Brow Lift in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers brow lifts to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Healthy people who are looking for a refreshed, more youthful facial appearance often choose a brow lift. Some of the most apparent signs of aging occur in the forehead. As wrinkles and lines develop in the brow over time, it causes your face to take on a tired or angry look. A brow lift will raise and tighten the skin of the forehead, restoring your youthful, happy appearance. A brow lift is often done in conjunction with other facial surgeries for complete facial rejuvenation.
How is a brow lift done?
A brow lift is done endoscopically, in a minimally invasive procedure that results in no visible scarring. Small incisions within the hairline are made, and Dr. Kontis inserts a tiny camera device called an endoscope. Excess fat and tissue are removed, muscles are adjusted, and the forehead skin is reshaped and tightened before being stitched in place. A bandage may be applied to the brow area. The operation takes about two hours and is performed under local anesthesia and sedation.
What is recovery from a brow lift like?
Discomfort from brow lift surgery is minor and can be managed with pain medication. Any swelling and bruising over the first few days can be minimized by keeping the head elevated and will generally resolve within a week. Normal activities can be resumed within 5 to 10 days, although more strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks. Sun exposure should also be restricted for a few months.
Patients enjoy dramatic results from brow lift surgery since lines and wrinkles in the forehead can be a key contributor to an aged, unattractive appearance.
