What is a Brow Lift

A brow lift, also called forehead lift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the forehead, brows, and eye area by raising soft tissue and sagging skin. It addresses issues like low or sagging brows, unevenness, potentially boosting self-confidence.

The procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial procedures like eyelid surgery or a face lift.

Candidate for Forehead Lift

If your brow is too low and close to your eyes, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. This may be the case if you find your upper face always has a tired or unhappy appearance. If your brow is very low, it can make your eyelids feel heavy and can even get in the way of your vision. Deep wrinkles across your forehead can be a sign that you have to work to lift your eyebrows up and that you may benefit from a brow lift procedure.

You may also benefit from a forehead lift procedure if you do not like the shape of your eyebrows. If your eyebrows slant down at the outside, giving you a more worried appearance, a brow lift can fix this and lift the outside edge of your eyebrow instead. There are many different reasons to pursue a brow lift, and Dr. Mason can elaborate for prospective patients in Las Vegas.

Types of Brow Lift Surgery

The brow lift techniques aim to diminish visible signs of aging, typically sought by individuals aged 40 to 60. Various techniques are employed, with common methods including:

Coronal Brow Lift

After administering anesthesia, the surgeon creates an incision from ear to ear, typically starting at about ear level and crossing the top of the forehead. Alternatively, the incision may be placed at the hairline. Delicately lifting the forehead skin, the surgeon eliminates excess tissue and fat, and may realign muscles if needed. Adjustments to the eyebrow position may be made, and excess skin is trimmed during the procedure.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

Endoscopic forehead lift utilizes small, discreet incisions concealed within the hair. Fiberoptic equipment delicately releases and elevates brow tissue. Bruising is typically minimal, and healing time is generally faster compared to traditional approaches for most patients.

Temporal Brow Lift

Dr. Mason can perform this minimally invasive procedure in the office under local anesthesia. It’s a streamlined version of the endoscopic brow lift, offering excellent results with minimal downtime.

Brow Lift Recovery

The initial healing period typically spans 10 to 14 days, and sutures or clips will be removed at the appropriate time. You can expect to resume work and normal activities within 10-14 days. If bruising is a concern, cosmetics can be used to camouflage it. Here are few more things to expect during the recovery process:

  • Expect fatigue and potential headache.
  • Pain meds are needed for 3-5 days.
  • Swelling and bruising around the eyes should resolve in under two weeks.
  • Dressing is removed 2-3 days post-surgery; hair washing is allowed.
  • Wound clips are removed on day 10-14.
  • Don’t drive until off narcotics, avoid strenuous activities for 3 weeks, and limit alcohol due to fluid retention.
  • A caretaker aids in the first 24 hours.
  • You’ll be up and about in 24-48 hours but may feel tired and sore.
  • Antibiotics continue for 5 days.
  • Walk on the morning after surgery, start a light solid diet, and monitor for signs of infection.
  • Return to work varies. You can bathe and wash hair 48-72 hours after, but avoid submerging incisions in water.

If you experience specific symptoms, contact the office promptly.

Brow Lift Cost Las Vegas

Brow lift surgery cost is exclusive of additional expenses such as anesthesia, operating room facilities, and related costs. To ascertain the final fee, consult your plastic surgeon’s office. The surgeon’s fee for brow lift surgery considers experience, procedure type, and geographic location.

Brow lift surgery and its complications are typically not covered by health insurance, but inquire about patient financing plans offered by many plastic surgeons.

Mixing a Brow Lift with Other Operations

Yes, brow lifts are often done at the same time as other procedures at our Las Vegas office. A brow lift is commonly combined with another facial procedure like eyelid surgery or a facelift. You can also do fat injections or injectables like fillers and Botox to the face while you are asleep. Talk to Dr. Mason to help make the surgical plan that is best for you. At Perspectives Plastic Surgery, our goal is for you to have the body you’ve always wanted and the confidence to match. There are many options to achieve this.

Forehead Lift FAQS

Will I have Brow lift scars?

Yes. Like any surgery, a brow lift will result in post-surgical scarring. Fortunately, visible scarring is kept to a minimum, thanks to discreetly placed incisions. Initial pink or raised scars near the hairline may be visible for a few months, but they tend to fade over time, becoming barely noticeable.

How long do brow lift procedures last?

Surgical brow lifts yield results lasting an average of 10 to 12 years. While some patients may experience longer-lasting results, factors like age and skincare practices influence the ultimate duration of the treatment’s effectiveness.

What is the difference of brow lift vs blepharoplasty?

A brow lift focuses on the forehead’s loose skin and soft tissue, while blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat from upper and lower eyelids. While blepharoplasty/eyelid lift enhances the eyes’ appearance, it doesn’t reposition the eyebrows.

What is a mini brow lift?

In the mini brow lift, small incisions are used to elevate underlying tissues off the forehead bone. Frown lines are released, allowing the brow to be lifted and positioned as desired. These minimal incisions heal rapidly, contributing to a natural appearance.

Can a brow lift fix hooded eyes?

Yes.  A brow lift can address hooded eyes caused by droopy eyebrows. The surgery lifts sagging eyebrows, reducing the heaviness over the upper eyelids and creating a wider-eyed youthful appearance.
