For wrinkles and sagging skin in the forehead, patients may want to consider a brow lift at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD. We offer this and other facial surgery procedures to men and women in Powell and Knoxville, TN.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a facial surgery procedure that addresses loose skin in the forehead to rejuvenate the appearance. The eyebrow and forehead areas are often the first parts of the face to develop signs of aging, so many patients find that they are able to benefit from a brow lift procedure. The brow lift treatment refreshes the appearance to eliminate the angry or tired appearance that can be caused by drooping brows. The results from a brow lift can be further improved by combining the procedure with a facelift or a blepharoplasty.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every brow lift procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your personal preferences and unique cosmetic goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit our office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable. In addition, we offer CosmetAssure insurance with every cosmetic surgery, so you can go into your treatment with confidence and peace of mind.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
For the brow lift procedure, we will use general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort during the surgery. To begin treatment, we will make incisions along the hairline, where it will blend in with the hair for a natural look. If you are combining your brow lift with other facial surgery procedures, we may be able to use other approaches for the incision. Once incisions are made, we will remove and tighten skin and tissue to produce a smooth, youthful appearance in the forehead. After the desired results are achieved, we will close the incisions, completing the surgery.
What is the Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
After a brow lift, you can expect some bruising and swelling around the forehead area. You may have to take a week or more off of work and other activities in order to heal and allow these effects to subside. You will have to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for at least a month after treatment in order to ensure a smooth recovery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Brow Lift?
The results from your brow lift will become visible as swelling and bruising fades. It can take several months for the full results of treatment to appear, but you will notice significant results after the initial recovery period. Once your full results are visible, you can expect your results to be permanent. However, you will continue to develop gradual changes in the appearance of the forehead due to the natural aging process.
