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.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020
"Honestly this has been a difficult process both physically & emotionally but Dr. Eagan has been incredibly supportive. She is extremely caring, informative and most importantly she does beautiful work. It’s all been worth it. I love the results of my mastopexy. I highly recommend her & wouldn’t hesitate to go back to her for any future procedures."- V.S. / Yelp / Aug 06, 2021
"I first went to Dr. Eagon for under eye filler and a consultation for a breast augmentation and lift. The moment I meet Dr. Eagon she was the sweetest plastic surgeon I have ever meet. Previously I went to many plastic surgeons for consults and their personalities are not comparable to Dr. Eagon. After the filler was placed and my consultation was complete I knew she was the one! She was extremely thorough in the consultation and made me feel so comfortable. After the consultation I had my preop appointment and being a mom, I had to bring my kids. She was even more thorough at that appointment with a 3 year old present. She wasn’t even phased by his disruption and was so kind to my kids. Her receptionist was amazing through the entire process, as well. Now 2 weeks post op I love my results. I loved my results 2 days post surgery. Did I mention she called me the night I had surgery to call and check on me! That’s impressive. If your looking for a plastic surgeon I can’t recommend her enough. I encounter many physicians on a daily basis at work and I can tell you she is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met, and her work is amazing!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
"Michelle's expertise made the procedure a lot less painful than expected. I was definitely relieved. At every level, start to finish, she worked with me. It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, SHE'S THE BEST!"- A.C. / Google / Mar 24, 2021
"I had a few friends recommend Dr. Eagan to me. When I tell you I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and CRIED I mean it. I feel like a totally new person. I feel HOT and like I can take on the world. I got in my car, put on some music rolled down my windows and just sang which is so unlike me but how much better I feel about myself has changed everything. She was so sweet and gentle. I was really nervous walking in and she explained everything so patiently. I won’t be going to anyone else ever. I love love love my new lips and my new attitude."- K.B. / Google / Mar 19, 2021
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.
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.
