What Is Involved In The Procedure?
Brow lift surgeries are typically completed within 1-2 hours using one of three methods. A coronal brow lift involves an incision behind your hairline, from ear to ear on the top of your head. Your forehead is then lifted into its new position. This technique is not usually done on patients with high hairlines, thin hair, or those likely to lose their hair.
In a hairline brow lift, your surgeon makes an incision between the top of your forehead and hairline to remove a small amount of skin. Your hairline is not pulled back with this method.
Dr. Stein uses an advanced, minimally invasive technique called an endoscopic brow lift in which tiny incisions behind the hairline are made, resulting in minimal, well-concealed scarring. Additional benefits of this method include less swelling, faster recovery times, and natural-looking results.
How Should I Prepare for My Surgery?
Prior to your procedure, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation. You should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other supplements as they can increase bleeding and bruising. You should also stop smoking prior to the procedure. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from surgery, as well as stay with you overnight following your procedure.
