The forehead is often the first and most obvious area of the face to develop wrinkles. With a brow lift, you can reverse these common signs of aging to achieve a more youthful appearance. At Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness, we offer this treatment to men and women living in Winston-Salem, Fayetteville and Greensboro, NC.
What is Involved in a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a facial surgery technique that is used to eliminate loose skin and wrinkles in the forehead. These effects can create a tired or angry appearance as the brow droops, motivating many patients to seek a solution.
The forehead is often one of the first areas of the face to develop signs of aging, making brow lifts a popular procedure for many patients. The brow lift is often combined with procedures like a facelift (LINK) to enhance the facial rejuvenation benefits of treatment. Dr. Contogiannis is proud to help patients achieve their goals with the brow lift procedure.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
If you would like to achieve a more youthful appearance by eliminating wrinkles and sagging skin in the forehead, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the brow lift procedure to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How Does a Brow Lift Work?
The brow lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia. This means that you will be asleep and entirely comfortable for the procedure. During the brow lift treatment, incisions will be made along the hairline, where any scarring should remain well-hidden. Through these incisions, Dr. Contogiannis will remove any excess skin. Then, the remaining skin will be lifted and tightened to produce the desired results.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From a Brow Lift?
After the brow lift procedure, you can expect bruising and swelling that can last for a month or longer. We will apply bandages and in some cases, a drainage tube, to aid in the recovery process. You will need to take at least a week off of work and other activities, spending as much time at home resting as you can. Most patients are able to return to their usual activities within about two weeks of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Brow Lift?
The results from your brow lift will be visible as soon as any post-operative swelling and bruising fade. The results from a brow lift generally last for many years. You will still continue to develop gradual changes in the forehead due to the natural aging process, but the brow lift procedure can significantly rejuvenate your appearance in the meantime.
