Brow lift surgery can remove wrinkles from your forehead and reduce the prominence of sagging eyebrows. The forehead area is among the first places to show the signs of facial aging. Furrows, deep wrinkles, and drooping skin may become more apparent as you get older. Our Atlanta plastic surgeons, Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Farber, and their surgical team have years of experience performing brow lift surgery to restore youthfulness to your expression.
Some of the earliest and most prominent signs of facial aging appear on your forehead. Over time, skin begins to lose volume and elasticity in the brow and temple area. Frown lines (vertical creases between your eyebrows), wrinkling across your forehead, and drooping eyebrows can begin to show in your early thirties, making you look tired, angry, sad, and even confused when that is not what you are feeling at all.
At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, to return your brow to a more youthful shape and position. The brow lift procedure can dramatically minimize the creases and wrinkles located across the forehead and between the eyebrows. Thanks to modern technology and medical advances, today’s brow lift techniques can produce more natural-looking results than in the past.
Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Farber, and their plastic surgery team recommend brow lifts to men and women between thirty-five to sixty years old who have lines and creases around the forehead and brows that have dropped lower over the eyes. A forehead lift can:
Brow lift surgery is not recommended for correcting cosmetic concerns at the edge of the eyes or under the eyes.
There are many types of brow lift surgery techniques available today. The decision regarding which forehead lift is right for you will be determined during your consultation at our Atlanta offices.
Our brow lift surgeons will encourage you to openly discuss your aesthetic goals before we thoroughly examine your brow to determine if your expectations can be achieved. We will then recommend a brow lift procedure based on your facial anatomy and what will work best for you, as our priority is that you are happy and satisfied with the final results.
Most forehead lift procedures are performed with local anesthesia and light sleep sedation, but general anesthesia may also be an option. The length and placement of your incisions will be dependent on the type of brow lift you are having.
Generally, during your forehead lift surgery, your brow lift surgeon will gently elevate the skin and muscles of your forehead, remove loose skin and excess fat in the brow line, and rearrange the muscles of your forehead (when necessary) before lifting your brow skin to its new position. Upon completion of your brow lift surgery, the incision will be closed with sutures or staples and a dressing will be applied to your face and head to protect the incisions and encourage proper healing.
There are many different brow lift surgery techniques, including:
Some brow lift surgeries involve moving, rearranging, or weakening the muscles in your forehead and brow area. There are three main muscles in this part of your face, including:
Because a brow lift is a very subtle procedure, it can make you look years younger without dramatically changing your overall appearance. The results typically last for five to ten years. Besides undergoing brow lift surgery for cosmetic reasons, many patients choose the procedure to improve their vision because excess skin above the eyes can impair vision. Although a brow lift can be performed as an isolated surgery, it is commonly combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), as together these procedures can provide a more rejuvenated look to the entire upper face. By reducing and tightening loose skin above the eyes, forehead lift surgery can create a more refreshed and alert expression.*
The extent of correction that is needed via a brow lift varies by patient, so the cost is very individualized. The cost of your forehead lift is determined after your consultation. Payment is due at the time of the surgery, and Astra Plastic Surgeryaccepts cash, personal checks, credit cards, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
