Who is a good candidate for brow lift surgery?

Many patients are unaware that they need a brow lift. They complain about the droopiness of their eyes and assume that they are in need of eyelid surgery. However, all they may be requiring is a brow lift because it is the brow that may be sagging. This is especially true of patients who have had the eyelid surgery in the past. Their brow may need to be addressed, instead of the eyelid. Such patients sometimes have wrinkles on the forehead and brows that are sagging. When the brow is lifted manually, especially it’s a lateral part, their youthful appearance returns. These are the ideal candidates for a brow lift.

good candidate for brow lift surgery

Dr. Kwan has performed brow lifts on patients in age groups varying from their 20s to their 70s. Therefore, it is not necessarily true that a young person cannot be a candidate for this procedure. Some patients are born with a very low brow and low riding brows. They may be good candidates for an early brow lift. Other patients, however, may not require a brow lift until they are in their 40s, 50s or 60s.

As with any surgery, complications are present with a brow lift procedure too. So, prior to undergoing the procedure, it’s important for patients to understand the risks. Although brow lift surgery is a very safe procedure, there have been cases where patients have experienced certain complications. For example, some patients have experienced a loss of feeling in the areas where the incisions are made during surgery. In most situations, this sensation-loss is temporary. However, in some patients, the sense of feeling may not return quickly. Another rare complication of the brow lift surgery is nerve damage which can cause a paralyzing effect around the area of the eyebrows and lower part of the forehead. Call 201 947 3636 to schedule an appointment at the ManhattanFlushing, or New Jersey office.
