Brow Lift

Conveniently located to serve New York City, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island

A brow lift can revitalize a lined and drooping forehead, lift sagging eyebrows, and help a patient look less sad, angry, or tired. Dr. James P Bradley, an experienced double-board-certified plastic surgeon, frequently performs brow lifts for New York patients.

Dr. Bradley believes that the eyebrow plays a critical role in periorbital rejuvenation. When considering a brighter and more rested look around your eyes, the position of your brow is of paramount importance. In other words, if upper and lower eyelid procedures are performed without consideration of the brow, then the periorbital region may be out of balance.

Brow Lift Surgery Objectives

  • The muscles above the eyes are altered to smooth lines and the eyebrow is raised a desired amount.
  • A balanced, thoughtful correction will prevent the postoperative “surprised” unnatural appearance.

Your Brow Lift Consultation

When selecting the right brow lift procedure for you or whether you should undergo a brow lift at all, a detailed discussion with Dr. Bradley is necessary. During the initial consultation, your rejuvenation goals will be discussed and a complete evaluation will be performed.

In your evaluation, a distinction should be made between upper eyelid excess skin and true brow ptosis (drooping). When upper eyelid excess skin exists, an unconscious elevation of brow may occur. This distinction can be made at the time of consultation. If it is determined that a brow lift is needed, details will be given to you regarding your exact procedure and your postoperative recovery.

State-of-the-Art Techniques

  • Temporal brow lift: This option is aimed at lifting the lateral brow to provide the most pleasing lift. Incisions are made in the bald area of the temporal scalp.
  • Endoscopic brow lift: This is the least invasive brow lift technique. It is effective at removing wrinkle lines and provides a small lift through small puncture holes.
  • Coronal brow lift: This is the most invasive option, but may be necessary for a very heavy, droopy brow. It involves an incision behind the hairline stretching from ear to ear.

The Brow Lift Procedure

At the start of a forehead lift, anesthesia is administered to the patient in order to ensure a comfortable procedure. Once it has taken effect, the chosen brow lift incisions are made. Excess skin is removed, and the underlying tissues are tightened. Finally, the incisions are closed with the help of sutures.

What Is the Brow Lift Recovery Process Like?

Once your surgery has been completed and you have returned home, you will need to rest and recover for a time. For best results, it is essential that you follow Dr. Bradley’s post-surgical care directions diligently.

During healing, you will need to stay home from work as recommended for your specific case. You will also need to avoid physically taxing activities like heavy exercise and sports for several weeks.

Swelling and bruising are normal, and these can be treated using a cold compress. Keeping your head elevated at all times for two days after the procedure will also help.

Brow Lift Cost

Because there is no one-size-fits-all forehead lift, price varies according to the details of the case. The chosen technique, anesthesia type, and length of the procedure all affect the brow lift cost.
