Brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a procedure which addresses the horizontal creases of the forehead and reduced elasticity of skin associated with aging which can cause people to appear older, tired or even upset. The fallen brows can even block vision. Although there are multiple variations to the procedure depending upon goals and anatomy, a brow lift usually involves surgically raising the brows to a more natural position and then removing or redistributing excess forehead skin to create a smoother, softer, more pleasing appearance. Often combined with blepharoplasty, a brow lift can be performed under general or local anesthesia depending upon patient desire and the specific procedure. Recovery times vary with swelling and bruising usually subsiding in one to two weeks and full healing of incisions taking place over a few months. Your surgeon should go over the specific risks and benefits of the proposed surgery and design a customized surgery to best suit your needs.
