What are the benefits of a brow lift?
Our Austin forehead lift is designed to combat the signs of aging by reducing frown or worry lines for a smooth, more youthful appearance. Brow lifts can also be used to raise naturally low or heavy brows. Most brow lifts result in increased confidence and heightened self-image and self-esteem.
Are the results of a brow lift long-lasting?
While the aging process will continue after brow lift surgery, patients will continue to appear younger than their actual age. Some patients will opt to have a second surgery, but this will not be necessary until 10 to 15 years from the initial brow lift.
What are the risks and side effects of a brow lift?
Complications with brow lift surgery are extremely rare, and most can be corrected with surgery. Possible complications and risks include nerve damage that can lead to uncontrollable muscle functions, scarring, hair loss, and loss of feeling in the forehead. As with any surgery, infection is a risk. Smokers have a higher risk of complications during the skin healing process.
How long does a brow lift procedure take?
The brow lift procedure generally lasts one to two hours. Depending on needs and desires of patients, the timeframe can vary.
What type of anesthesia is used in a brow lift?
Depending on your preference, either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation may be used. Dr. Leeman has performed many brow lift surgeries under local anesthesia with sedation.
Is there scarring, swelling or pain after a brow lift?
Temporary discomfort and swelling after a brow lift are normal. This should subside after a few days. Dr. Leeman strategically places incisions along the hairline or in natural facial folds so that scars are not visible once you are fully healed.
