Brow Lift

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New York, NY

The brow area is often among the first to show signs of aging. Even in the late twenties and early thirties, furrows between the brows or horizontal creases can appear. Over time, the eyebrow may fall, affecting makeup application and possibly giving the appearance of additional skin on the upper eyelid, which could be mistaken for a need for an eyelid lift. The position of the eyebrows significantly influences the overall appearance of the face and can affect perceived age.

A double board certified facial plastic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Jennifer Levine uses advanced techniques to rejuvenate the brow, enhancing the natural contours of the upper face.

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to raise the eyebrows, reduce wrinkles, and restore a youthful appearance to the upper eyelids. This procedure can significantly improve the appearance of furrows, drooping brows, and excess skin, providing a refreshed and youthful look.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

  • Enhanced Facial Expression: Lifts sagging brows that can cause a tired or angry appearance.
  • Smoother Forehead: Reduces horizontal lines and furrows.
  • Youthful Appearance: Creates a more youthful and refreshed look by raising the eyebrows and tightening the skin.
  • Improved Eye Appearance: Can enhance the appearance of the eyes by reducing the droopiness of the upper eyelids.

The Brow Lift Surgery Process

Consultation The brow lift process begins with an in-depth consultation. During this session, Dr. Levine assesses the patient’s facial structure, discusses their concerns and goals, and reviews their medical history. She takes the time to understand the specific issues and explains the potential solutions and outcomes. This thorough evaluation helps in creating a customized surgical plan tailored to the patient’s unique needs.

Procedure The brow lift procedure is performed in a state-of-the-art surgical facility equipped with the latest technology. Dr. Levine may use various techniques to correct structural issues, refine facial contours, and improve both function and aesthetics. The surgery aims to lift the brow while ensuring minimal scarring and natural-looking results.

Recovery Recovery from a brow lift varies depending on the extent of the surgery. Initially, patients may experience swelling and bruising, which gradually subsides over a few weeks. Dr. Levine provides detailed post-operative care instructions to promote healing and achieve the best possible results. Most patients can return to their normal activities within two weeks, although full recovery and the final results may take several months. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor the healing process and ensure patient satisfaction.
