Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
Our endoscopic brow lift is the best procedure available for eliminating the tired, serious, or angry appearance that comes from having low eyebrows. This simple procedure involves short incisions and a special fiber optic camera to elevate the brows in a youthful arch, minimize forehead and frown lines, and rejuvenate the face.
A More Youthful Look
Age, genetics, and environmental factors can all contribute to unwanted facial creases and a tired appearance. A brow lift restores your more youthful, happy and alert look by correcting the following problems:
- Furrows in the forehead
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Drooping eyebrows
The Procedure – What to Expect
Our endoscopic brow lifts are performed under general anesthesia in our office surgical suite. Once you are comfortable and properly sedated, Dr. Sanovich inserts an endoscope – a telescope about the size of a soda straw with a video camera at one end – through small incisions in the hair above your forehead. This mobilizes and tightens the tissue to elevate the eyebrows, smooth the forehead, and reduce the crow’s feet.
Since the brow is usually only lifted one-quarter to three-eights of an inch, there is minimal change in the hairline and no loss of hair. Even men with receded hairlines, or total hair loss, have almost no visible scarring. The small incisions heal rapidly, are well hidden in the hair, and require no bandage. Once healing is complete, forehead movement and expressions return to normal.
Made to Order
We can customize your brow lift according to your concerns, and we often incorporate an eyelid lift or a facelift simultaneously if that contributes to your goals. Combining cosmetic procedures can make an even greater difference in the elimination of long-term sun damage and aging while enhancing the look of your eyes, forehead, and brows and bringing out your innate beauty.
Dr. Sanovich pioneered a technique that combines an endoscopic brow lift with a facelift procedure, which provides all of the benefits of the brow lift in addition to elevating the cheeks and corners of the mouth, and reducing the cheek fold at the corner of the nose. This combination of procedures is ideal for patients interested in a more conservative facelift that would eliminate their tired, serious, or sad appearance.
Brow Lift Surgery Recovery
A smoother forehead and a refreshed, more youthful look are the immediate results of a brow lift. There is normally no swelling or bruising of the forehead. You may experience mild swelling in the upper eyelids or a mild headache, but nothing that cannot be managed with over-the-counter medication.
Most patients are up and about the day of surgery and can return to work in three to four days. If the procedure is performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery, facelift or laser resurfacing, additional recuperation may be necessary.
Excessive exposure to the sun, along with normal aging, and other factors including heredity, cause loss of skin elasticity which produces unattractive furrows in the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines and drooping of the eyebrows. Many young individuals have excessively low eyebrows due to hereditary influences. Low eyebrows may make you appear tense, old, angry and tired. You may look unfriendly, excessively serious, and unapproachable. A brow lift can correct these problems and restore a more youthful, happy and alert appearance.
