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 came in for a consultation with Dr Jain today and he spent nearly an hour with me! No it isnt because im in terrible shape :) It seems to be his approach to skin care and I really appreciate it. He did a full consult to address my long term goals and was clearly very knowledgeable, conservative and professional. On top of that he is incredibly kind and gracious as is him entire staff. I think I have found a partner to work with for years to come!"- M.P. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020

"I wanted to have plastic surgery for years and when the time came I then continued my search for a plastic surgeon who understood the delicacy of African American skin and its healing in Colorado. After meeting Dr. Krishna S. Dash I knew I had found the surgeon for me not only because her knowledge of working with African American skin but because she listened to my desires and provided sound advice. From my first visit to my final post op visit the Staff were great and the facility was friendly and inviting. Let me just say Dr. Dash and her husband Dr. Rupesh Jain did an awesome job on my breast lift with implants and tummy tuck. I love my results!!!!! My friends and family were envious of the final outcome and my husband was enormously pleased!!! If you are reading this and looking for: someone who is an astute provider, who takes time for questions, is knowledgeable of African American skin, and is dedicated to healthily reaching the customers greatest wishes then the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs is the place for you. I couldn’t be happier except to say I wish I found her sooner. Thank you so much!!!!"- A.M. / Google / May 21, 2021
"I would like to share my experience with Dr. Rupesh Jain at the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I came to see Dr. Jain in regards to information about a fat transfer to my face and lips, as well as information about receiving dysport and fillers. I decided to schedule a consultation with him both because of his reviews but more importantly because he is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Prior to my visit I filled out paperwork online regarding my medical history so that during my consultation with him he would be prepared to answer my many questions. I am an unusual case because I have an auto-immune disorder called Scleroderma. It can cause hardening and discoloration of the skin, thinning of the lips, shrinking of the opening of the mouth, and an over production of collagen to name a few of the effects of the disease. The above stated ailments are part of the reasons why I came to see him. My goal was to try and regain the Pre-Scleroderma appearance of my face since my diagnosis. During my first meeting with Dr. Jain, it was obvious that he had reviewed my medical history and was ready to discuss why I had searched out his services. He made me feel completely comfortable and not at all rushed. He listened to my concerns, and what my desired outcomes were. He explained clearly and in laymen’s terms what the reality of receiving those outcomes were. He told me what treatments would work best and why others would be either less effective or riskier to pursue. I was given up front costs and did not feel pressured at all to go for the more expensive procedures. I have been seeing Dr. Jain for quite some time now taking a step-by-step approach to achieving the results I desire with the least risk involved to my challenging health issue. I couldn’t be happier with results I have achieved thus far. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jain and his excellent care. His staff is top notch and his bedside manner is a rare blessing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery to anyone seeking specialized plastic surgery treatment."- A.J. / Google / Mar 22, 2021
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.
