in a Boston aesthetic surgery center that places the utmost importance on quality, safety, and service. In addition to raising droopy, downturned, or sagging eyebrows to a more youthful and flattering position, a brow lift also helps smooth forehead lines and frown lines in aging patients. A brow lift is also sometimes referred to as forehead lift surgery.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that lifts the position of the eyebrows on the forehead. The procedure is performed through small incisions within the scalp.
A brow lift will open your eyes wider for a more youthful appearance. It can be designed to lift the outer part of the brow more than the inner part to achieve a more feminine look. This is known as a temporal brow lift, or temple brow lift. Incisions are placed in an inconspicuous location, often hidden along the hairline, then the skin is pulled upward to raise the position of the eyebrows to a desirable position.
As a result, the forehead skin takes on a smoother, more youthful appearance as it softens unwanted wrinkles and creases. A brow lift can be performed using sedation and local anesthesia or with patients under general anesthesia. The results of a brow lift are instantly visible, however, it takes a few weeks to fully heal.
Benefits of brow lift
More welcoming & less stern facial expression
A more feminine eyebrow shape for those desiring it
Soften forehead wrinkles
Anyone in good overall health who is bothered by a low position of her or his eyebrows may be a candidate for a brow lift.
A brow lift will make your facial expression appear less angry or stern. A brow lift can be combined with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty when excess upper eyelid skin is also present.
A brow lift is often an excellent complement to facelift surgery. Together, the combination of procedures produces full facial rejuvenation in a single procedure. This is particularly beneficial for mature patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s that have loose skin and wrinkles on the lower part of the face in addition to low, heavy eyebrows and forehead lines.
A combined facelift with brow lift surgery is unparalleled in terms of anti-aging face surgeries that are available today. Due to the various treatment options that are available, we invite you to meet with Dr. Michael Tantillo for a personalized consultation. A consultation provides an opportunity to learn about your individual concerns and create a surgical plan that is tailored to your needs. Whether you need a brow lift on its own or a combined procedure, the results are sure to amaze you.
When performed by itself or in combination with a blepharoplasty, a brow lift is generally a day surgical procedure. When performed as part of a full facelift, patients typically spend a night in the surgery center.
Patients should plan for ten to fourteen days out of the public eye and avoid strenuous activity for four weeks. While adequate rest is critical to recovering from surgery, patients are encouraged to be up and about taking short walks starting the evening of the procedure.
