In Baltimore, facial rejuvenation often includes a brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, for men and women. That’s because horizontal creases along the forehead and furrows between the brows can cause you to appear angry, sad, tired, or older than you really are. Weight fluctuation, sun damage, and genetics can further intensify the appearance of these visible signs of aging.
At our Maryland plastic surgery practice, Dr. Dean Kane utilizes the brow lift procedure to diminish the visibility of wrinkles and the appearance of a drooping forehead and eyebrows. By redefining the natural eyebrow arch, smoothing the forehead and removing excess skin, brow lift surgery can create a more rested, youthful appearance that makes patients look years and in some cases decades younger.
To find out more about this popular procedure Maryland facelift patients often add to their surgical plan, request a consultation with Dr. Kane. He offers residents of Baltimore a variety of facial rejuvenation procedures and he can help you choose what’s right for you. In addition to surgical options, such as eyelid surgery, you may decide to combine a forehead lift with Restylane® and other filler injections or BOTOX® Cosmetic for more comprehensive results.
Brow Lift in Baltimore with Dr. Kane
Dr. Kane offers the full-range of brow lift techniques for his patients. Brow lift surgery may be performed in a variety of ways. The endoscopic brow lift is usually chosen for younger patients who are just beginning to develop problematic wrinkles. During the endoscopic procedure, an endoscope (telescopic lighted tube) is inserted through a series of small incisions along the hairline and the skin and underlying muscles are repositioned using specialized tools. The skin is lifted creating a elevated but natural brow curve.
The traditional brow lift uses a short incision at the top of the forehead just inside the hairline. Through this opening, your skin and muscles are pulled up to a more youthful position and fixed in place.
After Your Brow Lift
Following brow lift surgery, you can expect mild to moderate discomfort that can be controlled with either prescription or over-the-counter medication. Most people find they can discontinue medication after just a few days. You may experience tenderness and some light swelling for several days.
People who undergo a brow lift procedure by itself can usually return to work in a few days. If you choose to have a brow lift in combination with other facial rejuvenation surgery in Baltimore, you’ll probably want to plan to take a couple weeks off from your normal routine.
