A brow lift is a surgical procedure that tightens or alters the forehead and eyebrow regions to smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyebrows, and improve frown lines. Advances in brow lift surgery make it possible to perform the procedure through a variety of approaches, including endoscopy. Brow lift surgery is individualized for each patient. The surgical incisions used may vary with the technique selected by Dr. Patterson to meet your needs.

The Brow lift Process

A forehead lift, or brow lift, eliminates drooping brows, horizontal expression lines, and deep forehead wrinkles for a more youthful, refreshed appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Patterson alters the underlying muscle and tissue to create smooth skin on your forehead and eliminate furrows or frown lines. Surgery isn’t always the answer. To achieve the best cosmetic results, Dr. Patterson offers both endoscopic techniques and conventional surgical methods. A facelift or cosmetic eyelid surgery often accompanies the procedure.

Preparing for Your Brow lift

After your initial consultation, you will have a second visit with us two weeks prior to your scheduled procedure. This visit will cover any pre and postop instructions as well as any medication that will need to be administered after.

Brow lift Procedure

The brow lift procedure typically takes 1-2 hours. Depending on your individual needs, you will either go home the same day or stay overnight in the hospital.

Brow lift Recovery

Sutures and/staples are normally removed within 4-10 days (unless dissolvable). Swelling, bruising and soreness is typically gone within 2-3 weeks.

Exercise after Brow lift

Most patients return to non strenuous work 7-10 days following surgery. Strenuous activities can be resumed at approximately 6-8 weeks after surgery.
