Are you a good candidate for a brow lift?

With age, it is common to begin seeing wrinkles on your forehead. Unfortunately, these frown lines can make you look angry without meaning to. The sagging skin could make you seem tired, as the upper eyelids are hooded by the eyebrows. If this sounds like you and you have realistic expectations from surgery, you are an ideal candidate.

What can I expect during and after my procedure?

Due to Dr. Bohley’s advanced surgical expertise and outstanding surgical record, the risk of complications is very small.

Most surgeons use any of the two incisions for the brow lift. An endoscopic lift is where the surgeon uses an endoscope for adjusting tissue and muscle through tiny incisions on your forehead. The other is a coronal incision, where an incision is made from ear to ear within the hair-bearing skin. This incision allows for clear vision to Dr. Bohley when he is adjusting muscle and tissue.

What will be my recovery from the brow lift?

Recovery from a brow lift varies from patient to patient, but most return to normal activity within three to four weeks. The sutures and staples are removed within a week post-surgery. Most patients near Vancouver, Washington enjoy rapid recoveries and remarkable results under Dr. Bohley’s comforting care. You may feel reduced sensation in your scalp and some numbness for up to a year post surgery.

What will be my results like?

Once the incisions in the scalp and hairline heal completely, you will be able to see your final results. This will be about six months after surgery. Even though age will affect your results in some years, the severity of the frown lines and wrinkles won’t be the same. Protect your skin from sun damage and maintain a healthy lifestyle to enjoy your results permanently.

Dr. Bohley offers unsurpassed patient care to individuals who wish to undergo a brow lift. After the recovery is completed, most patients enjoy both a beautifully refreshed appearance and a higher level of self-esteem. Have questions? Please feel free to contact us today!
