BROW LIFT SURGERY (Forehead Lift)

Over time, there are changes to the facial skin and soft tissues that can be exacerbated by weight changes and sun exposure. The facial skin loses elasticity and begins to sag, the volume of our faces generally begins to shift from higher to lower positions; and the brow and eyelids are no exception. In addition, skin folds and wrinkles become more prominent through changes in muscular action and gravity.

Browlift surgery is a procedure designed to correct these problems. It elevates and redrapes the forehead skin to elevate the brow into a more youthful position. It is a powerful procedure that can refresh the appearance of the eye. Browlift surgery can also be designed to correct problems with both forehead and glabellar wrinkles. The procedure is performed using incisions that are placed at or within the hairline, or possibly in a preexisting wrinkle. The incisions are individualized to a patient's needs, and Dr. McKane performs short scar brow lifts if possible.

The procedure causes mild discomfort that can be relieved with pain medication. Some mild bruising and swelling is common after surgery and usually subsides within two to four weeks. In women, cosmetics can be applied after the sutures are removed. Activities that may elevate the blood pressure are recommended to be avoided during the first two weeks, and heavy lifting is not permitted during this time period.

Brow lift surgery is a well-suited procedure for an accredited outpatient SurgiCenter. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or with general anesthesia. Patients who have more significant surgical needs or those with other medical problems will have their surgery performed in the hospital.

Each year, numerous men and women undergo brow lift surgery. Nevertheless, you should be aware of the potential problems of surgery and the specific risks that are typically associated with this procedure. Postoperative complications such as delayed healing, nerve damage, infection, or localized collections of blood are uncommon. Temporary numbness, discomfort, and itching are also possible complications that may arise after brow lift surgery. Smokers should be aware that they will need to quit at least four weeks before and after the surgery. This is because complications develop more frequently when a patient continues to smoke. Closely stick to Dr. McKane's advice on follow-up care during the healing process, as this will help to minimize your risk of complications.
