Look and Feel Your Best with Michigan's Preferred Board Certified Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon
A brow lift can be performed by endoscopic incision or coronal incision. During the former procedure, an endoscope—a thin tube with a camera on the end—is used to examine the inside of the body in a minimally invasive way. Next, small incisions are made within the hairline. The tissue and muscle beneath the skin, the source of visible wrinkles on the forehead, is then adjusted. During the coronal procedure, an incision is made from ear-to-ear, within the hairline, over the top of the head. The forehead skin is then lifted and the muscles are properly adjusted. Post-recovery, all scarring will be covered by the hair.
The surgery may take anywhere from four to five hours. Dressings will typically be removed from your face within two days after the surgery, and stitches will typically be removed within five to ten days after the surgery. You will experience temporary bruising and will be advised to keep your head elevated as much as possible to combat any swelling. After two to three weeks, you should be able to return to all normal activities.
A brow lift will ultimately leave you looking younger and more alert. Years of troublesome signs of aging will fade away. Many patients, post-surgery, feel a great boost in self-confidence. Many patients also feel a reduction in anxiety over the impending onslaught of yearly birthdays.
Are you ready to brighten up your beautiful brows?
Over the years, wrinkles that develop across the forehead and on the bridge of the nose can make us look much older than our years. As our eyebrows sag, we are prone to look tired even when we feel wide-awake. The brow lift procedure diminishes those bothersome wrinkles on the forehead as well those between the eyes. It will also raise sagging brows, leaving you with a younger and more alert expression.
It is important to discuss with your physician, prior to any surgery, the expectations that you have—what YOU expect the surgery to achieve. Your physician will help you determine the procedure that is best. A good surgeon should also make sure that the expectations you have regarding the ultimate results are realistic. Your surgeon should ensure that everything from the procedure to the healing time to the end results are clear to you from the get-go.
