WHY SHOULD I OPT FOR A BROW LIFT?

If you feel the need to correct sagging brows, eliminate or reduce wrinkles or improve the position of your eyebrows, a brow lift may be a viable option for you. To discuss important aspects related to a potential surgical intervention designed to address all these drawbacks in a successful manner, schedule an initial appointment with the gifted facial plastic surgeons at Beau Visage Center. Our talented surgeons strive to offer the best cosmetic treatments designed to enhance your natural beauty and trigger your complete satisfaction.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PERFECT BROW LIFT

A brow lift or forehead lift represents a very simple procedure designed to help patients achieve a rested, younger, beautiful appearance. As we grow older, our skin loses its natural elasticity and may start sagging. You can find the fastest, most effective solution to this problem by simply contacting our team of plastic surgeons in Austin.

A brow lift can correct this problem, while also minimizing the wrinkles developed horizontally around the forehead, between the patient’s eyes or around the nose bridge. Moreover, a brow lift can reduce or eliminate the unpleasant creases that may form between eyebrows, raise aging, sagging brows and reposition the eyebrows to ensure a rested, natural, youthful look.

FACTORS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER BEFORE UNDERGOING BROW LIFT SURGERY

You may be wondering about the main factors that you need to consider before undergoing a brow lift. Anesthesia represents the first step; your surgeon will administer medication that will ensure your comfort during the entire process. Next, he will make an incision using a special instrument such as an endoscope, which is basically a small, thin tube that has a camera attached at its end used to adjust muscle and tissue beneath the patient’s skin. Forehead furrows and creases are corrected by eliminating the source of these unaesthetic problems.

Brow incisions can be closed using a great variety of products, including absorbable sutures, skin adhesive, special clips or surgical tape. Dr. Bittar will come up with the best option for you and will also offer you a few valuable instructions related to the pre and post op-care. In some cases, we may decide to loosely wrap your head after the surgery to minimize bruising and swelling. We may also insert a thin tube to drain excess fluid that could collect under your skin after the surgical procedure. Most patients are advised to keep their head in an elevated position, avoid intense physical activity for a certain period of time and make sure extremely cold or hot items are kept far away from the surgical site. Recovery time may vary a great deal, based on your age and general state of health. However, general healing may take up to 2 weeks. After 14 days, your surgeon may decide to remove sutures or clips. Most people need to take at least 2 weeks off of work to focus on their recovery.

All in all, this simple facial plastic surgery procedure can provide ideal results when you rely on our plastic surgeons in Austin and follow our post-op and pre-operative instructions.
