TRICHOPHYTIC FOREHEAD BROW LIFT
At the start of the procedure itself, you will be given an anesthetic. Your plastic surgeon will make long incisions across the forehead, in the hairline. A certain amount of skin will be lifted away from the tissues of the forehead. The excess skin will be removed, and then the incisions will be closed using medical stitches and staples.
As some skin from the forehead is removed, the brows will be pulled upwards to achieve an attractive position. The surgeon may use zig-zag incisions to help disguise them into your natural hairline.
The amount of skin removed and the exact incisions made depend upon the patient’s desired eyebrow arch and lift. As the skin on the forehead is lifted upwards, it also eliminates a lot of the excess skin from the upper eyelids, effectively getting rid of frown lines.
The results of the trichophytic brow lift are permanent, and patients instantly look more energetic and youthful.
The trichophytic brow lift addresses the entire forehead lines in comparison to the direct brow lift, reducing wrinkles in the forehead as well.
Am I a good candidate for a forehead brow lift?
If the outsides of your eyebrows sag to create a sad or tired expression and your upper eyelid has too much excess skin that makes you look like you are frowning, you can consider the trichophytic brow lift. You should be in good physical health and not have any condition that might result in unpredictable cardiovascular function or serious allergic reactions. Please discuss with Dr. Bautista to find out if you are eligible for trichophytic brow lift.
What is the recovery time?
After your brow lift, you will need to ensure that you take the proper post-operative care measures as recommended.
Patients are advised to not bend over for the next three months minimum, avoid clothing that needs to be pulled over the head, and avoid any other kind of unnecessary stress to the target area. You will also need to avoid excessive facial expressions in the first few weeks.
