Brow Lift Surgery in Seattle, Washington

  Brow lift Surgery in Seattle Washington performed by board certified female plastic surgeon in Seattle. Information about brow lift surgery also known as a forehead lift.

The best candidates for browlift surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older.

As in all other specialties of medicine, making the correct diagnosis is essential to successful treatment. It is quite common for patients, and some doctors, to look at the aging eyelids and incorrectly think there is too much upper eyelid skin when in fact the problem lies in sagging of the brow. This sagging produces an overhang of the upper eyelid skin that gives the appearance of upper lid skin excess. When laxity of the brow is not corrected first, upper eyelid skin may be removed that should have been left alone and either the problem of an overhanging lid due to a lax brow persists or too much skin of the upper lids is resected. In such cases it may be impossible to correct the brow problem later because so much normal upper eyelid skin has been removed that the patient would then be unable to close the eyes. Evaluation of the aging eyelids must always begin with evaluation of the brow.

If you live in the Seattle area and want a cosmetic surgery procedure such as forehead or brow lift , contact Dr. Rekow, MD of the Cosmetic Surgery Associates of Seattle to schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate.

PLANNING YOUR BROWLIFT SURGERY IN SEATTLE

This procedure is performed in our office surgical facility and the patient is able to return home following surgery.

BROWLIFT SURGERY

An incision of variable length (depending on the specific brow condition) is made in the hairline. With normal hair density the incision is concealed within the hairline. No hair is shaved from the scalp. The brow tissue is completely released from the underlying bone, repositioned upward, the excess scalp tissue removed and the wound closed. A facelift dressing is applied and will be removed the following day and any drains also removed at that time.

AFTER YOUR BROWLIFT SURGERY

Antibiotics may be continued for several days following browlift surgery. Sutures are removed in 10-14 days. Swelling usually subsides within a week and bruising, when it occurs, typically occurs around the eyes and subsides in 2-3 weeks. Eye makeup may be used immediately unless there has been surgery to the eyelids in which case makeup can be used in 5-7 days. Dr. Rekow determines when normal activities can be resumed; however, strenuous exercise must be avoided for several weeks following surgery.
