The skin on the face, particularly the skin around the eyes, is among the most sensitive on our body. Unfortunately this means that our most unique features are also the most susceptible to signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles and sagginess. As the eyes are the focal point of the face, many patients become self-conscious when their beauty is hindered by a sagging brow, or wrinkles. Brow lift surgery, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, can eliminate droopiness from the brow, and reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging on the forehead. This comprehensive procedure can help patients look younger, more alert and even happier. Boca Raton plastic surgeon Dr. Rafael Cabrera is experienced in facial aesthetic procedures and is widely recognized as the leading provider of facial plastic surgery in South Florida. He has helped many brow lift patients obtain the look they desire.
More about Brow Lift Surgery
Wrinkles on the forehead and around the brow can cause individuals to look angry, concerned or upset, even when they are none of those things. Brow lift surgery solves this problem, helping patients look youthful and refreshed by eliminating wrinkles, creases between the brows and droopy eyelids. Brow lift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift or neck lift. Using advanced techniques, Dr. Cabrera is able to help patients achieve an attractive, natural-looking appearance.
Brow Lift Candidates
While there is no restriction on the age of a forehead lift patient, the typical patient is between the ages of 40 and 65, with mild to moderate signs of aging. Some individuals experience signs of aging in their 30s, however, and may consider a forehead lift earlier in life. During your consultation, Dr. Cabrera will examine your facial features and review your medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate for brow lift in Boca Raton. Typically, a forehead lift is appropriate for patients who:
- Are experiencing signs of aging around the brow such as sagging skin or wrinkles
- Are in good overall health
- Do not smoke, or are able to quit smoking for a period before and after treatment
- Have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure
Brow Lift Surgery in Boca Raton
At Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton, Dr. Cabrera uses the latest treatment techniques and technology to deliver advanced care to his forehead lift patients. Brow lift is performed at our accredited surgicenter on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients are able to go home on the same day as their procedure. Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton also offers overnight recovery suites, as well as at-home care, for patients who wish to take advantage of it. Typically, this procedure is performed utilizing a local anesthetic and a simple one-pill sedation method. Many of Dr. Cabrera’s patients appreciate this anxiety-free method of anesthesia.
During the procedure, an incision is made behind the ear and across the forehead so that any scarring will be hidden inside the hairline when the patient has completely recovered. The skin of the forehead is then lifted and excess tissue is removed and repositioned. Once Dr. Cabrera has made the necessary changes, the area is closed with sutures.
In addition to performing traditional brow lift surgery, Dr. Cabrera offers Boca Raton brow lift patients minimally invasive options, including endoscopic and iGuide treatments. Endoscopic brow lift surgery allows Dr. Cabrera to make a series of small incisions, rather than one large incision. This reduces recovery time and scarring. The iGuide System enables surgery to be performed with only a series of needle punctures. During you initial consultation, Dr. Cabrera will discuss which treatment option is best for you.
Patients who undergo forehead lift in Boca Raton should expect minor swelling, discomfort and some numbness after the procedure. Dr. Cabrera provides thorough post-operative instructions to ensure a safe and speedy recovery period. Most patients are able to return to work within two weeks, and can resume normal, non-strenuous daily activities in about one week.
