What is a brow lift / forehead lift?
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can elevate and smooth out undesirable frown lines and worry lines that begin to appear over time and return the brow to a more youthful position, lightening the visage.
This is especially desired for many people who chronically look tired or angry due to the effects of time.
How is a brow lift or forehead lift procedure performed?
A brow lift or mini-brow lift is performed in our Reno outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. A brow lift can be performed with an endoscope or through an open incision approach.
With an endoscopic brow lift, minimal incisions are discreetly placed in the hairline and the endoscope is used to elevate the brow.
With the more traditional open incision approach, a long incision is made across the scalp to elevate the brow.
Both techniques allow for smoothing, tightening and precise lifting for a more youthful, yet natural, result. The type of procedure performed depends on each patient’s specific anatomy, desires, and desired outcomes.
How long will the brow lift procedure take?
This procedure takes approximately one hour with another hour for recovery before leaving the surgery center.
How much recovery time should I expect with a brow lift?
Depending on your profession and need for personal discretion, you may need to allow five to seven days before returning to work. A follow up visit with Dr. Timothy Janiga, will determine your specific time frame. Full results are expected in 8-12 weeks.
What are the typical results from a brow lift or forehead lift?
Forehead creases are smoother, skin is tighter, and eyes appear less tired and brighter for an overall more youthful and natural look. Consult Dr. Timothy Janiga for a realistic expectation of your personal outcome,before and after photos, or any further questions you may have about this or other procedures.
