Surgical & Non-Surgical Brow Lift, Eyebrow Lift & Forehead Lift Procedure
Aging is inevitable; so is its effect. The brow and forehead are usually the first areas that show the signs of aging. The skin loses its elasticity due to a number of factors. This can be because of the wind, sun, and pull of gravity– all of which can affect the face, and this leads to wrinkling across the forehead or frown lines. Not just that, some begin to notice an increasing heaviness in their eyebrows as well. Even those who are just in their early thirties could have faces that look years older than their real age. If you’re one of those who often face the problem of being mistaken as angry, tired, or sad because of your appearance, the best thing for you to do is consider a forehead lift.
The recent innovations in technology would give you the assurance that you’ll be experiencing promising results once you undergo this procedure.
Understanding the Surgical Procedure
The main difference between the different options for forehead lifting is the placement of incision made. Wherein, with the newest approach known as the “endoscopic surgery,” several small incisions are placed behind the hairline, and a scope is utilized to assist during the procedure. If done properly, there are lesser side effects to be experienced– this includes lesser risk of numbness and faster recovery time.
Another technique that can be used is the one where longer incisions are made. This is done to lift the eyebrow and the location is determined by the specialist after thorough assessment and discussion about the various options to use.
Aside from the usual benefits of raising the brow and smoothing the forehead, this can also lower the hairline, while improving the facial balance and harmony as well. This procedure usually takes between 1-2 hours, and it’s usually done under twilight anesthesia or IV sedation.
Who Are the Candidates for This Procedure?
Those who belong in these categories are ideal candidates for brow lift surgery:
– Those who are physically healthy.
– Those who don’t smoke.
– Those who have realistic goals and positive outlook in life.
As we age, wrinkle lines may appear on the forehead, and frown lines between the brows could make a person look “too serious” or angry even when their not. Then, skin relaxation could also cause the brows to drop, or it could also hood the upper eyelids and make the person look tired. For those who find this very bothersome, then a brow lift procedure would really be ideal.
What to Expect After Surgery
After a forehead lift surgery, bruising and swelling within the 10-day period is completely normal. For some patients, they also experience the swelling, not only on their forehead, but even on the eye and cheek area as well. That said, it’s highly advisable to keep the head well-elevated in order to reduce the swelling. While the incisions heal, you would probably experience some numbness and itchiness. Don’t worry; these side effects would diminish eventually.
After 10 days, the sutures would also be removed. In situations where bandages have been used, these would be removed 1-3 days after the procedure. It’s very important to follow the advice of the medical practitioner closely to ensure that you wouldn’t be experiencing any issues during the recovery process. For most patients, the recovery time does not exceed two weeks, but it’s still recommended to stay away from doing strenuous activities during the recovery period. As for the bruising that might happen, this can easily be concealed with the help of makeup.
Sometimes, a brow lift is combined with eyelid tucks (Blepharoplasty), or facelift for a more harmonious rejuvenation.
Facial plastic surgery makes it possible to fix any facial flaw, as well as signs of premature aging. This can help a person regain their self confidence again, because their looks would be changed for the better, making them feel good about themselves.
