Can I pair my brow lift with another cosmetic surgery?
Yes, many of our patients combine several cosmetic surgeries to achieve a more consistent appearance of facial renewal. For example, a brow lift may be paired with an eyelid surgery and a facelift. To learn if you are a good candidate for combining more than one procedure, speak to our experienced cosmetic surgeon today.
How much does brow lift surgery cost? Will my health insurance help cover the costs?
The expense of your brow lift surgery depends upon the specific type of procedure, whether you are combining procedures, your medical history, and a variety of other factors. The best way to know how much brow surgery will cost for you is to request a consultation with our surgeon. Read your health insurance policy to best understand what types of procedures are covered. While all policies are different, most do not cover cosmetic procedures. To completely understand your coverage, speak with your insurance company and your doctor.
Is brow lift surgery and recovery painful?
During the surgery itself, you will either be under local and intravenous anesthesia or general anesthesia. Either way, you will experience no pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, some patients experience pain or discomfort due to swelling. These symptoms will be treated by our medical team on a patient-to-patient basis to ensure comfort and healing.
How long do the results of a brow lift last?
The results of a brow lift depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the correction, the type of lift performed, the age of the patient, and the genetics of the patient. With that being said, many patients can expect to keep the results of their brow lift for up to ten years. Patients can maintain their results best by following their doctor’s guidance and continuing to regularly care for their face and skin.
Are there any risks associated with brow lifts?
Any surgery, no matter how minor, comes with the possibility of complications, including bleeding and infection. While the vast majority of brow lift patients do not report complications, in the past, some have experienced scarring, hair loss at the incision site, or forehead muscle damage. Feel free to discuss these possible risks with your doctor.
How much vacation time will I need to take for my brow lift?
Recovery is different for every patient. However, due to swelling, we recommend that our patients rest and heal for the first week after their surgery. Most patients resume non-strenuous activity within one to two weeks, and all activity within four to six weeks. When our patients return to their jobs often depends on the physical requirement of their work and their own comfort levels.
