As we age, the tissues of the brow begin to wrinkle and sag, causing creases, furrows, and a generally tired or even unhappy appearance. Patients who would like to refresh their appearance and achieve a more youthful-looking, renewed appearance may find brow lift surgery the perfect choice.
A brow lift (also called a forehead lift) is a quick, simple procedure that is done under local anesthesia, most commonly at the time of your upper eyelid lift. Occasionally, Dr. Giyaur will use the blepharoplasty incision to perform a brow lift. Very rarely, a separate incision that is hidden in the eyebrow is needed to support and fixate the brow. A brow lift in Brooklyn is an adjunctive procedure to blepharoplasty that helps to achieve the most natural result and prevent excessive eyelid skin removal. At the time of your initial eyelid lift consultation, Dr. Giyaur will discuss with you whether or not you may benefit from a brow lift.
A brow lift is a very popular procedure for patients who want to refresh and renew their appearance. It provides a range of benefits, including the following:
When the skin of the forehead sags significantly, it can cause an unhappy appearance, even when you’re feeling happy or neutral. When your face is at rest, your sagging brow can result in a grumpy look or a tired expression, leaving the way you come across to others out of your control.
When the brow is sagging, the eyebrows hang over the eyes, causing the eyes to look older and heavy. Occasionally, a patient will come to us complaining about their droopy eyelids — but after examining closely, Dr. Giyaur discovers that in addition to sagging eyelids, there’s also a significant brow droop that is creating part of the problem. Because of this, Dr. Giyaur may recommend a brow lift in Brooklyn.
During your consultation, Dr. Giyaur will take review your medical history in detail and examine your face, brow, and skin. She will discuss the brow lift procedure in detail with you and ask about your expectations and aesthetic goals.
Dr. Giyaur will take the time to answer all of your questions and concerns to ensure you feel confident moving forward with your brow lift in Brooklyn. As a part of this, she will discuss your surgical and non-surgical options, including complementary procedures such as eyelid surgery.
Photographs will be taken in order to compare your appearance before and after surgery.
Brow lift surgery in Brooklyn is a relatively simple surgical procedure. There are a variety of brow lift techniques that made be used, depending on your needs and goals.
Generally, Dr. Giyaur will make small incisions around the forehead at the hairline that are difficult to see once healed. From there, the skin is lifted, repositioned, and secured with sutures or small, absorbable tacks. Excess skin is trimmed away, leaving your brow renewed, lifted, and youthfully natural-looking.
You will be able to return home with a friend or family member once the surgery is complete. You will need some time to rest and recuperate as you heal. Expect some bruising and swelling after your brow lift that lasts for about two weeks. Sleep with your head elevated and use a cool pack to help reduce these effects.
Swelling will begin to subside within about one week, then continue to fade over the next several weeks. After about one week, your stitches will be removed. Do not exercise strenuously, lift anything heavy, or swim for two weeks.
