Brow and Forehead Lifts
Time, sun exposure, gravity and facial habits like squinting can leave their marks on our faces, especially on a person’s forehead. Genetics also play a role in how our faces age. When you have deep lines or sagging, heavy eyebrows, this can make you look older, tired and even angry. Some patients also have difficulty with their vision if their eyebrows have sagged enough to obstruct sight.
Luckily, today there are surgical and nonsurgical options to provide a lift to these sagging areas and create a more alert but still natural appearance. Our brow and forehead lift doctors in Reston, VA, have years of experience and training to perform these procedures.
What Brow and Foreheads Lifts Can Correct
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Sagging eyebrows
- Vertical frown lines
Sometimes brow and forehead lifts are combined with eyelid surgery to raise drooping eyelids at the same time for a more comprehensive appearance update and improved visual field.
How Brow and Forehead Lifts Work
During surgical procedures, incisions are typically made on the hairline to allow for removal of excess skin and fat and to reposition the underlying muscles and tissues. The goal is to smooth and tighten the forehead area. The exact placement and size of any incision necessary will depend on the amount of restructuring needed. To achieve natural-looking results, our doctors combine their surgical skills with in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and an artistic eye to provide just enough lift for a more youthful appearance.
Brow and Forehead Lift Recovery
Patients should expect to recover for 2 weeks after brow and forehead lift surgery. It is important to follow your doctor’s post-op instructions completely to reduce your risk of complications such as infection, poor wound healing, pain and more.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used for temporary reduction of the appearance of facial lines and to provide a temporary brow lift.
