Are you tired of looking exhausted? Its time to start looking and feeling more beautiful! A browlift can give you a more refreshed and relaxed appearance, virtually eliminating the weary look often caused by frown lines, droopy eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. Deep frown lines and “lowbrow” can often be hereditary traits. They may simply be caused by the natural aging process, stress, or overuse of the muscles in this area of your face. Not to worry. A browlift can gently stretch and raise the forehead skin and eyebrows to correct wrinkles and remove “droopy” eyebrows, leaving a more pleasant and youthful appearance for several years to come.
You may benefit from a browlift if you are troubled by or concerned about drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles or excess skin on the upper eyelids. A browlift, also known as a forehead lift or endobrow lift, can cosmetically correct the loose or wrinkled skin in the forehead, eyebrows and upper eyelids.
A browlift is a common cosmetic surgery that can be performed via a traditional open technique or endoscopically. In the traditional method, as described above, excess forehead skin is stretched upwards, consequently raising the upper facial features including the eyebrows, upper eyelids and forehead. This procedure can also be performed via an endoscopic lift, which is a less invasive surgery that minimizes the incisions. A browlift is often combined with eyelid surgery as droopy eyebrows often contribute to droopy eyelids.
In addition to the cosmetic benefits, a browlift is also associated with reduced migraine headaches. A study out of Case Western Reserve University in Ohio has shown that a browlift significantly reduces the frequency, duration and intensity of migraine headaches. When the trigger sites are surgically deactivated, there is a 90 per cent improvement in migraine symptoms.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Jugenburg will give you specific instructions to enable minimal recovery time from a browlift. As with any cosmetic surgery, there will be a brief period of recovery. Your recovery time will also vary based on whether you have traditional browlift or endoscopic surgery.
After browlift surgery you will have a tight bandage around your forehead to minimize complications and to keep the forehead skin in its new place while it heals. You will also be asked to avoid any strenuous physical activities for two weeks. Complications are uncommon but you will experience bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort; these are most noticeable after the first day of surgery. These side effects will diminish in time and we are confident that you will be very pleased with the final results of your surgery.
A browlift can produce incredible results, especially when combined with eyelid surgery or a facelift, for a total facial rejuvenation. Many patients are amazed by the enhancement to their overall appearance and credit the surgery with an improvement in their overall self-confidence and general wellbeing.
With regards to browlifts, there are some special considerations to take into account. These include irritation of the nerve that provides sensation to the forehead and asymmetry between the two sides. These complications are rare and usually resolve in the short-term. Dr. Jugenburg will take all of the necessary precautions to minimize any risks associated with the surgery. If there should be a less than desirable result, we have the medical expertise, knowledge, and technology to correct the issue.
