Who Can Get a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery can refresh signs of aging around the eyes, especially drooping skin, falling eyebrows, and wrinkles.
Other procedures, like Botox, chemical peels, and fat transfers, may help to alleviate these concerns; however, for some men and women, a brow lift is the best method. The brow lift surgery can be combined with a facelift if desired.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Dr. Sadeghi will determine whether a coronal brow lift or subcutaneous lift will work best for you. A coronal lift involves an incision across the very top of the face, near the hairline. Skin and muscle are then gently pulled up to reduce sagging and drooping in the brow area.
Risks of the Brow Lift Procedure
Because skin is reattached near the hairline with a coronal brow lift, some patients find that the scar is not completely hidden by their hairline. There is also a risk of developing numbness in the scalp. Some patients experience a raised hairline.
Patients should note that a brow lift won’t correct for extra eyelid skin. However, Dr. Sadeghi can correct that with a different procedure.
You can find before and after pictures in our patient gallery, or browse testimonials to see the results of other patients’ brow lift surgeries.
Recovering From Your Brow Lift
As you recover from your procedure, your forehead may be taped or bandaged to minimize swelling. Keeping your head elevated, and avoiding strenuous activity, will help your surgical site heal more quickly.
Initial healing usually takes from 10 days to two weeks. Most patients are easily able to return to their normal routines after two weeks.
