Address Forehead Wrinkles & Sagging with a Brow Lift

Wrinkles, lines, and sagging in the brow area can make you appear aged, tired, or upset. Fortunately, a brow lift, or forehead lift, can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. As a renowned surgical center, Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC offers leading cosmetic care for patients in Missoula, MT, who want to look and feel their best. Dr. Stephen Hardy has dedicated his career to providing his patients with procedures that are tailored to complement their surrounding features for a stunning outcome. This treatment is also popular among many patients due to the limited risks, substantial improvement, and long-lasting results. 

Benefits of a Brow Lift 

Patients who are dissatisfied with wrinkles, lines, or sagging in the forehead region are typically good candidates for a brow lift. This procedure can: 

  • Reduce furrows in the forehead and brow area
  • Minimize unwanted creases across the forehead
  • Improve “frown lines” between the eyebrows
  • Reposition low or sagging brows
  • Reduce tension in forehead muscles
  • Provide natural-looking results 

These impactful changes to your facial structure can also have a significant positive effect on your self-confidence.

Commonly Combined Procedures

Depending on your overall cosmetic goals, Dr. Hardy may also recommend other facial surgery procedures, such as eyelid surgery, a facelift, or non-surgical treatments like a chemical peel. These procedures can complement the improvements made during your brow lift for dramatic facial rejuvenation. 

The Brow Lift Procedure

Whereas as an endoscopic brow lift can create an unnatural, "surprised" appearance, Dr. Hardy strictly utilizes the traditional brow lift technique as it provides a greater level of control over the positioning of the brow. With the traditional method, he has the artistic freedom to create a much more natural appearance while still achieving the youthful results you desire. 

Dr. Hardy has dedicated his career to providing his patients with procedures that are tailored to flatter their surrounding features for a stunning outcome.

To begin, the doctor will make a single long incision along the hairline, where any scarring will be generally concealed. After the skin is gently lifted and any excess skin has been removed, the incisions will be sutured closed. In some cases, the incisions will be covered with gauze. However, depending on the extent of the procedure, a wrap of protective bandages around the head may also be necessary. 

What to Expect during Recovery 

After surgery, patients can minor side effects such as:

  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Minor discomfort
  • Bruising 

These effects are temporary and should subside after a few weeks. To minimize swelling, it is recommended that patients keep their head elevated for the first few days following surgery. Typically, patients will need to request about a week off of work to allow for proper healing.
