What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery that lifts and tightens the skin on the forehead. This technique is particularly effective at smoothing forehead creases and eliminating frown lines, as well as other wrinkles in the upper face. Many patients find that a brow lift makes them look happier and younger, improving the overall appearance of the face.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
At Anh Vu, M.D., every brow lift begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Anh Vu. During this consultation, Dr. Vu carefully plans out the surgery based upon the patient's aesthetic goals. Facial surgery can create permanent, life-changing results, so he spends a substantial amount of time discussing the procedure with the patient to ensure that they achieve the results they desire. Dr. Vu is incredibly meticulous during surgery, which typically involves precise incisions made along the hairline. Then, skin may be removed or tightened to create a younger, tighter appearance. In addition, muscles can be loosened and fat can be removed to further contour the appearance. All brow lifts are performed under anesthesia so that patients remain comfortable throughout treatment.
What Can I Expect After My Brow Lift?
After a brow lift, patients can expect swelling and minor bruising or discomfort for about a week after surgery. After these side effects fade, the full results from your brow lift will be visible. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities approximately one week after treatment, but it is important to avoid any strenuous activity during this time. Following your procedure, Dr. Vu will review instructions for specific post-surgery care and discuss the timing of any follow-up appointments.
How Long Do the Results from a Brow Lift Last?
When performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon like Dr. Anh Vu, the results from a brow lift can be permanent and look completely natural. However, a brow lift does not prevent further aging from occurring, meaning that patients can still develop wrinkles and sagging skin in the future.
