Open Your Eyes to a Rejuvenated Appearance With a Brow Lift

Brows are an important part of a person’s physical appearance. They are among the most expressive aspects of the face and can indicate if you are angry, sad, confused, frustrated or tired. Unfortunately, the forehead and brow area are among the first places to show signs of aging, and some people are left with what seems like a permanent furrow or sagging brow. If your brows make you appear to be constantly tired, worried or angry, a brow lift procedure can be image changing.

Brow Lift Benefits

A brow lift is one of the most efficient and effective ways to create a refreshed appearance and rejuvenate the face above the eyes. In this procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer, elevates sagging skin and repositions the underlying muscles and tissue to eliminate deep furrows, lift the brows and restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the upper section of the face.

A brow lift procedure can:

  • Erase furrow (vertical) lines between the eyebrows and grooves on the forehead
  • Reverse a tired or angry appearance to create a happier, friendlier appearance
  • Open up the eyes for a more alert and youthful look
  • Produce personalized, long-lasting results (whereas cosmetic injectables will fade over time)

Exposure to the elements, the effects of gravity and loss of skin elasticity as part of the natural aging process can take a toll on brows and add years to a person’s appearance. A brow lift restores a more youthful appearance to the face by lifting the brows and smoothing away wrinkles. Results can be as subtle or dramatic depending on the need. The best part? You no longer have to worry about looking worried!

What to Expect From a Brow Lift

As a patient of Schaffer Plastic Surgery, you can expect your results to be completely personalized to your unique aesthetic goals. Dr. Schaffer is highly experienced in performing brow lift procedures for men and women of many ages and skin types. At your private consultation, Dr. Schaffer will examine your facial anatomy and discuss your goals with you to determine which brow lift technique is best suited for your needs.

Downtime and Post-Recovery

Patients are often surprised to learn that downtime after a brow lift procedure can range from only a few days to up to ten days. Early swelling and bruising can be covered with makeup, so an impact on your daily routine after a brow lift is limited. A brow lift can be conducted as a standalone procedure, but it is often combined with other procedures for total facial rejuvenation. Laser resurfacing treatments also complement and enhance the results of a brow lift.

How Long do the Results Last?

Your brow lift results will last for many years to come; however, nothing can stop the normal aging process, meaning that your forehead tissues will eventually begin to settle with time and gravity. When it is time for your brow lift to be touched up, dermal fillers, neuromodulators, microneedling and laser skin resurfacing treatments can help. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can also address droopy upper eyelids or bags under the eyes, further refreshing and rejuvenating the eye area.
