Brow Lift Scottsdale
Deep furrows on the forehead, frown lines between the eyes, drooping eyebrows and hood-like skin over the eyes are all conditions that can make you look older than you are or feel.Whether age or heredity causes these conditions, a forehead lift (or brow lift) can give you a more youthful, animated and alert appearance.Dr. Pogue utilizes a special technique (endoscopic procedure) that allows him to make a much smaller incision just above the hairline. Dr. Pogue also performs forehead lifts under local anesthesia supplemented by a mild sedative to keep you relaxed, yet awake. Recovery time is reduced with minimal scarring hidden in your hair. Forehead and brow lifts may be performed alone, or along with other procedures such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.Most patients are on their feet in a couple of days, and back to work within one week. Strenuous exertion, which increases your blood pressure, should be avoided for about two weeks, along with prolonged exposure to heat or the sun.
Brow and forehead lifts are performed to raise eyebrows and reduce furrows and ridges on the forehead, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. As with eyelid lifts, this procedure is often done in conjunction with other surgical procedures.
Forehead and Brow Lift Procedure
- A few one-inch incisions hidden in your hairline are used to insert the small endoscope.
- This instrument is used to gently position your eyebrows into a more ideal position.
- The tiny incisions are closed with sutures.
Complications from brow and forehead lift are relatively few and minor. However, there are inherent risks connected with every surgical procedure. Dr. Pogue will thoroughly discuss this with you during your consultation. Patients can minimize complications by carefully following the directions given to them by Dr. Pogue.
