Background: Brow Lift surgery is done to enhance the position of a drooping eyebrow.
Evaluation: Clinical evaluation begins with the assessment of your specific forehead anatomy and your desires for improvement. Dr. Reilly will work with you to create a plan that aligns your goals with potential surgical treatments based on your anatomy.
Pre-op Considerations: Generally, this type of surgery is done to lift the eyebrow to a position that more closely resembles the unaffected side.
Surgery: The minimally invasive technique involves small incisions within the hair and placement of a small dissolvable hook to lift the forehead skin onto. The implant, called an “Endotine,” dissolves over a period of about 6 months while the tissues are healing in place.
Post-op Care: Most patients take one week off work, followed by another week of reduced activity. There will be bruising and swelling for 7-10 days. After 2 weeks, you may resume full activity.
