Brow lift (forehead lift) is an operation to raise drooping eyebrows. People who request upper eyelid lifts sometimes also need to have their brows lifted in order to restore a youthful look. Younger adults who have a naturally low brow or deep forehead lines may also benefit from a brow lift.
Patient 1: Before and after endoscopic browlift and upper blepharoplasties.
There are several techniques for brow lift surgery. In most cases, the operation can be carried out endoscopically. This means that the surgery is done with the aid of a camera passed through several short incisions hidden in the scalp. This produces minimal scarring and numbness and promotes rapid recovery. Dr. Pugash will recommend a technique that takes into account the position of your eyebrows, the amount of excess upper eyelid skin, and the height of your hairline.
Brow lift, whatever the technique, also allows the surgeon to weaken the action of the muscles that produce the frown lines between the eyebrows.
Brow lift surgery is usually carried out as an outpatient procedure. Potential complications include reactions to the anesthetic, infection, bleeding, poor scars, hair loss, nerve damage, and an unsatisfactory aesthetic result.
Bruising usually clears after about two weeks. At this time, most of Dr. Pugash’s Vancouver forehead lift patients can return to social activities and non-strenuous work.
Dr. Pugash continues to monitor his patients for several months after their brow lift procedures to ensure that the recovery is proceeding smoothly. For this reason he schedules several post-operative appointments at his cosmetic surgery offices.
Every patient who comes to Dr. Pugash’s offices has a different set of aesthetic needs, desires and preferences. This is why Dr. Pugash offers a wide array of treatments that can be customized for each patient. Individuals who seek Dr. Pugash’s surgical help frequently include facelift, brow lift, facial implants and otoplasty patients.
