Every woman wants to have harmonious, nicely raised, and symmetrical eyebrows. However, due to aging or hereditary factors, the eyebrows tend to fall. Thankfully, there is a modern procedure to help with this called a brow lift, and it is ideal for improving droopy eyebrows.
This descent in the eyebrows changes the appearance of the face and, consequently, the aesthetics of the patients.
What is a browlift?
It is a surgery that seeks to raise and restore the eyebrows. Its main purpose is to elevate them to an optimal place and in proportion to the rest of the face, complementing other facial characteristics.
This treatment is also called a “forehead lift” as it not only raises the eyebrows but also smooths wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Bonus!
Although there are several options, the browlift offers successful and long-lasting results for each patient.
Dr Daniel Saco-Vertiz is a Specialist in aesthetic treatments, rejuvenation, and plastic surgery.
Who needs a brow lift?
The main reason our patients visit us for this treatment is due to age, combined with the ever-present gravitational effect. It is natural that the eyebrows descend as we get older.
This procedure is also suitable for people who do not like the position and shape of their eyebrows.
How is a brow lift performed?
An eyebrow lift is not a complicated procedure. It begins by making small incisions in the area of the scalp so that our specialist has direct access to the forehead tissues and eyebrow area.
The eyebrows are raised and repositioned to the desired height.
Finally, we use self-absorbing fixation devices or stitches, depending on the case.
What are the postoperative care?
During the first few days, you may feel some discomfort in the upper area of your face. It is important that you take the anti-inflammatories and other medications that Dr. SacoVertiz recommends.
Vigorous physical effort should not be carried out to avoid possible bleeding and thus lengthen or delay recovery.
The intervened area will be slightly swollen which is normal and to be expected. However, after the first week you will be able to resume your social activities.
It is important to follow all the recommendations that we give as this will achieve a shorter recovery and help create effective long-lasting results.
