A brow lift is ideal for those who have a descending brow or aging on the forehead and upper areas of the face. Loose tissues in the brow area that come with aging can cause vision to be slightly closed off and the appearance to look more aged. A brow lift can alleviate these symptoms and give a more youthful appearance and improve self-confidence.
Dr. Georgopoulos is an expert in this area, using his surgical expertise and aesthetic knowledge to advise on how a brow lift could be a good choice for you.
For the brow lift technique at the Geoplasty Center, a number of small incisions are made within the hairline. These incisions allow Dr. Georgopoulos to see the underlying structures of the brow and face, so he can tighten the underlying tissues. In some cases, a small amount of tissue may be removed to achieve the desired result. When the procedure is finished and the structures of your face have elevated the brow to a more appropriate position, the incisions are closed with sutures and a bandage is applied.
The technique employed will of course depend on the patient and what treatment is required. Dr. Georgopoulos may suggest other procedures that can be carried out with the brow lift in order to give a complete and youthful appearance.
After the Brow Lift
After surgery, someone will need to take you home and stay with you until the next day. You will need to wear a bandage for several days to protect against infection. There may be some swelling after surgery and dull pain, but Dr. Georgopoulos will prescribe pain medication if necessary.
The swelling after surgery can take some weeks to completely fade, and you may need to take one to two weeks to recover. Staff at the Geoplasty Center will advise you on the best ways to manage your recovery.
Side effects after a brow lift are infrequent but can occur – Dr. Georgopoulos will advise you on these and how to avoid them during your consultation. Possible side effects include infection and mild scarring.
