A brow lift, also known as forehead rejuvenation or a forehead lift, is a type of cosmetic procedure that involves raising the eyebrows. The procedure helps to enhance the forehead appearance, the brow and eye area by lifting soft tissue and skin in the area. You might consider this treatment if you currently have a low, sagging brow or asymmetry in the brow area. The procedure can help to increase your self-confidence and can be performed either alone or in conjunction with other facial procedures like a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Why It is Performed
The aging process leads to certain skin changes, including a loss of elasticity. This can cause your brows to move down. As soft tissues and skin begin losing elasticity, the distance between your eyelashes and eyebrows will shorten. A lowered brow can make you appear angry, tired, or sad. The brow lift procedure can raise your eyebrows and lead to a more pleasant, refreshed appearance.
Your first step in enhancing your appearance is a consultation to discuss a potential brow lift. At this time, we will go over your medical history. You will need to inform us about any medications that you are taking, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies. Inform us of any allergies that you may have to certain medications.
To explore your treatment options, we can take a look at different areas of your face with eyes open and closed. We may also take photographs for a basis of comparison after your treatment. Finally, we can discuss your goals and expectations. We will ensure that you understand each and every step of the procedure so that there are no surprises along the way.
There are some variations on the details of the procedure, but it is generally performed in a certain way. The surgeon gains access to the underlying tissues and muscles and adjusts them as needed.
After your brow lift comes your recovery period. It’s important to follow all instructions during this time for optimal healing and the best results. After a full recovery, you can enjoy your results.
