Brow/Forehead Lift

What is a Brow/Forehead Lift?
One of the keys to a refreshed appearance is the position and shape of the eyebrows. Low, flat eyebrows can create a tired, sad or even angry appearance. As the brow falls from its youthful position, it also crowds the eyes, causing hooding of the upper eyelids and loose excess skin that can have a negative impact on your appearance and even interfere with your line of vision.

Surgical rejuvenation of the region above the eyes can be accomplished artfully with a brow lift. A rejuvenated brow frames the eyes and restores a youthful shape and position to the eyebrows. Modern brow lift techniques have evolved to minimize downtime while maximizing cosmetic results.

Choosing a Surgeon for Your Brow Lift
Dr. Daines specializes in facial rejuvenation, including brow lift surgery. With an array of surgical and non-surgical tools at his disposal, Dr. Daines will help you choose a rejuvenation strategy that is uniquely tailored to your specific needs. During your consultation, he will evaluate your brow and determine whether a brow lift will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

A brow lift is often performed in conjunction with eyelid rejuvenation surgery as part of a comprehensive approach to improving the appearance of the eyes and upper face. Volume loss in the cheeks and under the eyes can be addressed at the same time as a brow lift with Dr. Daines’ innovative fat transfer fat transfer techniques.

A brow lift is a popular way to refresh a tired, aging face by returning the brow to a more youthful position, improving the shape of the brow, and enhancing the relationship between the brow and the upper eyelids.

Dr. Steven Daines performed an eyebrow lift on me.  At 69 years of age, my eyes appeared small and my eyelids sagged.  Now my eyes are vibrant, I can see better and have received many compliments from friends I haven't seen in a long time. The look is very natural; I am very pleased with the results of Dr. Daines surgery! - Cheryl N.

Procedure Details

A brow lift is performed in an outpatient surgery center under general or twilight anesthesia. The procedure takes between 1-2 hours. Three small incisions are made in the hairline above the forehead and two additional incisions are made in the hair above the temples. No hair is shaved and visible post-operative scarring is minimal. With special instruments, the forehead and brow are then released and raised to a more ideal position. The incisions are closed with surgical clips or stitches, which are removed about a week after the procedure.

Following surgery, discomfort is mild and can be controlled with pain medication as needed. There will be bruising and swelling for 7-14 days that can be minimized by using ice packs and sleeping with the head of the bed elevated. Some numbness is common, but temporary. Showering is allowed after 48 hours and sutures or surgical clips are removed within a week. Scars will fade to barely visible lines. Most patients can return to work after the first week and should avoid strenuous activity for 3-4 weeks.
