A natural result of aging is the gradual drooping of the forehead and brow. These changes can create an aged or tired expression, despite how you feel inside. This contrast can cause many patients to lose confidence in their appearance. A brow lift aims to match your outer and inner self, creating a lively, younger look through a modern procedure.
At Tampa Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we focus on providing our patients with top-quality procedures. Every brow lift surgery is designed and adapted to match your unique needs and goals. Using modern methods, Dr. Brown provides rejuvenation that can help boost confidence and pride in how you look. Call our office today to schedule your consultation.
What Is a Brow Lift?
Gravity, aging, and loss of skin elasticity result in the forehead developing a sagging appearance. A droopy brow may cause an unwanted appearance of being tired, sad, or angry even if you feel just as lively as ever. That is what a brow lift aims to change with a straightforward procedure.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to fight the effects of aging around the forehead area. It works by lifting the skin and muscles on your forehead for a more youthful look. Dr. Brown’s extensive experience allows him to deliver results that look and feel natural. Using a fully-tailored approach, he prevents the “artificial” or tight look that many patients wish to avoid.
Ideal Brow Lift Candidate
Although patients younger or older than this range can still have this surgery performed, brow lift patients are typically between their 40s-60s. If you have loose skin or excessive wrinkling along your forehead, then a brow lift could be right for you.
Great candidates for this procedure all exemplify the following qualities:
- Are in good general physical and mental health
- Are eager to treat sagging and wrinkle lines in the forehead area
- Have realistic expectations of the procedure
A brow lift is often done in combination with a neck lift and eyelid surgery as an overall package to minimize the visible effects of aging.
For patients with less severe wrinkles or loose skin, you may also benefit from a non-surgical approach. Using Botox or laser treatments, we can treat milder wrinkling without the need for surgery.
The first step to see what is best for you is to schedule your consultation. This personal meeting allows you and Dr. Brown to see what treatment plan will best help you achieve your goals. Call us today to get started or request a consultation online.
Brow Lift Recovery
Your recovery experience for a brow lift will depend on several factors, including your health and age. However, the general outline of recovery is often the same. After your procedure, the initial downtime is typically between 1-2 weeks. During this time, it is important to avoid strenuous activity and follow Dr. Brown’s recovery instructions.
Patients can expect normal bruising and swelling in the treated area for a couple of weeks. We recommend using ice packs to help pain relief and reduce swelling. Also, we recommend sleeping with a slight elevation and evenly (not on one side or the other) on the back of your head. After 1-2 weeks, we remove any sutures.
You can expect to see your final results a couple months after your procedure, once your body has fully recovered.
If you have any concerns during your recovery, do not hesitate to contact us. Dr. Brown and his team will happily assist you with a speedy and comfortable recovery.
