Brow Lift

If you are experiencing creases along the forehead or a sagging brow, Dr. Stafford Broumand and Dr. Daniel Maman can significantly rejuvenate these areas with brow lift surgery. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can improve the effects that exhaustion and the natural effects of aging can have upon upper facial areas. This procedure can also reduce frown lines between the brows, and even improve vision for patients experiencing visual obstruction due to a lower position of the brow.

Benefits of Brow Lift

In addition lifting skin on the forehead to achieve a smoother, rejuvenated appearance, a brow lift can be personalized to address several other concerns that may result from a drooping brow. Depending on your particular needs and goals, brow lift surgery may be able to help:

  • Diminish deep lines, wrinkles, creases, and crow’s feet
  • Eliminate furrows between the eyebrows
  • Reposition eyebrows to a more desireable location
  • Improve an “angry” and/or “tired” appearance
  • Relieve tension in the forehead muscles
  • Raise heavy upper eyelids for improved vision

As an added benefit, a brow lift can often be performed in conjunction with other treatments such as facelift surgery and blepharoplasty. By combining these procedures, patients can generally achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation with exceptional results.

The Brow Lift Procedure

At 740 Park Plastic Surgery, our board certified plastic surgeons perform all brow lift surgeries endoscopically through small incisions concealed in the hairline. During the procedure, the skin is carefully lifted around the forehead, and underlying muscles are gently elevated and tightened. Excess tissues are then removed, and the skin is re-draped for a rejuvenated appearance. If desired, the eyebrows can also be lifted to a higher position for optimal results. The endoscopic brow lift procedure typically takes about one hour to complete, though this time may be longer for patients who are combining their surgery with another treatment.

Brow Lift Recovery and Results

Many patients are able to resume normal daily activities within one to two weeks after brow lift surgery. Some temporary swelling and bruising can be expected after the procedure; however, any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Recovery may be a bit longer for patients who choose to combine brow lift with a complementary procedure.

Since incisions are concealed in the hairline, any potential scarring from brow lift surgery is virtually invisible. Results are often apparent relatively quickly, and they should continue to improve as bruising and/or swelling subsides. Ultimately, patients can expect a rejuvenated appearance with natural-looking, long-lasting outcomes.
