If you find yourself in search of something to soften your hardened features, or perhaps remove that forever furrowed-brow, then you may want to consider having a brow lift (also known as a forehead lift). Dr. Andres uses his unparalleled skill to deliver a brow lift that uncovers and rediscovers your face, which had previously been veiled by a heavy hanging brow. With a brow lift, you can expect to look younger and more bright-eyed appearance. Dr. Andres seeks to perform some of the best brow lifts Phoenix has to offer.
The natural course of aging is likely to develop in the form of some drooping or sagging skin, especially in the eye area, resulting in overhanging, heavy looking eyebrows. With most men and women, these signs begin to manifest in their late twenties to early thirties. This occurs because the skin and muscles attached to the forehead become loose and relaxed, causing the skin to stretch and thin. Meanwhile, the fat-tissue that lies underneath the skin decreases. These factors, together, would be attributed to the result of a worn down, tired or even stern looking condition. The outcome is a shift in the shape and position of the eyebrow, which shadows one’s face with a weary and listless expression.
Dr. Andres will come up with a customized surgical plan, with the ultimate goal of reviving as well as complimenting your individual features.
Once out of surgery, you’ll be able to return home. The treated areas will be carefully bandaged, so as to aid in the healing process. Applying cold compresses for the first 24 hours will help to minimize bruising and swelling of the brow and eye area. It is critical that you keep your head elevated as much as possible, during the first week of recovery. Sleeping with a couple extra pillows behind your head can help, or sleeping in a recliner. Whatever you will find to be most convenient and comfortable. You can expect some minor swelling and bruising for the first week or two. This is normal. Any discomfort or pain you may experience can be managed with medication, if you desire. Generally, most patients feel they are ready to return to their daily routines within a week to 10 days or so.
If you’re considering having a brow lift, you may want to look into some of the coordinating procedures that Dr. Andres offers, for a more comprehensive facial enhancement, such as an eyelift (also referred to as Blepharoplasty). Dr. Andres will be able to aptly determine which procedures or treatments are right for you during your initial consultation.
