A brow lift is a procedure that can revitalize your appearance with very little work involved. Aside from enhancing how you look, this procedure can remove wrinkles and some of the frown lines that are around your eyes. When you see the final results, you might think that you’ve entered a time machine and are a few years younger.

When you arrive at our office, you’ll discuss the details of the brow lift so that you know what to expect. Before you make the decision to have the procedure performed, you’ll talk to our doctor about the results that you expect and why you want lifted brows. There are pictures that you can look at so that you can get a better idea as to what you might look like and so that you have ideas for how you want your end result to look.

Anesthesia is one of the first steps when you have a brow lift. Our doctor will want you to be as comfortable as possible. General anesthesia can be used, but you might be given a combination of local anesthesia and sedation. The procedures takes up to two hours to complete.

An endoscope is used so that the scar is minimal. The tissues are easily adjusted as instruments are inserted through the space that the endoscope creates. Once the muscles are adjusted, creases and frown lines will almost automatically go away. The skin on the forehead is lifted so that the doctor can easily adjust the muscles before closing the skin.

After the bruising and swelling go away, you can begin to see the fruits of your labor. Your forehead won’t have the wrinkles and creases that were there before. Your brows will be lifted as well, giving you a positive appearance and one that is happy instead of one that appears to be sagging.

Recovery after an endoscopic procedure is almost always shorter than the recovery time associated with a traditional surgical procedure. In about ten days you should be able to return to work, although strenuous activities may need to be avoided for up to several weeks. Other aftercare instructions can be covered with you in further detail at your consultation.
