If you are disappointed with how your eyebrows sag and how aged your face looks because of frown lines and wrinkles, you can come to Michigan Oculofacial Specialists in Detroit, MI, for a forehead lift. Also known as a brow lift, a forehead lift can take years off of your appearance, leaving you looking fresh and bright again.

The Forehead Lift and What to Expect

At the start of a forehead lift, the patient is anesthetized. After anesthesia gets administered, incisions are made near the hairline. At Michigan Oculofacial Specialists, we customize the incision type used according to the needs of the client.

Various surgical options will be discussed including an endoscopic forehead lift, pretrichial and direct brow lift. The brow can then be lifted and adjustments made if necessary to both the hairline and muscles causing forehead wrinkles.

During the endoscopic forehead lift, three to five smaller incisions are made. An endoscope is a small tool that allows the doctors visibility of the region. The images from the endoscope are seen directly or on an external monitor. The pretrichial forehead lift involves an incision behind the hairline. The forehead is tightened and excess tissue removed. The direct brow lift is performed at the border of the brow and forehead skin.

At Michigan Oculofacial Specialists, you may choose to get a forehead lift on its own or alongside other facial-rejuvenation procedures like blepharoplasty surgery. This creates more comprehensive results.

The Recovery Process After a Brow Lift

When you have your forehead lift performed at Michigan Oculofacial Specialists, you are given proper and specific post-surgical care instructions to follow. It is in your best interest to follow our directions for a speedy and comfortable recovery.

The recovery period for a forehead lift is usually 10 to 14 days. You don’t need to worry about taking off from work for very long and can expect to resume your daily activities in around two weeks’ time. More strenuous activities like sports and heavy exercise should be avoided until you are cleared to resume them.

Testimonial

Dr. Handler is kind and patient – answering questions one might have in a relaxed, gentle manner. The office environment is pleasant with efficient, friendly and helpful staff. I was also impressed with the surgery center, Truvista – a modern, spacious and comfortable facility. My eyelids turned out beautifully and naturally, I am extremely happy with the results. I no longer have to raise my eyebrows to the max to see upwards and the deep forehead wrinkles this caused are now receding. The eyelids now feel weightless and can move effortlessly. If you have ever had long hair and had it cut off, that is the feeling of lightness that remains! My field of vision is also greatly expanded – sometimes you don’t know what you are missing until you get it back! Additionally, in these past months, four people I have met also had Dr. Handler “do” their eyelids and all were equally as enthusiastic. He is a highly specialized eye surgeon and I can’t recommend him highly enough!
