Brow Lift – Forehead Lift – Baton Rouge, LA
BROW LIFT / FOREHEAD LIFT OVERVIEW
All faces are not the same, as in, they all age differently. And while we may still feel young on the inside, our skin and facial aging can give our years away, or worse, make us look a lot older than we really are. Aging skin and other facial signs of aging is usually a combination of various factors, which include our lifestyle, genetics, exposure to the sun, the environment and other factors, all of which contribute to our aged looking face. These signs are sometimes more evident on the upper face area particularly, the forehead and across the brows. This is where the brow lift and forehead lift become useful.
A drooping brow can give off an appearance of either a sad or grumpy expression, or fatigue, all of which aren’t really good for anyone’s appearance. Baton Rouge cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Taylor Theunissen performs brow and forehead lift surgery to help restore a smoother forehead contour and more uplifted brows, giving you a more youthful appearance. You may want purely upper facial rejuvenation procedures (brow lift, eyelid lift) or you may be best off with a mini-facelift, full facelift or neck lift or combined procedures.

DR. THEUNISSEN’S APPROACH
The technique which is used during this procedure depends on the amount of work required in a particular area of the face. It also depends on the patient’s skin condition and the location of their hairline. Classic incisions can be used on the upper eyelid. Another type is the coronal incision, which runs from one ear to the other right underneath a person’s hairline. There is also a less invasive technique for a brow lift called the endoscopic brow lift, which leaves minimal scarring.
DURING AND AFTER SURGERY
A brow lift procedure is normally performed under general anesthesia. The procedure which is conducted by Baton Rouge Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Theunissen, lasts around two hours after which patients are sent home and advised to limit the amount of strenuous activities for a few days. While some swelling and bruising should be expected after the procedure, it should subside with time and the patients will be able to go back to their normal routine within a week. After the procedure it is normal for the patient to feel that their face is not symmetrical, but the results of the procedure should appear within a few months time and the patient will start to feel a lot younger with their new rejuvenated appearance.
BROW LIFT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Botox is a nonsurgical procedure which is used to take out the lines and wrinkles on the forehead. While a botox procedure will do the job of smoothening out the lines on the forehead or around the eyes, it will not be of any help when trying to correct the drooping skin around the forehead or around the eyes. A botox is worth trying out, but is usually depends on the patient’s individual case. There are many people who benefit by doing both the procedures in order to attain the results they seek. Your surgeon will be the best person to advice you on that matter
Dr. Theunissen will initially go through your case and suggest the technique which will be most beneficial to you.

Only after a proper evaluation is made will Dr. Theunissen recommend the procedure. While all the various procedures will raise the brow and smooth the forehead, some can even lower a high hairline and improve facial balance and harmony.
