At Saxon Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin & Dallas brow lift surgery can remarkably change the entire face with minimal recovery time. As one ages the eyebrows descend and sag closing off the eyes to light. Sometimes this sagging can even limit peripheral vision. It is often done in conjunction with a blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the upper third of the face.
There are a variety of techniques for achieving a brow lift:
When considering a brow lift Austin facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sarah Saxon will perform a comprehensive exam of the eyes, forehead, and hairline to tailor the surgical technique to your specific needs.
Recovery after a brow lift is generally quite straight forward. A compressive dressing on the forehead is placed for one week and can be removed to wash the hair and clean incisions.
In the case of an endoscopic brow lift, there are only small incisions present. With other techniques, the incisions are much longer and can be kept clean by keeping the hair clean and removing any scabs. There is bruising and swelling that is worse around the eyes and cheeks from gravity pulling it down. The scalp is often numb for weeks to months and resolves over time. Most people take a week off of work to give time for bruising to subside, but patients feel well enough to do work from home throughout most of the recovery period.
