Enhancing your appearance with a brow lift:

If you have expression lines or other signs of aging in the forehead and brow region that you find bothersome, a brow lift (also called a forehead lift) may be right for you. A brow lift:

  • Minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes
  • Improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines
  • Repositions a low or sagging brow that is hooding the upper eyelid
  • Raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position

A brow lift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved tone in facial skin and underlying muscle.

Procedural Steps:

Brow lift surgery can be performed through multiple limited incisions hidden within the hairline or through a single incision. Results of a brow lift may be enhanced through a chemical peel that can further improve skin tone and surface appearance. When there is significant excess skin in the forehead, Dr. Otis Allen may recommend an alternate technique using a wide incision across the top of the scalp.

Your Results:

Swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. Final results may appear within 1-2 months. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for up to 1 year.
