Reverse Time with a Brow Lift

A brow lift, also commonly known as the forehead lift or “browplasty,” is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the upper portion of the face, including the forehead, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. The goal of the brow lift is to create a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Dr. Derek Steinbacher of Guilford, Connecticut, is pleased to offer this and many other facial cosmetic surgeries for patients.

How is the brow lift performed?

There are different techniques and modalities that can be used to perform a brow lift. The type of technique that will be used will depend on the specific goals and concerns of the patient. In some cases, the brow lift can be performed using endoscopic technology. This procedure is less invasive than traditional brow lift surgery and may have a shorter recovery period. An approach via the hairline is also considered and can allow the forehead wrinkles and #11 to be addressed.  Choosing the technique most appropriate for your needs is done with the assistance of Dr. Steinbacher and his team.

Brow lifts can be performed as an outpatient procedure or with an overnight stay in the hospital. The length of this surgery will depend on the technique used; it usually takes about one to two hours to complete.

What can I expect after my procedure?

After a brow lift, patients will need to wear a headband or other type of garment to support the forehead and eyebrows. That will reduce swelling, and most patients can return to their normal activities within one week after surgery. It can take several weeks for all the swelling and bruising to resolve.

How long will the results from a browplasty last?

The results of a brow lift are typically long-lasting. However, it is critical to keep in mind that the aging process will continue and that additional procedures may be necessary in the future to maintain the results of the brow lift.
