Aging often results in deep frown lines and horizontal wrinkles, as well as a drooping forehead and brow. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Panossain offers a transformative solution in his brow lift procedure, which smooths these imperfections, rejuvenating your appearance. With Dr. Panossian’s expertise, patients achieve a refreshed, youthful look.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift surgery (or forehead lift) will resuspend the forehead in a higher, more youthful position. As you age, one of the problems that the human face encounters is dropping of the forehead and brow. Another advantage of a brow lift is that diminishes the horizontal lines and wrinkles that typically give a person an angry, tired, or sad look.
The procedure itself is relatively straightforward and can be combined with other facial procedures such as facelift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), neck lift, chin or cheek augmentation, or laser resurfacing.
Your Brow Lift Consultation
During the initial consultation, Dr. Andre Panossian will discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your facial structure to develop a tailored plan. He will explain the most suitable surgical technique for your specific needs, ensuring you understand every aspect of the procedure. In addition, Dr. Panossian will provide detailed instructions on pre- and post-operative care to ensure a smooth, successful outcome. This personalized approach guarantees that each patient receives the utmost care and attention for their brow lift journey.
Brow Lift Cost
The cost of a brow lift varies, influenced by the surgery’s complexity, and the technique used. Dr. Panossian provides a transparent cost breakdown during consultations, emphasizing the value of investing in expert care for optimal results and safety. It’s important to view this procedure as an investment in your long-term appearance and self-confidence.
Are You Ready For A Consultation?
If you are considering this procedure, booking a consultation with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Panossian is a great way to learn about the procedure and determine if it’s right for you.
How is the brow lift recovery?
Following surgery, Dr. Panossian may use a light head wrap. Sometimes a small thin drain tube is used to remove fluid that might accumulate. Dr. Panossian usually removes it within 24 hours in the office. At this point, patients can shower with shampoo and water. Care is taken not to rub on the forehead or the areas of the incisions within the scalp.
Much of the general activity restrictions and return to work instructions are similar to having had a facelift, including avoidance of strenuous activities, exercise, and heavy lifting. The swelling usually subsides in 10-14 days. Most patients return to work 7-10 days following surgery. Dr. Panossian will prescribe pain medications ahead of time, and sometimes antibiotics. You may use makeup to conceal any bruising if it persists. The incisions themselves may sometimes be numb or sensitive for several weeks.
Risks and Complications
What are the risks and complications of a brow lift?
In men, the eyebrow typically sits at the level of the lowest part of the forehead bone above the eyes. In women, the eyebrow tends to curve upwards slightly above this bone. One of the complications of a brow lift is related to overcorrection, giving an unusual surprised appearance to a woman or a feminizing appearance to a man. An experienced plastic surgeon recognizes this possibility and will pay special attention to positioning the brow at the time of surgery.
Additional risks include the possibility of blood accumulating underneath the skin (hematoma), infection, widened scar, nerve injury to muscles that move the eyebrows, a wrinkled forehead, and mild hair loss along the incisions.
All of these complications are infrequent and can be further minimized by paying close attention to Dr. Panossian’s pre- and postoperative instructions.
