Dr. Clemenza performs brow and forehead lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges on the forehead, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
An incision is generally made across the top of the head behind the hairline. The forehead and brows are elevated and excess skin is removed. The flap is then sutured.
Antibiotics may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur, which should subside within a few weeks. Our doctor will recomend ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. Women will be allowed to use eye cosmetics two weeks after surgery. You can proceed with your normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
