While age comes with wisdom, it can also weigh on one’s facial features. The process of growing older can manifest in very distinctive ways, such as unwanted drooping eyebrows. Having brow lift surgery can raise a heavy, bowed looking brow line to make way for a softer, more youthful appearance. Dr. Prichard performs brow lift surgery to help reverse signs of aging in the upper portion of the face.
For most men and women, this “hanging brow” begins to reveal itself sometime during their early thirties, or even late twenties in some cases. This comes about by the skin and deep attachments of the forehead becoming relaxed and eventually succumbing to the pull of gravity. Meanwhile, the fat that lies underneath the skin lessens, which can result in a tired or harsh aspect to one’s face. This tends to be seen particularly around the forehead and brow area, which causes undesirable shift in the overall look of one’s brow. A brow lift can help reverse these modifications, so that you may appear more youthful and refreshed.
Because of the varying nature in which women and men age, a brow lift procedure should not be approached in the same manner from one patient to the next. Your brow lift procedure will be made to your unique features and personal preference. Dr. Prichard’s main goal is to give you a brow lift that grants you with that renewed sense of youth that you’ve been seeking. Dr. Prichard strives to give you what is one of the best brow lifts.
Following your brow lift surgery, it is recommended that you apply cold compresses to the newly treated areas for the first 24 hours. This helps to minimize bruising and swelling that’s likely to occur. It is very important that you keep your head properly elevated as much as possible during the first 7-10 days. Many patients find that sleeping in a recliner, or with extra pillows behind your head helps a great deal. Patients usually feel up to returning to work within 7 to 10 days, after the bruising and swelling has subsided.
