Q. What is eyebrow ptosis?
Ans. This is the medical term for a drooping eyebrow. This can cause significant overhang of upper eyelid skin over the lashes and interfere with the visual function or appear unsightly. It usually occurs on both sides, but can be asymmetrical, appearing only on one side.
Q. Am I too young for a Browlift?
Ans. There is no lower age limit for this procedure. Some patients have low brows at an early age, a feature that is often hereditary.
Q. Can I have other procedures done at the same time as a brow lift?
Ans. You can, and often patients decide to have a Blepharoplasty at the same time if they have excess upper eyelid skin as well. Doing multiple procedures on the same day does not lengthen the recovery time, and will allow the patient to accomplish many goals with one surgery.
Q. Can a brow lift improve my vision?
Ans. Some patients with low brows and excess eyelid skin can have trouble seeing to the sides because their vision is blocked by sagging skin. In these cases, elevating the brows (along with a Blepharoplasty) will improve vision by relieving this obstruction.
Q. Will a brow lift give me a surprised look?
Ans. Botox can be used to paralyze the muscles that keep the brows low, allowing them to rise. This effect is mild, though – a surgical brow lift is much more effective at raising the brows. Also, the effects of Botox last only a few months, whereas the effects of brow lift surgery are generally permanent.
Q. How much pain will I have after surgery?
Ans. Brow lift procedures do not lead to severe pain, but you will have mild soreness and tightness of your forehead. These symptoms are easily controlled with medications that we will prescribe for you.
Q. Do patients ever need another brow lift?
Ans. The benefits of brow lifts will last indefinitely, and revision surgery is quite rare. Occasionally, patients will want their brows raised even higher, which can be accomplished by revision surgery.
Q. Who is brow lifting for?
Ans. It is most commonly performed in the 40–60 age range to minimize the visible effects of aging. People with inherited conditions such as a low, heavy brow or furrow lines above the nose, can achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure.
Q. How is a brow lift surgery performed?
Ans. Brow lifts and Forehead lifts are performed under general anesthesia. The incision is usually made well behind the hairline so that the scar will not be visible. A brow lift can restore a more youthful look to the area above and around your eyes. The muscles and tissues that cause furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to raise the eyebrows, smooth the forehead and reduce frown lines and crow’s feet.
Q. Are there any risks in having a brow lift?
Ans. Fortunately, significant complications from this procedure are infrequent. Every year, many people undergo successful surgery, experience no major problems, and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
Q. What happens after brow lift surgery?
Ans. Once your eyebrow lift surgery is complete, the scalp incisions will be closed with stitches or clips and the area will be washed. Gauze and an elastic bandage may also be applied. The next step after eyebrow lift surgery is simply to leave the skin to heal. The healing process for eyebrow lift surgery is very rapid, with most of our patients able to return to work within a week to 10 days. You should be able to shower and shampoo your hair within five days after surgery, or soon as your bandage is removed.
Q. What results can I expect?
Ans. A brow lift can restore a more youthful look to the area above and around your eyes. The muscles and tissues that cause furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to raise the eyebrows, smooth the forehead and reduce frown lines and crow’s feet.
