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.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I am beyond ecstatic of the professionalism and perfection that I received from Dr. Dash and her entire team. I would recommend them over and over again. Dr. Dash made me feel so comfortable from day one. I explained to her my worries and weaknesses, and she ensured me that I was in great hands, and that I was. Dr. Dash and her husband worked on me together due to the multiple procedures I was having and what an awesome team they are. At the surgery center I was told that you always want to seek out perfectionist surgeons and that is what you have. I could not agree any less. The day of operation i was walking around by day 3, i no longer needed my walker and was more mobile than I thought I would ever be. Do your research and make sure you feel comfortable with the surgeon and team that you choose. Its a big surgery and an expensive investment, and YOU DESERVE ONLY THE BEST! THANK YOU DR DASH AND TEAM. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs."- H.K. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
"I felt very comfortable every step of the way, from first interview through the last post surgery visit. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The blepharoplasty surgery results are exactly what I requested, very natural looking. Dr Jain (a super nice person) clearly listened to my thoughts about the procedure and desired results, offered options and information to consider, and at no time did I feel pressured in any way. I have recommended this office wholeheartedly to friends, and would go back myself in a second with any further surgery ideas!"- H.H. / Google / Jan 28, 2020
"I am a raving fan of the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I have worked in the beauty industry in London, Paris, New York, L.A. Montreal and Vancouver. This place rivals big city style. From the moment you walk in the front door and are greeted by the smiles. The ‘understand YOUR world’ attitudes of Shalom and Arriana guide you into the elegant relaxed ambiance. My first appointment was to see Dr. Jain. I was sixtynine and was looking at a face lift. When I left the office the face lift was off the table...replaced by a group of small procedures....the ultherapy was a dream. Pulling up my neck and adding collagen to my face. How exciting! Ashley was my technician and she is quite simply amazing. My time with her went by so incredibly fast. I will be returning for more of these treatments in the years to come. Ashley also did some of my BBL treatments. Thankyou Ashley. Nicole has been my technician along with Ashley for the BBL treatments recommended by Dr. Jain. Nicole is a sweet spirit who also did the deep cleansing treatment on my face. I could not have been more impressed with the results of both these procedures. Thankyou Nicole.And now to the star of the show....Dr. Jain. Dr. Jain is marvelous! From his very relaxed demeanor to his extremely extensive knowledge of his field Dr. Jain decided what was best for me. He was bang on. Yes, he would have made so much more money by doing the prementioned face lift. I did not need a face lift! I needed exactly what he recommended. I feel and look great. Dr. Jain has injected Botox at the outside corners of my eyes...not overly done...just perfection. He certainly is the wizard of needles! Last summer’s broken neck left me with dominant neck cords. Dr. Jain’s finesse with the needle has softened these cords immensely. I have filler in my gnarly hands. They lost at least fifteen years immediately. I have also had filler around my mouth and lower face...the filler lasts about a year and Dr. Jain never gives me an over the top look. Thank you to Dr. Jain my new sensational beauty coach! I love my new family. Many Thankyou’s to all of you. Also a very special Thankyou for the gorgeous orchid plant you sent after I broke my neck. As mentioned before I am your a Raving Fan!I am so thrilled with my beauty family. I broke my neck last summer and shortly after I came home from the surgery I received a gorgeous orchid plant from Dr.Jain and his staff. It really is the little things that make this Institute an outstanding place to visit. All the little polished touches that welcome you to Dr. Jain’s world. I am so thrilled that I am now a part of this world. It is a perfect outcome for me."- J.P. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
"I love my new neck! I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed! - I love Dr. Jain and his staff! Dr. Jain tells you the truth about what he can do for you. I have had other doctors who promised what they would do and how I would look and it did not turn out that way. I am so happy with the procedure Dr. Jain did for me. He was very kind and honest with me. If you need a procedure done I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed!"- W. / RealSelf / Dec 20, 2019
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.
