Dr. Landis performs Brow and Forehead Lifts to raise eyebrows and reduce ridges and furrows on the forehead, thus creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.
There are many different types of forehead and brow lifts. Forehead and brow lifts are done to raise the eyebrows to re-drape the forehead and upper eyelid skin to correct visual field obstruction. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
Analgesic medications may be prescribed for several days following surgery. Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur, they should subside within a few weeks. Our doctor will prescribe ice compresses and eye exercises to reduce swelling and regain mobility. You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.
Your insurance company may pay for part or all of the cost of surgery if the procedure is performed as a result of visual impairment. Because every insurance carrier is different, we recommended that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Landis and our staff. We may refer you to your ophthalmologist for visual field testing to document your particular level of impairment. Our insurance coordinators will work with your insurance company to determine the level of coverage, and requirements for insurance authorization.
