Brow Lift surgery addresses diminished muscle tone in the forehead, which causes heavy, drooping eyebrows and tired, aging eyes. A Brow Lift rejuvenates the upper face by brightening the eye area and eliminating deep lines and furrows along the brow.
During Eyebrow Lift surgery, an incision is made at or slightly behind the hairline, where it will be completely hidden by the surrounding hair. The surgeon carefully weakens the muscles that caused the furrows, and gently lifts and stretches the skin, carefully raising the eyebrows for a brighter, more alert but natural appearance.
Eyebrow Lift surgery may take up to two hours depending on the extent of the Brow Lift procedure or if the Brow Lift is being combined with other facial rejuvenation treatment or procedure.
Following Brow Lift surgery, the forehead area may be swollen and slightly bruised. Pain medication and rest is recommended for five to seven days.
