Annapolis Eyebrow Lift
Performed to correct drooping eyebrows, hooding over the eyes, forehead furrows, and frown lines between the eyebrows, a brow lift minimizes the signs of aging in the upper face. Women and men who choose an Annapolis brow lift at our practice enjoy how this procedure gives them a more alert, animated and youthful look.
Men and women typically consider a brow lift to reduce droopy brows, heavy eyelids or furrow lines above the nose. In order to properly determine the best course of action for each patient, all of our board-certified plastic surgeons utilize computer imaging to help patients understand their choices and plan for their desired results.
Brow Lift in the Annapolis, Maryland Area
A brow lift is usually performed with local anesthesia and IV sedation in the outpatient surgery center at our ambulatory surgical center. Typically, an overnight stay is not necessary.
Incisions for a brow lift will start at about the level of the ears and run across the top of the forehead in the hairline. It is not necessary to shave any hair for the procedure. Forehead skin is then carefully lifted so portions of muscle and excess tissue can be manipulated or removed.
For more information about the forehead or brow lift, please contact any of our plastic surgeons or schedule a consultation today. We’d be happy to answer any inquiries regarding the procedure or techniques involved.
Forehead Lift Recovery and Results
Directly after a forehead lift, patients go home with their head wrapped in dressings, which are removed in one or two days. Patients should expect minimal post-operative pain, which can easily be controlled by prescription medication. Most swelling and discoloration will subside within two weeks and full activity can usually be resumed in two weeks, as well. Our nursing assistants also offer a complimentary post-surgical shampoo, which is designed to enhance the healing process.
Those choosing a brow lift should expect a reduction of wrinkles and drooping in the forehead area. The brow should appear more natural, younger and well rested. Frown lines that often appear between the eyes may be greatly reduced as well.

Brow Lift Insurance Considerations
A forehead lift is considered to be a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. Each patient is responsible for payment of the surgical costs incurred.
