Brow Lift/ Forehead Lift
One of the earliest signs of aging is the drooping of the eyebrows. This causes the eyes to appear smaller or deeper set and accentuates crowsfeet (the wrinkles often found at the outer corners of the eyes). In addition, furrows may appear horizontally and vertically as the brow descends. These conditions can be dramatically improved with a forehead lift. We often will recommend this in conjunction with or in place of a facelift to help in facial rejuvenation. In appropriate patient candidates, this procedure can be performed using the endoscopic approach.
BEFORE & AFTER
The incisions are made in such a way so that they are hidden. The skin is separated and tightened. Some of the smaller muscles in the forehead which cause the deep furrowing may be weakened to reduce the severity of the frown lines. The procedure is frequently combined with a blepharoplasty in opening up and rejuvenating the eyes.
For the first week after outpatient surgery you may engage in relaxed activities, and then begin to resume normal activities the following week. Final healing may take several weeks.
