Brow Lift Surgery
Ben Light is skilled at performing brow lift surgery to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead. This surgery is often performed with facelift surgery and eyelid surgery for complete facial rejuvenation. Some patients may be interested in non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to smooth and rejuvenate the brow. Both traditional and endoscopic brow lift surgery are offered at Dr. Light’s practice in Decatur, Alabama.
The Brow lift Procedure
Traditional brow lift surgery is performed by making an incision across the top of the patient’s forehead, within the hairline. Dr. Light places incisions so that the resulting scars will be hidden. The brow muscles are then tightened and excess skin and tissues are reduced. The remaining skin on the forehead is “lifted” by pulling it taut so that wrinkles are smoothed away and the position of the eyebrows is elevated.
Endoscopic brow lift surgery is performed for younger patients who have wrinkles and furrows but do not have a large amount of excess skin. This procedure requires only a few small incisions to complete. Using specialized surgical instruments, Dr. Light adjusts the underlying muscles that cause the brow to become furrowed. Next, he repositions the skin in order to lift the eyebrows and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
The lines on a patients forehead and deep furrows between the eyelids can make them appear tired, sad, or angry even whey they are not. By reducing these signs of aging, a brow lift surgery can restore a smooth, vibrant, and youthful look.Dr. Ben Light, M.D.
Brow lift Benefits
Both traditional and endoscopic brow lift surgery provide long-lasting results. The lines on the forehead and deep furrows between the eyelids can make patients appear tired, sad, or angry even whey they are not. By reducing or eliminating these signs of aging, brow lift surgery can restore a smooth, vibrant, and youthful look.
The recovery period for traditional brow lift surgery usually lasts seven to ten days. Endoscopic brow lift patients can possibly even return to work much sooner. Side effects for both procedures can include some numbness, bruising, and soreness, but symptoms seldom last more than a few days. Medication will be prescribed to alleviate any pain.
