What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that smooths the brow area and forehead and reduces wrinkles, folds, furrows, and sagging skin in the area by tightening the skin above the brows.
How can a Brow Lift improve my appearance?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, rejuvenates your appearance by improving visible signs of the aging process, such as wrinkles, creases, folds, furrows, and sagging skin on the forehead and in the brow region. This procedure creates smooth, youthful contours above the eyes to replace the tired, angry or worried expression normally caused by furrowed brows and deep creases in the forehead.
Who is an ideal candidate for a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery is safe for almost any adult in good health who has no conditions that may contraindicate surgery. An ideal candidate for a brow lift is someone who wants to eliminate wrinkles on the forehead and brow area. If you have already been using temporary treatments, such as neurotoxins, to diminish the appearance of creases and folds in your brow area, a brow lift may provide the perfect permanent solution. Patients with a normal to low hairline are ideal for this procedure to avoid enlarging the forehead. Also, patients with normal to thick hair are ideal to camouflage the incisions.
What happens during the Brow Lift procedure?
A brow lift is a relatively simple surgical procedure. Twilight anesthesia is used, and the procedure typically takes less than two hours to complete. Scars are usually camouflaged in the hairline. The procedure involves trimming off excess loose skin, producing a firmer and smoother facial contour improving upon a tired or angry appearance.
Recovery after a Brow Lift
You may initially experience some soreness, bruising, and swelling, as well as tightness in the skin after the surgery, but these symptoms will subside in a few days. Most patients will require 10 to 14 days to recover from the procedure, and you must take certain precautions, such as avoiding strenuous exercise and direct sun exposure for about four to six weeks following the procedure.
How much does a Brow Lift cost in Melbourne, Florida?
