BROW LIFT

 

For some patients, a noticeable change in aging is the development of a wrinkled forehead, and eyebrows that can become heavy and begin to droop.  Good skin care and minimally invasive procedures, such as wrinkle relaxers and fillers, can initially improve this, but with enough time people can develop the appearance of a constant frown, making them look older than they feel.

 

A brow lift softens this stern look by repositioning the forehead and eyebrows into a more youthful position.  Elevating the sagging forehead restores its firmer, smoother skin, while raising the eyebrows opens up and brightens the eyes, without altering their shape.

 

Dr. Castillo aims not to change your appearance, but rather rejuvenate it, and will individually tailor a plan to achieve these goals.

 

  • SURGICAL TECHNIQUES

     

    Traditional Brow Lift

    Incorporating an incision running along the top of the head, or at the hairline, dissection of the forehead tissues to the upper eyes is performed, and the tissues are elevated towards the crown of the head.  Excess tissue is then trimmed, and the incision closed.  This approach offers dramatic results to the forehead and eyebrow regions.

     

    Endoscopic Brow Lift

    Using small incisions along the hairline, a camera is used to assist in dissection of the same tissues as in the traditional procedure.  The tissues are similarly elevated and affixed.  An endoscopic brow lift can be used to address both forehead and eyebrow rejuvenation.

     

    Lateral Brow Lift

    This approach uses an incision in a patient’s temporal hairline in order to dissect towards the lateral eyebrow.  The outer one-third to one-half of the eyebrow is then elevated and repositioned for a more youthful appearance.  This approach does not affect a patient’s forehead region.

     

    Eyebrow Pexy

    Often used in conjunction with an upper eyelid lift, a minimally drooped eyebrow can be repositioned using the same incision that is used to remove the excess skin in a upper eyelid lift. This approach will not affect a patient’s forehead region.

     

     

     

  • RECOVERY

     

    Initial discomfort from a browlift will last for approximately a week, but most people can return to work in a few days.  Swelling and bruising to the forehead and eyes may occur, and can be treated with cold compresses in the first few days after surgery.  It is also important that one maintains their head elevated while sleeping, by placing one or two extra pillows underneath their head and neck.

     

    Patients are seen in the office within a week of surgery to assess healing, and to remove any sutures.  Final results will take weeks to months from the surgery, as swelling and bruising resolve, and scars begin to fade.

     

     

     

  • RISKS

     

    We believe in being preemptive to avoid any risks associated with surgery, but occasionally the following may occur:

     

    Numbness: Some patients will have temporary numbness of their forehead and scalp.  This usually resolves spontaneously in a matter of weeks, but in rare instances, this can be permanent.

     

    Poor Cosmesis: This includes asymmetries between the right and left eyes; additionally, the incisions may have poor wound healing with a widened scar, irregularity of the scar contour, or partial wound separation.  This may require additional surgery to correct.

     

    Alopecia: When an incision is made into the hairline, some of the hair follicles may be irreversibly damaged, resulting in a small area of hair loss along the edges of the scar.

     

    Infection:  A brow lift has a small risk of infection, but if one occurs, it may require oral, or intravenous, antibiotics.

Whether bothered by the facial signs of aging, or attempting to correct a feature that has always troubled you, Dr. Castillo employs a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation.  With techniques grounded in skin care, minimally-invasive procedures, and surgeries, Dr. Castillo delivers noticeable, natural-looking results.

FAQS

 

Can I have just a brow lift, or do I have to have a facelift too?

Each procedure targets a different part of the face for rejuvenation.  A brow lift offers a change to the upper face – the forehead and eyebrows.  It can help smooth wrinkles, and reposition tissues into a more elevated, and youthful position.  A facelift aims at improving the mid-face – the cheeks and lower eyes, as well as the lower face –the jawline to create a shapelier contour.

 

Will I have that “surprised” look?

One of the keys to a successful aesthetic surgery procedure is proper preoperative counseling and results expectations.  Dr. Castillo encourages a thorough conversation to detail the goals you wish to obtain with surgery in order to avoid an unwanted brow lift result.
