The brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a commonly performed facial rejuvenation surgery that can be conducted as an independent technique or performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation treatments, including a blepharoplasty and a facelift.
With a coronary brow lift, you can reverse the signs of aging and tighten the soft forehead tissues, resulting in restored youthful contours of your eyebrows, upper eyelids, and forehead skin.
Here are the primary reasons why you may consider getting a coronal brow lift:
• You have sagging eyebrows or a lowered eyebrow position resulting in a grumpy, tired, and sad appearance.• You can notice furrows or frown lines between your eyebrows or across your nose top.• You have deep creases visible across your forehead.• You have excess fatty tissue or skin bulging over the eyes.
During the coronal brow lift, Dr. George Pope will identify the least visible location to make the incision and trim your hair along the line where the incision will be made. After the hair has been trimmed along the incision line, Dr. Pope will use a scalpel to make the incision.
In a coronal brow lift, the incision typically stretches from one end of the ear to the other. This incision is generally hidden in your scalp or along your hairline. You can talk to Dr. Pope during a consultation to clarify any doubts you have regarding the incision and how it will be hidden before the surgery begins.
The forehead skin will then be lifted and the excess tissue will be removed. In certain cases, Dr. Pope may reposition specific muscles or even decide to remove them altogether for the best results. The remaining excess skin will be trimmed and the incision will be sutured.
The coronal brow lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis with the administration of general anesthesia. The time it takes to execute the surgery varies from patient to patient and depends on your individual needs. Dr. Pope may close your incisions with staples or sutures. These are usually removed a week after the surgery.
Very little or no pain is experienced by patients when undergoing the procedure. You may, however, experience minor discomfort and/or a feeling of tightness in the forehead. Slight bruising and swelling are also commonly reported in the initial few days after surgery. These symptoms, however, usually disappear within a few weeks.
Why a Coronal Brow Lift?
An aging forehead can have an impact on your facial expressions. This means that a heavily furrowed, sagging brow can make you appear consistently tired, angry, or worried. Also, some people have inherited a thicker, heavier brow and may appear to be frowning even if they’re absolutely happy.
A coronal brow lift can help address these facial expression issues so that you can enjoy a more youthful and pleasant appearance at all times.
