What Can I Expect During My Forehead Lift Consultation?
During your consultation with Dr. Enzer, he will listen to your concerns and conduct a thorough examination of your forehead and brow to let you know what the best surgical option will be for you and what you can expect in terms of results. In some cases, this procedure is accompanied by blepharoplasty surgery.
Your consultation will involve a discussion of your complete medical history, including any medications you are currently taking and any allergies you may have. Once the consultation is complete, he will be able to create a surgical plan for your brow-lift procedure.
Forehead Lift Before & Afters
Forehead and Brow Lifts
Dr. Enzer offers a variety of brow and forehead-lifting techniques, including the newest endoscopic procedure. Dr. Enzer helped pioneer the minimally invasive endoscopic forehead lift procedure and develop the technique to where it is today. Dr. Enzer has taught his techniques to hundreds of other doctors, both nationally and internationally.
Oftentimes, these procedures are performed as a same-day outpatient surgery. At the start of the procedure, anesthesia is administered to ensure patient comfort. This may involve general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
Following this, incisions are made to allow access to the underlying tissues. For the endoscopic brow lift, three to five small incisions are made behind the hairline. Once these have been created, an endoscope is carefully inserted into one of the incisions.
An endoscope is a small tool with a camera and a light on it. This transmits images onto an external monitor in the operating room. These detailed images allow Dr. Enzer to make changes that are extremely precise.
Another tool is then inserted into another incision to tighten excess skin and loose muscle tissue. Finally, the incisions are closed with sutures. A laser treatment may also be utilized to minimize post-surgical bruising and swelling.
Recovery After a Forehead Lift
Once your forehead lift is complete, you will need to take time to relax and heal. This will involve carefully following the results of Dr. Enzer in order to minimize post-surgical complications.
During the recovery period, it will be necessary to take around one week off from work to focus on healing. Strenuous exercise and sports should be avoided in order to ensure that the healing process is going smoothly. It will also be vital that you avoid heavy sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect your temporarily weakened tissues.
A follow-up visit will be necessary so that Dr. Enzer can remove the sutures and check on recovery and healing. The beneficial effects of the brow lift are long-lasting and will be apparent as soon as swelling has completely ameliorated.
