Brow Lift Q&A

What is a brow lift?

A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that smooths and tightens the forehead area. This type of surgery can eliminate forehead lines and furrows and correct drooping brows.This opens the eyes and creates a refreshed appearance to the upper portion of your face.

When is the right time to have a brow lift?

Most people who opt for brow lifts are over 40, with many patients in their 50s, 60s, and older. However, you might need or want the procedure earlier in life, especially if you develop deep lines in your forehead that aren’t treatable with non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

How are brow lifts performed?

There are a couple of approaches to brow lift. Dr. Cristel is an expert at endoscopic brow lifts with incisions hidden entirely within the hairline. The shape of the brow is then customized to each individual. 

The endoscopic approach greatly decreases the length of incisions and largely eliminates visible scarring. This technique also has lower numbness compared to other techniques. This option provides long-term results with a refreshed appearance to the forehead and eye region.

Dr. Cristel also performs brow lifts from the front of the hairline to both elevate the brows and lower the hairline position on the forehead. This can help with a receding hairline in the right patient.

Brow lifts are an excellent option to restore the upper portion of the face. These procedures are performed under general anesthesia and usually take about one hour. 

What other procedures can enhance a brow lift?

A brow lift can give you the beautiful, youthful, and smooth-looking forehead you wish for but the forehead is only about one-third of your face. To achieve the whole-face look you seek, you can combine a brow lift with other procedures, such as:

  • Facelift
  • Neck lift 
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
  • Buccal fat reduction
  • Facial fat grafting
  • Chin implant
  • Submental (under chin) liposuction 
  • Hair restoration

These procedures are all cosmetic, but Dr. Cristel is also a highly skilled surgeon with expertise in otoplasty, facial trauma reconstruction, skin cancer reconstruction, and full-spectrum head and neck surgery (pediatric and adult patients).
