What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, sometimes referred to as a forehead lift, is a meticulous surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin of the forehead, aiming to achieve a more youthful and revitalized appearance. Through carefully placed incisions discreetly hidden within the natural hairline, Dr. Poulos gently elevates the skin and underlying muscles of the brow. This technique effectively smooths out forehead creases, reduces the prominent "11s" between the eyebrows, and diminishes wrinkles around the eyes. Lifting the eyebrows to a more natural position alleviates the tired and heavy appearance that can obscure the eyes. The result is a smoother, firmer forehead contour, enhancing a more approachable, youthful, and refreshed look.

Benefits of a Brow Lift

This elegant procedure offers a range of benefits designed to enhance your facial appearance and restore a youthful look, including: 

  • Reduces frown lines and raises the brows
  • Combats fine lines or lax skin along the forehead
  • It can be combined with other procedures for a complete revival of one’s youthful appearance
  • Others may comment on how “well-rested” you look

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brow Lift?

Our brow lift in Worcester and Northborough may be a great option for those experiencing signs of aging, such as brow sagging, skin laxity, and forehead creases. If you have noticed your brow drooping or developed lines on your forehead, you might consider this procedure. Ideal candidates typically:

  • Are able to safely undergo surgical procedures
  • Maintain good overall physical health
  • Are non-smokers
  • Are free from ongoing infections
  • Do not use blood-thinning medications or supplements

We encourage you to schedule a consultation to explore how Dr. Poulos can help address sagging brows and determine if a brow lift is right for you.

The Brow Lift Procedure: What to Expect

During a brow lift procedure, small incisions are strategically placed behind the hairline to minimize visible scarring after healing. This technique allows for gentle elevation of the forehead skin and underlying muscles, effectively addressing excess or sagging skin. The outcome is a smoother, more youthful brow that enhances the eyes' appearance. For those considering a brow lift or wanting more information about the procedure, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Poulos is encouraged. This consultation will provide an opportunity to discuss options and understand how a brow lift can achieve your aesthetic goals effectively.

A Wealth of Options

When it comes to enhancing your brow with a lift, Dr. Poulos offers a wealth of options tailored to your specific needs and goals. Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan designed to achieve their desired outcome. These options include:

  • Endoscopic Lift: A preferred method for many plastic surgeons, using small, minimally invasive incisions and an endoscope for superior accuracy and precision.
  • Coronal Lift: A long-standing, conventional technique with an incision stretching from ear to ear, beneficial for patients with shorter foreheads who wish to lift their hairline.
  • Temporal Lift: A lateral brow lift targets a smaller area of the brow, reducing recovery time and minimizing visible scarring.
  • Non-surgical Brow Lift: For those who seek a noninvasive approach, neuromodulators such as BOTOX and Dysport can temporarily elevate the brows in younger clients with minimal signs of aging.

What Will My Recovery Entail? 

After your brow lift procedure, we carefully bandage the treated area to support healing and optimize results. Most patients experience minimal bruising and swelling, allowing for a relatively comfortable recovery. It's normal to feel temporary numbness in the forehead and scalp area for a few months post-surgery, which gradually resolves. As your face naturally rejuvenates, you'll notice a smoother, more youthful appearance, with a firmer forehead contour that enhances a rested, friendly look. The result? A refreshed and revitalized appearance that reflects your inner vitality.
