What Happens During the Brow Lift Procedure?
Brow lift surgery is performed under moderate sedation or general anesthesia. Incisions are usually located above the forehead, along the hairline, and in some cases, on the side of the head. The placement of incisions will depend on the type of brow lift surgery performed. During the procedure, Dr. Tansavatdi will release the attachments of the brow to the underlying bone and lift the brow skin to a new position. The incisions are usually closed with sutures or staples, and Dr. Tansavatdi will apply a surgical dressing to the head. The procedure generally takes about 1 to 2 hours. Patients are free to go home the same day. A brow lift is also often performed in conjunction with a facelift with Dr. Tansavatdi.
