Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)
A brow and forehead lift is a surgical procedure used to raise the eyebrows and eliminate deep creases, furrows and frown lines that form between the brows and along the forehead. Also known as expression lines, these wrinkles are often too deep to adequately respond to topical applications or cosmetic fillers. In more severe cases, the brow may hang low or sag over the eyes, causing the face to appear tired or heavily aged. Lifting the brow can restore a more youthful appearance that can last many years.
Am I a good candidate for a brow lift?
You may be a candidate for a brow lift if you have a sagging brow or deep lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your upper eye area. A consultation with Dr. Shetty will help you determine whether a brow lift is right for you.
What should I expect during a brow lift procedure?
The brow lift procedure is done under general anesthesia. During this time, Dr.Shetty will make an incision – either along your hairline or across the top of your head from ear to ear. It is via this incision that your surgeon will carefully lift your forehead and remove excess skin from your scalp.
What post-operative instructions will I need to follow after my forehead and brow lift surgery?
A post operative stay in the hospital of a day or two will be required. A dressing and sutures will need to be taken care of. A drain or a thin tube may be placed to reduce the collection and swelling. Regular visits for post op consultation will be required.
