Browlift Before & After Photos
Browlift surgery, also called a forehead lift, can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you look less angry, sad or tired. Using either traditional or minimally invasive (endoscopic) methods, browlifts involve the removal or alteration of the muscles above the eyes to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. The procedure is often combined with other operations such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to improve the look of the eyes and other areas of the face.
While browlifts are typically performed on patients aged 40 to 60 to counteract the effects of aging, anyone with lined or inelastic skin on the forehead — whether it's caused by muscle activity or inherited conditions — is eligible.
After the hair is tied as with the traditional procedure, the surgeon makes three to five short incisions (less than an inch long) behind the hairline. The endoscope is placed in one so the surgeon can see beneath the skin without having to make a large incision, while he or she lifts the skin and adjusts muscles through the other incisions. If the eyebrows are lifted they will be stitched or screwed (temporarily) into place. The site is washed and the rubber bands are removed. Some surgeons will protect the stitches with gauze or bandages.
With both procedures, you will be on your feet and able to wash your hair in a day or two, and many patients return to regular activity within 7 to 10 days or fewer. Swelling and bruising should fade by the third week.
