Introduction to Brow Lift

Your brow’s positioning can have a very serious effect on your facial appearance, particularly on the region around the eyes. While the descent of your brows may not be as obvious as other regions of your face, it does occur and can result in significant aesthetic changes. A low brow can sometimes be mistaken for eyelid aging as it obscures this area, contributing to that tired appearance. When performed properly in selected patients, Brow lifts can lead to very nice and natural results. Whether you seek to correct sagging eyebrows, reduce forehead lines, or achieve a more youthful gaze, at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale, our tailored Brow Lift procedures are designed to meet your unique desires.

What are the benefits of a Brow Lift?

Many of our Scottsdale Brow Lift patients have enjoyed the following benefits from their surgery:

  • Diminished forehead lines
  • Excess skin is removed
  • Gets rid of the “tired” or “angry’ look
  • Improved vision by opening up your eyes
  • Improved forehead appearance
  • Long-lasting results
  • Reduced sagging of upper eyelids
  • The natural arch of your eyebrows is restored

What is a Brow Lift?

A Brow Lift (also referred to as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift) is a surgical procedure designed to elevate a drooping eyebrow that may contribute to an older appearance and obstruct vision. A brow lift is performed either as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with an upper eyelid lift.

In addition to unpleasant facial expressions, brow descent will lead to a “crowding” of the eyes by excess eyelid skin. The “hooding” of eyelid skin, in addition to the feeling of eyelid heaviness, will often lead to a subconscious drive to use your forehead muscles to counteract the drooping brow. Though this action is the development of forehead creases and lines that will deepen over time.

A Brow lift or forehead lift, often in combination with fat grafting to restore volume, can significantly improve these facial features, and restore a person’s naturally rested, rejuvenated appearance. Not only will the elevation of the brow lead to a more “open and alert” appearance to the eyes, but it will also naturally diminish the development of the forehead lines which leads to a more aged appearance.

Who Are The
Best Candidates For
The Brow Lift procedure?

Dr. Alexander Golger and our team believe that any adult can be a great candidate for a Brow Lift in Scottsdale. Ideal candidates should have the following characteristics:

  • Be in good general health
  • Have wrinkles and sagging skin in the area around the eyes and forehead that they want to get rid of
  • Maintain realistic expectations for results
  • No history of bleeding, clotting, or negative reactions to anesthesia

What’s the First Step?

If you are interested in getting a Brow Lift in Scottsdale, your first step will be to contact our office nearest you for a personal consultation with Dr. Golger. During this appointment, you will be able to discuss the aesthetic goals you have for your forehead, ask any questions, and address any concerns. Dr. Gogler will examine your forehead and the rest of your face, and create a surgical plan that he believes will best suit you.

After you and Dr. Golger agree on a surgical plan, you will be able to schedule your surgical appointment with our patient coordinator, who will also provide you with instructions to follow before your procedure.

It is very important to be honest about your medical history during this consultation to ensure the best, most positive results and avoid any potential risks.

What to expect on the day of Brow Lift surgery

On the day of your Brow Lift, we aim to have you feeling not only confident but also exhilarated about the “new” you. We begin by administering anesthesia in the form of general anesthesia or intravenous sedation; this will be determined in consultation. Dr. Golger can perform each lift in various ways to achieve your desired outcome. Regardless of the techniques, a Brow Lift procedure follows the same multi-step plan:

  • Coronal incisions or endoscopic incisions are made (a very thin tube with a lighted camera is used for precision)
  • Adjustment of muscles and other tissue under your skin
  • The forehead skin is lifted to the desired position
  • Incisions are closed with adhesives, clips, or sutures

Brow Lift Recovery

After your Brow Lift, you will be able to return home once our team releases you. We strongly recommend that you have a family member or friend provide you with a ride home. Our patients are encouraged to take the first week off from work so that they can recover comfortably.

While you are recovering, you will probably experience some slight discomfort and tightness throughout your forehead. You can also expect swelling and bruising to occur, which usually subsides after two weeks. Dr. Golger will also prescribe you some temporary pain medication to ease any pain during the beginning stages of your recovery.

After the first week of your surgery, you will need to return for a follow-up appointment where Dr. Golger will remove the sutures from your head and examine your healing. At this time, you will be able to return to a sedentary position at work, but you may notice that you might become tired a little faster than usual, so an initially limited work schedule is advised. Within two to four weeks post-surgery, you can gradually resume exercise with Dr. Golger’s clearance.

Despite the technique you receive, most patients usually return to their normal daily routine in one to two weeks.
