Can I have other procedures performed while I have my Brow Lift?
Yes. As with other minor facial rejuvenation procedures, a brow lift is commonly performed in combination with other procedures such as a facelift, skin resurfacing, or an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty).
Can men have a Brow Lift? Is the surgical process different for a man than a woman?
Yes, a brow lift is a common surgical procedure for men, too. However, the facial anatomy of men and women are different, so the position of the brows differs in each gender. Drs. Lin and Cohen-Kashi at North Shore Center for Plastic Surgery in Long Island, NY can discuss these details with you during your consultation.
Who is an ideal candidate for a Brow Lift?
Ideal candidates for a brow or forehead lift include:
- Women or men who are seeking a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing appearance in their forehead region
- People who have a tired or disgruntled look due to aging eyes
- People whose brows are sagging or drooping
- People who have heavy brows creating hooding at the outer corners of the eye
Is a Brow Lift a long procedure?
No, a Brow Lift or forehead lift is a relatively quick procedure and lasts about 1 hour. General anesthesia is used and patients can leave to go home on the same day.
What can I expect during my Brow Lift recovery?
Mild discomfort is common but is controlled with pain medication. It’s also common to experience bruising and swelling around the region, but this will diminish within one to two weeks after your surgery. Swelling will resolve completely and final results will be visible within four to six weeks.
