A brow lift is a surgical procedure performed through small incisions behind the hairline and is designed to help improve the appearance of the upper one-third of the face. This includes the area above the eyes up to your hairline and extends across to your temples.
Is a Brow Lift Right For Me?
Brow lifts are routinely performed on both men and women to help minimize creases, frown lines, and wrinkles on the forehead. After having a brow lift, you can expect to have a more youthful and alert appearance. During your consultation your surgeon will go over realistic outcomes that you can have for your procedure and smoking restrictions.
Your Brow Lift Surgery
Before Surgery: Our plastic surgeons will see you in an initial consultation. The consultation offers you an opportunity to meet with the surgeon of your choice to ask questions. Your surgeon will also review your health history and brow lift goals to determine if a brow lift, or a combination of facial rejuvenation procedures, is right for you. Computerized imaging is available for all of our facial cosmetic procedures.
Day of Surgery: Your brow lift will be performed in our fully accredited in-office surgical suite or in a same day surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. Normally, IV sedation with local anesthesia will be used for your procedure. A brow lift typically takes approximately 1-2 hours.
Recovery: You can expect to be in recovery for 45 minutes to 1 hour before being discharged. For the first week following your brow lift it is recommended that you rest and keep your head elevated to minimize swelling. Typically patients can wash their hair 24 hours after surgery and return to work within a few days of surgery.
