What is a Brow Lift?

A surgical brow lift (sometimes known as a browplasty or forehead lift) is a popular cosmetic treatment that helps raise the brow. This treatment helps the upper part of your face look more youthful. Often, a sagging brow can create a tired or angry appearance. A browplasty treats a sagging brow by removing excess skin from the forehead and lifting the eyebrows. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Michelle Eagan performs browplasty on patients to help them achieve a younger-looking appearance. Additionally, for an even softer and smoother appearance, we may combine a brow lift with an injectable. Please call us to schedule an appointment and learn more.

Is A Brow Lift For You?

As you get older, skin laxity starts to decrease and causes parts of the face to droop. Often, these signs of aging occur in the upper face. When looking in a mirror, do you appear angry or tired, notice frown lines in between your brows, or feel upset about a drooping brow? If so, a surgical brow lift at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana can address these concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will develop a personalized surgical plan that outlines the details of your treatment.

Surgical Technique

Before your surgery, Dr. Eagan will administer general anesthesia or IV sedation. We will determine the best sedation type based on the complexity of your surgery. Additionally, the incision technique depends on several factors, including the level of skin laxity, if we address the forehead, and the position of your hairline. Dr. Eagan may use a traditional, trichophytic, lateral brow lift, or the endoscopic forehead lift. Depending on your needs, we will select the best incision technique for you.

What to Expect

The recovery time for a brow lift surgery will vary for each person. Generally, the majority of discomfort and swelling occurs with an open incision technique. Temporal or endoscopic techniques are less invasive, which reduces the severity of side effects. No matter the type of incision, you will still experience some swelling and bruising in the upper face, near the eyebrows, and possibly around the eyes. For at least three days, you should use cold compresses to reduce inflammation. Additionally, Dr. Eagan recommends sleeping upright and avoiding any movement that places stress on your face. Typically, your recovery time is around 2 – 3 weeks. Right after the surgery, your complexion will appear softer, more alert, have fewer fine lines, and less sagging in the upper half of the face.

How much does a brow lift cost?

Rather than choosing the lowest price, we recommend finding an experienced surgeon who can help you achieve the results you want. The cost of brow lift surgery will depend on the technique, facility fees, and anesthesia. After creating your treatment plan, we will provide an estimate of your costs. To make your surgery more affordable, Dr. Eagan will also discuss payment options or low-interest medical financing.
