A common sign of aging is wrinkles across the forehead. There are many temporary ways to treat wrinkles but the best and most permanent solution is with a brow lift. A brow lift is a surgical procedure that smooths away the lines of the forehead by removing excess fat and skin.
Brow lifts at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic are performed by Dr. Qazi’s team of experienced plastic surgeons, who use the latest surgical technique to give patients the best results. The results are permanent and the recovery period may take up to several months, but all patients will love their happier, more youthful face!
Who is a good candidate for a brow lift?
Anyone who is overall healthy but who has sagging brown, deep horizontal forehead wrinkles, furrows at the top of the nose, or excess skin hanging over the eyes would be a good candidate for eyebrow lift surgery. Men or women who only have minor forehead wrinkles are encouraged to consider Botox instead, rather than a surgical brow lift.
Is a brow lift suitable for men?
Yes! Brow lifts are great for men who want to take years off their face by getting rid of their forehead wrinkles.
How can I prepare for the surgery?
Before your surgery, patients may be asked to get lab tests or a medical evaluation, adjust medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs. It is also important to cease drinking alcohol two days before the surgery.
How long until I see results?
It takes 10 to 14 days to heal enough to see the results. After those 10-14 days, patients are safe to return to work or school. In the first 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery, the brows may be slightly elevated. This is completely normal. The brows will settle into their final position after approximately 6 months.
Are the results permanent?
Brow lifts can last up to 10 years if patients take proper care of their skin. Gravity will cause the skin to droop over time, but the best way to maintain the results is to keep a healthy diet, avoid sun damage, refrain from excessive frowning, and not smoke.
What do I need to do post treatment?
Patients are instructed to avoid blood thinners after surgery and take all prescribed antibiotics for the first 7 days. For safety, patients should also refrain from driving for the first 3 or 4 days.
Some swelling and bruising near the hairline is normal. Until the skin completely heals, all patients should sleep on their back, avoid touching the treated area, and avoid harsh skin care products.
Are brow lifts safe for all ages?
Brow lifts are safe for nearly all ages. Most people won’t need one until later in life. The ideal age for a brow lift is 45 to 55. Many patients have their first brow life in their late 40s or early 50s, then have a refresher brow lift in their 60s.
Will I have visible scars after the procedure?
Patients can expect to have some light marks after surgery. These marks will fade over time to the point where they will be nearly invisible. Surgeons at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic hide the incisions behind the hairline to avoid visible scarring on the face.
Can I get a brow lift if I am pregnant or nursing?
Dr. Qazi does not recommend undergoing cosmetic surgical procedures while pregnant because it may directly or indirectly lead to complications. Additionally, the recovery from a brow lift can be lengthy and a little uncomfortable. Due to the discomfort related to pregnancy and nursing, Dr. Qazi recommends waiting on all elective surgeries to avoid additional discomfort.
Will the procedure be painful?
No, the entire procedure is performed under general anesthesia. After the surgery, soreness, general discomfort, tingling, numbness, and light itching is normal. Neither the surgery nor the recovery should be painful; however, some minor discomfort is to be expected.
