What Is Brow Lift and Browpexy?

The brow lift—sometimes also known as a forehead lift—is a surgical procedure that enables Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS to lift your eyebrows and forehead skin, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. It’s quite common to notice that the aging process has caused your forehead or brow area to sag or droop, contributing to an appearance that can look tired, cranky, or haggard when you might feel the exact opposite on the inside. The brow lift can help to open up your expression, lending your face a more pleasing sense of visual harmony and enabling you to communicate to the world all the youthful vibrancy you feel on the inside.

The Benefits of Brow Lift and Browpexy

Browpexy is an ideal method by which Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS can address some incredibly common cosmetic concerns, helping you show the world a more open and inviting look while walking back the clock and taking years off your appearance. Dr. Rogers makes it a point to utilize his extensive training to create innovative solutions for each of his patients, as he understands that no two are unique.

Some of the reasons our patients love the brow lift include:

  • Reduced forehead wrinkles
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Elevated brows
  • Minimal scarring
  • Improved vision
  • Long-lasting results

Should I Consider a Brow Lift?

The ideal candidates for the brow lift will typically have sagging or drooping eyebrows that create a tired, angry, or sad appearance. They may also have deep horizontal lines or creases across the forehead or frown lines and vertical lines between the eyebrows. 

In addition, we recommend that you be in good overall health without any medical conditions that could interfere with healing. It is also important that you not smoke or be willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and slow down the healing process.

When you visit Dr. Rogers for your initial consultation, he’ll help you explore the procedures that are available to you, guiding you to the treatment option that’s ideal for you and helping you decide whether or not the brow lift is right for you.

The Day of Your Brow Lift Procedure

Anesthesia Options

The choice of anesthesia for a brow lift or browpexy procedure will depend on several factors. In general, a brow lift or browpexy may be performed using local anesthesia with sedation, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. Dr. Rogers will work with you to determine which option is ideal for you during your in-person consultation.

Procedure Length

The length of your procedure will depend on the specific technique used, with most brow lifts taking between one and three hours to complete, while browpexy is typically a shorter procedure that may take less than an hour. You’ll receive details describing your procedure well in advance of the actual day of your surgery.

Surgical Technique

This is typically done by making incisions in the hairline and repositioning the skin and underlying tissue. Brow lift can be done using different techniques, such as endoscopic brow lift, coronal, and temporal. This procedure can help to reduce wrinkles and frown lines, improve the appearance of sagging eyebrows, and create a more open and alert look.

Outpatient Procedure

Brow lift and mastopexy surgeries are performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you’ll get to head back home and begin the recovery process in the comfort of your own living space. It’s worth noting, however, that you will need a friend to drive you home, as the anesthesia will still be wearing off.

Your Recovery and Results

Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks after their surgery, but it’s important to note that every patient is different, and your surgical plan will be tailored to your unique physical characteristics and personal cosmetic goals. It generally takes several weeks for all of the swelling to resolve and for your final results to become fully visible. Dr. Rogers and his team will give you a clear recovery timeline and detailed aftercare instructions, along with everything you’ll need to remain as comfortable as possible while you rest and recover.
