If you are considering cosmetic surgery, a face lift is probably at the top of the list of what you would like to have done. However, an often-overlooked procedure that can make a dramatic difference is a brow lift. Read on for some more information about this procedure and how it can benefit you.
What is a brow lift?
Over time, the aging process, the sun, and lifestyle choices can make skin look wrinkled and saggy – including, of course, the area above the eyes. Lines in the brow can make you look older than you are, tired, and worried.
A brow lift can help. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened. This erases wrinkles and helps to remove any excess tissue that may be hovering over the eyes. This procedure can be combined with other procedures for full effect. Eyelid surgery, which removes tissue around the eyes to make the patient look younger and more alert, and face lifts, which targets the lower face, are two procedures that are commonly done along with a brow lift.
What can I expect after a brow lift?
After your brow lift, there will be some bruising and swelling, but this will reduce within 10 days after the procedure. The recovery time for most patients is quick – most can return to work in about a week. Once the bruising and swelling goes down, you will start to see results. There will be little, if any scarring, as incisions can be made discretely within the hair line.
A brow lift procedure has results that last longer than other procedures, such as Botox injections. You’ll have younger looking skin on the brow, free of wrinkles and worry lines, for years (although your brow will continue to show the normal effects of age).
If you are tired of wrinkles and saggy skin, you may be planning on a plastic surgery procedure. Don’t forget the brow in your plans!
