The signs of aging often first show in the form of sagging eyebrows and wrinkles on the forehead. People as young as 30 can look much older than they are. The drooping eyebrows can give you a tired, angry, or sad expression that may not reflect how you actually feel. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift can reposition a low or sagging brow, improve deep frown or laugh lines, and help minimize the deep creases that develop across the forehead and the bridge of the nose. The result is a more youthful and relaxed look.

The forehead lift procedure

The brow lift is an outpatient procedure that can be done under I.V. sedation or general anesthesia. At Younique Cosmetic Surgery, we prefer the endoscopic brow lift over the traditional lift that uses a long incision along the forehead, leaving a visible scar. The endoscopic lift leaves minimal scarring, with far less chance of complications and a much faster recovery period.

During the forehead lift procedure, small incisions will be made at the hairline, releasing the tightened muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines. After all of the attachments of the forehead and brow are released, the skin is pulled up to the desired position and sutures are used to hold the skin in place.

Risks and recovery

As with all surgical procedures, there are possible risks and complications associated with the brow lift. Fortunately complications are rare—and usually minor. Risks include but are not limited to infection, hair loss at the incision site, difficulty moving the forehead, and scarring.

You will experience mild to moderate discomfort for the first few days. Keeping your head elevated and applying ice packs will help keep swelling and pressure down. Avoid any strenuous activity for two weeks. Patients usually can return to work 10 to 14 days after their surgery. It will take several weeks to see the full results of your forehead lift. However, once you are fully healed, you will clearly see the improvements!

There are not enough words to express how pleased I am with every procedure I’ve had done. Dr. Youssef is an amazing surgeon, not only is he caring but also a perfectionist. All I can say is that it was a life changing experience.
