No body part is immune to the effects of gravity or aging. The upper face, including the eyebrows, ultimately falls with time. This can create prominent forehead creases, low-set eyebrows, and very heavy upper eyelids. The effect tends to give women a fatigued or angry appearance, while it makes men appear old and tired.
Brow lift surgery—also called a forehead lift—is designed to restore the upper face to its original, youthful position. This procedure smooths forehead wrinkles and opens the area of the eyes, making a person appear more alive and vibrant. It is frequently combined with other cosmetic surgical procedures, such as upper and lower blepharoplasty, as well as various injectable treatments.
Recognized as one of the leading oculoplastic surgeons in South Florida, Dr. Michael Connor has a long history of achieving exceptional brow lift results using an endoscopic approach. To learn all about this rejuvenative procedure at our practice, please feel free to browse the sections below, or contact Oculoplastic & Orbital Consultants today to book a consultation with Dr. Connor.
How Is the Brow Lift Procedure Performed?
Dr. Connor offers endoscopic brow lift surgery, which is performed through tiny incisions using an endoscope (medical telescope). During the procedure, the skin and underlying musculature of the forehead are gently elevated and tightened, and any excess tissue is carefully excised. The eyebrows are also raised to a more youthful, natural position, helping to create a revitalized facial appearance.
Endoscopic brow lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, requiring only a local anesthetic with twilight anesthesia. After treatment, patients are generally able to return home with assistance from a friend or loved one.
What Is the Brow Lift Recovery Process Like?
Some temporary swelling and/or bruising may occur initially, but the majority of women and men are able to return to regular, non-strenuous daily activities within one week of surgery. Most patients report little to no pain after their procedure, though if any discomfort is experienced, medication can help provide sufficient relief. In order to give the treatment area ample time to fully heal, Dr. Connor usually recommends refraining from strenuous activities for at least four weeks.
What Does a Brow Lift Cost?
Pricing for a brow lift varies from patient to patient based on the unique needs and goals of the individual. Additional components that can impact the overall expense include the skill and experience of the surgeon, as well as whether or not complementary treatments are performed simultaneously for further cosmetic enhancement. To provide a custom cost estimate for brow lift surgery, Dr. Connor will need to perform a thorough facial evaluation during an in-person consultation at our practice. At this time, he can detail all elements that factor into the total price of treatment.
