A furrowed, low positioned brow is often associated with older age.
However, for some, this may be due to environmental factors, stress, or even genetics. Brow lifts can reduce the appearance of a low brow regardless of the cause. In Annapolis MD brow lifts are performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Namita Murthy. You can expect a younger appearance and a more sophisticated look following your brow lift surgery with Dr. Murthy.
A brow lift is a cosmetic operation to raise the brows. By lifting the soft tissue and skin, it enhances the forehead, the brow, and the entire eye area. This procedure will correct a sagging brow, remove deep furrows, and restore the upper one-third of the face to a smoother, more youthful appearance.
There are three types of brow lifts. A classic lift uses a continuous cut starting at your ears' level and going up around your hairline.
The surgeon will work to prevent a noticeable scar, depending on where the hairline is. An endoscopic lift is another option. The surgeon makes a few shorter cuts to your scalp in this procedure. In one of the cuts, they insert a scope—a small camera at the end of a thin tube—and use another device inserted in an additional cut to make the required adjustments.
A temporal brow lift requires incisions that are significantly longer than an endoscopic lift and is most often performed in tandem with eyelid surgery. Just above each temple, behind the hairline, incisions about one inch long are made.
Depending on the type of brow lift you choose, your recovery time will vary. After a the procedure, patients usually experience very little pain, although it is normal to feel mild discomfort and a feeling of tightness around the brow.
During the first ten days or so after surgery, swelling and bruises are most common and are usually resolved after about two weeks. Dr. Murthy provides her Annapolis brow lift patients with detailed instructions on how to care for their skin following surgery. Following these instructions is very important. It can reduce the risk of complications and improve recovery times. Dr. Murthy is also available to her patients if any questions arise during the recovery process.
How Will I Look?
Your brow lift surgery results are instantly apparent. Post-surgical swelling will resolve with time, and incision lines will disappear.
Satisfaction with your new image as you recover from surgery can continue to develop as the healing process continues. In the next few months, the final results of your surgery will surface. Ongoing sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing sun damage.

A person who is in good general health with no medical problems that preclude general anesthesia is the best candidate for a brow lift in Annapolis, MD. Patients should have reasonable expectations of what can be achieved for them by the treatment. Since blood supply may be inhibited by smoking and tobacco products, non-smokers have a stronger response to surgical procedures.
Yes, combining treatments such as a brow lift with a facelift, eyelid surgery, or other similar treatments is preferred. Doing so can be cost-effective and avoid separate recovery times, and deliver more impressive results.
The results of your procedure are semi-permanent. You will look younger and more comfortable for years afterward. The effects of less intrusive brow lifts may not last as long as those of more conventional procedures, such as the endoscopic process. Your forehead will still change as you continue to age.
A minimally invasive option to determine if you are a good candidate for a brow lift is a non-surgical brow lift with neuromodulators such as Botox, Xeomin or Dysport. The results are a reduction of fine lines between eyebrows and around the eyes, as well as a brightening and enlargement of the eyes. You will appear more awake and refreshed. The results can last between three to four months with no downtime. If you like the results, you may want to consider a surgical brow lift as a more permanent solution.
