Who Is An Ideal Candidate For A Brow Lift?

As we grow older, skin laxity diminishes and causes parts of the face to sag. This is especially true of the upper face region and impacts both women and men. If you look at yourself in the mirror and feel that you appear tired, see deep wrinkles in between the eyebrows, or are bothered by your drooping brow, a surgical brow lift at SSK Plastic Surgery may be the right cosmetic procedure for your goals.

How Is Brow Lift Surgery Performed?

Prior to surgery, general anesthesia will be administered. This can be done through general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on the nature of the surgery. The incision technique used during a brow lift is determined based on the severity of sag, whether or not the forehead is affected, and the position of the hairline, should the incision be placed there. There are a few kinds of brow lift surgery to consider during your consultation at SSK Plastic Surgery:

  • Traditional Incision
    This is the open brow lift incision, which places the incision at the top of the head behind the hairline. This incision not only hides scarring, but it provides a certain degree of controlled lifting during the procedure. This type of incision works well for those with both a sagging brow and frown lines and is the preferred method if you are at risk of having a receding hairline.
  • Trichophytic Incision
    This incision is placed right along the hairline. It allows for significant lifting of the brow in men and women who have a strong hairline with little risk for recession.
  • Lateral Brow Lift
    Also known as a temporal brow lift, this technique places the incision in the hairline just above the temples. It allows for the outer parts of the brow to be lifted and works well for sagging that is present in the outer portion of the brows. It also helps to smoothen crow’s feet as well as fine lines on the outside of the eye.
  • Endoscopic Forehead Lift
    This is one of the more modern techniques used in brow lift surgery. It places several tiny incisions in the hair-bearing area of the scalp and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which travels down to the area of the eyebrow, releasing its attachments. Through the camera of the endoscope, re-suspension of the brow tissues is performed using sutures to tell the brow to its newly lifted position.

What Should I Expect After Brow Lift Surgery?

Recovery following brow lift surgery varies, with more post-operative discomfort and swelling occurring with the open approach versus the endoscopic or temporal methods. Overall, there will be slight bruising and swelling in the upper face near the brows and possibly around the eyes. Cold compression helps to diminish the swelling, and you will be advised to sleep upright for the first several nights following surgery. It is important to avoid any movement or activities that place stress on the face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. The outcome can usually be seen immediately, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance that looks softer, more alert, and with a noticeable reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper face.
