Brow & Forehead Lift

Brow Lift & Forehead Lift

Drooping of the outer ends of the eyebrows is frequently one of the first signs of aging in most people from the Detroit area. It causes the upper lid skin to appear redundant until it spills onto the eyelashes themselves. Pre brow lift patients often complain that their eyes appear to be getting smaller or deeper-set and that any mascara or eyeliner they apply usually ends up high on the upper part of the lids a short while after it has been applied. We can perform a brow lift procedure that dramatically improves the drooping of the eyebrows..

 

A brow lift creates the appearance of large, youthful eyes – there is often a lessening of the “crow’s feet” that comes with aging skin around the eye. Depending on the amount and the location of the person’s hair, incisions may be hidden directly above the brows, in forehead creases or along the front of the hairline. Brow lift and forehead corrections are not benefited by the facelift or blepharoplasty operation but can be dramatically improved with a brow lift and forehead lift – 3 to 5 small incisions placed behind the hairline to allow small telescopes to help elevate the brows.

The brow lift operation generally takes about 45 minutes to an hour and can be performed under local with a light sedation or under general anesthetic. Mild swelling and discoloration usually develops around the eyes but disappears in most cases by the 7th day after surgery. On occasion a small drain may be used to prevent accumulation of small pockets of fluid. This is removed the day after brow lift surgery. A large bulky dressing is worn for 72 hours or as needed.
