Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Naples Plastic Surgery
Brow lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that lifts drooping eyebrows to help patients look more refreshed and appear years younger. A board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Paul Gardner uses a minimally invasive procedure called endoscopic forehead lift in the Naples area to help patients achieve a rejuvenated appearance.
Loose, drooping skin around the eyebrow area can cause patients to look fatigued, weighted and tired despite feeling energetic and well rested. Many patients become dissatisfied with the modest results topical treatments can provide and seek plastic surgery specialist Dr. Gardner for their brow lift surgery.
Brow Lift in Naples
Before the procedure, our cosmetic surgeon meets with brow lift patients individually to evaluate their initial condition and listen to their aesthetic concerns and goals. Along with the patient, our cosmetic surgeon devises a personalized treatment plan to meet the patient's unique needs, yielding more natural-looking results.
During the procedure, an inconspicuous incision is created behind the hairline or within the scalp. Next, the surgeon lifts the forehead and sometimes removes muscles that pull the brow down. Following completion of the procedure, a bandage is applied around the head, which can generally be removed after the first day.
Forehead lift surgery is recommended for patients who suffer from deep forehead lines and drooping eyebrows. Dr. Gardner sometimes suggests that his forehead lift patients combine brow lift with other cosmetic surgery procedures to help them achieve their ideal look. Many patients undergo brow lift and eyelid surgery simultaneously to dramatically improve the overall eye area.
Our practice treats patients at our fully accredited outpatient surgical facility, which is equipped with some of the most sophisticated technologies available. His facility has been endorsed by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAASF), a certification that acknowledges the facility's strict health codes and advanced equipment.
Recovering from Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return home soon after the procedure. Patients typically need one to two weeks of rest before they are able to return to work. Dr. Gardner and his compassionate team make themselves available to patients at all times during their recovery to help ensure minimal complication rates.
Like all surgical procedures, forehead lift surgery has a risk for infection and other complications. Dr. Gardner has performed browlift surgery for years and boasts a remarkable surgical record of minimal complications.
