Brow Lift

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift reduces the appearance of aging by correcting deep horizontal forehead lines, deep vertical lines between the eyebrows, and drooping brows. Crow’s feet also improve dramatically after a browlift.

Who Should Consider a brow lift?

The typical brow lift patient is middle-aged or older, and comes to Dr. "C" because of difficulty looking up, have excess upper eyelid skin or feel they look tired or angry all the time.

Do I have Options?

Depending on the degree of lift required and the amount of sun damage to your skin, different surgical approaches may be recommended. A minimally invasive brow lift procedure is the endoscopic brow lift, in which the forehead skin is moved through small scalp incisions, guided by remote instruments and an endoscope. A brow lift is typically performed under general or twilight anesthesia and can last from 1-2 hours, with a light dressing applied afterward.

What should I expect during and after recovery? 

Expect swelling of the forehead, and bruising and swelling of the upper and lower eyelids for the first few days after a brow lift. You may also experience discomfort between your eyebrows during the 24 hours after surgery. Mild narcotic pain medications, head elevation and ice packs are helpful in controlling this initial discomfort. About a week after your brow lift, most bruising and swelling will be gone and you should be able to resume your normal schedule within two weeks.

Patients seeking a more complete facial rejuvenation may combine a brow lift with upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasties, and often with a face lift as well. The results depend on your overall skin condition but typically expect your results to last approximately 5-10 years.

Choosing a plastic surgeon for your Brow lift is a big decision and shouldn't be taken lightly.
