As you age, wrinkle lines naturally begin to develop on the forehead. You may even notice frown lines between your eyebrows which make you appear to be angry or agitated. These lines are natural signs of aging, but many people still want to rid their face of these unsightly lines that have changed their appearance.
If these lines bother you, there is something you can do about it. A brow lift, which is also known as a forehead lift, reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead with a single surgical procedure. This procedure also reduces or removes those that occur on the bridge of the nose and between the eyes.
The cosmetic surgeons at Charleston Aesthetics can perform a brow lift, or forehead lift, by surgically raising sagging brows that are hooding the upper eyelids, and placing them upward in an alert and youthful position. This procedure tightens the soft tissues of the forehead and restores your face to show a more youthful contour on the forehead and around the upper eyelids and eyebrows.
An eyebrow lift (forehead lift) appeals to so many people because it’s a relatively quick procedure that delivers dramatic results. After the procedure, you can expect some residual swelling and bruising. Your forehead may be taped and it may be loosely wrapped to secure the surgical sites. Some patients need a thin tube to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect under the skin, but this is minor. Patients are instructed to keep their head elevated and rest while they heal from the procedure. You may have specific instructions based on your personal needs, but this will be something you discuss with your surgeon.
