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.
