Genetics, natural aging and environmental factors can all contribute to undesirable wrinkles in the forehead region. A brow lift surgery is a subtle and effective way to diminish drooping eyebrows, forehead wrinkles and furrows between the eyes.
Also called a forehead lift, this procedure can be custom-tailored to meet your facial rejuvenation goals. Torrance plastic surgeon Dr. Sherif Khattab is a board certified with years of experience performing brow lift surgies in Torrance. He routinely performs brow lift surgery in conjunction with other surgical cosmetic procedures such as a face lift to enhance final results.
Brow lift surgery is most often used to reverse natural signs of facial aging in patients 40-60 years of age. Younger adults who feel self-conscious about premature facial aging due to stress or genetics may also benefit from a brow lift.
If you have frown lines between your eyebrows, deep forehead wrinkles or drooping eyebrows, you may be a potential candidate for a brow lift. Additionally, the best candidates are non-smoking, in good health and possess realistic expectations.
The consultation: During a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Khattab, he will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for brow lift surgery. A brow lift is a major surgical procedure, so please come prepared to discuss factors such as your medical history, current medications and cosmetic goals.
Surgery: Brow lift surgery can be performed in one of two ways – using a traditional coronal incision or through endoscopic technology. In both techniques, the underlying tissue of your forehead will be readjusted and your skin will be tightly lifted to smooth out deep forehead wrinkles. Once the procedure is complete, incisions will be secured with fine sutures.
Recovery: Ensuring that you have a safe and smooth recovery is one of Dr. Khattab’s primary goals. When you wake up from surgery, it is likely that you will experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising. A combination of elevation, cold compresses and pain medication will be available to help you manage these temporary side effects. Normal recovery time is about 7-10 days, but you should avoid more strenuous activities for 3-6 weeks.
Results: The final results of your surgery will become gradually apparent as bruising and swelling resolves over the course of a few weeks. You can anticipate an all around smoother, more youthful appearance. Implementing a healthy diet and exercise routine, as well as avoiding prolonged sun exposure will increase the probability of long-lasting results.
