Browpexy involves a brow lift procedure paired with blepharoplasty to both lift the brows and correct brow asymmetry. By combining these surgeries, concerns of heavy, falling eyelids and the position of the brows are simultaneously addressed thereby avoiding multiple surgical procedures. Browpexy reduces redundant eyelid and opens up the eye by lifting the center and outer aspects of the brow. The overall result is a more refreshed and youthful appearance. A consultation with Dr. Lemckert, ENT – Facial Plastic Surgeon, will determine the appropriate surgical procedure to achieve your desired result.
Your safety and comfort are of our utmost priority. The procedure can be completed with local anesthetic and low level sedation but there is the option of general anesthetic for browpexy dependent on patient desire. The complete procedure requires just one to two hours. We pride ourselves on well-informed patients; you will feel prepared for what to expect prior to, throughout and following your browpexy procedure.
Light activities can be resumed after 48 hours while recovery from visible bruising and swelling can take up to two weeks. Eyes may feel sticky, dry, and itchy. Using cold compresses, prescribed pain medication, and keeping the head elevated are key to minimizing discomfort and aiding healing. Sometimes eye drops may be prescribed. Permanent stitches are removed after three to five days while self-absorbing stitches will dissolve on their own.
How It Works
To free the eyebrow from some of its attachments, a dissection is made over the bony portion of the eye socket. With hidden stitches, the underside of the eyebrow is stitched to the fibrous tissue covering the bone. The eyebrow is then lifted and secured with delicate sutures to the desired location. Healing from the procedure is generally quick and scarring is very inconspicuous.
