Brow and forehead lifts at the Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK are common cosmetic surgery procedures that raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. These procedures can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries, such as face lift or cheek augmentation.
Heavy drooping of the eyebrows can give you a tired or perhaps angry look. A brow and forehead lift in Tulsa, OK can reverse this effect, giving you a more youthful appearance and a brighter, happier look.
Newer techniques now allow us to perform brow and forehead lifting through small incisions in the scalp by using an endoscope and specialized instruments. This accelerates the healing process.
Medications are administered either by intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Special surgical tools are placed through small incisions made within the hairline allowing the tissue and muscle beneath to be repositioned, altered, or removed.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur; however, they should subside within a few weeks. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks.
Your insurance company may pay for part or for the full cost of surgery, provided the procedure is performed as a result of visual impairment. Because every insurance carrier is different, it is recommended that you check with your own insurance company to determine the level of coverage.
If you are considering a brow or forehead lift, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons in Tulsa. At the time of your consultation, we will go over all your concerns and questions so that we can better educate you about the procedure.
