Darrell L. Henderson, MD performs brow lifts on patients in Lafayette, LA, to lift the skin around the forehead and eyes to diminish the signs of aging and restore a rested and rejuvenated expression.
If you have sagging eyebrows that create a tired or sad appearance, deep horizontal creases across your forehead, or frown lines or furrows between your eyebrows, a brow lift may be a perfect solution.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that reduces the lines and creases on your forehead so that you look as happy as you feel. A brow lift works by lifting the forehead area to eliminate deep creases and soften fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging and sun damage.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
- Repositions a low or sagging brow that hangs over the upper eyelid
- Raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position
- Makes you look happier, friendlier and more approachable
Brow Lift Procedure
The main difference among the various options for forehead lifting consists of the placement of the incision. In the endoscopic approach, several small incisions are placed just behind the hairline and a scope is used to assist in the surgery. This procedure results in less scarring and faster recovery.
Preparing for a Brow Lift
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions. If you smoke, you may be advised to quit at least during the weeks preceding and immediately following brow lift surgery. Patients may have to stop taking certain medications and should avoid alcohol in the days leading up to the procedure.
Brow Lift Recovery
Most patients go home within a few hours of a brow lift. However, more complex cases may require an overnight stay for monitoring. We recommend that you arrange for a friend or family member to stay with you for at least 24 hours after your surgery.
For the first ten to 14 days, you will have some bruising and swelling, so you will not see the full improvements of your brow lift. Bruising may occur in your eye, cheek, and forehead areas. Swelling is minimized by keeping your head elevated, including while you are sleeping. Other post-surgical symptoms include tingling, numbness, and a tightening sensation.
