With increased age as we continually use our facial muscles, our skin loses its elasticity, and as a result our expressions no longer spring back to a relaxed state as readily as before. The biggest effect is often seen around our eyes: the arch of the brow begins to flatten, the upper eyelids can become droopy, and the wrinkles on our forehead begin to deepen. With a brow lift, your plastic surgeon can elevate the brow line to a more youthful position while also restoring its natural arch, reduce forehead wrinkles, and tighten the skin above and around your eyes.
When you have any type of facial surgery, a fast recovery is especially important. The less heavily you are sedated during surgery, the easier and faster your recovery, and the sooner you can show yourself in public. A brow lift is a safe and easy procedure of 30-60 minutes that does not require general anesthesia. It is typically done under local anesthesia, supplemented if necessary by mouth sedation.
Your plastic surgeon may use one of several brow lift techniques, such as a coronal, temporal, or endoscopic brow lift. A slight brow lift can even be accomplished with non-surgical injectables such as Botox. And it can easily be combined with other facial rejuvenation options such as eyelid or facelift surgery. The exact scope of your brow lift is something our plastic surgeon will assess and discuss with you during a personal consultation.

If you are unhappy about the appearance of your eyes and forehead, a brow lift is one of the easiest ways to fix that. Good brow lift candidates are in relatively good health and have realistic expectations about the results. Specifically, a brow lift can address any or all of these issues to make you look years younger:
Sagging or flat brow line
Frown lines between your eyes
Forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet
Drooping or hooded eyelids

A less-invasive option than a brow lift, injectables are used to temporarily eliminate crow's feet and frown lines. Facial fillers can also be injected to fill in the folds around nose and mouth, or increase volume in the lips.
