Who is a Good Candidate?
Men and women who have horizontal lines or creases across their forehead, descent of their hairy eyebrow to below the bony brow, or excess skin that hangs over the eyes can benefit from a brow lift. Ideal candidates will be healthy and have a positive outlook on the outcome of their procedure. Dr. Homas can help to determine your candidacy through a consultation.
The brow lift procedure can be performed using multiple incision patterns. In general, incisions are created in the hair-bearing scalp, and through these incisions, the tissues of the forehead are pulled up and back, thereby reducing wrinkles and elevating the eyebrows. Dr. Homas prefers a limited incision technique, where small incisions are made near the hairline, where they are easily hidden by your natural hair.
After your brow lift procedure, bruising, swelling, and numbness may occur. Ice packs can be used around the eyes to help reduce swelling, and discomfort can be controlled with pain medication. Most patients are able to return to work within a week, but heavy lifting and full activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
