As you age, you might notice more laxity in the skin on your forehead or an increase in the sagging of your eyebrows and eyelids. While this is normal and a part of the natural aging process, it might not properly reflect how you feel inside or how you wish to look. Fortunately, facial plastic surgery procedures like brow lifts can work wonders to restore your youthfulness, enhance the overall appearance of your face, and give you a boost of confidence.
At Charles Chalekson, MD, Inc, our board-certified plastic surgeon, and exceptional medical team will utilize an honest and individualized approach to ensure you look and feel your best. Reach out to schedule a consultation to learn more about the benefits and process of a brow lift in San Luis Obispo County.
The lower position of the brows and eyelids that often comes with aging can make you appear older than you are, as well as angry or tired. A brow lift or forehead lift is a surgical procedure for men and women that lifts the skin on the forehead and helps reduce this and other concerns such as deep lines and wrinkles. Additionally, a brow lift in San Luis Obispo County can sometimes improve cosmetic concerns that are not associated with aging, such as hooded eyelids and high foreheads.
It is important to note that, unlike a complete facelift, a forehead lift only addresses the upper portion of the face and does not target the jawline, midface, or neck. Additionally, those with more advanced drooping of the eyelids may benefit from a blepharoplasty or eyelid lift in combination with a brow lift.
During your consultation with Dr. Chalekson, he will examine your unique qualities, listen to your needs, and recommend the best solution to deliver optimal results. You might be a suitable candidate for a brow lift if you have:
Other factors that will play a role in your candidacy include overall physical health, having realistic expectations of surgical results, and whether or not you are a smoker.
There are several different techniques that might be used to perform a brow or forehead lift. The procedure can frequently be performed through an upper eyelid incision which can also be performed with an upper eyelid lift [blepharoplasty]. Other methods include incisions within the scalp or scalp edge. The surgical techniques that are utilized for your San Luis Obispo County forehead and/or brow lift will depend on your aesthetic needs and facial anatomy.
Like any other surgical treatment, the brow lift procedure requires appropriate time to heal. During this period, you will probably notice some swelling and bruising that will typically begin to diminish after a week. Maintaining an elevated face even when sleeping can help reduce the swelling further.
It is important to arrange for appropriate time to rest and recover. This might include having someone to help you around the house with daily tasks for the first few days. You should also avoid strenuous activity and exercise until you are cleared to do so. Our team will schedule follow-up visits to ensure you are healing properly.
