The brow, which includes the forehead and eyebrows, is an extremely important cosmetic unit of the face. Through facial plastic surgery, the position of the brow can be elevated to create a significant impact on their overall appearance. Often, many times people focus more on their eyelids and lower face, overlooking how aged and tired a sagging brow can make them look. Over time and under gravity's effect, the brow position naturally drops lower. This causes a number of cosmetic concerns.
Drooping of the brow frequently creates an angry or tired look, and can also negatively affect the appearance of the upper eyelids. In severe cases, the brow can even block a patient's vision when looking in an upward direction. By elevating the brow to its natural position with brow lift surgery, my Phoenix and Scottsdale patients attain a rejuvenated forehead as well as improved appearance of the upper eyelids.

Many people are nervous about having a brow lift because they have the mistaken belief that they will end up with a "surprised" look. When I perform a brow lift, my goal is never to raise the brows above their original anatomic position, or to create a "pulled" forehead. Rather, I strive to replace the brow to its natural position, restoring the delicate arch of the eyebrows in women, and keeping a straighter, masculine brow position in men.
Brow Lift Techniques
There are many techniques that I use for brow lifts, each of which has its own special advantages. Which technique I use is based on each patient's unique anatomy, as well as his or her overall preferences and goals, which we will discuss in depth during a cosmetic surgery consultation. Most frequently, I perform what is called a "subcutaneous browlift." In this procedure, two fine incisions are made at the hairline, and direct dissection under the skin, but over the muscles and nerves, is used to elevate the brow to minimize pain, swelling, and numbness.
If you are interested in learning more about what to expect during the recovery process following a brow lift, I encourage you to read cosmetic surgery FAQs (frequently asked questions) about post-operative issues such as care for incisions, time away from work, and ability to engage in exercise and other activities.
