Brow Lift and Forehead Lift
Brow lift and forehead lift procedures are used to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
Several small incisions are generally made on the top of the head near the hairline but hidden from sight. The forehead and brows are elevated and stabilized with resorbable plastic screws. This technique allows us to perform forehead lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an endoscope and specialized instruments. This makes the surgery much less invasive.
Brow Lift and Forehead Lift Post-Operative Information
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur which should subside within a few weeks. Our doctor will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics usually up to one week after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1 to 2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
