The brow region is important for the overall youthful appearance of the face. When a patient is rejuvenated with a brow lift, the results not only help the area above the eyes but allow the eyes themselves to appear more open and awake. A brow lift can restore the eyebrow arch and open the eye area, as well as correct wrinkles, drooping skin, and furrows.
What Can A Brow Lift Help Treat?
Most of the indications for a brow lift are also known as common signs of aging. If you experience any of the following conditions you may want to consider a brow lift:
- Drooping, descended or asymmetric brows
- Glabellar creases
- Crow’s feet
- Horizontal lines and furrows
What Can I Expect During A Brow Lift?
Your brow lift in San Antonio will last between one and two hours and will be conducted with local or general anesthesia depending on the extent of surgery needed to achieve the desired result.
After the face is cleansed thoroughly and the hair is tied back securely, and Dr. Ortegon will make one incision (or for the endoscopic method, several very small incisions) behind the hairline. The forehead skin will then be lifted, and the muscles and tissues removed or altered to create a smoother appearance. The brows are elevated and secured with sutures placed under the skin or titanium screws behind the hairline. Stitches or clips are then used to close the incisions.
Can A Brow Lift Be Combined With Any Other Procedures?
Recovery and Results Of A Brow Lift
Most patients can return to their normal routines between seven to ten days after surgery. After three weeks, most of the effects of surgery will have diminished. The results of your brow lift in San Antonio can last between five to ten years. During your consultation, Dr. Ortegon can explain the details of recovery and what you can expect. It is normal for brow lift patients in San Antonio to experience numbness, nausea, incision discomfort and mild swelling. You should limit rigorous activity for several weeks and sun exposure for several months. During a follow-up appointment, any fixation devices will be removed, and the stitches or staples can be removed as well.
