Wrinkles and frown lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area. A forehead lift or browlift is performed by Dr. Robert Dryden to smooth out the wrinkles and correct drooping brows and heavy lids to provide a younger, friendlier appearance.

A browlift can be performed alone or with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or laser skin resurfacing.

It used to be that cosmetic surgery was for the over fifty crowd. Patients waited until they saw wrinkles and then asked for "the works." Their results were dramatic, but unfortunately, everyone could tell they just had surgery. Today, nearly one-third of those seeking facial rejuvenation surgery are between 35 and 50 years old.

Browlift / Forehead Lift

A browlift can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with deep sedation, or general anesthesia, and may take 1 - 2 hours. With the classical or "open" method the incision is hidden just inside or by the hairline across the scalp and between the ears. Your surgeon lessens the appearance of wrinkles by removing selected muscles and releasing tissues, which cause the wrinkles. The eyebrows may also be elevated, and excess skin at the incision will be removed to allow a gentle redraping of your forehead skin.If you're a male with a receding hairline, surgery may be made through your eyelids to anchor the brow tissues at a higher position.

Endoscopic Browlift

Endoscopic or minimal-scar browlift is performed using a tiny fiberoptic lens inserted through half-inch incisions placed in the hairline. The lens is attached to a camera, which is connected to a television, allowing for visualization of the surgery. Additional half-inch incisions are made for the insertion of tiny scalpels, scissors and retractors. Your surgeon performs the procedure while viewing the television monitor and manipulating the tiny instruments externally.

An endoscopic browlift is particularly useful with younger patients where the removal of excess skin is not required. With an endoscopic browlift, loss of sensation or hair at the incision site is minimized. Since an endoscopic browlift can significantly reduce the frown lines between the eyes, it is often performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery to achieve optimal results.

What will your Browlift surgery recovery be like?

After Dr. Robert Dryden performs your browlift, there is a minimal amount of discomfort. There will be swelling and bruising that may last from 7 - 10 days. For some patients this may include the cheeks and eyelids. Keeping your head elevated and application of cold compresses will help to reduce swelling. As your incisions heal, you will notice some itching and possibly some numbness. These symptoms will diminish over time.  Numbness behind the incision may be present with some of the browlift procedures and is generallh transient..   You may wear make-upover the incisions after well healed, and your sutures will be removed in 7 - 10 days. Strenuous activity is restricted for 3 weeks.
