Brow Lift Procedure
What can a brow lift accomplish?
A brow lift will transform your face in an extremely natural way, so you look more youthful and approachable. Not only will this enhance the face you see in the mirror, but it will also dramatically improve your self-esteem. Plus, when the procedure is performed by a leading Houston plastic surgeon, like Dr. Sukkar, your results will endure for years. Though the brow lift won’t stop you from continuing to age, you will always look younger than you would have without the procedure.
Is a brow lift right for you?
If an aging brow is causing you to look older far before your time, you may want to consider a brow lift with Dr. Sukkar. It tends to produce incredible results for patients who feature:
- A sagging brow
- A perpetually tired or angry appearance
- Droopy upper eyelids
- Deep forehead lines
- Brow furrows
In general, most of our brow lift patients are in between 40 and 50 years of age, and possess noticeable signs of aging around the eyes and forehead. However, younger patients in their 20s and 30s may also be candidates, if genetic factors and other issues are causing them to age prematurely.
An overview of the
Dr. Sukkar performs endoscopic brow lifts for his Houston patients, which means the procedure is minimally-invasive and uses the smallest incisions possible. To begin, he will administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety, before making three to four minute incisions well-hidden within the hairline. He will then insert an endoscope, or a tiny camera, through one of the incisions, so he can visualize your underlying structures on a large screen in the operating room. Using a series of tiny instruments, Dr. Sukkar will then elevate your forehead skin, shift your brows to a more youthful position and remove any muscles that are contributing to your lines and wrinkles. Once he’s successfully refreshed and rejuvenated your forehead, he will close the incisions, trim away excess skin and place bandages to protect the area.
Your brow lift recovery
After your endoscopic brow lift with Dr. Sukkar, you can look forward to a swift recovery with very minimal side effects. You’ll be able to return home several hours after your procedure is complete, at which point you should plan to stay home from work for three to seven days. During this period, it’s normal to experience some pain, swelling and bruising – however these effects will all disappear very quickly. In the meantime, you can easily manage any discomfort with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Sukkar.
Within three to four days, you’ll be able to apply makeup again, and you’ll likely begin feeling comfortable enough to be seen in public. After one week, you’ll return to the office to have your stitches removed, at which point Dr. Sukkar will evaluate your progress and provide you with personalized guidance regarding the next steps in your recovery process. In general, you can expect to resume many of your daily activities at this time, with a full return to more strenuous exercise within three weeks.
