As the body ages, it will lose elasticity and fullness. Nowhere is this more obvious than on the face. As the face ages, it loses collagen, which is a protein that acts as glue to hold the skeletal bones together. It also fills out the skin over the face. As collagen depletes, it will give a more hollowed out appearance to the features, as well as increasing lines on the face. Such lines can be particularly prominent on the forehead because it takes up the entire upper third of the face. These lines give the face a worn, aged look. However, there is a solution to get rid of lines on the forehead and make the face look refreshed and youthful. Dr. Paul Pin recommends a browlift, or forehead lift, procedure to treat a sagging, wrinkled forehead.

Browlift Cost

Dr. Pin's fees for a browlift procedure range between $4,200 and $5,000. This fee is all-inclusive and covers the fees for Dr. Pin, the anesthesiologist, and the surgical facility. Prices may vary depending on the extent of work to be done and whether or not the browlift is combined with another procedure, such as an eyelid lift.

There are a variety of ways to pay for the cosmetic procedure. Dr. Pin's office accepts cash, check, and all major credit cards. Patients may also wish to look into medical financing through a company such as CareCredit, which offers loans ranging from six months to 24 months. The financing plan works similar to that of a credit card. As long as each monthly installment is paid on time, no late fees will be applied. Applying is easy, and can often be completed when patients come in for their initial consultation. Dr. Pin's staff will be more than happy to help patients through the process.

In some cases, such as for reconstructive procedures due to injury, health insurance will cover the costs of surgery. In such cases, Dr. Pin's staff can help patients gather all necessary documentation to file a claim.

Brow Lift Procedure

In a browlift procedure, a series of small incisions are made just above the hairline right around the forehead. The skin and underlying tissue are lifted away from the face, pulled tight, sutured back to the forehead, and the excess is removed. The procedure can be done on an outpatient basis and generally takes one to two hours, depending on the extent of work that is done.

Most patients can resume normal activities within a week of the procedure. The most common side effects are swelling and bruising around the incision line. This should last for about a week. Ice, cold compresses, and taking the herb Arnica montana will reduce the amount and duration of bleeding and swelling.

There is no reason to accept looking older due to the process of aging. A browlift can take years off the face, while still leaving it looking natural. Dr. Pin offers many financing options to pay for a browlift procedure. Contact Dr. Pin's practice to schedule a brow lift consultation.
