Brow lift procedures are used to reposition the brow, which is often sagging with aging, resulting in an overall tired look. With correction, the appearance of forehead wrinkles can be reduced. It can also correct eyebrow position and restore a youthful, rested appearance.
The surgical procedure takes 1 – 2 hours and is performed under heavy sedation or general anesthetic, and patients can be released home later in the day. The location of the scar varies based on the needs of the patient, but are concealed in or along the hairline. Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects. Patients typically require 1 – 2 weeks of limited activity before they can return to work, often requiring makeup application to cover bruising. Swelling will resolve after approximately 2 months. Postoperative recovery can vary among individuals.
Additional surgical risks will be discussed in consultation. If surgery is not for you consider non-invasive anti-aging procedures.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
