Many people are unhappy with the way their brow and forehead look as they age. Wrinkles, furrows, droopy eyebrows—all of these can make you look tired or stressed out.Dr. Adam Stein, Raleigh’s facial cosmetic specialist, has performed over 100 successful brow lifts each year to give patients a refined, youthful appearance without compromising their unique characteristics.
If your forehead has developed wrinkles or brow furrows, and you feel like your eyes are becoming overshadowed, consider abrow lift. A brow lift is performed to correct downward shifting tissues by removing excess skin and tightening underlying muscles that support the eyebrow area. In some cases, the eyebrows themselves are repositioned for a more open, pleasant appearance. The result is a rejuvenated look that makes people appear years younger.
Dr. Stein makes the incisions in your hairline or the natural creases of your eyelids to access your forehead’s underlying muscle structure and fatty tissues. Anchoring sutures are placed in the muscles to raise them into a more youthful position. If you require some skin to be removed, this is done just before the incisions are closed. A brow lift can be combined with aneyelid lift to alleviate pressure on the eyes by removing excess skin on the eyelid itself.
If your brow has shifted downward and contributes to a broody appearance that doesn’t match your personality, you may be a candidate for a brow lift at Stein Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Stein will really listen to your concerns and goals for your aesthetic outcomes. He does not rush through your appointment or pressure you to agree to treatments that won’t help you. We consistently hear from our patients how comfortable they are with Dr. Stein because they feel heard, understood, and cared for. So your brow lift is in good hands.
What is Brow Lift Surgery Like?
Your brow lift is performed in the Stein Plastic Surgery state-of-the-artaccredited surgical suite on an outpatient basis. Your treatment plan will include the type of incision as well as any adjustments made to your eyebrows and eyelids. Patients who do not need excess skin removed may have the endoscopic technique, which involves a series of small incisions in the hairline to allow special tools to anchor the underlying structures into position. Patients having skin removed may need a coronal incision from ear to ear over the top of the head. Afterward, you will awaken with bandages around your head, and we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to take home with you. You should be ready to return to work in 10-14 days.
What Results Can I Expect From My Brow Lift?
The results of your brow lift surgery are instantly noticeable, though some swelling and bruising may be visible. As swelling heals, your brow will appear lifted, smooth, and your eyes more alert and refreshed. It is important to stay patient as you recover because it can take up to 6 months for your tissues to settle fully. Maintaining sun protection with consistent sunscreen usage and healthy living habits may help extend your pleasing and attractive results. With Dr. Stein’s help, a new you awaits!
Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
