Brow Lift Jacksonville
Do horizontal forehead furrows or vertical creases between eyebrows give you an angry, sad, or tired look? Sun damage and weight fluctuation can prematurely add years to your appearance, adding to the natural aging process. A brow lift tightens and lifts forehead skin, removing unsightly wrinkles and restoring your youthful appearance. The results can be amazing. You will still be you, but look about ten years younger.
What is a Brow Lift?
There are two brow lift procedures performed at Coastal Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL: the traditional brow lift and the endoscopic brow lift.
A traditional brow lift starts with an incision discreetly placed along the hairline near the top of the head. Forehead skin is tightened, and excess skin and tissue are removed. This procedure is typically recommended for patients over 40.
An endoscopic brow lift involves the use of an endoscope. During this technique, several small incisions are made along the hairline, an endoscope is inserted beneath the skin, the forehead skin and underlying muscles are lifted and tightened, and surplus skin and tissue are removed. An endoscopic brow lift is recommended for younger patients with newly forming brow lines and wrinkles.
At Coastal Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, both types of brow lift are done on an outpatient basis under anesthesia, and either can be combined with a facelift, collagen or BOTOX® injections, or eyelid surgery for more dramatic results. The procedure takes about one to two hours, and temporary side effects may include swelling, bruising, headaches, or numbness.
Can I see before and after pictures of people in the Jacksonville area who had a brow lift?
During your consultation visit at Jacksonville facility, your surgeon will show you before and after pictures of patients from Jacksonville, Orange Park and Jacksonville Beach who underwent a brow lift procedure at our Jacksonville office. You will be able to see firsthand the difference the procedure made for these people and will be able to visualize what a brow lift can do for you.
What is the average cost of brow lift surgery?
During your meeting with the surgeon, you will receive a detailed breakdown of all costs involved in your brow lift procedure. Because the extent of brow lift surgery varies from patient to patient, our surgeons prefer to examine the problem before quoting a price.
Is there a better time of year to have the surgery performed?
You should make sure you schedule your surgery at a time that will let you be able to heal. After brow lift surgery, you will have a 10-15 pound lifting restriction for at least 2 weeks following surgery. (That will include lifting children.) You also have to make adjustments at work due to pain, swelling, bruising and being on pain medication. On average, patients take a week to 10 days off work. Patients with physically demanding jobs, or are in the public eye because of their job requirements, may need to take more time off to heal.
