About Brow Lift Surgery
When you age, skin elasticity decreases and causes various aspects of the face to begin to sag. This is particularly true in the upper face and typically impacts both men and women. When looking in a mirror, do you think you look angry or tired, see deep wrinkles in between your eyebrows, or don't like seeing a sagging brow? A brow lift at at our practice could be the ideal aesthetic procedure for you if you are suffering from any of these issues.
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated. Now that I’m 32, I have finally figured out how to feed myself and I’m stable enough that I’ve decided t..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018

Before the procedure, anesthesia is administered. This may be done under IV sedation or general anesthesia based on the nature of the procedure. The incision performed in a browplasty is chosen with consideration to the degree of skin's condition, whether the forehead is being addressed, and the appearance of the patient's hairline. The different techniques that may be used at our practice are:
- Traditional Incision
This is the open brow lift incision and puts the surgical incision behind the hairline at the top of the head. This incision not only hides scars, but it also allows a certain amount of lift control throughout the surgery. This type of incision is good for those with both frown lines and a sagging brow. The traditional brow lift is the preferred method for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
- Endoscopic Forehead Lift
The endoscopic lift is a more modern method employed in brow lift surgery. This method makes multiple small incisions beyond the hairline and inserts a tool known as an endoscope, which travels to the eyebrow to release its attached tools. Using the endoscope's camera, the brow tissue is repositioned with stitches to put the brow in a higher location.
What to Expect
The recovery period after a brow lift varies, with more post-surgery swelling and discomfort reported with the traditional approach compared to the endoscopic method. In general, patients feel some swelling and bruising in the upper portion of the face around the eyebrows and sometimes near the eyes. Cold compresses can help to diminish the inflammation, and our surgeons recommend patients sleep with a few pillows propped under their head for the first several nights after their brow lift. It is critical to eliminate any activities or movement that can put pressure on your face. The typical recovery period from a brow lift is around 2 – 3 weeks. The results can often be seen right away, with a refreshed appearance that seems more alert, softer, and has a visible improvement in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper face.
