You may be a candidate for a brow lift (forehead lift) if you have a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to the eyes. You may also desire a forehead or brow lift if you have deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown lines). A brow lift (forehead lift) is intended to give a more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids.
Browlift is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or monitored sedation. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Most swelling and bruising is gone in 7-10 days.
Browlift is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The specific risks and the suitability of the forehead lift procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual.
