A brow lift treatment can help reduce signs of aging caused by a sagging browline. A brow lift is designed to remodel the muscles and tissues along the brow to create a more youthful appearance. Read on to learn more about brow lifts and the noticeable difference this procedure can make.
A brow lift, also called an eyebrow lift, is an outpatient surgical procedure that’s designed to reduce the appearance of droopiness around the eyebrows. The results of the procedure help turn back signs of aging by reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the forehead, eyes, and nose.
Total recovery time from a brow lift runs between seven to 10 days. As with any surgical procedure, the physician you choose will determine the quality of results you see. Dr. Scott Greenberg is a board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience in the field.
You experience moderate to severe forehead sagging
Your brow makes you look like you’re frowning or deep in thought when you’re not
You have sagging upper eyelids
Dr. Scott Greenberg of Winter Park Plastic Surgery will explain the effects of a brow lift in detail to ensure this is the right procedure for you. The doctor will also go over other cosmetic options that produce similar results, including eyelid surgery, skin resurfacing, and facelifting.
What’s Involved with a Brow Lift?
The procedure uses the “minimal incision” technique, which places several small incisions along the scalp line and upper eyelids. From there, Dr. Greenberg remodels the muscle and skin tissue while removing any excess tissue, then sets the browline in a more pleasing position.
A brow lift or eyebrow lift procedure takes place in-office and can be performed at the same time as other facial rejuvenation treatments.
