Aging doesn’t occur at the same time or way in every area on our body. Some men and women may experience aging solely on the upper portion of their face due to sun exposure, gravity, or facial tension (we’re talking about stress here). Others may be better suited for a traditional facelift to address facial volume loss. That’s why I find it so important to personally customize procedures according to each patient’s individual needs.
What is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that dramatically reduces the appearance of visible aging on the upper face. Although I do ‘lift the brow’, there is so much more that goes into the procedure. Wrinkle reduction plays a large role in the procedure as well as tightening underlying muscles. Patients can take 10-15 years off their facial appearance with a single upper facelift procedure.
Brow lifts are done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Incisions are made behind the hairline and are easily concealable making your procedure an inconspicuous one. Recovery is fairly straightforward with most patients getting back to their normal routine within 1-2 weeks. Enjoy natural-looking results that make people wonder what your new skincare regime might be.

Am I a Candidate for a Brow Lift?
You may be a good fit for brow lift procedures if your primary concerns are on the upper portion of the face. Ideally, you will retain some facial fullness on the upper cheeks, the under-eye area, and have minimal skin laxity on the mid-to-lower face. During a brow lift procedure, I will meticulously work to reposition the hairline and minimize;
- Vertical Wrinkles Between the Brows
- Horizontal Forehead Lines
- Droopy or Overhanging Eyebrows
In some cases, you may be a good candidate for combination procedures including an eyelid lift. While a brow lift is a fantastic procedure on its own, a blepharoplasty can do wonders for patients that appear tired, sad, or angry due to puffy or sagging eyelids.
During your in-person consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns in detail and talk about what you’d like to get out of your surgery. Afterward, I’ll create a customized surgical plan to help you safely and effectively meet your end-goals. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, I’ve been able to provide countless patients with natural-looking results they love.
