Brow Lift in Phoenix, AZ
Wrinkles, sagging facial skin and fine lines on the forehead can make you look older, tired and drained. Residents of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona can get a brow lift from board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC to turn back the hands of time.
What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure similar to a facelift. However, a facelift tightens and smooths skin throughout the face, while a brow lift focuses on the skin directly above the eyebrows and around the forehead region. It is a suitable option for anyone who wants to correct noticeable lines on the upper parts of the face.
Benefits of Brow Lifts
The primary benefit of a brow lift procedure is that it can make you look younger and rejuvenated.
Other potential benefits include:
- A shorter recovery period than a traditional facelift
- Provides patients with more options and choices regarding incisions, as compared to a facelift
- Raises drooping, loose eyebrows
- Erases fine lines and wrinkles around the brows and forehead
What Is the Procedure for a Brow Lift?
The first step in a brow lift procedure is administering general anesthesia. Being immobile greatly reduces your movements and enables Dr. Taghizadeh to better concentrate on his work. From there, Dr. Taghizadeh will use an endoscopic or coronal incision to perform the brow lift. With an endoscopic incision, he makes a small incision near the hairline and places an endoscope, which is connected to a miniscule camera, inside the skin. Dr. Taghizadeh will maneuver the device around the targeted area to smooth out wrinkles and adjust the position of fat and tissue in the forehead.
With a coronal incision, Dr. Taghizadeh uses a procedure similar to a facelift. He makes a series of tiny incisions from the top of one ear, across the top of the head and over to the other ear. Dr. Taghizadeh will then reposition skin toward the back of the head, smoothing skin down and removing any excess skin as he works.
Regardless of which procedure is used to complete the brow lift, Dr. Taghizadeh will close the incisions with unnoticeable sutures, surgical tape, clips or a medical adhesive, depending on the circumstances.
Brow Lift Recovery
After a brow lift, your forehead may be loosely dressed to minimize swelling and bruising. You will be instructed to keep your head elevated and refrain from engaging in any vigorous physical activities. Do not use ice or heat on the brow lift area. Within two weeks most patients can return to work and their normal daily routine.
How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost in Phoenix?
Most insurance companies consider plastic surgery to be an elective procedure and do not offer coverage for these procedures; a brow lift treatment is usually excluded from policies. In order to make eyebrow lift procedures and other plastic surgeries financially accessible and affordable, Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, accepts cash, checks and credit cards. In addition, financing is offered through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®. If you have any questions about the brow lift procedure, recovery, costs or financing options at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, please give us a call.
Is a Brow Lift Right for Me?
The ideal candidate for a brow lift is a person who feels they look older and tired because of fine lines and wrinkles on his or her forehead. In addition, a potential patient should be in overall good health. Dr. Taghizadeh may run some tests to ensure you’re healthy enough for the brow lift surgery.
Where Are The Incisions Located For A Brow Lift?
A traditional brow lift procedure involves larger incisions located by the hairline. An endoscopic brow lift surgery uses a series of much smaller, unnoticeable incisions, placed around the same area.
Will I Have Scars After My Forehead Lift?
A brow lift typically involves invisible or mostly unnoticeable scars, most of which are hidden by your hairline.
