Forehead Lift in Cleveland, OH
The normal process of facial aging causes skin around our eyebrows and forehead to sag or droop. This affects the entire appearance of the face and can make a person appear tired or angry. A brow lift raises the eyebrows to a natural position and diminishes aging lines above the eyes and between the brows. This enhances the beauty of the face and opens up the eyes, making an individual look more awake, alert, younger and energetic.

Who is a Candidate for Brow Lift or Forehead Lift Surgery?
Men and women in good health whose eyebrows and eyelids have begun to sag as a result of aging may be excellent candidates for a brow lift of forehead lift. For some patients a brow lift may enhance the results of an eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty. Patients who would benefit from both procedures often have a heavy, tired look to their eyes that would not be fully corrected with blepharoplasty alone.
How is Brow Lift or Forehead Lift Surgery Performed?
Brow lift or forehead lift surgery is performed under moderate sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference. Most brow and forehead lifts are performed using a minimally invasive endoscopic technique, using small scopes instead of creating large incisions. Small scopes are placed through incisions hidden within the hairline. The muscle is gently lifted, which elevates the brow and reduces wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes. Endoscopic technique allows Dr. Harmych to reduce recovery time and minimize pain and bruising.
What is the Recovery like from Brow Lift or Forehead Lift Surgery?
Forehead and Brow Lift is performed on an outpatient basis with most patients returning to the comfort of their own home within a few hours.

Full physical activity may be resumed in 3-4 weeks. Bruising and swelling are reduced and recovery time shortened with the use of homeopathic herbal supplements.
