For many people, the effects of aging can become noticeable in the eyebrow area. Whether it is wrinkling, creases, loose skin, overhanging eyebrows, or frown lines, a brow lift can correct many of the effects people face as they grow older.

A brow lift is a procedure in which excess skin around the brow area of the face is removed, and the skin left behind is smoothed to give people a refreshed, more youthful look.

Good candidates for having a brow lift procedure are women and men who want to give themselves a younger look to reflect how they feel and the slow the appearance of aging.

For a brow lift, Dr. Rai at the Cosmetic Surgical Center in Dallas, Texas makes incisions hidden in the hairline and pulls the tissue in the brow back so that it is smoothed, and the effects of aging are reduced or eliminated.

A brow lift is usually performed under local anesthesia, meaning that you will not be asleep for the brow lift procedure, but you will not feel any pain. Once Dr. Rai has completed the brow lift, he will close the incisions using sutures or stitches.

Many times, brow lifts are performed as outpatient procedures, meaning that you will be allowed to go home to recuperate from the surgery. However, if the brow lift is performed as an inpatient procedure, you may be required to stay in the hospital for a day of rest.

Many times brow lifts are performed along with other cosmetic surgery procedures like nose reshaping, facelift, eyelid surgery, or microdermabrasion.

Following a brow lift, bruising and swelling may persist in the area for a few weeks, and itching, numbness, and isolated hair loss may occur around the incisions. All of these effects should subside after a few weeks of recovery.

Although work and normal activities can be resumed after a few weeks or so of rest, after a brow lift, strenuous activity and exposure to the sun should be limited. Dr. Rai will provide you with specific instructions.
