Brow Lift Surgery
Also referred to as forehead lift, brow lift is designed to correct sagging brows and reduce the appearance of horizontal lines and wrinkles across the forehead. Lateral browlift can reverse the age-related descent of the eyebrow to restore a beautiful arch in women or eliminate crowding of the upper eyelid. It is often useful in combination with upper eyelid surgery. Full forehead lifts will treat eyebrows that hang over the eyelids and nasal root, and reduce horizontal wrinkle lines and vertical furrows between the eyebrows. These procedures can dramatically rejuvenate a person's appearance and make him or her look years younger. At our New York practice, brow lift surgery is popular among patients who wish to reverse the effects of the aging process and regain some of their youthful vitality.
As with other facial plastic surgery procedures, brow and forehead lifts are performed under general anesthesia. Depending on your needs and goals, a limited incision may be made behind the hairline of the temple for a lateral browlift, or small incisions may be placed behind the frontal hairline to provide access for an endoscope to reduce frowning muscles. Alternatively, small muscles responsible for frowning can be removed through an upper eyelid incision during blepahroplasty. In select cases of pronounced aging, a larger incision may be used behind or at the hairline across the scalp to treat the entire forehead..
Once the incisions have been made, the muscle and skin will be repositioned and excess skin will be removed, resulting in a more youthful appearance. This is especially helpful to achieve facial harmony with a facelift.
Once the surgery is complete, the incision will be closed with sutures. Any resulting scarring should be inconspicuous, thanks to the precise placement of the incisions in the skin's natural folds and behind the hairline. Dressings will be placed after surgery to promote healing and help prevent bruising and swelling. Medications can be prescribed to help control post-surgical pain and discomfort.
