Study Says Patients Who Have Had A Brow Lift Will Recommend itPosted on June 5, 2017
A brow lift is a procedure with overwhelmingly high patient satisfaction rates. According to a recent online article studies revealed that most patients would recommend the procedure to others. The survey goes as far as to state that patients would have the procedure done all over again. Research that was conducted in Germany and subsequently published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery Journal, reviewed patients who had undergone cosmetic surgery brow lift procedures at University Hospital Rechts der Isar of the Munich Technical University. The procedures were carried out between 1994 and 2007 and were followed up to three years after the procedure. Researchers reviewed cases of primarily women and slightly less than 63% of those surveyed stated they would definitely or more likely to have the brow lift performed again. Close to the same number but also recommended to a family member or friend. According to the article medical experts state that patient to choose a for head lift over more noninvasive wrinkle procedures like Botox make this decision primarily for a longer and more dramatic effect. They do point out that injectables have virtually no recovery time whereas a brow lift will entail a couple of weeks of recovery time. Dr. Kim cautions patients that choosing between Botox and a brow lift is not in the patients best interest. They are two different procedures with two different expected outcomes. Injectables like Botox or Dysport are temporary and will weaken the muscle thus softening forehead lines and wrinkles. A brow lift or forehead lift removes excess skin therefore it actually tightens the skin lifting the brow for more dramatic and long-lasting result. It is important for patients to understand that a brow lift will not correct droopy eyelids. The brow lift is often combined with upper eyelid blepharoplasty which will improve drooping eyelids and create a more youthful appearance. Patients who are considering a brow lift or blepharoplasty are encouraged to contact Dr. Kim and schedule a consultation.
