About Browpexy Brow Lift
One of the most universally recognized signs of aging is the distortion of the brow. As the face ages, the brows can often descend, causing the eyes to appear tired or depressed. Patients often complain that expressing their emotions or feeling energized is more difficult. As performed by Dr. Ogilvie in Chicago, brow lift surgery is intended to address these concerns by making the brow appear significantly more youthful.
Introduction to Brow Lift (Browpexy)
At OPS, we use state-of-the-art techniques to restore the position and shape of the brow to restore a more natural and youthful appearance. If your brow has become your face’s center of attention, contact our staff at OPS to set up an initial consultation with Dr. Ogilvie.
We will be able to discuss your individual needs and desires in detail, answer all the questions you might have, and get started on your brow transformation.
Brow Lift Benefits
The benefits of any brow lift procedure will vary depending on the patient. However, in general, brow lift benefits often include:
- A more youthful appearance; small changes to the brow can make a big difference in how old or young patients look
- Greater range of expressible emotions
- You will no longer look as fatigued
- An increase in confidence and self-esteem
Many patients report feeling younger in addition to looking younger after a brow lift procedure. If you want to talk to Dr. Ogilvie about what benefits might be in store for you, contact us to set up an appointment and get started on your transformation.
Who is a Good Candidate for Brow Lift?
When the signs of aging begin to show, which facial rejuvenation procedure would work best for you may not always be clear-cut. A brow lift might be the best possible option for you if:
- You notice sagging or dropping of your brow line
- You have a significant number of wrinkles located around your brow
- The wrinkles located around your brow are especially severe or deep
- It’s difficult to emote due to a sagging brow or excess skin along the brow
- You notice a significant amount of excess skin on your brow
- You are healthy enough for surgery
You have realistic expectations about what a brow lift procedure can accomplish.
Is a Brow Lift Right For Me?
Depending on your desires and treatable areas, brow lifts are sometimes performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelift or blepharoplasty.
If you think you might be a good candidate for a brow lift or have questions about how a brow lift could help you look more youthful, contact our offices to set up a consultation with Dr. Ogilvie.
The Brow Lift Procedure
As the brows become heavier with aging, they often drop to or below the upper rim of the eye, causing a tired or angry appearance. To reposition the brow, there are five possible primary techniques used at OPS:
- First is the least invasive eyelid incision
- The second is a slightly more invasive temporal incision
- The third is the direct brow incision
- Fourth is the hairline incision
- Fifth and lastly is the most invasive: the traditional or posterior-hairline incision.
At OPS, we tailor the procedure to the patient's needs to give the most effective but natural-appearing results.
What Should You Expect?
Anesthesia – The brow lift can be performed with either oral, IV, or general anesthesia to keep you the most comfortable during the procedure. In cases when local anesthesia is appropriate, a sedative may also be used.
Incision – As stated earlier, five possible incisions may be used, the eyelid or brow incision, the temporal incision, the direct brow incision, the anterior hairline incision, or the traditional posterior hairline incision.
Closure – All incisions are typically closed with sutures or surgical clips, typically removed after one week of recovery.
Results – visible results are evident once residual bruising and swelling subside, which may take up to 6-8 weeks. Healing depends on the type or combination of procedures performed and your personal ability to heal.
