Brow Lift Procedure
A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, can counter signs of aging by releasing wrinkles and raising your eyebrows. Dr. Hyman uses two different methods to safely and effectively address his patients’ concerns:
- Endoscopic brow lift
- Coronal brow lift
He is well-versed in both methods, so his approach varies depending on your unique anatomy and treatment goals. He does more endoscopic procedures than coronal, as most of his patients are better candidates for the less-invasive endoscopic method.
Both techniques begin with the delivery of anesthesia for patient comfort. Next, incisions are made, tissue and muscle are adjusted, and incisions are closed. Dr. Hyman performs surgery in his private ambulatory surgery facility or in a hospital.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
With endoscopic brow lifts, Dr. Hyman makes tiny incisions just inside the hairline. He utilizes an endoscope, which is a small tube with a camera on one end, and other specialized tools to alter the tissue and muscle. Through these adjustments, wrinkles are released and the forehead regains a relaxed, youthful appearance. If needed, your eyebrows can be raised as well.
Coronal Brow Lift
Not every patient is a candidate for endoscopic treatment. In those cases, Dr. Hyman uses the coronal technique. A coronal incision is made from one ear, over the top of your head, to the other ear. The brow is lifted, and necessary alterations of the forehead muscle can be made. Excess skin is eliminated and skin is tightened to give you beautiful results.
Brow Lift Recovery
Dr. Hyman will provide specific instructions for your recovery period. For optimal healing and results, it is vital that you follow his recommendations. Special care must be taken to minimize swelling and protect the incision sites from force, excessive motion, scratches, or scrapes.
An elastic bandage will be wrapped around your head after surgery. Dr. Hyman advises keeping your head elevated and refraining from strenuous physical activity. It is best to plan on taking a week or more away from work so you can rest and promote healing. You will also want to restrict your sunlight and heat exposure.
Follow Up Care
Two days after your brow lift, dressings will be removed. A week or two after the procedure, sutures will be taken out. Dr. Hyman will monitor your recovery and gradually clear you for work and other activities. Our team is available to answer your questions and address concerns throughout your recovery.
