Eyebrow Lift Overview
Your eyebrows are a major source of facial expression, and even slight sagging can age you prematurely and make you look tired. A brow lift by Dr. Carpenter in Dallas can add vitality and energy to your appearance. It also will:
- Raise the position of brows that have fallen with age
- Smooth frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead
- Lift the upper eyelids to create a more alert and attractive appearance
- Create a more youthful appearance
Every patient receives a customized surgery to ensure the best results. After evaluating your facial tissues and brow shapes, Dr. Carpenter will typically perform a procedure that addresses the tightening of muscles to restore their position with a small incision at the hairline, an upward tightening of the tissues and removal of excess skin to smooth lines and wrinkles, and restoration of the brow position. This typically addresses eyelid sagging, but the doctor may recommend a blepharoplasty procedure to correct eyelid sagging in combination with the brow lift. The surgery is typically performed under twilight anesthesia or general anesthesia.
Depending on the combination of facial procedures being performed, recovery time could be within a few days to a few weeks. After a brow lift, most patients are comfortable going out within a few days, but Dr. Carpenter cautions against disturbing the area until healing is complete.
