What causes a heavy brow?
Some people have a naturally heavy or strong brow line that is noticeable even as early as childhood. For most men and women, however, the brow begins to droop or sag over time due to age, lifestyle factors, and sun exposure. When this happens, you may start to notice one or more of the following:
- Forehead lines
- Furrow lines
- Brow lines
- Frown lines
- Flat eyebrows (no eyebrow arch)
- Droopy eyebrows
- Hooded eyes
- Sagging brow
- Always looking angry or tired
Consider brow lift surgery to look happier and more awake
If you are self-conscious about your angry resting face or always looking run down because of your low brow position, you may be a candidate for brow lift surgery. With a brow lift, Dr. Rao can raise the brow, smooth out forehead lines, and restore a more pleasant and youthful look around the eyebrows.
How is a brow lift performed?
There are several possible approaches for brow lift surgery, including the traditional incision browplasty – which involves an open incision behind the hairline, and an endoscopic forehead lift – which utilizes a less invasive approach. Depending on the details of the case, brow lift surgery may be performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rao will discuss all of the available options for brow lift surgery and recommend the procedure that most closely aligns with your needs and goals.
When will the results of brow lift surgery be noticeable?
Patients will notice an immediate improvement in their heavy brow following brow lift surgery. However, it can take several weeks for postoperative bruising and swelling to resolve, after which time the final outcome will be more apparent.
How long is brow lift recovery?
On average, patients should plan to take about 5 – 10 days off of work after brow lift surgery, but this can vary based on the type of brow lift performed. Full recovery after brow lift surgery typically takes about 2 – 3 weeks, though heavy lifting and strenuous exercise may be restricted for longer. Again, the details of brow lift recovery will vary from patient to patient, largely based on the type of surgery performed, the patient’s overall health, their adherence to recovery guidelines, and other factors. Dr. Rao will discuss your expected brow lift recovery timeline with you during your consultation, on the day of your procedure, and during your postoperative follow-up appointments to ensure you are well prepared and can enjoy the smoothest and most successful recovery possible.
