More about Brow Lifts
During Your Consultation
During your brow lift consultation, Dr. Davis will assess your concerns and examine your forehead, hair line, eyebrows, eyelids, and face. Depending on your individual goals and starting point, he will recommend whether an open or endoscopic brow lift is right for you. Dr. Davis may also suggest combining your brow lift with eyelid surgery to give you the best result and the most rejuvenation around your eyes.
During your brow lift procedure, Dr. Davis will either perform a traditional open brow lift or a less invasive endoscopic brow lift. The open brow technique utilizes a scar hidden along the hairline and is best for patients who have deep forehead creases, significant eyebrow drop, and a taller forehead.
The endoscopic technique utilizes a small camera and small incisions hidden in the hairline and is best suited for patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles and eyebrow drop and a shorter forehead. In both techniques, the forehead skin is elevated off of the bone and the eyebrows lifted up into a natural, youthful position. The open brow lift allows for the removal of excess skin. The surgery takes around 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
After surgery you will have a head wrap on you head and a small drain. You will return to the office the next day to have the head wrap removed, and we will continue to check on you as you recover and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns. The drain and sutures are removed at your one week appointment.
Recovery from a brow lift takes about 1-2 weeks. That first week you’ll be a bit bruised and swollen but will be feeling very good at the end of the week. Many patients like to sleep in a recliner or with their head elevated on extra pillows to help reduce swelling. After the first week, you can gradually
increase your activity level and most of the bruising can be covered with makeup at 2 weeks. You can begin strenuous exercise and rigorous activity at 8 weeks.
