Candidates for Brow Lift Surgery
Candidates for Brow Lift surgery include men and women who look in the mirror, and see not only heavy drooping eyelids, but eyebrows drooping as well. You may also see deep frown lines between your eyebrows and deep transverse lines across your forehead. If you are unsure of whether or not you want a browlift, try standing in front of a mirror and placing the palms of your hands to the sides of your eyes above the eyebrows. Then pull the skin back from the eyes, raising the forehead.
First, the patient’s hair is tied with rubber bands near the incision site. Then Dr. Skalicky or Dr. Shafran makes a coronal (headphone-shaped) incision behind the hairline, stretching between the ears and across the top of the forehead. The incision may be placed further back or made along the skull bone joints to minimize visibility in patients with thinning hair or those who are bald. Then the forehead skin is lifted, tissue is removed, muscles are adjusted and the eyebrows may be lifted. Excess skin is trimmed and the incision is closed with stitches or clips.
The site is washed and the rubber bands are removed. Stitches will be protected with gauze or bandages. Brow Lift Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and oral or IV sedation, and takes about an hour. Discomfort is minimal to moderate. Stitches or skin clips are removed in 7 to 10 days. Most patients return to work in one to two weeks. Recommended followup with Dr. Skalicky or Dr. Shafran. Overall, eyelid surgeries is a very safe procedure with consistent results. There are over 500,000 blepharoplasties performed in the US every year.
