel as if they are constantly projecting a tired, angry, or worried appearance.
Today there are a number of facial rejuvenation procedures available to help hold off the hands of time, some more invasive than others–the right treatment for you just depends on the type of issues you are dealing with. Botox and dermal fillers are non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment options that are great for many people, but someone with more advanced skin sagging and wrinkles, may need a surgical option to achieve the results they are looking for.
Brow Lift surgery is performed in a hospital under anesthesia. The incision is made in the hairline in an endoscopic incision (which uses a tiny camera and a smaller incision) or across the scalp (for a traditional, full brow lift) with the goal of making the incision hidden so you don’t see incision scars. Excess skin is then removed, muscles are repositioned, and the incision is sutured close. Brow Lift recovery can vary from patient to patient but most patients will need about 10 days of rest before returning to work after the procedure.
