People between the ages of 40 and 70 typically complain about unwanted furrows and deep forehead lines, which can be caused by stress or muscle activity. By receiving a brow lift, a person's eyebrows can be elevated to restore a youthful, refreshed look in that area.
Younger patients who are suffering from inherited conditions like a low and heavy brow can also benefit from this procedure, especially when the brow lift is done in conjunction with a facelift. The optimal candidates for brow lifts are non-smokers who are in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the surgery.
Our Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Miranda, believes that gentle, natural results are nearly always more aesthetically pleasing than dramatic and overdone changes, and he has over 11 years of experience performing plastic surgery procedures.
Brow Lifts: Procedure & Recovery
When you contact the Pacific Plastic Surgery Group about a brow lift, you will be able to schedule a consultation with Dr. Miranda to discuss your concerns and find answers to your questions. In order to deliver the best results possible, Dr. Miranda will take into consideration your facial aesthetics, skin characteristics and personal preferences to develop a tailored plan for your brow lift.
After local anesthesia is administered, Dr. Miranda will make incisions in inconspicuous places in order to gently lift and reposition the forehead skin and muscles, removing any excess skin and fatty tissue as well. After this is finished, the tissue and skin will be repositioned and secured with sutures, small surgical screws and/or tissue glue.
Complimentary procedures like face lifts, eyelifts, and other skin resurfacing procedures can also be done to further improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
This surgery usually takes one hour to complete, and the recovery time varies from one to two weeks. In order to learn more about the potential risks involved and available financing options, call a San Francisco plastic surgeon at our office today!
