We offer numerous anti-aging procedures, including brow lifts at our Rancho Mirage, CA office. Please reach out to us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
What Is a Full Brow Lift?
As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and firmness, causing it to wrinkle and droop. This is especially noticeable on the forehead, where your skin and eyebrows may begin to sag as the year’s pass. A full brow lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that reverses these effects by raising the soft tissue and skin of the forehead and brows. This can produce a dramatic difference in your appearance, helping you look younger.
The Brow Lift Procedure
The most popular brow lift technique includes:
- Bicoronal Technique: This technique is performed by making a single incision from ear to ear across the scalp. The incision is made parallel to the hairline within the hair-bearing skin of the scalp. The skin of the forehead is then dissected to remove any excess, sagging skin. This smoothens and tightens the forehead to reduce any wrinkles. The incision is then closed on the scalp so the scar will be concealed within the hair.
Following your procedure, it’s essential to follow all of the post-operative instructions given to you by your doctor. Even though the pain will be minimal, you will receive pain medication and should take it as directed to relieve any discomfort. Make sure you do not attempt to do any activities earlier than instructed, as this can cause complications with healing. You should expect to be fully healed and able to return to work and other activities in two to three weeks. Follow-up care after a brow lift ensures proper healing, so it’s important to keep all your post-op appointments with your doctor.
Full Brow Lift Results
After a brow lift, you can expect noticeable results upon healing. The forehead and brow line will be lifted and smoothed, creating a more youthful appearance. You’ll have no more worries about a furrowed brow or noticeable forehead lines when your face is in a resting position. Scars will be minimal and are usually not noticeable as they are hidden within the hairline. Our doctor can provide more information about typical results and even show you before and after photos from previous patients.
Combine Your Brow Lift with Other Procedures
Many patients wish to enhance the appearance of their entire face, as wrinkles and other signs of aging affect more than just the forehead and brows. Our team can help you build an effective treatment plan to ensure we can accomplish the results you want. To achieve maximum results, a full brow lift is often combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as:
- Facelift: A facelift can help address the visible signs of aging, including the loss of muscle tone, sagging skin, double chin, and deep undereye creases.
- Neck Lift: A neck lift will help you achieve a slimmer neck and appear younger. The procedure removes excess fat and sagging skin around the neck.
- Eyelid Lift: An eyelid lift can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and remove excess skin around the eyelids, eyebrows, and forehead.
