What is a Brow Lift? Cost and Recovery of Brow Lift


Visitors: 337

As we all age, so does our skin and stretched out skin is inevitable for any mortal person. Luckily, while you cannot stop or even reverse the aging process with current medical technology, you can make it look a lot better and when it comes to frown lines and burrows of the forehead, sometime the way to have a lift. One of the very first steps after deciding that you would like to undergo a brow lift is to find a certified and experienced plastic surgeon that specializes in brow lifts. From there you can then set up a consultation with the surgeon to discuss further available options regarding your impending lift.

Deep behind and well hidden past the hairline, the surgeon will make a series of incisions from which to perform the forehead lift. After these incisions are made, the surgeon will then use an endoscope to ensure that all the muscle mass and underlying tissue is in good condition and fix or realign any that are not right. From there, the surgeon will then pull the forehead skin tight and begin to close up the incisions. Any extra skin left will then be cut away and you will be sent off to recover from the procedure.

Just like any other surgeries, there are a number of possible risks and complications which can be associated with a forehead lift. Some of these possible risks and complications can include things like unsightly scars, hematoma, infections, slow wound healing, anesthetic allergic reactions, blood clots, hair loss at the incision points as well as an elevated hair line. Furthermore there is also the possibility nerve injuries, skin necrosis, asymmetry, eye irritation and even skin irregularities It is important to discuss all these risks with your surgeon to make sure that you understand them before agreeing to undergo the procedure.

While a brow lift can be expensive and cost as much as $8,000, this is a rarity and most forehead lifts will range from $2,000 to $5,000 which for most people is either affordable or it is a low enough amount that working out an in-house payment plan is an option. Remember to ask your surgeon about these in-house payment plan options if they are available.
