Forehead Lift in Milwaukee and Waukesha

Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)

A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, can minimize some of the most visible signs; drooping eyebrows, ‘hooding” over the eyes, forehead furrows, and frown lines that come with age. The result is a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

What Is a Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)?

A forehead lift (brow lift) procedure lifts the muscles and skin to smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyelids and minimize frown lines. The result provides a more alert and youthful appearance. Recent advances in plastic surgery have made the forehead lift a relatively straightforward procedure with results that last from five to ten years or longer. This procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as facelift, eyelid surgery, or nose surgery.

Most patients are pleased with the results of a forehead lift. Often, patients don’t realize how much their sagging forehead contributed to the signs of aging until they see how much younger and more rested they appear after the lift.

The Best Candidates for a Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)

Both men and women of any age may be good candidates for a forehead lift. While the procedure is most commonly done on people in their forties to sixties to slow the visible effects of aging, it can also help people with inherited conditions, such as a droopy brow or furrowed lines above the nose.

To see how a brow lift might change your appearance, stand in front of a mirror and place the palms of your hands at the outer edges of your eyes, above your eyebrows. Then gently draw the skin upward to raise the brow and forehead area. You can adjust the amount of elevation of the brow until you find the right amount that you feel looks good. That is approximately what a brow would do for you. The amount of elevation can be individualized so that you do not appear “surprised”.

Forehead Lift (Brow Lift) Consultation

A personal consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons is the first step for every patient considering a forehead lift (brow lift). During this meeting, one of our surgeons will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific goals for surgery.

Our surgeon will evaluate your face, including the skin and skeletal structure. Suggestions may be given for other procedures that can be performed along with or instead of a forehead lift. Botox, although not a permanent fix, can be injected into the creases to diminish and soften the wrinkles. Some patients have Botox injections to get an idea of what a long-lasting look of a forehead lift will be. Procedures that can be done along with a forehead lift to give an overall facial rejuvenation are:

Don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.

Forehead Lift Surgery and recovery

The surgery will be performed at one of our accredited, in-house surgical suites. The procedure generally takes 1-2 hours depending on the case. We care for you in the recovery room for at least one hour before you are discharged.

When the date for your procedure has been set, we will provide you with specific instructions for the days immediately before and after surgery.

You may experience some numbness and temporary discomfort around the incisions, which can be controlled with medication prescribed by your surgeon. You need to keep your head elevated for two to three days following surgery to reduce swelling. Some swelling is inevitable, even around your eyes or cheeks. Bruising and swelling should begin to disappear in a week or so.

Numbness on the top of your scalp may be replaced by itching as nerves heal. These sensations may take up to six months to fully disappear. Bandages, if used, will be removed a day or two after surgery. Most stitches or clips will be removed in 10 to 14 days.

Some of your hair around the incision may fall out and may temporarily be a bit thinner. Normal growth will usually resume within a few weeks or months. Permanent hair loss is rare.

A  forehead lift, like a facelift or any other surgery to rejuvenate the effects of aging, does not stop the natural aging process.
