Dr. Vila offers the brow lift procedure to patients in Portland and the surrounding areas, enabling you to walk back the clock and enjoy a refreshed, and rejuvenated appearance, restoring that youthful glow and your quality of life right along with it. During your pre operative consultation, you’ll work closely with Dr. Vila — he’ll examine you carefully, and you’ll work together to come up with a customized treatment plan that determines exactly which procedure will be the best way to address your specific concerns and unite you with your ultimate cosmetic goals.

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.

The Results You Deserve

Dr. Vila isn’t here to simply complete procedures and move onto the next patient. He’s here to work with you and craft the results that you know you deserve, so you can absolutely love what you see when you look in the mirror, every single day.

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. 

There will be some swelling and bruising that resolves in most people by 10 days, during which time we’ll recommend that 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 get back to most normal activities within a few days, but you’ll need to refrain from any vigorous activity for at least a few weeks. Dr. Vila will always provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from your recovery process. He’ll also set up follow up appointments, to make sure you’re healing up properly.

Are there any Risks or Possible Complications?

Before surgery, Dr. Vila will go over the possible risks of surgery with you in detail. Rest assured, his meticulous attention to detail and conservative approach make it unlikely that you will experience any complications. All surgeries come with inherent risks, but most patients find the beautiful, youthful outcome they achieve with brow lift surgery to be worth it.

Risks of a brow lift may include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • An elevated hairline
  • Dry eyes
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Temporary numbness
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Poor wound healing
  • Poor cosmetic result
