What is Brow Lift?
The brow lift is a technique to fix saggy and wrinkled skin around your eyes. It improves frown lines, the vertical creases that develop between the eyebrows. It gives the person a more youthful look.
Why is Brow Lift Performed?
The eyebrows play a very important role in a person’s appearance. A sagging, heavily furrowed brow can cause us to look constantly tired, worried or even angry.
With a brow lift surgery your eyes will appear brighter and more naturally alert. This will also increase your self-confidence no longer worried about looking “worried”.
What does surgery entail?
Browlift is a very short procedure and you can go home the same day of the surgery.
Brow lifts can be performed in the following two different ways.
With the endoscopic method an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end) and special instruments placed through small incisions made within the hairline. This allows the tissue and muscle beneath the skin to be adjusted, correcting the source of visible creases and furrows in the forehead.
Women with very high foreheads, an incision just at the anterior hairline may be recommended by Dr. Sneha. In this way, the brow can be lifted without altering the height of the front hairline.
Brow lift incisions are usually closed with sutures or skin adhesives.
What is the recovery time?
Since the brow lift is performed using local anesthesia you need not stay at the hospital. You will be allowed to go home on the same day of the surgery. Swelling and bruising are most common during the first 10 days following the surgery and are mostly resolved after about 2 weeks. Following Dr. Shena’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery.
What are the potential complications?
Even though brow lifts add to the aesthetics of your face, in some cases few complications may occur. The most common complications are as follows.
- Scarring : Scarring might be visible in some cases after browlift surgery.
- Skin Numbness : A brow lift can cause temporary or permanent numbness on the forehead or top of the scalp.
- Asymmetry in the position of the brows- Even with all the precision and precaution eyebrows can end up looking uneven. However, this can be fixed with additional surgery.
