For many people, the signs of aging begin at the brow - causing wrinkle lines, folds and creases between the eyebrows and on the forehead. The loosening of skin also takes a toll on your appearance, causing the eyebrows to drop. These common effects of aging can make you appear older and constantly tired. Fortunately, facial plastic surgery exists to help correct these imperfections.
A brow lift, or forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that helps patients look more alert by reversing these signs of aging, resulting in a younger-looking appearance.
Eyebrow lifts have multiple benefits, including the following:
A brow lift is an outpatient procedure done with general anesthesia or a combination of I.V. sedation and local anesthesia. Most patients go home the night of the surgery. Your doctor may prescribe you with medication to alleviate pain, and your head may be wrapped to minimize bruising and swelling during your eyebrow lift recovery.
To determine whether or not a brow lift is the right procedure for you, schedule a consultation with one of MultiCare Plastic & Reconstructive Surgerys board-certified surgeons. During your visit, your doctor will speak with you about the goals you have for your appearance, measure your face, take photographs, discuss your options and determine the best decision for your treatment.
In addition to deciding on your treatment plan, your doctor will also ask you about your medical history. Bring a list of medications, supplements and vitamins you take, and have a list prepared of the questions or concerns you may have. Being open with our specialists is key to a safe and successful brow lift procedure.
*A $75 consultation fee will be charged and applied towards the total cost of surgery if the procedure is elected.
