A brow lift (forehead lift) is a surgical procedure designed to raise the eyebrows to achieve an appearance that is more attractive, friendly, and refreshed. Facial procedures such as a brow lift are one of the main services at The Maercks Institute in Miami, and after undergoing this surgery, patients feel more confident and youthful.
The brow lift procedure
A brow lift is an outpatient procedure performed with the patient under general anesthesia. A brow lift is often combined with other procedures such as an eyelid lift or dermal fillers for enhanced results. Incision type and placement will be determined by the technique of brow lift you will be getting (see below), but in general, the incision can be made above the forehead; along the hair-bearing scalp; on the side of the head; in the forehead creases, or in the upper eyelids. Dr. Maercks is always extremely careful to create incisions in a manner that minimizes the visibility of the scar. Once the surgery is complete, the area will be dressed to help with swelling and healing. A brow lift typically takes 1 to 2 hours, but the exact amount of time will be determined during your consultation, along with the procedure technique and incision placement.
