Dr. Karan Mehta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, can help you address your aesthetic concerns related to an overly heavy brow. If you feel that your resting face looks sad, exhausted, or angry, a brow lift can significantly enhance your appearance.

Elevate Your Brow To
A Youthful Position

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to elevate the position of the eyebrows and rejuvenate the appearance of the forehead. This procedure aims to correct sagging brows, deep forehead lines, and furrows between the eyebrows, which can contribute to a tired, aged, or stern expression. By lifting the brow to a more youthful position, a brow lift can give you a more youthful and approachable look.

Brow Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Deep forehead lines
  • Furrows between the eyebrows
  • Heavy or drooping brow
  • Excess skin or tissue in the forehead area
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Uneven or asymmetrical brow position
  • Tired or aged appearance caused by brow position

Brow Lift Surgical Details

Dr. Mehta will perform your brow lift under general anesthesia using an endoscopic technique, which takes 1 to 2 hours. The endoscopic technique involves making tiny incisions within the hairline. This approach allows for minimal, well-concealed scarring. The use of a small fiber-optic tube attached to a camera aids in achieving optimal results.

Through small (one-eighth of an inch) incisions, Dr. Mehta gains access to the internal structures of the forehead using the endoscope’s video camera. This eliminates the need for a long incision often used in other brow lift methods. By repositioning the skin, underlying tissues, and muscles of the forehead, he can smooth away expression lines and gently lift the brows. This results in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Candidates for Brow Lift:

  • Individuals with sagging or drooping eyebrows
  • Those with deep forehead lines and furrows
  • People with a heavy or tired appearance in the brow area
  • Those looking to achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance
  • People with a stern or angry facial expression due to the position of their eyebrows
  • Those who want to improve their overall facial harmony and balance
  • Individuals with realistic expectations and good overall health
  • Those who have no medical conditions that may impair healing

The Recovery Process

After your brow lift, please follow proper post-operative care to ensure a smooth recovery. You can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the initial days following the surgery. Dr. Mehta may prescribe pain medication to help manage discomfort. Applying cold compresses and keeping your head elevated can also aid in reducing swelling. You must wear a supportive bandage or wrap around your forehead for the first few days.

Strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks to allow for proper healing. Most patients return to work and resume normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks, although this may vary depending on individual healing. Attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Mehta to monitor your progress and ensure optimal results. By adhering to post-operative instructions and allowing time to heal, you can expect gradual improvements over a few weeks.
