Located in Glen Mills, Media and Chester, Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offers brow lift surgery to the residents of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas desiring.
For many, the eyebrows are key to creating genuine forms of expression. But, with time and age, many discover that their eyebrows begin to droop as wrinkles form across the forehead. This tends to cause a negative, frowning appearance that may make you feel less attractive than you would like. If this sounds familiar to you, then a brow lift could help.
What is a Brow Lift?
Drooping eyebrows make you look tired and even unhappy, creating a facade that could impact your personal or professional interactions. A brow lift improves this appearance by gently elevating the eyebrows to give you a more youthful and alert appearance. A brow lift can also improve drooping upper eyelid skin, as well as wrinkles between the eyebrows and upper forehead.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Many individuals are, in fact, excellent candidates for a brow lift. If you have sagging eyebrows that cause you to look unhappy, worry lines across the forehead, furrows between the eyebrows, or excess skin over the eyes, you could be an excellent candidate for a brow lift. Of course, the best way to determine your candidacy for this procedure is to schedule a consultation. This will allow Dr. Ginsburg to more thoroughly assess your concerns and goals, creating a treatment plan that will work best for you.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
There are a number of techniques that may be used depending on your specific needs and physical features. These techniques range from open brow lift to limited incision brow lift.
During an open brow lift, Dr. Ginsburg makes an incision across the forehead. This incision could be along the hairline or in a forehead crease, to make any scarring as discreet as possible. After making the incision, Dr. Ginsburg will lift the forehead skin, remove any excess tissue or skin, and raise the eyebrows. If necessary, he may also relax or tighten forehead muscles to create the best results.
A limited incision brow lift may be performed for clients who need only the outer part of the eyelids lifted. For this procedure, Dr. Ginsburg will place incisions in the hairline.
Depending on your treatment plan, Dr. Ginsburg will discuss the specifics of your procedure with you during your consultation, so you fully understand what to expect.
Can a Brow Lift Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, a brow lift is often combined with upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and facelift to create a holistic and comprehensive improvement to the face. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, and when done together, can shorten overall healing time. You can speak with Dr. Ginsburg regarding your desire for combined procedures to determine the best way to achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Should I Expect from Brow Lift Recovery?
As with any surgery, the amount of recovery time will vary depending on the individual, as well as the types of procedures involved. However, general recovery time for a brow lift is one to two weeks.
The first night after your procedure, you can expect some bruising, numbness and/or swelling, with swelling reaching its peak 48-72 hours after your surgery. These side effects will resolve on their own within two to three weeks, so you can begin to enjoy your new look.
Sensation to the scalp will also begin to return in the weeks following your procedure. However, it is important to be mindful when combing, using a hairdryer, or hot water on the scalp, as the numbness may make it more difficult to feel potential scalding or heat damage.
In most cases, our patients are able to resume full normal activity roughly one month after their surgery. However, this estimation is dependent upon the individual’s normal level of activity and work conditions. Rest assured, the specifics of your recovery process will be discussed during your consultation. Should you have any questions after your procedure, do not hesitate to contact us.
