Enhancing your appearance with a brow lift:
If you have expression lines or other signs of aging in the forehead and brow region that you find bothersome, a brow lift (also called a forehead lift) may be right for you. A brow lift:
- Minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
- Improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines
- Repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
- Raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position
A brow lift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved tone in facial skin and underlying muscle.
Brow lift surgery can be performed through multiple limited incisions hidden within the hairline or through a single incision. Results of a brow lift may be enhanced through a chemical peel that can further improve skin tone and surface appearance. When there is significant excess skin in the forehead, Dr. Otis Allen may recommend an alternate technique using a wide incision across the top of the scalp.
Swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. Final results may appear within 1-2 months. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for up to 1 year.
