Over time and with weakening of the forehead muscles, the eyebrows may drop over the eyes and lose their aesthetic appeal. Sometimes transverse forehead wrinkles may be overly apparent and disturbing in their appearance. Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport may be effective in helping reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles. Brow lift surgery is helps to raise droopy lowered eyebrows and is done either with small incisions in the scalp or forehead.
Brow Lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia so you will be asleep during the entire surgery. This surgery is performed usually as an outpatient procedure, but sometimes patients stay overnight for observation. Out-of-town patients may stay in one of our overnight recovery suites with a nurse that is available. The surgery itself generally takes 2-3 hours, and may be longer depending on whether there are any additional procedures being performed . After your surgery, you will be able to go home or stay in the overnight facility with office follow-up soon thereafter. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for about a week or two after surgery, but most patients can usually return to work soon thereafter.
During your consultation, Dr. Benjamin J. Cousins M.D. will examine you, discuss your specific aesthetic goals, provide recommendations and answer any and all questions you may have.
