About Brow Lift
What is a brow lift or browplasty?
The gradual loss of elasticity from the skin and repeated muscle contractions on the forehead can lead to heavy eyebrows that descend lower on the face, making your face look older and more tired. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a surgical procedure that elevates the skin on the brow and addresses the signs of aging, such as drooping eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, and sagging creases between the brows and eyelids.
A brow lift can correct the following:
- Drooping eyebrows that descend lower on the face
- Deep horizontal forehead lines
- Deep vertical creases between the eyebrows
- Sagging folds between the eyebrows and eyelids
- Impaired vision because of sagging eyelids
Candidates for a brow lift:
- Are dissatisfied with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases on the forehead
- Want their resting face to look more pleasant and happy instead of sad or tired
- Have generally good physical and mental health
- Have realistic expectations from the brow lift procedure
- Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before the procedure
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized brow lift technique
Dr. Jeffrey Lisiecki performs his unique brow lift in NYC within his state-of-the-art surgical center under general anesthesia. He generally uses an endoscopic or temporal approach for a brow lift, which involves making small incisions along or behind the hairline to reposition the excess skin tissues and tighten the underlying forehead muscles. This procedure allows the surgeon to make considerable improvements to the forehead via well-concealed incisions.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions in or behind the hairline, through which he repositions the skin and underlying structures, beautifully shaping the brow and making the expression lines dissipate. This procedure elevates the brows and restores a youthful-looking appearance. The procedure usually concludes within 2 hours.
Recovery after a brow lift surgery
The endoscopic or temporal brow lift surgery involves making small incisions along or behind the hairline, so the recovery is straightforward. You experience minimal post-treatment swelling and bruising, and the scars are virtually invisible because they’re hidden along the hairline or in the hair. You may experience mild numbness on the scalp, but that should dissipate. Most patients can resume most of their daily activities within 10 days and strenuous activities within 4 weeks. The sutures will be removed after a week or two.
