No one is immune to the progression of time… but aging well while looking gracefully appropriate is possible.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift, also referred to as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure aimed at addressing wrinkles, creases, furrows, and signs of aging in the eyebrow and upper face area. As people age, the tissues around the eyebrows and forehead tend to weaken and lose elasticity, resulting in saggy skin and the formation of wrinkles and creases. This can give the face a tired or stressed appearance.
When performed correctly, an endoscopic brow lift can effectively rejuvenate these facial regions, yielding a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Matthew White, an experienced facial plastic surgeon, offers patients the opportunity to achieve youthful, revitalized skin. During your consultation for brow lift surgery in NYC, Dr. White will discuss your goals and assess your skin to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific needs.
The endoscopic brow lift procedure can provide significant aesthetic improvement in the upper area of the face.
Brow lift surgery can offer the following benefits:
- Youthful results without looking overdone
- Can take up to 10 years off the face
- Long-lasting results
- Smoothes deep lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and more
- Can be performed with other procedures for a more comprehensive makeover
- Can be a great solution for men and women of all ages
- Procedure is performed endoscopically (using small instruments and a tiny internal camera) to allow for smaller incisions and less recovery time
Am I a candidate for a brow lift?
During your initial consultation, Dr. White will determine whether you are a good candidate for brow lift surgery in NYC. If you are unhappy with your appearance and wish to rejuvenate the skin on your forehead area, you may find a brow lift helps you reach your aesthetic goals. Dr. White stresses, however, that you should have realistic expectations, as the procedure affects every patient differently.
In general, he may recommend this procedure if you possess:
- Low or sagging eyebrows
- A perpetually sad or unhappy expression
- Deep forehead creases
- Frown lines
- Furrows between the eyebrows
- Excess skin that droops over your eyes
If you suffer from any of the above telltale signs of aging and you want to rejuvenate the skin on your forehead and around your eyes for a more youthful expression, a brow lift may help you achieve your cosmetic goals. To confirm your candidacy and begin planning your procedure, we invite you to schedule your consultation with Dr. White today.
Brow Lift:Your Consultation
The brow lift is a nuanced procedure that can be tailored to address each patient’s unique signs of aging and cosmetic goals. To begin planning your custom surgery, your first step will be to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. White. During that meeting, he will outline all of your options for your brow lift, and he’ll guide you in making the surgical decisions that will ensure a safe procedure and the precise aesthetic outcome you desire.
The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift procedures are typically performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. White usually performs the surgery utilizing a local anesthetic and a sedative, allowing you to rest comfortably while he begins the operation. Depending on your signs of aging and cosmetic goals, he will utilize one of two approaches.
The first approach is the endoscopic brow lift. Utilizing an endoscope to work through very small incisions that are made through the hairline, incisions will be hidden and any residual scarring will be virtually undetectable. Using the endoscope, Dr. White will lift your forehead skin, removing excess tissue and tightening loose muscles. The eyebrows are typically lifted to a higher position as well, ultimately revealing a smooth, fresh-looking appearance.
The second approach is the traditional brow lift. This is a more intensive surgery that involves making a single long incision across the forehead, hidden within the hairline. Through that extensive opening, Dr. White can lift the skin to smooth wrinkles and move the brows to a more youthful position. In general, this approach is reserved for patients who need to address more advanced wrinkles and sagging skin, while an endoscopic approach is often used to treat earlier signs of aging.
What Our Patients Are Saying
The results were fantastic, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking!
Brow Lift Recovery
Following your procedure, it is normal to experience some swelling and bruising, which should dissipate over the course of the first week. It is important that you keep your head elevated as you rest for the first couple weeks, as this will promote a healthy recovery. You should also avoid working out and other strenuous activities as this can prolong the healing process. Sutures are typically removed one to two weeks following surgery. We have found that patients feel presentable and ready to resume normal daily routines after about seven to ten days. As one of the top providers of the brow lift in NYC, Dr. Matthew White stays in close communication with his patients to ensure that healing is proceeding smoothly.
During your initial brow lift consultation, Dr. White will thoroughly explain the procedure and answer all of your questions. He will work with you to customize a treatment plan that helps you achieve your goals.
Risks associated with a brow lift
When undergoing any plastic surgery, there is always a chance of complications. It is important to be aware of these risks ahead of time, so you can be sure the surgeon you choose takes the appropriate precautions. With that said, the most common complications and risks associated with a brow lift are:
- A negative reaction to the anesthesia
- An infection
- Hair loss near the incision
- Reduced ability to move the forehead muscles after surgery
- Unsightly scarring
When performing a brow lift, Dr. White is always acutely aware of the potential risks and does everything within his power to prevent them. Thanks to his advanced surgical technique, brow lift complications are extremely rare in his office, and his clients routinely emerge from surgery completely safe and healthy, with virtually invisible scars and forehead muscles that move with ease.
