Some people often look tired or stern. This appearance is often caused by eyebrow that tend to slide down, bringing with them the upper eyelids. This drawback is due to the loosening of the tissue caused by aging. An eyebrow lift – possibly in combination with blepharoplasty- can correct this defect.
What is a browlift?
A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure in which the skin of the forehead and eyebrows is tightened to eliminate a sagging eyebrow or to correct frown lines on the forehead.
The ideal candidate
The ideal candidate presents a sagging forehead or brows that hang too low and too close to the eyes. A brow lift surgery is intended to give a more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids.
Dr. Zadeh makes several small incisions usually located behind the hairline. The forehead skin is lifted and repositioned causing frown lines to weaken. The brow lift procedure may be done by itself or in accordance with a facelift or an eyelid lift and will be discussed with Dr. Zadeh during the consultation.
Dr. Zadeh performs brow lifts under general anaesthesia for patient safety.
Risks and complications are to be explained thoroughly during your consultation with Dr. Zadeh.
Post operative and healing
It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly from one patient to another. It is normal to experience swelling and vision may be blurred as a result of administered ointment to alleviate and protect the eye during surgery. There is surprisingly little discomfort, however if the case, can be alleviated with oral pain medication. Rest is important and elevation of the head can help reduce swelling. Expect temporary numbness and itching of the scalp as the nerves heal. Any head dressings and drain tubes that have been inserted are in most cases removed one to two days after surgery. It is important to refrain from strenuous activities during the post -operative period. Normal activities may be resumed within two weeks post surgery.
