If you have developed wrinkles or sagging skin in the forehead, you may want to consider a brow lift at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates. We are proud to offer brow lifts and other facial surgeries to men and women living in Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington and Annandale, VA, and neighboring cities.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a cosmetic facial surgery that addresses wrinkles and loose skin in the forehead to create a more youthful appearance. After a brow lift, the eyebrows will have a more elevated, youthful position. The brow lift procedure also smooths frown lines and other wrinkles in the forehead area, resulting in a smoother, refreshed appearance. If you are looking for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation procedure, you may want to consider combining your brow lift with a blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the eyes, or a facelift.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost?
The cost of your brow lift procedure at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
All brow lift surgeries are performed using general anesthesia to ensure optimal patient safety and comfort. With a brow lift, incisions are typically made in areas that are concealed, like the hairline. Once incisions are made, Dr. Mirali will remove excess skin and fat to produce a more youthful appearance. Once the desired results are achieved, the incisions are closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Recovery Like After a Brow Lift?
After a brow lift, patients can expect mild swelling and bruising in the forehead area that can last for a few weeks. Despite these effects, patients are often able to return to work and other activities about two weeks after their surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Mirali will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your personal treatment plan.
Are the Results from My Brow Lift Permanent?
The results from your brow lift will be permanent, but it is important to remember that normal effects of aging can still occur. Patients will continue to notice gradual changes in their appearance due to the natural aging process. However, the majority of patients are satisfied with their results for many years after their treatment.
