Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Surgery
Drooping eyebrows. Sad, tired or angry look. Small or constricted eyes. Horizontal forehead wrinkles.
How a Brow Lift Fixes the Problem:
Repositioning the eyebrows with a brow lift opens the eyes and provides for a more youthful, awake appearance. The eyebrows, Dr. Roberts explains, are like the picture frames of the eyes. When we are young, the brows are above the orbital bone. With aging, the brows droop, closing down and constricting the eyes. Repositioning the eyebrows back to their youthful position opens up the eyes, leading to a youthful, healthy awake appearance.
Several techniques for brow lifting are available and the technique used depends on several anatomic factors. Dr. Roberts uses the endoscopic technique almost exclusively. The endoscopic technique is less invasive than traditional brow lift surgery, with smaller incisions and scars, and a more rapid recovery.
What to Expect:
The brow lift procedure is done under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, and you can go home shortly after surgery is completed. A small drain is placed which is removed the morning after surgery. This drain helps minimize swelling and speeds up recovery. A pressure dressing is also placed which is removed the next morning. Sutures or staples close the incision and are removed at 1 week. Activity should be limited for 1 week. Bruising and swelling are usually resolved by 7 days.
Going to Dr. Roberts was the smartest thing I ever did. He was very kind and patient with me and I will always be grateful for his amazing talent.
I am thrilled with the results and feel great about my apperance! I highly recommend Dr. Roberts to anyone considering cosmetic enhancement.
What You Will Notice:
By the end of the first week, you will see a more awake looking you, with higher eyebrows and more open eyes. By the end of the first month, as swelling has resolved, the brow settles into its new position and looks more natural.
