Wrinkled Forehead? Furrowed Brows? A Brow Lift Could Be the Answer. By Anya Kishinevsky, M.D. on October 15, 2022

Youthful, lifted eyebrowsIf a sagging or drooping brow leaves you looking tired or older than your years, relax. A brow lift from Dr. Anya Kishinevsky Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is just what the doctor ordered. Visit Dr. Anya Kishinevsky and her team in one of their offices in Norwalk or Fairfield, CT. The mini brow lift procedure the practice offers may be able to restore your youthful appearance.

Am I a Brow Lift Candidate?

It is important from the beginning of your research to understand that good health is one of the best indicators of positive results from plastic surgery procedures. The mini brow lift works best if you have mild to moderate skin sagging and other signs of aging. If you have more severe sagging issues, a full brow lift may provide better results.

Combining Brow Lift Surgery and Eyelid Surgery

A mini brow lift does exactly what the name implies: it focuses on the skin in the eyebrow area to lift sagging skin and minimize eyebrow frown lines. Your plastic surgeon can handle other signs of aging in the brow area, too. She often combines a brow lift procedure with an eyelid lift when that dual course of action will better accomplish your beauty goals. We also offer full facelift surgery and other options for more comprehensive results.

What to Expect During the Procedure

You can relax to know that Dr. Kishinevsky delivers plastic surgery results under anesthesia which means the procedure itself is painless. The staff will observe and monitor your condition while you come out of the anesthesia. This procedure takes place on an outpatient basis so you will finish your recovery at home the same day.

Once you are comfortable, the surgeon will make tiny incisions in the skin that are hidden in the hairline. Smaller incisions also mean smaller scars. In other words, the less invasive technique produces beautiful, natural-looking results.

During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will separate the delicate layers of tissue in your forehead. This allows for comprehensive smoothing to eliminate even deep-set wrinkles and frown lines. By gently pulling the skin tighter, the surgeon can also lift the eyebrows for a more alert, youthful expression. Finally, the closing sutures are hidden in the hairline out of sight.

The Recovery Process

How long the recovery process lasts and the intensity of side effects is largely individual. As a general rule, you may feel some pain and experience swelling and mild bruising during the first week of the surgery. Most side effects disappear within two weeks after surgery. At that point, you will start to see your final results.
