A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that raises the skin above your eyebrows, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It’s a quick, outpatient procedure that provides stunning results and very few side effects.
If you’re 40 or older and unhappy with the appearance or condition of the skin on your forehead, you’re probably a good candidate for a brow lift. Following an in-office consultation, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Taube can make recommendations for treatment.
At The Elite Wellness Resort, Dr. Taube performs several types of brow lifts, including:
A classic brow lift is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Taube makes an incision just above one ear and carefully follows your hairline across the forehead to your other ear. Then, she gently lifts your skin and adjusts the underlying fat, facial muscles, and tissue.
An endoscopic brow lift is minimally invasive and allows for quicker recovery than a classic brow lift. During this procedure, Dr. Taube Makes small incisions in your hairline. Then, she uses special tools to lift your skin and underlying tissue, smoothing out the wrinkles and fine lines.
Dr. Taube performs temporal lifts in-office. They use local anesthesia, so you don’t fall asleep. During the procedure, Dr. Taube makes small incisions and uses special tools to lift and tighten the skin on your forehead.
Following a brow lift, Dr. Taube provides you with a list of care instructions. It’s important you adhere to these guidelines to reduce the risk of infection and to help your body heal.
In the days following your procedure, take your medication as prescribed, use cold compresses to minimize swelling, keep your head elevated while sleeping, and avoid strenuous physical activity like high-intensity exercise.
In some cases, Dr. Taube applies a draining tube to your surgical wounds. She removes the tube a few days after your procedure.
