Making Your Eyes Look More Youthful

Brow lift surgery, also known as forehead lift or brow lift, is an operation that removes excess skin and fat from the forehead. The procedure can be performed on people of any age, but it is most common among those in their forties and fifties. It’s often done to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes and mouth caused by aging.

The Procedure

A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to raise eyebrows and improve the appearance of the forehead. It can also help relieve tension headaches and eye fatigue. During a brow lift, the surgeon makes small incisions in the hairline and lifts the skin of the forehead to expose the underlying muscles and tissues. The muscles are then tightened or shortened, and the skin is re-draped over them.

The brow lift surgery is performed by making an incision above the eyebrows. The surgeon then lifts the skin and muscles of the forehead to create a new, higher position for the eyebrows. Any excess skin is removed, and the incision is closed with sutures. When done properly, the result is a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

The operative time for this procedure usually takes about two to four hours. Often a patient may have brow lift surgery in combination with another procedure. Advanced laser therapy and neurotoxins injections can help diminish frown lines between eyebrows but cannot lift drooping eyebrows. Browlift surgery is the only way to achieve this.

Benefits Of Browlifts

Brow lifts can reduce or eliminate sagging eyebrows and improve the appearance of the forehead. It cannot stop the aging process, but it can correct its effects. The main advantage of having a brow lift surgery is that it can safely correct drooping eyebrows and wrinkles in the forehead.

The brow lift surgery is usually performed to treat conditions such as eyebrow ptosis (droopiness), forehead wrinkles and furrowed lines in between the eyebrows, and frown lines around the mouth area. This procedure can also lift the eyebrows to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. The forehead may also be reduced if necessary, creating a younger look for patients who are bothered by excessive wrinkles or sagging skin on their foreheads.

People who have undergone a browlift report feeling more confident because they look younger than they are. They also say that they feel less self-conscious about wearing their hair up or down and make-up choices because there are no lines for people to see.

Recovery From A Brow Lift

The procedure usually takes less than four hours; however, recovery time varies from patient to patient. Patients are required to wear bandages on their heads for a few days after the surgery. The bandages must be kept on until otherwise instructed by the surgeon. The risks of undergoing a brow lift vary from patient to patient and depend on each person’s individual plan before surgery, age, overall health, and medical history.
