What to Know Before Having Brow Lift SurgeryPosted on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD
Before deciding to undergo brow lift surgery, you should become informed about the benefits, recovery period and other aspects of this procedure. A brow lift can transform the upper third of your face, but is it the right cosmetic procedure for you? In this post, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Stevens discusses the things you should know before having brow lift surgery.
Brow Lift Surgery Can Remove Forehead and Frown Lines
Do people ever ask if you are tired or upset, even though you feel fine? A sagging brow or deep forehead wrinkles can give you a fatigued appearance. This can make you less approachable and cause you to lose confidence.
A brow lift can reduce forehead lines and wrinkles between the eyes, while also raising the eyebrows to a more relaxed position. After getting a brow lift procedure, you may appear to be in a better mood, which makes the people around you feel calmer and friendlier.
Choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon
Before moving forward with a brow lift, it is important that you locate a surgeon that has experience with and training in this specific procedure. Look for a doctor with certification in facial plastic surgery from the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, such as Dr. Stevens.
Also discuss your aesthetic goals with each surgeon you are considering, and view before-and-after photos of their brow lift patients. Make sure you feel comfortable with your surgeon before deciding to undergo brow lift surgery.
Plan Your Recovery
A brow lift can typically be completed in around an hour. Most patients can return to work or daily activities within two weeks.
The incisions are small and hidden behind the hairline in an endoscopic brow lift, so you won’t have to worry about covering up any scars. If you have other questions, ask your surgeon during your initial consultation.
