At the practice of Dr. Dimitrios Motakis, patients of the Toronto, ON area are encouraged to find out how they can improve their appearance when the signs of aging become more prominent. With cosmetic surgery, patients can ease the appearance of specific areas of the face. With a brow lift procedure, areas around the forehead and eyes can be improved.
What is a brow lift?
A brow lift is a procedure, sometimes known as a “forehead lift,” that consists of surgical intervention that reverses the natural changes that occur with aging. The surgery helps in opening the eye area and giving a more natural contour to the upper part of the face, resulting in a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Who should consider a brow lift?
Not everyone is the best candidate for a brow lift. It is essential that men and women speak with a doctor to determine if the brow lift can effectively resolve their specific concerns.
The best patients for a brow lift are those who:
- Want to reduce the wrinkles and furrows on the forehead area
- Have vertical lines, sometimes called “elevens,” that appear between the eyebrows
- Want to lift sagging eyebrows that hang low over one or both eyes
- Have crow’s feet, the fine lines that develop on the outside corners of the eyes
What should I expect from brow lift surgery?
First, patients need to consult with a plastic surgeon to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for a brow lift. Scheduling an appointment to discuss your specific needs and concerns is a great start. Once patients have determined that this procedure is appropriate for their specific concerns, they will speak to the doctor about the surgery itself. A brow lift is performed as an outpatient surgery and is done under proper, monitored anesthesia for patient comfort. Patients can expect to take some time off of work and social activities to recovery from their brow lift surgery and to facilitate faster healing.
