Wrinkles and lines develop naturally on the forehead as we age due to constant muscle movement, making a person appear older than they would like. In addition, those little vertical lines between the eyebrows, or horizontal lines across the forehead, can cause an individual to appear stressed, angry, or simply unapproachable and unpleasant.
Fortunately, an experienced plastic surgeon who undertakes brow lift surgery can accomplish a smooth, fresh-faced, more youthful appearance. Removing the deep creases or wrinkles on the forehead, and repositioning the brow line to its ideal position can easily take years of a person’s face.
Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, provides brow lift to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding locations.
Men and women over the age of 40 years can usually see signs of aging appear on the face. The forehead is typically one of the first places where wrinkles and lines appear due to excessive muscle motion. Brow lift plastic surgery can mitigate various cosmetic flaws on the upper third part of the face. The many advantages of brow lift surgery include the following:
- Enhanced confidence and self-esteem
- Rejuvenated facial appearance
- A more approachable and pleasant appearance
- More relaxed forehead muscles
- Can use in combination with other treatments, such as eyelid surgery or a facelift
- Endoscopic brow lift leads to minimal side effects and rapid recovery
- Beautiful, sustainable outcomes that last for up to ten years or more
- Inconspicuous incisions and minimal scarring
- Natural-looking outcomes
- Eyebrow position more suited to the face
- Few possible risks or complications
- Address sagging or uneven eyebrows
When are the final results apparent?
Patients will notice a significant reduction in inflammation, bruising, or other visible side effects a few weeks after the brow lift surgery. The outcomes will be much more visible at this time. Besides looking better, patients will also feel better and more like themselves. After the patient has healed completely, they will enjoy their new, rejuvenated, and refreshed appearance.
The forehead will appear wrinkle free and naturally smooth, and the repositioned eyebrows will enable the face to look brighter and more attractive. As the incisions are placed behind the hair line, there will be no noticeable scarring once the healing is complete.
Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones will discuss the pros and cons of surgical and non-surgical brow lift techniques to help the patient make the right choice.
Long-Term Outlook after Brow Lift Surgery
The effects that a person can expect will depend on the surgery that they undergo, but typically include:
Traditional or limited incision non-endoscopic brow lift
After this procedure, the inflammation may take a few months to resolve. The scarring will be permanent but should fade over time. The improvements to scars may take nearly one year or so.
Suture brow lift (thread lift)
The patient may experience some pain, but it generally settles within 24 hours. There have been a few reports of more severe pain following the surgery. There may be slight inflammation and bruising for four to ten days.
It is important to remember that a brow lift does not alter the fundamental facial appearance and cannot halt the process of aging. While the outcomes are permanent, the skin will continually age.
Healthy lifestyle habits as well as taking steps to minimize sun exposure can help maintain the outcomes of the surgery. The patient can expect the brow and forehead to appear tauter and less lined after this procedure.
