About brow lift surgery

Plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom understands that brows sag as you age, and deep wrinkles can be created on the forehead from years of facial expressions, which is why he offers brow lift surgery at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, MA. A brow lift is designed to restore the appearance of the eyebrows and forehead. However, the degree of achievement depends on the severity of the initial deformity and the elasticity of your skin tissue. The overall goal is to reduce the wrinkles which develop across the forehead, between the eyes, and the bridge of the nose. The procedure also raises sagging brows which cover the upper eyelids to create a more alert and youthful appearance.

The surgeon can also recommend procedures that you can combine with a brow lift, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, or neuromodulator injections(Botox or Dysport)

What happens during a brow lift?

Most brow lift surgeries are performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center. Small incisions are made in inconspicuous areas, such as behind the hairline or in the eyebrows, for brow surgery. A brow lift may be performed using the open brow lift, the limited incision brow lift, or the endoscopic brow lift, which will be based on the patient’s objectives and their individual appearance. The excess skin is removed after the incisions have been made, and the muscles and soft tissue are positioned in order to smooth and straighten lines and wrinkles.

Brow lift recovery and results

A patient undergoing brow lift surgery may be taken home after 2 hours once the doctor has given the okay. An adult who is competent to care for the patient may then take him at home. The majority of patients regain mobility and work capability after a brow lift in 1 week, although they may be a bit bruised and painful for the first few days. Also in the days following surgery, patients might experience numbness, soreness, discomfort, and tingling. The doctor will discuss with each patient what they must do to expedite their recovery and advise on the best course of action. The sutures will be removed from each patient’s wounds 1 week later and the healing process can be examined. The final results of a brow lift usually emerge after four to six months.
