Brow Lift

The effects of aging are inevitable, and often the brow and forehead area are the first to show the signs of growing older as your skin begins to lose its elasticity. Sun, wind, and the pull of gravity all affect the face, resulting in frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and droopiness of the eyebrows. Not only do forehead wrinkles cause you to look older, but the sagging of the brow can also result in a constantly tired, angry, or sad expression. A brow lift repositions the brows while smoothing and tightening the skin.

What to Expect

A heavy, fallen brow can not only make you look prematurely aged, but can also give the false impression that you feel tired, angry, or stressed, no matter how you feel on the inside. By lifting and tightening the supportive structures of the forehead, the eyebrows can be returned to a higher position.

Not everyone is a candidate for brow lift surgery. Aging in the lower face, like jowling or the appearance of “turkey neck,” would be better addressed with a facelift. For those men and women who notice droopy eyelids, eyelid surgery may be a better option to help you meet your goals. Eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery are often combined.

Your Consult

There are two techniques for performing brow lift surgery: the open (classic) procedure and the endoscopic forehead lift. During your consultation, your age, skin type, skin laxity, ethnic background, degree of brow droop, and your desired results will be taken into consideration to determine which approach would be best for you.

For patients who want a less invasive procedure option to lift the brows, Dysport® to relax the facial muscles is a possible nonsurgical alternative.

Preparing for Your Brow Lift

The brow lift takes between 1 to 2 hours to complete, depending on the surgical technique used and whether other procedures are scheduled at the same time. Further, for the comfort of the patient, a brow lift is a performed under general anesthesia.

Recovery &
Results

You may initially feel uncomfortable after your brow lift or notice a feeling of tightness in your forehead. Although your individual experience may vary, swelling or bruising may be reduced by keeping your head elevated, including while you sleep.
