The aging process triggers a number of developments, including the gradual or severe descent of the eyebrows over the eyes. “Brow descent” or “Ptosis” may yield in the patient an appearance of scowling, or even a fatigued or severe look. The Browlift, sometimes referred to as the forehead lift, is the antidote to this condition.
The Browlift is performed under light sedation. Some patients may experience a slight headache in the first 12-24 hours following surgery, easily treated by pain relievers. There may also be some swelling and bruising of the brow and upper eyelids for 48-72 hours following surgery. However, after 72 hours, the patient may resume most daily activities.
A browlift surgeon, such as Dr. Garlich, will perform the surgery by making three or four incisions in the hairline. However, for those with a high or receding hairline, the procedure may utilize a small skin excision to prevent further recession of the hairline.
