Brow Lift or Forehead Lift
Dr. Bender performs brow and forehead lifts for patients who are looking to reduce the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes, and improve frown lines. This procedure creates a smoother, more youthful appearance and it can also be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries.
Some surgeons perform a brow lift using an incision across the top of the head from the front of one ear to the front of the other ear. The forehead and brows are elevated and excess skin is removed. The flap is then sutured. Dr.Bender utilized state-of-the-art techniques that now allow us to perform forehead lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an endoscope and specialized instruments. This accelerates the healing process and reduced numbness and hair loss after surgery
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur which should subside within a few weeks. Our doctors will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics up to two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1 to 2 weeks. A final evaluation will occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
