Transgender Brow Lift Candidates
You may be a good candidate for a transgender brow lift if:
- You wish to achieve a more masculine or feminine appearance
- You wish to lift drooping brows
- You want to minimize wrinkles on the upper third of the face
- You are physically healthy and able to heal properly following surgery
- You have realistic expectations for the procedure
- You can abstain from taking blood-thinning medications like Aspirin for a period before your surgery
During your initial consultation, Dr. Barone will examine your face and review your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for a brow lift. She will also discuss your goals at length to determine if a brow lift or a combination of other procedures are the best way to achieve the look you desire.
During surgery, Dr. Barone can refine the contours of the brow to create a more feminine or masculine appearance. She can also smooth the forehead skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
On the day of your surgery, anesthesia will be administered to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Barone will make short incisions near the hairline. Next, she will gently adjust underlying facial tissues to achieve the enhancement you desire. Any excess tissue will be trimmed away. Finally, Dr. Barone will close your incisions with sutures. This process usually takes about two hours to complete.
You will need to wear bandages for a period after surgery. Dr. Barone will meet with you for a follow-up appointment after surgery to make sure you are healing properly. Most patients can return to normal activity and work after about a week. Dr. Barone will provide explicit instructions to help you heal properly and experience the greatest possible benefits of your surgery.
Benefits of a Brow Lift
Brow lift surgery offers many benefits, especially for transgender patients. These can include:
- A younger, more alert appearance
- A more feminine or masculine appearance
- A smoother brow
- Correction of drooping or sagging skin
- Improved vision, if the brow is contributing to sagging eyelids
- Boosted confidence in your appearance
Dr. Barone often combines this procedure with rhinoplasty (nose surgery) or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) for excellent comprehensive results.
