Browlift Conveniently located to serve Kirkland and Bellevue
Browlift 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. Dr. Brad Remington has vast experience in facial rejuvenation and achieves outstanding results for patients undergoing browlifts in Kirkland.
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. This method of browlift surgery has become a popular choice due to its less invasive nature; the incisions are much smaller than the single long incision required for a traditional browlift.
The corrugator 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. Smoking interferes with your body’s healing process and can lead to complications such as infection; because of this, it must be avoided during recovery.
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. Dr. Remington will give an honest assessment to help you decide whether the procedure is right for your needs and goals.
During the consultation, the doctor go over your complete medical history, including past procedures and allergies. He will discuss every aspect of the browlift procedure and will be happy to answer questions.
How Much Does a Browlift Cost?
The overall cost of a Browlift is affected by anesthesia fees, hospital fees, post-surgery garments, and medications. Price is also impacted by medical tests, surgeon’s fees, and the exact techniques employed. At your consultation, the surgeon will create a customized surgical plan for your browlift surgery and can provide a price estimate.
