A Brow Lift Can Turn Back the Years

A Forehead / Brow Lift Reverses the Effects of Time and Gravity.

Frown lines, wrinkles and a drooping brow are all signs of aging which can be reduced or reversed with a Brow Lift , also known as a Forehead Lift. Minimizing the creases, which can develop across the forehead, or those that occur between the eyes on the bridge of the nose, is a commonly performed procedure.

Sometimes, genetics will play a part in a “heavy” or drooping brow on younger patients, and a Brow Lift can be used to reposition the eyebrows and tighten the supporting subcutaneous tissue.

What results can you expect from a Forehead Lift / Brow Lift?

After your initial healing period of 5 to 10 days, your sutures will be removed. You should be able to return to work or your normal activities at that time, depending on your occupation. There will be some minor swelling and the incisions might still be visible for the following number of weeks. Keeping your head elevated and applying ice as directed by your physician will quicken your healing time, as will avoiding secondhand smoke, or smoking yourself.

Once fully healed, your new, more youthful look will last for many years to come. Living a healthy lifestyle and avoiding too much direct sun, will also help.

How can you best prepare for your Forehead / Brow Lift?

If you use tobacco of any kind, you will need to refrain well before your scheduled Brow Lift surgical date. Anything you can do to enter into your surgery as healthy as possible is recommended. And again, we would ask that you avoid aspirin, herbal remedies and anti-inflammatory medications, because they can increase bleeding.

Dr. Janiga might prescribe certain medications or recommend adjustments to your current medication regimen, depending on what your health questionnaire and examination reveal. Your health and safety is our primary concern. Dr. Janiga will invest a great deal of time making sure you fully understand the procedure, and getting to know you personally, because he enjoys the connection he makes with each patient.

To schedule your initial consultation, where you can meet Dr. Timothy Janiga personally and look at before & after pictures of people who have had their own Brow Lifts, please contact us right away. We look forward to meeting you.
