Brow Lift

Dr. Stafford Broumand is renowned for his exceptional skill and artistry in achieving natural, rejuvenated facelift results.

Factors such as exhaustion, chronic stress, and simply the natural aging process can greatly affect the appearance of one’s upper facial region. Some of the most common aesthetic concerns that can manifest as a result of these elements include deep forehead creases, conspicuous lines and wrinkles, sagging brow skin, and furrows between the eyebrows. At 740 Park Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stafford Broumand, offers brow lift surgery for individuals seeking to rejuvenate their forehead and upper facial area.

What Is A Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to elevate and rejuvenate the brow area. This procedure is typically performed to address signs of aging, such as sagging eyebrows, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines. It can also help improve the overall appearance of the upper face.

Benefits of Brow Lift

Brow lifts can help patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance by:

  • Raising the eyebrows to a more desirable position
  • Reducing wrinkles and horizontal forehead lines
  • Smoothing frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Opening up the eyes to reduce hooding in the upper eyelids
  • Improving the overall symmetry of the face

Preparing For Brow Lift

Preparing for a brow lift is an essential step in ensuring a successful outcome. First and foremost is your consultation with Dr. Broumand to discuss your goals and assess your candidacy. During this initial meeting, be prepared to share your medical history, current medications, and any previous surgeries or treatments. In the weeks leading up to your brow lift, follow any preoperative instructions provided by Dr. Broumand. This may include discontinuing certain medications or supplements that could increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. You will also be advised to avoid smoking and alcohol, as they can affect your body’s ability to heal. Arrange for a responsible adult to drive you to and from our surgery center and assist you during the initial days of recovery. By taking these steps and closely following Dr. Broumand’s recommendations, you can help ensure a smooth and successful brow lift experience at 740 Park Plastic Surgery in New York City.

The Brow Lift Procedure

This facial plastic surgery procedure is performed under general anesthesia at our state-of-the-art surgery center. Dr. Broumand utilizes an endoscopic technique performed through tiny incisions hidden in the hairline for all brow lift surgeries. During treatment, the skin is gently raised around the forehead, and muscles underneath the skin are carefully elevated and tightened. Once this is complete, the skin is redraped and pulled taut, and any extra tissues are excised. If needed and/or desired, the eyebrows can also be repositioned for an ideal outcome. On average, endoscopic brow lift surgery takes approximately one hour to complete, but this timeframe may vary depending on whether or not the treatment is combined with another facial rejuvenation procedure.

Brow Lift Recovery

Some minor bruising and/or swelling may be present immediately after brow lift surgery, but these side effects often resolve within a few days. Though rare, any pain or discomfort experienced during recovery can typically be managed with medication. While recovery time can vary, the majority of individuals can return to normal, non-strenuous jobs and daily routines within about one to two weeks, but Dr. Broumand often recommends avoiding any heavy lifting or strenuous activity for a minimum of four weeks to help ensure proper healing. For patients whose brow lift was combined with a complementary facial procedure, recovery, and downtime may be a bit longer.

FAQs About Brow Lift

Am I a candidate for a brow lift?

A good candidate for a brow lift is typically an individual who is bothered by drooping brows that may contribute to sagging eyelid skin, forehead wrinkles, or frown lines and desires a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Ideal candidates are generally in good overall health, do not smoke or are willing to quit before and after the procedure, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the surgery. Age is not the sole determining factor; candidates can be in their 30s to 60s or even older. During your consultation with Dr. Broumand, it will be assessed whether a brow lift is appropriate based on the patient’s unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals. Factors such as the degree of brow sagging and skin elasticity will help determine candidacy for the procedure.

How long does a brow lift procedure take?

The duration of a brow lift surgery varies depending on the technique used and the complexity of the case but typically takes between 1 to 2 hours.

Will there be scars after a brow lift?

Depending on the technique used, incisions may be made in the hairline or within the hairline, which can minimize visible scarring. The extent of scarring varies from person to person.

How long will the results of a brow lift last?

The results of a brow lift can be long-lasting, but the aging process continues. Lifestyle factors, genetics, and skin care can all impact how long the results endure.

Are there any risks associated with brow lift surgery?

As with any surgery, there are risks involved, including infection, scarring, asymmetry, and changes in sensation. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon.

Can I combine a brow lift with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, brow lifts are often combined with other types of cosmetic surgery like eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), facelift, or neck lift or non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox and/or other injectables like dermal fillers to achieve comprehensive enhancement in additional areas of the face.

How much does a brow lift cost?

The cost of a brow lift can vary based on several factors, including the extent of the procedure, the technique used, and whether any additional procedures are performed concurrently. To obtain an accurate and personalized cost estimate, it is advisable to schedule a consultation with Dr. Broumand at 740 Park Plastic Surgery. During this consultation, Dr. Broumand can assess your specific needs and provide you with a detailed cost estimate based on your unique circumstances.

What are the differences between the types of brow lift procedures?

There are several techniques for performing a brow lift, and the choice of technique depends on the patient’s specific needs and the surgeon’s expertise. Dr. Broumand offers the temporal brow lift, due to several advantages including natural-looking results, minimally invasive approach, less scarring, less risk of complications, and faster recovery. This minimally invasive technique uses small incisions and an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera) to visualize and manipulate the tissues beneath the skin. It requires smaller incisions and typically results in less scarring and a quicker recovery compared to the traditional approach.

Other types of brow lift include the traditional, or coronal brow lift and the temporal brow lift. The coronal brow lift involves making incisions either along the hairline, within the hairline, or on the scalp. The surgeon then lifts and repositions the forehead skin and underlying tissues to create a smoother and more youthful appearance. Excess skin may be removed, and the incisions are closed with sutures or staples. The temporal brow lift focuses on the outer portion of the eyebrows and can be suitable for patients with mild to moderate brow sagging in this area. It involves shorter incisions in the temples.
