A brow lift is a procedure that raises sagging brows, and improves the wrinkles and creases across the forehead and between the eyebrows, resulting in a rested, youthful and alert appearance.
Who is a candidate for a brow lift?
Patients who have a sagging brow that hangs over the upper eyelid (usually laterally) or who may have lines between the brows are candidates for a brow lift. These changes associated with aging may give the appearance and impression that you are tired, sad or angry.
How is a brow lift performed?
There are several techniques used to perform a brow lift. Most commonly, Dr. Farris will utilize an endoscopic technique where several tiny incisions are placed within the scalp. This method results in minimal scarring and a decreased recovery time. The operation is about 1-2 hours long and is performed under general anesthesia.
What to expect after surgery?
Dr. Farris and his staff will provide specific instructions regarding your surgery. After your brow lift surgery, you will be able to go home the same day.
Postoperative pain is minimal. You may experience some tightness or change in sensation for the first few days. Swelling and bruising will subside by the second week. Apply cold compresses around the eyes for the first few days and keep your head elevated above the level of your chest for the first week. You may return to work and light activity after 1 week. Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 3 weeks.
