Brow Lift

High Brow

Surgical Brow Lift | Brooklyn, NY

As we age, the eyelids and brows are subject to the chronic forces of stretching and gravity that affect both the skin and deeper tissues, which no longer take the same shape or position as in our youth. This process leads to wrinkles and creases in the forehead and a gradual descent of the brows that make our eyes appear heavy, tired, and even sad. At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery, brow lift surgery with double board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Renata Khelemsky can rejuvenate the appearance of heavy brows and rewind forehead aging by lifting the brows to a higher, more arched position, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Learn more about whether a brow lift is right for you by scheduling your personalized consultation today.

What is a Surgical Brow Lift?

Higher Brow

A brow lift is a surgical technique that lifts the skin and key deep structures within the forehead to reposition a sagging brow to a higher position and with a more pleasing shape or arch. A brow lift can also smooth creases and wrinkles of the forehead by removing and tightening the excess skin, helping to rejuvenate the upper third of the face. Because there is a close relationship between the aging of the brow and the overall condition of the upper eyelids, brow lift surgery is often combined with blepharoplasty (also known as an upper eyelid lift) to produce a total rejuvenation of the eyes. This will help the eyes, and the overall face, appear smoother, younger, and more energetic.

What are the benefits of a surgical brow lift?

Resounding Satisfaction

A surgical brow lift is a relatively safe and effective outpatient procedure that can give powerful, long-lasting results. Benefits of a surgical brow lift include:

  • Lifted appearance to low-set brows
  • Enhanced arch and shape of the brows
  • Reduced heaviness along the upper eyelids
  • Relief of constant forehead strain
  • Smoothing of forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Shortening of an excessively long forehead
  • Correction of brow asymmetries

Notably, brow lift surgery carries a high satisfaction rate, with over 93 percent of respondents on RealSelf saying they are happy with their results from the procedure. This makes a surgical brow lift an effective, long-lasting way to regain confidence in the way you look.

Am I a good candidate for a surgical brow lift?

Do you get told you look tired?

Surgical brow lifts are a long-lasting solution for many concerns related to the eyebrows. You may be a candidate for a surgical brow lift if you:

  • Appear tired or angry and believe it is due to heavy, drooping brows
  • Have significant asymmetry of the brows
  • Have chronic forehead strain from lifting your brows
  • Are not satisfied with a non-surgical brow lift using neuromodulators (Botox)
  • Have an elongated appearance to the forehead with heavy-feeling brows

Dr. Khelemsky may choose one of several surgical brow lift techniques as a treatment to address your concerns. During your personalized consultation, Dr. Khelemsky will review your health history and your facial features. You will likely explore several options to help you determine the best results for your situation.

Your Surgical Brow Lift Procedure

Personalized Surgery Plans

Depending on your selected procedure, you will receive a local or general anesthesia to ensure comfort during the procedure. Dr. Khelemsky will review the placement of the brow lift incisions. Brow lift incisions are designed to minimize scarring or hair loss. However, these incisions will take the appropriate time to heal. Dr. Khelemsky will review with you how to manage your incisions for the best possible outcome. Brow lift surgery can be performed using one of several techniques:

Hairline (trichophytic) brow lift

Performed through the first few rows of hair along the hairline for excellent scar camouflage, this technique lifts the entire brow and achieves forehead shortening

Temporal brow lift

Performed through a limited incision along the hairline, this type of brow lift is used to lift the tail of the brow for a more arched appearance

Endoscopic brow lift

Performed through a series of small incisions inside the hairline to achieve a lift of the entire brow without affecting forehead length

Mid-forehead brow lift

Performed through a prominent skin crease of the forehead in patients with a sparse or indeterminate hairline

Direct brow lift

Performed directly above the hair of the brow to achieve maximum control of brow position, especially in cases of asymmetry

Brow Lift Recovery

The initial incision may take one to two weeks to heal. You will have a series of follow-up appointments to remove sutures and ensure proper hygiene. Patients may use a neat dressing consisting of gauze and ointment to maintain cleanliness and increase comfort. You will be advised to keep your head elevated and avoid vigorous physical activity for the first two weeks. Dr. Khelemsky will review your incision care, medications, and all other information specific to your surgery.

Brow Lift Results

You will notice results immediately. However, swelling is usually a prominent feature of brow lift surgery. As the surgery area drains with gravity, your eyes will appear swollen for the first two weeks. Your brows will continue to settle into their new form over the next couple of weeks to months. To maintain your results, Dr. Khelemsky will recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen, a daily skincare routine, as well as other nonsurgical modalities. After receiving their brow lift Brooklyn patients are one step closer to achieving their beauty goals!

Frequently Asked Questions

For several brow lift techniques, patients will have the option to have surgery performed under local anesthesia. However, other techniques are best performed in the operating room under sedation anesthesia. Patients will not experience pain or discomfort in either case, as the brow area will be adequately numbed for surgery. After surgery, most of our Brooklyn brow lift patients manage their discomfort with over-the-counter medicines during their recovery. However, Dr. Khelemsky may prescribe additional medication to ease recovery.

A brow lift is a safe and effective surgery. However, facial cosmetic surgery carries a small risk of infection, excessive bleeding, poor healing, and scarring. Other rare risks include long-lasting numbness, hair loss along the incision site, and brow weakness or asymmetry. Dr. Khelemsky will review all potential risks of brow lift surgery with you in detail and will be able to answer all of your questions.

Non-surgical brow lifts are performed using neuromodulators such as Botox and dermal fillers to lift the tail of the brow and help create a gentle arch. This is the most common type of brow lift in the younger patient population and can be a very effective means of shaping and lifting the tail of the brow. This “chemical” brow lift usually lasts for several months and may be repeated as often as needed to maintain the result. A surgical brow lift, on the other hand, is a more invasive and long-lasting procedure that can take several weeks of healing and recovery. A surgical brow lift can lift and reshape the brows, as well as remove excess forehead skin, leading to a smoother appearing forehead with less heaviness along the upper eyelids. Surgical brow lifts are usually considered in patients with moderate to advanced facial aging; however, some types of surgical brow lifts, such as a temporal brow lift, may be performed in younger patients who seek a change in the brow shape or arch.

Since there is anesthesia needed for a brow lift Brooklyn patients will require a responsible friend or family member to assist with arriving home and helping with post-surgical care. This will ensure, first and foremost, your safety.
