Change is in the Air

You Decide How You Age

There is a feeling in the air just before the seasons change—a subtle wisp of wind, a cooler breeze, or perhaps the first feeling of warmth as the sun graces the back patio for the first time after a long winter. These seasons seemed to last for eternity in our youth, but as we grew older, they shortened; some even felt nonexistent. However, specific moments come into our lives that give us pause to reflect on how we can change. As you look in a mirror or perhaps happen to catch a glimpse of yourself in a courtyard window, do you think to yourself, “Do I really look that old?” At North Beach Plastic Surgery, our board-certified surgeons guide you through your aesthetic journey to make subtle cosmetic choices. After all, each season brings new life and a chance to rejuvenate. Today, you can learn more about your rejuvenation choices with a Virginia Beach Brow Lift consultation.

What is Brow Lift?

A brow lift or forehead lift is an outpatient surgery designed to improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles, lift your eyebrows, and smooth the forehead for a more youthful look. The brow lift is often combined with additional procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), for a total rejuvenated look that never looks surprised or forced.

During your consultation, your surgeon will listen to your facial concerns, discuss your options, and determine a unique treatment plan that meets your aesthetic needs. Learn more about a brow lift and if it is right for you by scheduling your one-on-one appointment today.

Am I a good candidate for a brow lift?

The ideal candidate for a brow lift at North Beach Plastic Surgery should be in overall good health and a nonsmoker. Most men and women who consider this surgery have deep horizontal lines in their forehead, lines between their eyebrows (known as the elevens), or low-set brows that make them look angry or tired. If this describes you—you are an ideal candidate for a brow lift. However, people with eyebrows that sit high on their forehead may not be suitable for a brow lift because the surgery could affect their natural facial expressions.

Your Brow Lift Procedure

During your consultation, your doctor will assess your facial concerns and determine what is best for your facial anatomy. The goal of your procedure is to give you subtle changes and not to make you appear unnatural or look surprised. Your doctor will go through the details of your procedure during your brow lift consultation to make sure you have everything you need before surgery. During surgery, your doctor will make tiny incisions that are easily hidden to allow the lifting of the brow and the smoothing of visible signs of aging around the brow by removing excess skin above the brow. Your doctor will ensure your results look like you, only more youthful and refreshed.

Brow Lift Recovery

It is recommended to take one to two weeks off from work to fully recover and heal after your surgery. Swelling and bruising can be expected, but any discomfort is often helped with over-the-counter medication. To minimize swelling, you need to refrain from strenuous exercise for about four weeks. In some instances, you may have a surgical drain placed at your incision site to remove excess fluid and blood, but the drain is typically removed on your next follow-up appointment. One week post-op, your sutures are removed unless your doctor used dissolvable stitches. It is essential to follow all postoperative instructions for optimal healing.

Brow Lift Results

Once your bandages are removed, you will notice a significant change to your forehead and brows having a more youthful appearance. Full results are seen within six months once any swelling and bruising have subsided. Your brow lift is permanent. However, over time your skin and your forehead continue to age. You can minimize aging with the help of broad-spectrum sunscreen and using medical-grade skincare. Your doctors at North Beach Plastic Surgery can also educate you on other preventative and maintenance treatments such as dermal fillers and other rejuvenation treatments.

Brow LiftFrequently Asked Questions

Will it hurt?

During your surgery, you are not in any pain while under anesthesia. During recovery, most patients tolerate any discomfort with over-the-counter medication.

What are the risks?

Brow lift surgery is an extremely safe procedure. However, there are minor risks such as nausea, developing a hematoma, or experiencing hair loss at the incision site.

How much does it cost?

The cost of your procedure may vary from other patients based on if additional procedures are added and the details of your treatment plan.

Does my insurance cover it?

A brow lift is a cosmetic surgery and is not covered by medical insurance. However, North Beach Plastic Surgery offers payment and financing options for your convenience.

Is there a non-surgical brow lift option?

During your consultation, your doctor will discuss both surgical and non-surgical options for your brow lift procedure. A surgical brow lift is invasive and does require up to two weeks of recovery time; however, it does offer the most significant change. For a non-surgical brow lift, Botox and dermal fillers are viable options because they provide gradual improvement.
