Dr. Toriumi will talk with you about what results you should reasonably expect from the surgery. You might also chat with him about whether you can achieve the best results by combining a brow lift with other procedures like a facelift or neck lift. Other nonsurgical treatments like laser resurfacing or a chemical peel, when combined with a brow lift, can further enhance your appearance.
Dr. Toriumi will use one of two common brow lift methods. The conventional incision method involves making a few very small undetectable incisions within the hairline, across the top of the scalp, or just above the brow. Another option uses an endoscope, which requires a smaller incision. Endoscopy has the benefit of leaving smaller incision scars.
To expedite healing and minimal discomfort, please follow Dr. Toriumi's explicit directions. Dr. Toriumi might advise you to stay away from certain strenuous activities for a little while as well. If needed, Dr. Toriumi can prescribe medication to ease discomfort.
