Brow Lift Tallahassee
If you have expression lines or other signs of aging in the forehead and brow region which you find bothersome, a brow lift (also called a forehead lift) may be right for you. Plastic surgeons Dr. Harper, Dr. Paredes & Dr. Rawlings offer the brow lift to Tallahassee, Dothan, Thomasville, Destin, Panama City & Valdosta patients in order to:
- Minimize the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
- Improve what are commonly referred to as frown lines
- Reposition a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
- Raise the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position
A brow lift is designed to improve all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved tone in facial skin and underlying muscle.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift surgery can be performed through multiple limited incisions hidden within the hairline or single longer scalp incision or through a single incision in the natural crease of each upper eyelid. Once tissues have been adjusted as needed, incisions are closed with sutures.
Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic offers eyelid lifts to patients in the area, including patients from Tallahassee, Dothan, Thomasville, Valdosta, Destin & Panama City. Plastic surgeons, Dr. Harper, Dr. Paredes & Dr. Rawlings say that the results of a brow lift may be enhanced through laser resurfacing or a chemical peel that can further improve skin tone and surface appearance.
When there is significant excess skin in the forehead, an alternate technique using a wide incision across the top of the scalp or over the brow hair may be recommended.
Recovery and Healing
It is best to follow our plastic surgeons’ post-surgical care directions as closely as possible during forehead lift recovery. This minimizes the chance of complications, ensures the shortest-possible downtime, and maintains the quality of results.
Time off from work will be required during the healing process, and patients must avoid any physically taxing activities. Keeping one’s head elevated is recommended, and cold compresses can be used to help resolve bruising and swelling.
Our plastic surgeons wish to remind you that swelling should improve in 2-4 weeks. Most results become visible within 1-2 months. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for up to 1 year.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost?
The cost of a forehead lift procedure depends on a variety of factors. The techniques employed, the total surgical time, and the anesthesia administered all impact the price of brow lift surgery.
