The Benefits of a Brow Lift
When you look in the mirror, does it seem like you’re constantly angry or frustrated? Does your external perception differ from how you feel on the inside? If your brows make it seem like you’re constantly frustrated, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. Patients who undergo surgical or non-surgical brow lifts often report a considerable improvement in social and professional lives because their enhanced appearance makes them seem more approachable. This article provides an overview of surgical and non-surgical brow lifts and how they can help you.
What Brow Lifts Are
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that addresses the signs of aging on the upper sections of the face. The surgery reduces or removes horizontal forehead lines, drooping fatty tissues, sagging skin tissues, and the furrows between your eyebrows. These changes significantly change your facial appearance, making you look youthful and pleasant as opposed to tired and frustrated.
During your brow lift consultation, the cosmetic surgeon performs a physical examination, examines your facial skin, discusses your cosmetic goals/ expectations, and curates the ideal surgical treatment plan. The doctor explains every step of the cosmetic surgery process, so you know exactly what to expect.
The brow lift procedure may be conducted using several techniques, such as trans-blepharoplasty, trichophytic, temporal, coronal, direct, and endoscopic. The cosmetic surgeon will examine your facial anatomy and goals — the best board-certified facial plastic surgeons recommend individualized treatment plans that address your unique needs.
Brow lifts are usually performed as outpatient procedures, allowing you to return home the same day. You’ll experience some swelling, bruising, and other symptoms for a few weeks, and you’ll have to take about one to two weeks off work. You’ll be socially presentable in a week or two, depending on the invasiveness of your procedure.
Benefits of A Brow Lift

Brow Lift + Eyelid Lift
Patients often combine their brow lifts with eyelid lifts, surgical procedures that address the loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid lifts remove some of the excess skin tissues and bulging fat around the eyelids, making your eyes seem younger. When combined together, these procedures enhance and rejuvenate your entire upper face.
In some cases, getting a brow lift without an eyelid lift may lead to insufficient results because the excess skin will continue making you seem angry. Dr. Sedgh will examine your facial skin and anatomy to determine if you would benefit from a combination of treatments.
Non-Surgical Brow Lifts
Are you concerned about going under the knife or the downtime? If so, you can also opt for non-surgical brow lifts, procedures that enhance your appearance with simple injectables that necessitate no incisions, surgeries, or downtime. During non-surgical brow lifts, our aesthetic experts inject specific solutions into strategically-targeted locations around your brows to smoothen your fine lines and add volume.
Non-surgical brow lifts can be performed with dermal fillers (Juvederm, Bellafill, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra) or neurotoxin modulators (BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau). Dermal fillers add volume, fill up fine lines, and encourage collagen production. Neurotoxins temporarily paralyze certain facial muscles to smoothen dynamic wrinkles, such as the forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
