Brow Lift in Greensboro, NC
Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, P.A. offers brow lifts to the residents of Greensboro, Burlington and surrounding North Carolina communities desiring cosmetic surgery.
What Is Brow or Forehead Lift Surgery?
A forehead or brow lift moves the eyebrows back to where they belong, at or above the bony orbit. The lift may also smooth the furrows in the forehead as well as reduce the drooping skin above the eyes. As a result of the surgery, the eyes appear more open, more rested, and youthful.
Who Is a Candidate for Surgery?
The ideal candidate for a brow lift is someone who is looking for improvement in one or more of the following conditions:
- Sagging or lowered position of the brows
- Deep creases across the forehead
- Furrows between the brows and top of the nose
How Is Brow Lift Surgery Performed?
Dr. Coley performs brow lift surgery at his office in Greensboro, North Carolina. There are several procedures that can be used to elevate the brows and correct the changes that occur with aging of the forehead area. Selection of the procedure depends on the position of the brows, the height of the hairline, and the amount of skin in the upper eyelids.
In some cases, an incision is made across the top of the scalp just behind or at the hairline. Excess skin can be removed, the brows can be lifted, and the muscles that cause wrinkling and frown lines can be modified through this incision.
In other lift techniques, Dr. Coley makes small incisions in the scalp, on the forehead, or above the brow area. Instruments are inserted through these incisions and used to work on the internal structures of the forehead, lifting the brows.
What to Expect Before Brow Lift Surgery
During the initial consultation in his office in Greensboro, Dr. Coley analyzes the eyes, brows, forehead, and hairline to determine the appropriate procedure and incision placement. He discusses the medical history of the patient as well as expectations and desired improvements. To achieve the best result, Dr. Coley may recommend combining a brow lift surgery with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, a facelift or Botox® injections.
What Is the Recovery for a Brow Lift?
Brow lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed in Dr. Coley’s office in Greensboro. It commonly takes one to two hours, depending upon the complexity of the case.
After surgery, a turban-type head dressing may be used overnight and is removed the next day. The discomfort following a brow lift is usually minimal and is managed with oral medications. Stitches and/or staples are removed about five to six days following surgery and involve little discomfort. During the recovery period, Dr. Coley provides specific instructions to reduce the swelling and bruising that may occur. Certain activities are restricted to protect the healing tissues.
Since the healing process is gradual, the best results can be expected from three to six months after surgery. A brow lift reduces the tired, worried, or angry expression often created by aging. Patients of Dr. Coley in Greensboro are usually very happy with their results for many years.
Dr. Coley serves facial surgery patients not only from Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Burlington, North Carolina but throughout the United States.
