Brow Lift / Forehead Lift

Brow lift can help eliminate these age-related changes or individual characteristics. As we age, the deep creases at the bridge of the nose and the heavy eyebrow gaze make the face look tired and sad. These changes are the result of active eyebrow mimicry and gravity acting on the forehead skin, resulting in the following problems:

  • Drooping eyebrows.
  • Creation of horizontal and vertical wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
  • Wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes.
  • The appearance of noticeable excess skin on the upper eyelids.

In some cases, low eyebrows and the resulting “frown” are individual features of a person’s facial structure.

It is a surgery that can correct drooping eyebrows, smooth out forehead lines and wrinkles, thereby making the upper part of the face look more youthful and attractive.

A brow lift helps to maintain an open, youthful look, get rid of wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows, and achieve an attractive appearance by restoring elasticity and firmness to the skin in this area. A brow lift is suitable for patients of all ages.

Brow Lift Technique

The board-certified doctors at Boris Cosmetic use minimally invasive techniques for brow lift where the incision is hidden just behind the hairline. Through these cuts, resorbable threads are inserted with special instruments, which pull the skin taut and fix it in a new position, ensuring its smoothing and improving the patient’s appearance.

Another method used by Boris Cosmetic doctors is endoscopic. It is performed using tiny cameras called endoscopes, without large incisions and leaving no trace. In endoscopic brow lift surgery, small incisions are made at several different points on the scalp. With this method, the scarring that occurs with older methods is completely prevented, and the healing process is shortened due to fewer problems with swelling.

Advantages of Brow Lifting

Quick rehabilitation and a small number of complications can be attributed to the undeniable advantages of the procedure. At the same time, as a result of this procedure, the patient completely gets rid of wrinkles, a “tired face,” overhanging skin over the eyes, and a gloomy look.

Compared to Botox, a brow lift is good because it does not require repeating the process after some time, but allows you to achieve a result that lasts for years. In addition, eyebrows will not look “frozen” as they do after Botox but will be able to convey emotion and look natural.

Recovery After a Brow Lift

After surgery, the patient remains under observation in the hospital until the next morning. For the first few days, it is necessary to wear a special compression bandage. During this period, the patient may experience some discomfort and a feeling of “tightness”. Swelling and bruising will disappear within 7-9 days after surgery. To make rehabilitation faster and easier, special procedures may be recommended to the patient.

The duration of rehabilitation depends on the extent of the surgery and the brow lift technique chosen. Recovery can last from 7 days to 3 weeks. In the first few days after forehead and brow lift you must be careful: do not bend or turn your head sharply, it is necessary to follow a gentle regime and exclude physical activities.
