The area of the forehead and brow often descend before the rest of the face. This can make a person appear old and tired.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that can take years off a person’s face by resorting a smooth and fresh look to the forehead. Also known as a forehead lift, it rejuvenates the upper portion of the face by reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and eliminating sagging skin (ptosis) above the eyes. By adjusting the skin and tissue of the forehead, drooping eyebrows are elevated and deep wrinkles and lines are corrected.
Dr. Timothy Alexander regularly performs brow lift surgery for patients all over South Florida at his practice.
Ideal candidates for facelift surgery are in good overall health and have a positive outlook about the outcome of their procedure. In most cases, patients should undergo a brow lift to correct one or more of the following conditions:
Wrinkles on the forehead
Furrows beneath the eyebrows
A tired or angry appearance
Generally, a brow lift is performed under general anesthesia. Once the low-position of the eyebrows and eyelids is corrected through incisions at the temples and the natural crease of the eyelids, Dr. Alexander will perform a Coronal Brow Lift.
An incision is made in the hairline that spans from ear to ear. Excess skin is removed from the scalp and the forehead is lifted to a more youthful position.
After the brow lift is performed, Dr. Alexander will loosely wrap your forehead with bandages to help decrease swelling and bruising. Dr. Alexander will prescribe medication to alleviate any pain or discomfort that exists during the next couple of days. Results usually last five to ten years with minimal recovery time associated with this procedure. Even though a coronal lift typically has a longer recovery period, most patients feel they can return to work after about a week to ten days. It is important to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise during the few weeks to give incisions time to close and you time to heal properly.
