At Lake Mary Plastic Surgery, we believe in the importance of our patients’ privacy. All before and after photographs of Browlift procedures will therefore not be displayed. A complete gallery will be shown during your consultation with Dr. Shoukas.
Also known as a forehead lift, a browlift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose and helps improve and reposition a low or sagging brow.
Brow Lifting is usually performed in the operating room under general anesthesia.
Correction of a low-positioned or sagging brow may be made with or without the use of an endoscope through incisions at the temples and in the scalp.
This technique may be done in conjunction with incisions hidden within the natural crease of the upper eyelids to eliminate frown lines between the brows, on or above the bridge of the nose.
An alternative browlift technique is the coronal browlift. The coronal brow lift can pinpoint specific regions of the brow to correct. This technique involves an incision from ear to ear, lifting the forehead and removing excess skin from the scalp.
The incision lines from a browlift are well concealed within the hair or natural contours of the face unless they are placed at the hairline to shorten the forehead.
Results appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal smoother forehead skin and a more youthful, restful appearance.
When your procedure is completed, your forehead may be taped and your head may be loosely wrapped to minimize swelling and bruising. A thin tube may be present to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect under the skin.
After surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions and an elastic head bandage or support garment may be used to minimize swelling.
The final results of brow lifting are long lasting in most patients.
