The development of lines, wrinkles, and sagging are unavoidable effects of aging that can cause you to look tired, unhappy, or older than you are. Fortunately, at Rockland Eye Physicians & Surgeons, oculoplastic surgeon James Kirszrot and our skilled team can provide a brow lift to address these signs of aging. It involves removing excess skin and tightening the remaining tissue for a more awake and youthful appearance. We have offices in West Nyack and Garnerville, NY, to serve you.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure specifically designed to reduce signs of aging in the forehead and eyebrow area, as well as the bridge of the nose. This procedure is commonly combined with other facial surgeries including blepharoplasty for more comprehensive results.
Is This Treatment Right for You?
Typically, a brow lift is recommended to patients who are dissatisfied with:
- The positioning of their brow
- Deep horizontal forehead creases
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Wrinkles on the bridge of the nose
Patients must be over the age of 18. While there is not an age limit for the procedure, it is typically most effective for patients between 40 and 70 years old. As with any surgery, the best candidates are patients who are in good overall health and who do not smoke. Our knowledgeable team can help determine whether a brow lift is suited to your needs.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Prior to surgery, anesthesia is provided for a more comfortable experience. There are several brow lift methods that can be used depending on your needs and whether you are combining it with other procedures such as blepharoplasty.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure specifically designed to reduce signs of aging in the forehead and eyebrow area, as well as the bridge of the nose.
Each method involves accessing the underlying tissues of the forehead through several incisions that are carefully placed to result in discreet scars hidden in the hairline. The doctor will delicately lift the forehead skin, remove excess tissue, reposition the muscles, and elevate the eyebrows to a more alert-looking position. Once the necessary refinements are complete, Dr. Kirszrot will trim away excess skin, tighten remaining skin, and skillfully close the incision. Protective bandaging may then be provided as needed to protect the treatment site.
A brow lift is an outpatient procedure, meaning you will return home after your surgery. You should avoid any strenuous activity for 10 to 14 days. Patients can usually return to work within a week.
