There are natural changes to the face that come with aging. Genetics plays a role in how the skin ages; sun exposure is also a factor. Gravity comes into play as well. The result can be unsightly wrinkles and creases on the forehead. Fortunately, the field of cosmetic plastic surgery can restore a more youthful facial appearance. Our Beverly Hills brow lift can bring your face a far more relaxed fresh appearance.
Risks and Complications
The risks for lifting the brow line are minimal, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports. Some of the most common risks for this procedure include the following list:
- Possible numbness of the forehead following the procedure. Part of this is normal, but some may experience permanently diminished sensations.
- Some lose the ability to move the eyebrows or forehead. Often, additional procedures can correct this complication.
- Bleeding and Infection: Please see the section on recovery for more information about these risks.
- Permanent hair loss or thinning at the scar site of the incision. In most cases, the incision will be at the edge of the hairline; therefore, no hair growth will be affected.
