Brow Lift

Brow Lift in South Florida

Many women and men who come to Dr. Cooper to discuss their cosmetic options complain of looking tired, even when they are rested. This common concern can be due to heaviness and sagging in the forehead area, which causes the eyes to look stern or fatigued. This “permanent frown” can be alleviated with a brow lift at the South Florida plastic surgery practice of Dr. Robert Cooper.

Dr. Cooper can correct the furrowed, heavy brow that results from repeated facial expressions, sun exposure, or simply growing older. He can create the “calm brow” we associate with youth and vitality by removing excess tissue and altering the underlying muscles. The procedure is relatively straightforward, but the results are significant.

Is This Procedure Right for Me?

The brow lift or forehead lift procedure is an effective option for women and men whose forehead and brow area is wrinkled and sagging, and may be causing a heavy or hooded appearance over the eyes. While BOTOX® Cosmetic in South Florida can help with the early signs of aging in this area, it cannot lift and smooth a drooping, heavily creased forehead. The brow lift smoothes the brow, and repositions the eyebrows to give a more rested and attractive frame for the eyes.

The impact on the entire face can be quite dramatic, replacing a weary and tense facial expression with the smooth, relaxed brow we associate with youth, health, and confidence. Today’s brow lift can involve the smallest of incisions and yield a notable improvement in your overall facial appearance.

Your Brow Lift in South Florida

The brow lift can be done through a variety of incision patterns, any of which will be carefully concealed within the hairline. The traditional brow lift uses a full coronal incision, which runs across the crown of the head from ear to ear. However, newer endoscopic techniques are also an option. This type of brow lift typically uses a series of smaller incisions within the hairline. Dr. Cooper alters the muscles which contribute to the frowning appearance, causing them to relax. Wrinkles and creases are smoothed, and the brow is elevated to a more youthful position. The result is a refreshed eye area that appears more vibrant and “opened up.”

Recovery and Results

A brow lift is an outpatient procedure that is typically performed using local anesthesia with sedation. You will need someone to drive you home from the office, and to help you for the first day after surgery.

Patients typically experience minimal discomfort for a few days, which should be manageable with prescription or over-the-counter pain relievers. There will be some degree of swelling and bruising, which will subside noticeably over 10 to 14 days. Cold compresses should help with this. After a brief recovery period, you should be able to start showing off your new, more youthful look. Back to Top
