Brow Lift Procedures Newnan

A brow lift is a great way to reduce wrinkle lines and raise sagging eyebrows. Wondering if this cosmetic procedure is right for you? If you are interested in looking years younger, this type of plastic surgery may be just what the doctor ordered.

Brow Lift ProceduresWhat Exactly is a Brow Lift?

Also called a forehead lift, this cosmetic surgery procedure is performed to reduce the horizontal wrinkle lines that naturally occur across the forehead. It is also used to reduce the wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. The procedure also reduces frown lines, that is, those lines that appear between the eyebrows. A brow lift can even raise sagging eyebrows and place the brows in a more youthful and alert position above the eyes.

How Does a Brow Lift Work?

Anesthesia is generally used to make you comfortable before beginning a brow lift procedure. From there, surgeons will perform the initial incision. This will either be an endoscopic or coronal incision, depending on the doctor’s preference. Endoscopic incisions use a thin tube with a camera on the end of it – an endoscope – that is inserted in the hairline. Surgeons use the endoscope to move muscle and tissue under the skin to correct visible creases at skin level. Coronal incisions are cuts created on the top of the head from ear to ear. Once this type of incision is made, the doctor lifts the forehead skin so he can more easily adjust tissue and muscle to reduce wrinkles in the forehead and other facial areas.

How Effective is a Brow Lift?

Brow lifts have been known to make patients appear years younger. The surgery can increase your confidence and enhance and rejuvenate your appearance. Not only that, but the procedure can alleviate tension in the forehead muscles and make patients more comfortable. These results look natural, and they can last up to ten years or longer.

What is the Recovery Procedure and Time for a Brow Lift?

Recovery from this type of surgery generally includes loosely wrapping your head to minimize swelling and bruising. During recovery, you can expect to take medication to aid in the healing process and prevent infection while reducing pain. You also should plan on not performing any vigorous activity for the first few weeks after surgery. Keeping your head elevated for two days following the surgery allows for a quick, full, and proper recovery.

The initial incision and wound should be pretty well healed in about two weeks. Around this time, stitches are removed. Even after, however, healing will continue for several weeks as swelling continues to dissipate.

For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    Facelift

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
