A brow lift is the ideal option for addressing sagging, wrinkles, and folds that have formed on the brow and forehead. At Chegar Facial Plastic Surgery in Indianapolis, we offer the brow lift procedure to help combat the noticeable signs of aging and help maintain the smooth and youthful appearance of the brow.
What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, is the procedure of choice to address sagging, wrinkles, and folds on the brow and forehead. Depending on the anatomy of your forehead and hair pattern, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Burke Chegar uses one of several different brow lift techniques to restore a more youthful look to the upper face.
The most common method is the endoscopic brow lift, used for its less invasive approach through small incisions just behind the hairline. Sometimes, an open technique called a trichophytic brow lift is necessary when extra skin needs to be removed along with elevating the brow.
For men who have a very high hairline or no hair, the incision can be hidden if a natural forehead crease or within the eyebrow itself (indirect and direct brow lift).
The Benefits of a Brow Lift
Dr. Chegar’s goal with brow lift is to create a natural, rejuvenated appearance to the forehead, brow and upper eyes. In addition, the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows can be surgically weakened during a brow lift to smooth the appearance in this area, similar to the effects of a Botox® Cosmetic injection. For optimal rejuvenation, brow lift is sometimes combined with blepharoplasty if the upper eyelids have excessive skin or bulging fat pads.
There may be some swelling and bruising around the area following your brow lift in Indianapolis. Mild pain and discomfort are to be expected, but these issues should only last for the first two days of recovery and can be easily managed through medication. Bruising and swelling may also occur during this period. Most patients need around two to three weeks to fully recover. It takes around 6 months to see the final results.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?
Although sometimes not as obvious as sagging cheeks and neck, aging effects on the upper part of the face have a dramatic effect on one’s appearance. As the skin and muscles of the forehead lose their natural support, the eyebrow begins to descend toward the eyes. This creates a tired or even angry look to the entire face.
For individuals who have been affected by a permanent facial paralysis, a brow lift can be used to restore symmetry to the upper part of the face and to help improve peripheral vision caused by sagging forehead skin. Insurance may cover surgical costs related to such conditions and can be verified beforehand.
Cost of a Brow Lift
The cost of your brow lift will depend on the techniques used and other factors. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chegar can go over pricing as well as the payment options available to you for your brow lift in Indianapolis.
