After years of dealing with congestion I finally made an appointment with Dr. Seeley in May. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable from the minute I met him. In September Dr. Seeley and his team preformed the balloon sinuplasty procedure on me, which has been successful! Even though I struggled a bit with the procedure, they were so gentle and kind throughout. Follow ups have been great and quick and the whole team is friendly and nice. I actually enjoy coming in to my appointments! Thank you Dr. Seeley and team!!

My experience going to see Dr. Brook Seeley and getting a procedure was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had! From his staff at the desk, to Kim the coordinator, all the way up to Dr. Seelwy himself, I had a great experience even though I was so nervous and not knowing what to expect. He was so beyond professional, kind, friendly, and took all the time in the world to explain everything step by step, answering each and every one of my questions, and not pushing me to get the procedure or any of that fluff that other doctors do. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Seeley.

What Is a Brow Lift?

brow lift, or forehead lift, restores a youthful appearance to the upper face. This procedure concentrates specifically on the soft tissue over the eyes: the eyebrows and forehead. During a forehead lift, excess skin is removed, sagging is corrected, deep creases are smoothed, and contours are refreshed. Although a forehead lift treats the upper third of the face, patients often see improvement in their overall facial appearance from the balance it brings to their facial features.

Surgery Day: What to Expect from Forehead Lift Surgery in Farmington & Hartford, CT

On the day of your brow lift surgery, you’ll be warmly welcomed at our off-site state-of-the-art surgical center. After a smooth check-in process, you’ll be guided to the pre-operative area to prepare for the procedure. For optimal surgical outcomes and to minimize the risk of infection, we advise patients to cleanse their face and hair with a prescribed antibacterial soap.

Before the surgery begins, your dedicated surgeon will join you in the pre-op area for a final review of the treatment objectives and to provide a comprehensive overview of the post-operative care. This is also the time when, if necessary, precise surgical markings will be made to guide the procedure.

The brow lift surgery typically spans one to two hours. However, the duration might be extended if other facial rejuvenation treatments are done as well. The specific technique employed for your brow lift—whether it’s an endoscopic lift, a coronal lift, or another method—will be determined by your unique facial structure and the goals established during your consultation.

During the procedure, the brow’s skin is meticulously elevated, underlying muscles are adjusted, and any surplus skin is delicately excised. The final step involves sealing the incision with either metal clips or fine sutures, ensuring minimal scarring. Our objective is to achieve results that radiate natural beauty. We pride ourselves on tailoring each procedure to resonate with the individual’s unique facial anatomy, ensuring outcomes that not only enhance but also harmonize with their overall appearance.

Recovery After Brow Lift Surgery

Our forehead lift patients can recover in the comfort of their own homes. After surgery, you’ll spend one to two hours in our recovery area before returning home. Make sure you arrange for someone to drive you and stay with you for a couple of days. We’ll call that night to make sure you’re doing well, and you’ll come to our office for a follow-up check a day or two later.

Bandaging may be used after a forehead lift, but not always. If we use bandaging, we’ll remove it one to three days after your procedure. Sutures are removed about a week after surgery. Patients can resume hair washing after a few days.

Bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort are common and expected. Most patients won’t need prescription pain medications, although we do provide them if needed. You may feel numbness or itching around the incision site.

Most patients return to work after two weeks. Visible signs of surgery are usually gone in about three weeks. Limit strenuous activities for several weeks, until you’re cleared to resume these activities by your surgeon. Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by the ease of their recovery experience after a brow lift.

Frequently Asked Questions About Brow Lift Surgery

Like all surgical procedures, a forehead lift comes with potential risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, nerve damage, and anesthesia complications. It’s also possible to experience temporary numbness, itching, or hair loss at the incision sites. Some patients might notice asymmetry in the brow position or experience prolonged swelling. It’s crucial to follow all post-operative instructions and attend follow-up appointments to monitor healing and address any concerns promptly.

Choosing a reputable and experienced surgeon, like our team at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, significantly reduces the likelihood of complications. We prioritize patient education, so during your consultation, we’ll discuss these potential risks in detail and answer any questions you may have, ensuring you’re well-informed and confident in your decision to proceed with the surgery.

The cost of a brow lift can vary based on several factors, including the surgeon’s experience, the complexity of the procedure, geographic location, and the surgical facility’s fees. Additionally, the type of brow lift technique chosen and any additional procedures or treatments combined with the brow lift can influence the overall brow lift cost. It’s essential to prioritize quality and expertise over cost alone. During your consultation at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, we will provide a detailed brow lift cost breakdown tailored to your specific needs and treatment plan.

Most patients describe a tightness sensation after surgery with limited discomfort. The majority of patients do not require anything more than Tylenol for post-surgical soreness. Select patients may require narcotic pain medication, but rarely is this needed for more than a few days.

The procedure provides long-lasting effects. Your forehead lift results will depend on your anatomy, genetics, environment, and lifestyle. Often, the procedure improves appearance for a lifetime. Ask us about non-surgical treatments to maintain your results.

The procedure is often performed in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, eyelid lift or neck lift. Complementary non-surgical procedures including Botox, chemical peels, and dermal fillers can enhance and maintain your results.

If you’re thinking about a brow lift but aren’t sure if it is right for you, come in for a consultation. We would love to discuss the procedure in more depth with you. At a consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and reservations, ensuring we create a treatment plan that will be safe and effective for you. If a brow lift isn’t right, we’ll work with you to find other options. Generally, the best candidates for the surgery are in good health and have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure.

A typical surgery takes approximately 1 to 2 hours, depending on the extent of the procedure and any additional treatments being performed simultaneously.
