Browlift Surgery in Seattle Washington with William Portuese

Browlift Information - Before and After Photos

The brow Lift, or forehead Lift, can be performed in conjunction with any other type of facial cosmetic surgery. This surgery has two different approaches. The incisions can be made behind the hairline or at the hairline. Endoscopic forehead lifts are also performed for some patients. The technique involves 3-4 separate smaller incisions behind the hairline.

It is important to note that no hair will be shaved on top of the head to make the incisions. Through whichever incision is made, the skin is carefully lifted off the muscle and bone structures of the forehead, and the muscles are softened in the scowling area of the forehead.

Once the forehead is released from the eyebrow area, it is lifted and repositioned at a higher level, which elevates the eyebrows. Excess skin is removed, and the incision is meticulously closed with sutures. Drains are used to remove excess fluid and are removed 1-2 days after the surgery. Sensory nerve loss, also temporary, occurs along the incision line and on top of the scalp. Wide scarring and hair loss are complications that occur rarely and are usually avoided by not placing any tension on the skin.

Typically, this surgery will last approximately two hours. The patient will remain in the recovery room for one to two hours before being discharged.
