Brow lift surgery, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, can eliminate droopiness from the brow and reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging on the forehead. This comprehensive procedure can help patients look younger, more alert and even happier.
More about Brow Lift Surgery
Wrinkles on the forehead and around the brow can cause individuals to look angry, concerned or upset, even when they are none of those things. Brow lift surgery solves this problem, helping patients look youthful and refreshed by eliminating wrinkles, creases between the brows and droopy eyelids. Brow lift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift or neck lift. Dr. Kate Kottwitz is able to help patients achieve an attractive, natural-looking appearance.
Brow Lift Candidates
While there is no restriction on the age of a forehead lift patient, the typical patient is between the ages of 40 and 65, with mild to moderate signs of aging. Some individuals experience signs of aging in their 30s, however, and may consider a forehead lift earlier in life. During your consultation, Dr. Kottwitz will examine your facial features and review your medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for brow lift. Typically, a forehead lift is appropriate for patients who:
- Are experiencing signs of aging around the brow such as sagging skin or wrinkles
- Are in good overall health
- Do not smoke, or are able to quit smoking for a period before and after treatment
- Have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure
Brow Lift Procedure Details
A brow lift procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients are able to go home on the same day as their procedure.
During the procedure, an incision is made behind the ear and across the forehead so that any scarring will be hidden inside the hairline when the patient has completely recovered. The skin of the forehead is then lifted and excess tissue is removed and repositioned. Once Dr. Kottwitz has made the necessary changes, the area is closed with sutures.
Patients who undergo forehead lift should expect minor swelling, discomfort and some numbness after the procedure. Dr. Kottwitz provides thorough post-operative instructions to ensure a safe and speedy recovery period. Most patients are able to return to work within 2 weeks and can resume normal, non-strenuous daily activities in about 1 week.
