Sagging eyebrows are something many people have to deal with as they get older. Drooping brows can make a person look constantly tired or frustrated. Sagging eyebrows are often accompanied by harsh forehead wrinkles, which only further emphasize the constantly tired look.

Patients in the Destin, Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Panama City Beach areas who have harsh forehead wrinkles and sagging eyebrows may want to consider a brow lift.

The Brow Lift

This cosmetic surgical procedure is used to reduce moderate and deep forehead wrinkles and lift the eyebrows, correcting the aged appearance of the brow and forehead.

A brow-lift surgery is often performed in conjunction with a facelift or eyelid surgery to achieve an even more youthful and refreshed appearance.

What to Expect If You’re Coming In for a Brow Lift

A brow lift is an outpatient procedure that takes about two hours to complete. It begins with administration of anesthesia in order to make the patient more comfortable for the duration of the procedure.

A single incision is then made; this allows Dr. Ceydeli access to the underlying tissues in the region. In a traditional brow lift, Dr. Ceydeli makes a single incision from one ear to the other at the top of the forehead, behind the hairline.

The skin is lifted and then excess muscle, skin, and fat are removed in order to smooth out the area. Finally, the skin is redraped and sutures are used to close the incision.

The Brow-Lift Recovery Period

After the brow lift, you may expect minimal temporary numbness, discomfort, and bruising and swelling in the region. Painkillers will be prescribed to address discomfort.

Make sure to protect the area during recovery. This means avoiding anything that could cause trauma to the region.

Smokers will need a longer recovery period than non-smokers. This is because smoking affects the health of the skin, causing healing to be slower.

Once the recovery period is complete, you will be able to enjoy smooth and youthful results. Having realistic expectations from surgery goes a long way in determining exactly how much you benefit from it. A brow lift gives permanent results. However, the quality of these results will depend on the patient’s age and the amount of weight they gain over the years.

Arranging a Consultation

Before deciding to have a brow lift performed, patients in the Destin, Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Panama City Beach areas should arrange a consultation with an experienced medical professional. Dr. Adil Ceydeli, a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience, will be happy to meet with you for a consultation.

A consultation is vital for a variety of reasons. You may possess health risks that you should have checked out before coming in for surgery; this will lead to a lesser chance of complications. To address this, Dr. Ceydeli will perform an examination of the forehead and brow and will ask about your complete medical history.

The two of you will discuss your aesthetic goals and the details of the procedure. Recovery instructions will also be given. Contact us today for your consultation.
