Brow Lift

Sagging brows and forehead wrinkles can create a perpetually upset and aged appearance. Men and women who desire a more youthful and approachable aesthetic may consider brow lift surgery. Dr. Mendieta performs this procedure by removing excess tissue, tightening the skin and muscle, and smoothing out creases, restoring and brightening the upper face.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for brow lift surgery must be non-smokers who have realistic expectations of their results. Dr. Mendieta will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your condition during your brow lift consultation to devise a surgical plan tailored to meet your needs. Brow lift surgery can address the following concerns:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Creases between the brows
  • Drooping eyebrows

Brow Lift Procedure

Brow lift surgery corrects signs of aging in the upper face, raising the eyebrows to a more youthful position and smoothing facial creases. Depending on the desired extent of correction as well as the patient’s preferences and health, local or general anesthesia may be administered during this procedure. It may take between one and three hours to complete.


  • Techniques

    • Endoscopic brow lift surgery involves inserting a small camera into the treatment area through several tiny incisions within the hairline. The forehead muscles are tightened, excess skin is excised, and the incisions are closed with sutures.
    • Traditional brow lift surgery involves placing incisions in the scalp along the hairline and, when appropriate, in the forehead or upper eyelids. This technique allows Dr. Mendieta to lift the forehead muscles and remove excess skin. Incisions are then closed with sutures.
  • Combinations

    Many patients have multiple areas of concern that they would like to revitalize. To produce overall facial rejuvenation, brow lift surgery may be combined with other procedures, including:

Recovery

Some minor swelling, bruising, and pain can be expected after brow lift surgery. Patients who qualify for endoscopic brow lift surgery may experience a faster recovery period. Side effects should resolve significantly within one week, at which point most patients return to work. Pain medication will be prescribed to manage discomfort during recovery.

Exercise

Exercise and other physical activities must be limited for at least four weeks to ensure optimal healing and prevent postoperative complications. Dr. Mendieta will review your recovery timeline during your consultation.

Results

Patients typically notice an improvement immediately after surgery, but it may take up to six months to see the final outcome of a brow lift procedure. Brow lift surgery does not halt the aging process, but, with adequate sun protection and a healthy lifestyle, results are expected to last for many years.
