What is a Brow Lift? 

A brow lift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates and refreshes the brow, eliminating sagging skin and reducing lines and wrinkles to achieve a more youthful, firm, and refreshed appearance. During your brow lift in Portland, Dr. Vila will lift the skin and muscles of your brow using small incisions. He will smooth the skin and bring the eyebrows to a more natural resting place instead of overhanging the eyes. The result is a more youthful, rested, and friendly appearance. 

Is a Brow Lift the Right Option for Me?

When it comes to signs of aging in the face — especially the upper areas of the face and forehead — there are sometimes multiple options that can help you to turn back the clock and enjoy a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Dr. Vila will work with you to pick out the procedure that’ll bring you in line with your goals, during your consultation.

You’re likely a great candidate for a brow lift if you’re dealing with any of the following issues:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Creases in the forehead
  • Sagging skin
  • Angry appearance
  • Haggard look
  • Loose, lax skin

What Happens During My Brow Lift Procedure?

Brow lifts are performed in the operating room, and can often be performed using what’s known as twilight anesthesia. The length of time for your procedure will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the treatment area, the severity of the issues Dr. Vila is addressing, and so forth. He’ll talk you through exactly what to expect during your consultations, so you’ll be fully prepared and comfortable on the day of your procedure.

Depending on your individual anatomy, various approaches might be used. How high your hairline is, where your brow is descending, and previous surgeries can all determine which procedure might work best for you. Under a light sedation, similar to a colonoscopy or dental procedure, Dr. Vila will perform your procedure while you rest comfortably, then wake up in the recovery room.

What Will My Recovery Process Be Like?

The brow lift is relatively minor, and your discomfort — some swelling and tenderness — will be limited to the first day or two, and easily controlled with some pain medication. 

Some swelling and bruising will resolve in most people in ten days, so we recommend you take it easy.

If Dr. Vila uses Endotines, which are placed under the scalp, these can take some time to dissolve as your scalp heals and can be tender to touch for several weeks after the procedure.

You can return to most normal activities within a few days, but you’ll need to refrain from vigorous activity for at least a few weeks. Dr. Vila will always provide detailed aftercare instructions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from your recovery process. He’ll also set up follow-up appointments to ensure you’re healing up properly.
