Heavy or drooping brows can lead to a chronically angry or fatigued expression. A medially drooping brow may cause lines and wrinkles to develop horizontally on the forehead or vertically between the brows. Brow lift surgery address the causes of drooping eyebrows by lifting and repositioning the sagging brow.
Immediately following your surgery, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and mild to moderate discomfort. You should rest with your head slightly elevated for several days to avoid additional swelling. Dr. Baker will personally see you in his office every few days for the first week following your surgery to ensure you are healing properly.
You should not exert yourself during the first two weeks following your surgery, and you should avoid direct sun exposure. Bruising and swelling will be evident but will subside after about seven days, allowing you to re-engage socially. Your final results should be visible after four weeks.
Incisions are carefully hidden behind the hairline to avoid visible scar development. It is usually easily concealed and is likely to fade over time.
The average cost of a brow lift is around $4,000 - $5,000 plus anesthesia and facility fees. While price is an important factor when choosing a surgeon, you cannot put a price on quality and long-lasting results. Dr. Baker is a meticulous and highly skilled board-certified facial plastic surgeon with years of experience and an artistic eye for providing beautiful, natural-looking results.
Dr. Baker performs brow lift surgery using local anesthesia and light sleep anesthesia or intravenous sedation to keep his patients comfortable during the procedure. Prescription pain medication will alleviate any discomfort during the first two to three days during your recovery. After that time, most patients only require an over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen (TYLENOL®).
