A Brow Lift Can Help You Achieve a More Youthful Appearance
Do you desire a smooth, youthful forehead and defined eyebrows? Are you troubled by wrinkles or sagging skin on your forehead? Dr. Peter Fisher is a skilled brow lift surgeon in San Antonio, TX. During your surgery, he can raise drooping skin to give you a younger, refreshed appearance. At San Antonio Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Fisher uses advanced techniques, honed by years of experience. Whenever possible, he will perform a lateral brow lift, which is less invasive than a traditional forehead lift. For female patients, he is also very careful to preserve a natural, feminine brow arch. Performed on its own or in conjunction with a face lift, a brow lift can have stunning results, both for your appearance and for your self-confidence.
Are You a Brow Lift Candidate?
A lateral brow lift may be appropriate for you if you are concerned by cosmetic flaws, such as:
- Sagging skin in your forehead
- Hooded eyes due to loose skin
- Horizontal creases
- Drooping eyebrows
- A perpetually sad or tired look
A brow lift may also be appropriate if you are going to undergo a facelift, and you wish to address the upper portion of your face as well. For any type of facial plastic surgery, you should still have a certain degree of skin elasticity. Although the procedure can often benefit older patients, most brow lift candidates are in their 40s or 50s with sufficient skin elasticity. To be considered for any type of surgery, you should be in good overall health. Dr. Fisher will consider any skin conditions, autoimmune diseases, bleeding disorders, or other chronic conditions before recommending you for the procedure. In addition, smoking can decrease your ability to heal. Candidates should be willing to not smoke before their surgery and during recovery in order to avoid complications.
Brow Lift Surgery
Before performing surgery, your doctor will discuss your goals during a consultation. With this information, he can then plan a procedure to meet your needs and expectations. Often, Dr. Fisher will include a brow lift as part of his full face lift package. His lateral brow lift procedure primarily addresses the outer edges of your forehead, and requires smaller incisions and less recovery time than a full forehead lift. However, if you do require more extensive rejuvenation, he can perform a full lift.
Dr. Fisher will perform your brow lift under general anesthesia. When you are ready, he will create subtle incisions in your hairline in the area around your temples. Dr. Fisher can then remove any excess fat deposits and sagging tissue. He will then pull the skin taut to raise your brows and give your forehead a firmer look. With his attention to detail, Dr. Fisher will make sure to maintain the normal curvature of your brow and your full range of facial expressions.

Brow Lift Recovery
Dr. Fisher uses minimally invasive techniques, so most brow lift surgeries are outpatient procedures. Nevertheless, you will need to rest at home following the treatment to protect your results and to speed healing. You may notice some swelling, bruising, tingling, and inflammation in your forehead. These sensations are normal and can be minimized with ice packs, medication, and plenty of rest. You will also need to wear compression bandages for several days to promote healing and to help your skin settle in its new position.
You should plan to take a week to 10 days off from work, and you should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately two weeks. Dr. Fisher will schedule you for follow-up appointments in order to monitor your recovery. At these visits, he will also remove your stitches and provide guidelines for returning to your normal routine. When post-operative care instructions are followed precisely, you should enjoy an easy recovery, virtually invisible scarring, and a beautiful final result.
