Are you Considering a Browlift in the Dallas Area?
If you have a forehead with saggy skin or eyebrows that hang too low and too close to your eyes, you may be the ideal candidate for a forehead lift. If you have deep frown lines between your eyebrows, you may also be an excellent candidate. Browlifts, also referred to as forehead lifts, give a more youthful appearance to your forehead and upper eyelids.
Dr. Whetstone performs browlifts on an outpatient basis and uses general anesthesia. Incisions are most often made behind your hairline, but in cases of individuals with high foreheads, incisions may be placed in front of the hairline.
Instruments are used to weaken the muscles that cause frown lines, while also lifting and repositioning the forehead skin. The patient’s head is wrapped with dressing, which are typically removed a day or two after the surgery. Oral medication is prescribed to reduce any pain and discomfort. Bruising typically disappears within 7-10 days, and all sutures and staples are removed within that time frame as well. A browlift may be used in combination with other procedures, such as an eyelid lift, face lift, or other similar procedures enhancing the appearance of the face.
In order to learn what an individual can specifically expect to result from a browlift, a consultation with the surgeon should be held. Every surgical procedure comes with a certain degree of risk and uncertainty. Minor complications do occur, but they do not affect the final outcome of the surgery. Major complications are also possible, but are unusual.
Also note that browlifts do not require overnight stays in the hospital. This procedure is performed in an outpatient surgery center.
