The signs of aging on your face start off oh-so subtly, usually on your brow and forehead. As you age, your skin begins to lose its elasticity. At the same time, the sun and wind’s harsh effects and the pull of gravity take their toll, resulting in frown lines (vertical creases between your eyebrows), wrinkling across your forehead and heavy, drooping eyebrows.
These unwanted lines on the face may portray to others anger, sternness, hostility, fatigue or other unintended emotions.
In such a case a Forehead lift also called Brow lift/Browplasty can help. This surgical procedure minimizes the creases across the forehead and those that occur high on the bridge of the nose. It can also banish frown lines and reposition expression lines and other telltale signs of aging in your brow region.
There really is no age requirement. A brow lift is can be performed on someone as young as their late 20s and at any age after that. For younger patients, there are endoscopic techniques that provide a less intensive lift than people older than their age may require.
A forehead lift generally takes around 3-5 hours to perform on outpatient basis. No, the procedure isn’t a very painful one because Dr. Mrs. Nirved Jain performs it on the patient under general anesthesia, ensuring his/her comfort during the surgical procedure.
The results of a brow lift begin to emerge as the initial swelling goes away which is generally 5-7 days post operation. Patients can return to work within 7-10 days post operatively. Full results should be visible within a few months.
Brow lift results are semi-permanent depending on the individual. For some the results may last for a lifetime and some may need another procedure in future. However, no matter how old you become you’ll always look 10-15 years younger your age after a brow lift procedure.
