Brow Lift & Forehead Lift
Dr. Schalit performs Brow Lift and Forehead Lift to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. With new endoscopic techniques and less invasive approaches, the whole face can be treated in a sequential and planned fashion to address all the patient’s needs and concerns.
The Brow Lift or Forehead Lift procedure can be performed in conjunction with other procedures. An incision is generally made across the top of the head from the front of one ear to the front of the other ear. The forehead and brows are elevated and excess skin is removed. The flap is then sutured. Newer techniques now allow us to perform Forehead Lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an Endoscope and specialized instruments. This accelerates the healing process.
After Brow Lift or Forehead Lift
Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur, they should subside within a few weeks. Our doctors will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics approximately two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
