Brow Lift Model

Do you wonder what to do when you see yourself in the mirror looking tired, even after a good night’s sleep? Do your eyes look hooded or heavy, or eyebrows seem lower than a few years ago? Aging around the brow and eyes is one of the first things people notice. Plastic Surgery Specialists can answer the many questions you might have about the Brow lift procedure, or a combination of Brow lift with a Blepharoplasty for droopy or sagging skin around the eyes. The combination of procedures can truly refresh your look with very limited downtime.

What is a Brow Lift?

A Brow Lift (also known as a Forehead Lift or Browplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure that raises the eyebrows to a higher and more aesthetic position. It also improves lateral hoods, the droopy flaps of skin that often hang over the outside corner of the eyes. Horizontal forehead wrinkles and scowl lines between the eyebrows can also be softened with a Brow Lift. Marin County residents often choose a Brow Lift because it is minimally invasive and results in a younger appearance for years to come. People who live throughout Marin County, including Greenbrae, Larkspur, Corte Madera, Mill Valley, Santa Rosa, San Rafael and Novato, can get an outpatient forehead lift in our beautiful fully-accredited surgery center equipped with state-of-the-art technology where our board-certified plastic surgeons will make sure you get the look you desire.

Best Candidates

Most patients opting for a Brow Lift are between 40 and 50 years old and have brow lines and eyelids that have begun to sag noticeably. They may also have wrinkles or creases along the forehead, causing them to look angry or sad even when they are not. Hereditary conditions can sometimes render people in their 20s and 30s good candidates for Browplasty as well. If you are considering this procedure, you should have a thorough understanding of what it can and cannot accomplish. After a consultation with the team at Plastic Surgery Specialists, some may decide that a Brow Lift is best performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as a Facelift or Eyelid Surgery.

The Procedure

During a Forehead Lift, tiny incisions are made in the hairline around the forehead. From these incisions, the skin and underlying muscle tissue can be loosened and separated from the forehead bone beneath it. The brow can then be lifted to a higher position. During the Brow Lift, the muscles that cause frown lines can actually be severed to remove the frown lines and keep them from coming back.

Post-Brow Lift Procedure

Browplasty may require either local or general anesthesia. Pain medication may be needed afterward along with cold compresses. Bruising and swelling usually abate quickly. Any external stitches can be removed in about a week. Internal sutures incurred during a Browplasty will dissolve in about nine months, giving the muscles and connective tissue time to heal. Results should be apparent very soon after the procedure.
