Brow Lift

The position of the eyebrows contributes greatly to the cosmetic appearance of the eyes and face as a whole.  Gravity and age cause the brows to drop with time, creating a heavy, tired and aged appearance.  Addressing the eyelids without regard for the brows can incompletely correct the periorbital area and does not improve the appearance of the eyelids.

Reasons for considering a Browlift

  • Tired appearance to the eyes
  • Deep creases in the forehead even at rest
  • Droopy appearance to the eyebrows

The Procedure
The browlift can be performed through incisions in the scalp, the hairline or through the same incision made for eyelid surgery. (blepharoplasty).  In some cases a fiberoptic scope is used to facilitate the operation.  Which approach is performed depends on the needs of the patient, and Dr. Piasecki will thoroughly discuss his recommendations with you.

  • Anesthesia: Local or general
  • Length of surgery: 45 to 90 minutes
  • Length of stay:  Outpatient (home the same day)

Recovery Process

  • Back to work: 3 to 7 days
  • Exercise: May after 10 days
  • Discomfort: Mild to moderate (anticipate 2 to 3 days of prescription pain medication)
  • Swelling: Mild to moderate; should be gone in 2 to 3 weeks
  • Bruising: Common, but should fade 2 weeks following surgery
  • Bandages: Minimal
  • Final result: Appearance will improve for several months following surgery, but the most dramatic results are visible in the first 2 to 3 weeks.
