Brow lift surgery can improve the appearance of sagging eyebrows, creases along the forehead, frown lines, furrows between the brows, and other signs of age and stress. Sagging of the eyebrows can result in excess skin of the upper eyelids and even the loss of the ability to raise the eyebrows. The normal use of the muscles in facial expression causes creases and skin folds which become more pronounced over time. Our New Hampshire plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Zeff, performs brow lift surgery (also known as forehead lift) as an effective, long-term solution to these common concerns.
FAQ : Brow Lift
Q: Which brow lift procedure is right for me?
A: That depends upon your needs, as each technique treats different problems. A coronal forehead lift works well in correcting brow droop and deep wrinkles, the less invasive endoscopic brow lift can correct mild brow droop and wrinkles, and the subcutaneous forehead lift works well to avoid raising the hairline further, although scars are more visible.
Q: When may the final result of brow lift be seen?
A: Most patients will see their final results in two to four weeks.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow Lift is most often done in conjunction with a facelift. By itself, the procedure is performed through an incision made above the hairline (residual scarring should be well-hidden and virtually undetectable to others). Our plastic surgeon will remove excess tissue. Closure results in elevation of the eyebrows and smoothing of the forehead.
Brow Lift Recovery
Some bruising and swelling is common and fades rapidly; discomfort, if any, can be alleviated with medication. Many patients are able to resume normal daily routines within 7 to 10 days after the operation. Dr. Zeff recommends that you avoid strenuous activities for several weeks following the procedure.
