Brow Lift Montreal
As aging progresses, skin wrinkling and a loss of tone can occur in the forehead area as it does in the eyelids and lower parts of the face. This may cause sagging of the eyebrows, resulting in a tired or sad look and aggravating the appearance of excess skin of the upper eyelids. It may also result in deepening of the horizontal expression lines and wrinkling in the forehead itself. There may be deep, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows in the center of the forehead. The forehead/brow lift is designed to correct or improve these problems.
The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia. Using several 1/2 inch incisions hidden behind the hairline, improvements are made beneath the skin and on the deep muscles. The skin and muscle is then tightened to give a fresher, more youthful appearance. The forehead/brow lift may be done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenating procedures.
After surgery, there will be some temporary swelling and discoloration that may involve the eyelids and lower portions of the face as well. There may also be temporary numbness of the scalp. You will be permitted to wash your hair shortly after the surgery. The stitches or skin clips will be removed a week or two after the operation.
