Is a Brow Lift part of a facelift?
A brow lift is a standalone procedure that is often performed with a face lift or eyelid lift. The surgery helps to achieve more youthful contours by reducing the sagging and wrinkles of the forehead. It helps to ensure that all of the facial features appear youthful and friendly, not scowling or sad.
What is the Brow Lift procedure like?
Several different approaches may be used, but Dr. Friedlander prefers to use an incision in the lateral scalp which can be incorporated into a face lift. The specific approach will be customized to your needs. In patients with a high forehead, an anterior hairline approach may be used. When extensive sun damage is present, or if the skin is very thick and sebaceous, it may be necessary to perform a coronal brow lift. The muscles will be weakened and the skin tightened, elevating the brow in all of the approaches. There may be some postoperative swelling or bruising, which resolves relatively quickly. You may feel a ridge in the hair for several weeks. Sutures or staples are removed after 7-10 days. You are able to return to work in a week if no other surgery is being performed.
