Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Brow Lift Surgery in Tampa
If the signs of aging have left you with deep forehead furrows or a sagging brow, it can leave you looking constantly tired or upset. People may ask you if you’re feeling alright because of your appearance even when you are having a good day. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your brow or forehead, a brow lift can help to restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Brow lifts are performed in Tampa by Dr. Stan Castor at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Castor is highly skilled and experienced with brow lifts and forehead lift procedures. He can help you improve the appearance of your face and eyes with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
A forehead lift/brow lift is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. It is designed to correct drooping brows and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.
Dr. Stan Castor commonly performs a forehead lift for patients in the 40-60 age range to minimize the visible effects of aging. However, it can also help people of any age who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or muscle activity. Individuals with inherited conditions—such as a low, heavy brow or furrowed lines above the nose—can achieve a more alert and refreshed look with this procedure. The brow lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to provide a smoother overall look to the face. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may also be performed at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if a patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids. Sometimes, patients who believe they need upper-eyelid surgery find that a forehead lift better meets their surgical goals. Dr. Castor will discuss your options in detail during your consultation to determine which facial plastic surgery procedure is best for you.
Patients who are bald, have a receding hairline, or have had previous upper-eyelid surgery may still be good candidates for forehead lift. Dr. Stan Castor will simply alter the incision location or perform a more conservative operation. Remember, a forehead lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to necessarily treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them in detail with your doctor.
How is a Brow Lift Performed?
During your brow lift, the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows, and minimize frown lines. Tampa plastic surgeon, Dr. Stan Castor may use the conventional surgical method, in which the incision is hidden just behind the hairline; or it may be performed with the use of an endoscope, a telescoping surgical viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with minimal incisions. Alternatively, an Endotine dissolvable device can be inserted beneath the brow to lift this area through an eyelid lift incision.
