BROWLIFT / FOREHEAD LIFT



Browlift or forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure most often performed among men and women from ages 40s to 60s. It aims to correct drooping or sagging eyebrows and improve deep forehead creases, furrows or frown lines that can make a person look angry, sad, tired or concerned. After the surgery, you will look refreshed, friendlier and youthful, plus with better vision.

“Although the effects of aging is a factor in the cause of drooping, sagging and wrinkling of the skin in the eyebrows and forehead, more and more younger adults between 25 to 35 are having premature deep frown lines due to stress and over-activity of the muscles. Young adults who have low forehead (acquired genetically) can also benefit from browlift. So contrary to what people believe, browlift is not just for old adults,” explains Dr. Alonzo.

During your consultation…

Dr.Alozo will evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors, as well as discuss the likely outcomes of the procedure, risks and complications and the type of anesthesia that will be used, including all aspects of the surgery from preparation to post-operative care and follow up and recovery, etc.
Moreover, prior to surgery, you will be advised to take certain medications or adjust your current medications and stop smoking few days before the surgery, as smoking can increase bleeding. You will be asked to avoid taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs, and prescribe special instructions like what to do the night before the surgery.

The browlift surgery

A browlift procedure is surgically lifting the forehead area to restore the eyebrows to the natural position. Considerably it can change the look without doing eyelid surgery, but it will give best results if it is done simultaneously. During this procedure, removing the muscle that causes them can also soften the frown lines. This procedure takes about one and two hours and is done in the clinics surgical area. It is performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient basis or general anesthesia with or without hospital stay. Dr. Alonzo will just recommend the best for you.

Browlift Post surgery recovery

You may experience swelling, bruising, numbness, and some temporary discomfort like headaches around the incision swelling, bruising, numbness, but these will be easily controlled by medications prescribed by Dr. Alonzo. You will be instructed to keep your head elevated for two to three days after surgery to help reduce swelling. Bruising of the brow will disappear gradually in few days or weeks. After two days, you will be required to visit the clinic for the removal of your bandage, then after 7 days for the removal of your stitches. You can resume work within 7 to 10 days but avoid doing strenuous activities like contact sports and exercise that may injure your head or the operated area. As the nerves start to heal, the feeling of numbness on top of your scalp will be replaced by itching. You will feel this sensation for a period of 5 to 6 months before it fully disappears. You will notice that some of your hair may be a bit thinner but this is just temporary. Some of your hair around the incision may fall out but it will grow within a few weeks or months. Final results can be seen after a month, it will continue to improve as the recovery and healing progresses. You will notice that your skin is becoming smooth in appearance, your skin feels tighter…totally rejuvenated. To achieve optimal result, browlift can be done in conjunction with other facial procedures such as facelift, eyelid surgery, fat transfer, botox, or chemical peels
