Will my hair have to be shaved in order to do the Brow Lift?
– Hair shaving is not necessary in order to do the Brow Lift. During the Endoscopic Brow Lift, small incisions will be placed within the hair and no scalp or forehead skin will be removed. With the Coronal or frontal hairline incisions, the hair is parted then after the lift has been completed the scalp will be re-approximated without any gaps.
Can Blepharoplasty be done at the same time as Brow Lift?
– These two procedures can be done simultaneously, especially if the Brow Lift and the Blepharoplasty are required in order to achieve the best results. Basically the Brow Lift is the first procedure to be done and the more conservative upper Blapharoplasty is done last, because there will be less excess upper eyelid skin after the Brow Lift.
How can I tell if I need a Brow Lift as opposed to Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Tuck)?
– There are a lot of cases where the position of the brow contributes to the appearance of the excess skin in the upper eyelids. A heavy brow would tend to sag low on the forehead which will make the upper eyelids look more creased. Bringing the brow higher to its proper position would improve the appearance of the upper eyelids without any surgery.
What factors can prevent me from being a good candidate for an Endoscopic Forehead lift?
– Patients with very high foreheads or receding hairlines (baldness) are not considered candidates for the Endoscopic Forehead Lift because the necessary incisions may not be placed inconspicuously thus resulting for the hairline to recede even further. In cases like these placing the incision at the frontal hairline (or in the mid-forehead crease) will allow the brow to be lifted properly without moving the hairline.
Will a Brow Lift give me a “surprised” look?
– With careful planning and execution of BHMG’s certified surgeons, the Brow Lift is sure to improve the appearance of the forehead and the eyebrows thus not resulting in a “surprised” look.
When can I shampoo or have my hair colored after Brow Lift?
– Surgeons usually allow patients to shampoo and condition their hair 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. Hair coloring and trimming is allowed 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery or when the incisions are completely healed.
