Browlift Conveniently located to serve Seattle and Bellevue
Brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure designed to elevate the eyebrows and improve one’s youthful appearance. It enhances the forehead head region by excising and recontouring the skin of the forehead and brow.
What Is Brow Lift Surgery?
Brow lifts are performed using an endoscopic approach, in which a lighted scope is placed through incisions in the forehead hairline and used to release the forehead soft tissue from the underlying bone.
The corrugators muscles that cause the “scowling” appearance can also be weakened through this approach. The mobilized soft tissue of the forehead is then fixated to the bone with a device called an endotine to secure the tissue in position.
Recovering From a Brow Lift
While you are recovering from the brow lift surgery, the treatment area will be loosely wrapped to help minimize any swelling that occurs. You will also be provided with post-surgical care instructions to help ensure that you heal properly and recover as quickly as possible.
It’s important that you refrain from activities that might expose your incisions to unnecessary force as it can damage the treatment area and alter the end result. You can expect the typical recovery time to be 10-14 days, and you’ll be able to return to your normal activities soon after. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with the help of pain medication prescribed by your Kirkland, Washington plastic surgeon, Dr. Brad Remington.
Are You A Brow Lift Candidate?
Before the procedure, it is essential to undergo a consultation to make sure if the brow lift is the right choice for you. If you’re experiencing some degree of sagging that you’re not happy with, we can assess the situation and help determine if this is the right course of action for you.
Evaluation of the position of the brows is essential to determining whether the upper eyelids alone are responsible for the excess skin appearance typically seen or if brow ptosis (sagging) is contributory. If the brows are lower, a brow lift may be indicated.
