What is a Brow Lift?
We all express emotions. The collective laughs, frowns, and expressions are what color our lives and make life so rich. But these expressions can also take their toll.
At Janiga MDs, we offer the brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, to help elevate and smooth out these undesirable frown lines that begin to appear over time. The procedure has been carefully designed to return the brow to a more natural position and generally give you a more youthful look.
A brow lift or mini-brow lift is performed in our Reno outpatient surgery center by award-winning surgeon Dr. Timothy Janiga.
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, natural result. The type of procedure Dr. Janiga performs depends on your specific anatomy and desired outcome.
This procedure takes approximately one hour with another hour for recovery before you can go home.
Recovery & Results
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.
Once fully recovered, you will notice that your forehead creases are smoother, skin is tighter, and eyes appear brighter for an overall more youthful and natural look.
