What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, is a surgical technique that addresses signs of aging in the forehead. Forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and a sagging brow can develop as we age. These can contribute to a tired or aged appearance, but a brow lift can elevate the eyebrows to refresh the appearance. Many patients choose to combine their brow lift with a a blepharoplasty or a facelift for more comprehensive results. We offer several variations of a forehead/brow lift, depending on the patient’s anatomy, forehead height, hairline, and desired outcome.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost?
The cost of a brow lift can range from $8,400 to $8,500 depending on the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Brow Lift Procedure Like?
During a brow lift procedure, incisions are typically made along the hairline. Through these incisions, excess skin will be removed so that the skin on the forehead can be raised and tightened. After the desired results are achieved, the incisions are stitched. Then, a head wrap will be placed as a bandage.
How is Recovery Following a Brow Lift?
Pain is minimal following a brow lift. Most patients take prescription pain medication the first day or two following the procedure and then rely on over-the-counter medication to control pain thereafter. Bruising can occur and usually settles around the eyes creating a “black eye” appearance, which can last about one week. During this time, patients may need to take time off of work and other activities to rest and recover. The stitches will be removed two weeks after your procedure.
