Browlift surgery, also known as a “forehead lift” or “browplasty,” is a surgical procedure that raises sagging brows to create a more youthful and alert appearance. A brow lift can reduce wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes and can also raise the eyebrows for a more open, refreshed look. The procedure is designed to correct drooping eyebrows caused by aging or genetics. It can also improve hooding of the upper eyelids and address other cosmetic issues related to the brow area. Browlifts are typically performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or facelift surgery. The team at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, WA, can evaluate you to help you determine if this surgery is right for you.
What Can I Expect From Browlift Surgery?
The goal of browlift surgery is to create a more youthful and alert appearance by lifting the eyebrows and smoothing wrinkles in the forehead. During your consultation at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in Seattle, WA, you and your provider will discuss your concerns, desired results, and possible surgical options. Depending on your needs, there are several different techniques that can be used to perform a browlift, such as an endoscopic procedure or a conventional open approach.
Once the type of browlift procedure is decided upon, and a procedure date is scheduled, it usually takes up to two hours to complete the surgery. Recovery time varies depending on the technique used but generally requires around two weeks. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and numbness in the treated area, which should subside over time. Following all post-operative instructions provided by your plastic surgeon is the best way to reduce the risk or avoid complications and ensure proper healing.
