Brow Lift

Some people feel their "eyebrows are low" which gives their eyes a heavy appearance. In these cases, eyelid surgery alone is not enough to fully restore the appearance of the their eye and brow areas. The muscles and skin that cause the droopy appearance can be tightened with a browlift.

Process: Incisions are made up near the hairline, the forehead skin is carefully lifted and repositioned with the brows in a more anatomically correct position. The excess skin is then removed and the skin is sutured back into place.

Recovery: It will take about a week before you will feel like returning to work and the visible signs of surgery should begin to fade within a couple of weeks. You may experience some numbness on the top of the scalp near your incisions but that will lessen over several months.

Results: The result will be a firmer, more youthful appearance for the brow area, forehead and eyes. In many cases the fine creased between the eyebrows and across the forehead are lessened or eliminated following browlift surgery.
