Are You a Good Candidate?
Brow lift may achieve your goals if you want to correct:
Naturally low eyebrows
Eyebrows that have sagged over time
Creases on the bridge of your nose
Dr. Arledge recognizes that every patient is unique. Consequently, she will evaluate your skin and brow area carefully, discuss your concerns and choose the best method for achieving the results you want:
Direct Brow Lift — Dr. Arledge uses this method to remove a small ellipse of skin above each eyebrow. This technique is particularly suited to men who have receding hairlines.
Anterior Direct Brow Lift — If you have a high forehead, Dr. Arledge may choose this technique. It avoids increasing the length of your forehead while achieving natural-looking results. Dr. Arledge makes an incision across the front of your hairline, then lifts your brow and removes excess forehead skin.
Recovery times vary, but most patients recuperate for 4 to 10 days. Cold compresses should be applied for the first 48 hours to minimize swelling. To protect the area, she advises avoiding clothes that you must pull on over your head. Dr. Arledge uses absorbable sutures, and you will wear a compression dressing to promote healing. You will also have one small drain that is removed after just a few days.
Dr. Arledge recommends waiting 1 week before returning to work, 2 weeks before resuming light exercise, and 3 weeks before returning to more rigorous activities.
Results and Benefits
Brow lift produces a smoother forehead and natural, youthfully arched eyebrows. Many patients describe feeling like their eye area is “opened up” after brow lift surgery, allowing them to look more youthful and relaxed — and feel more upbeat as well.
