Do you have droopy brows that make you look tired, angry, or upset? If you’re feeling bothered by sagging brows and forehead wrinkles, a brow lift will elevate your brows and give your forehead a relaxed, refreshed appearance.
What Does A Brow Lift Do?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the brows and forehead.
A brow lift can:
- Lift sagging eyebrows
- Smooth forehead wrinkles and lines
- Open up the eyes
- Correct hooding of the upper eyelids
- Restore the natural arch and shape of the eyebrows
- Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet
A forehead lift elevates sagging brows and gives the face a youthful, refreshed appearance, and it can be customized to suit the specific concerns of each patient.
What’s Involved In A Brow Lift?
A brow lift is an outpatient procedure that is done under general anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours to perform. The incisions for a brow lift are typically made just behind the hairline, so the surgeon can adjust the underlying tissue and muscle that is causing the furrowing and drooping of the brow. Excess skin and fat will also be removed during surgery.
When Will You See Results?
Patients may notice some improvement in the appearance of their forehead and brows immediately after a brow lift. However, there is typically some swelling and bruising that can take 1-2 weeks to resolve. Final results can be seen about 2-4 months after surgery.
Combining A Brow Lift With Other Procedures
A brow lift is sometimes combined with an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) for patients with heavy upper eyelids. Combining a facelift with a brow lift is also a popular choice for people that need to address signs of aging in the lower half of the face.
If you are bothered by droopy brows or forehead lines and creases, a brow lift can refresh your look and renew your confidence.
