Correct Drooping Eyebrows With A Brow Lift
Low- sloped eyebrows can give your forehead and face a tired, sad expression. With a lateral brow lift from Dr. Rifai, your eyebrows are subtly lifted into a more natural position, making you look content and well rested.
Lateral Brow Lift- Overview
A lateral brow lift takes approximately 1 ½ hour to perform. Dr. Rifai will make an incision behind the forehead line above both eyebrows. The muscles controlling the outer area of the eyebrow is released and re-positioned into a more naturally appealing position.
Lateral Brow Lift- Recovery
Recovery from a lateral brow lift takes approximately 1 week. There is typically very little discomfort following this procedure. You may experience some swelling and bruising, however this will likely be minimal and is easily controlled by cold compresses. A week after your procedure, any sutures will be removed.
Dr. Rifai has years of experience performing cosmetic surgery procedures and can discuss all aspects of a lateral brow lift during your consultation.
