A brow lift can be an effective way to reverse the signs of aging on the face. By lifting the forehead, it can eliminate those deep worry lines that many of us have accumulated over time from stress or smoking. It can also be used to fix unwanted droopy eyebrows (also known as ‘brow ptosis’). Some people combine brow lifts with facelifts and eyelid surgery – this can be a great way of ironing out all those wrinkles on the face. While invasive, brow lift surgery can offer much more effective and long-lasting results than options like botox and filler.
At Shonan Beauty, we have performed many successful brow lifts on patients. Our team of experienced cosmetic surgery professionals know how to achieve the best results with minimal scarring and pain, helping to make your transformation simple and stress-free.
Potential Candidates for Brow Lift
We are willing to treat anyone that is unhappy with forehead wrinkles or a drooping brow. We assess our patients individually to determine their needs and are able to recommend other treatments if we feel a brow lift isn’t necessary. As the procedure can be invasive, we like to ensure that our candidates are comfortable with the process – surgery isn’t for everyone and we may be able to advise you on less invasive forms of treatment if you are having second thoughts of going under the knife.
Our US clinics are located in Irvine and Thousand Oaks. Costs can be an issue for some people, however at Shonan Beauty we are able to offer many flexible forms of payment, helping to make our high quality cosmetic treatment an affordable option for all.
Benefits and What to Expect
A brow lift is a relatively straightforward procedure that can be done in a couple hours – many patients are able to walk out the same day. The procedure involves making small incisions in and around the forehead in order to lift the skin up, helping to flatten out wrinkles and get rid of droopiness. There are many different approaches to this procedure, some of which may be able to minimise scarring and recovery time. The procedure is generally performed under general anaesthetic.
There are few risks with a brow lift, especially compared to many other forms of cosmetic surgery. As a fairly routine operation, complications tend to be rare. If scars open up or get infected, it is usually the result of patients not following care tips during recovery.
Recovery from a brow lift can be initially painful, but this pain usually subsides in a matter of weeks. The scarring will be sore when healing and you may suffer from the occasional headache. The level of pain experienced can vary from patient to patient – while some report a lot of discomfort, many others experience very little pain at all.
At Shonan Beauty, we are able to recommend forms of pain relief to help put you at ease during your recovery. We recommend abstaining from certain activities which could exacerbate pain such as physically exertive manual work and sleeping without a pillow.
Downtime After the Procedure
Like any form of surgery, we recommend treating yourself to some downtime afterwards and refraining from strenuous activity. You may want to take the time off work while you recover so that you are not tempted to overexert yourself.
After the procedure, you may be asked to wear bandages for 24 hours after the procedure. Swelling can be initially noticeable and some people may want to avoid going outside and showing their face until it is healed. When sleeping, you’ll want to keep your head elevated at all times for at least 48 hours – this will prevent you from disturbing stitching. We recommend using lots of pillows to help prop yourself up. You won’t be able to shower until 24 hours after the procedure and after this period you should take great care when washing your hair as to not disturb the scarring.
Shonan Beauty began nearly two decades ago in Japan and has since grown to over 85 million locations, performing over 6.8 million surgical procedures. Our US clinics in Irvine and Thousand Oaks bring the same high quality care at affordable prices. It is our mission to make you happy and to bring you the positive transformation that you desire.
