Brow Lift Surgery
For many people, the effects of aging can become noticable in the brow area. Whether it is wrinkling, creases, loose skiing, overhanging eye brows, or frown lines, a brow lift can correct many of the effects people suffer from as they grow older.
A brow lift is a procedure in which excess skin around the brow area of the face is removed and the skin left behind is smoothed to give people a refreshed, more youthful look.

Good candidates for having a brow lift procedure are women and men who want to give themselves a younger look to reflect how they feel and the slow the appearance of aging.
For a brow lift, the plastic surgeon makes incisions hidden in the hairline and pulls the tissue in the brow back so that it is smoothed and the effects of aging are reduced or eliminated.
A brow lift is usually performed under local anesthesia, meaning that you will not be asleep for the brow lift procedure, but you will not feel any pain. Once the surgeon has completed the brow lift, they will close the incisions using sutures or stitches.
Many times, brow lifts are performed as outpatient procedures, meaning that you will be allowed to go home to recuperate from the surgery. However, if the brow lift is performed as an inpatient procedure, you may be required to stay in the hospital for a day of rest.
Many times brow lifts are performed along with other procosmetic surgery procedures like nose reshaping, facelift, eyelid surgery, or microdermabrasion.
Following a brow lift, bruising and swelling may persist in the area for a few weeks, and itching, numbness, and isolated hairloss may occur around the incisions. all of these effects should subside after a few weeks of recovery.
Although work and normal activities can be resumed after a weeks or so of rest, after a brow lift, strenuous activity and exposure to the sun should be limited, and your plastic surgeon should provide you with specific instructions.
