Brow + Forehead Lift

Learn Dr. Rad's nuanced approach in brow and forehead lift.

Brow + Forehead Lift

  • With age, the eyebrow shape, position, and tilt slope downward giving the eyes a fatigued or sad appearance. Very low positioned eyebrows contribute to vision obstruction.
  • Brow lift is a permanent solution to open the eyes, to eliminate the appearance of sadness or fatigue, and to reduce frown lines permanently.

Recommended Procedures

Other Options

  • If the brow is in good position, then an Upper Blepharoplasty can add balance and harmony of the eye area.
  • Botox can give the illusion of a brow lift by weakening adjacent areas of the forehead.
  • Professional Makeup Artistry involves brow shaping techniques to accentuate brow contour.

How It’s Done

  • The Endoscopic approach involves small incisions in the hair and, with the guidance of a camera inserted beneath the brow tissue, the forehead and brows are elevated and secured to a new position.
  • The Short Incision approach involves 3 to 5 inch incisions along the hairline through which the skin is elevated and the lateral eyebrows are lifted.
  • The Coronal approach involves a long incision from temple to temple through which the entire forehead is elevated. 

Safety

  • In Dr. Rad’s hands, brow lift surgery is very safe and is done under light general anesthesia delivered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist in an accredited surgery center.
  • Medical clearance by your Primary Care Physician prior to surgery is needed.

What to Expect

  • Recovery involves minor bruising and swelling and lasts 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the extent of surgery.
  • Return back to work in 1-3 weeks, depending on the speed of healing, is normal.

 The eyebrow frames the eye and, if it droops, can give a fatigued appearance. Dr. Rad uses 3 techniques for mild, moderate or significant brow elevation, and he tailors the surgery to each patient's needs.
