WHAT IS A BROW LIFT OR FOREHEAD LIFT?
A forehead lift or “brow lift” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. The procedure corrects drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
In a forehead lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines. You and Dr. Rubbani will decide what technique is best. Thermage® in combination with Botox® can also provide you with a non-surgical option if you are looking for a natural lift.
HOW IS THE BROW LIFT & FOREHEAD LIFT DONE?
The procedure is done at our office in our surgical suite under local anesthesia and oral sedation. Dr. Rubbani makes a meticulously-measured incision within the hairline of the temples and/or frontal hairline. The location of the incisions is based on the patient’s goals, anatomy and other procedures they may be having done in conjunction with the lift.
The muscle is altered and excess tissue removed. Dr. Rubbani utilizes the same delicate detail and precision to close the incision as she does in her ocular surgeries to minimize noticeable scarring. We also provide our patients with detailed information for minimizing downtime with post-care guidance and pre-surgical supplementation and care.
Although you should be up and about in a day or two, plan on taking it easy for at least the first week after surgery. You should be able to shower and shampoo your hair within two days, or as soon as the bandage is removed.
Most patients are back to work or school in a week to 10 days. Vigorous physical activity should be limited for several weeks, including jogging, bending, heavy housework, sex, or any activity that increases your blood pressure. Prolonged exposure to heat or sun should be limited for several months.
