About Brow Lift Surgery

Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis understands that brows sag as you age and deep wrinkles can be created on the forehead from years of facial expressions, which is why he offers brow lift surgery at Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach and Dublin, CA. A brow lift is designed to restore the appearance of the eyebrows and forehead. However, the degree of achievement depends on the severity of the initial deformity and the elasticity of your skin tissue. The overall goal is to reduce the wrinkles which develop across the forehead, between the eyes, and the bridge of the nose. The procedure also raises sagging brows which cover the upper eyelids to create a more alert and youthful appearance.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for brow lift surgery:

  • Have excess skin creating folds and creases
  • Droopy eyelids and eyebrows
  • Dynamic wrinkles on their brow
  • Want a long-lasting solution

What To Expect

Most brow lift surgeries are performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center. For brow surgery, small incisions are  placed in low visibility areas, such as behind the hairline or in the eyebrows. The most common brow lift techniques are the open brow lift, limited incision brow lift, and endoscopic brow lift, which will be chosen based on the patient's goals and their individual features. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will remove any excess skin, then smooth and re-position the muscles and soft tissue to smooth wrinkles and lines while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.

Anticipated Results

Brow lift surgery usually takes about 2 hours and once the patient has been cleared by the doctor, they may be taken home by a responsible adult to recover at home. Most patients take 1 – 3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to work in 1 week. For the first days after the surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. The doctor will talk to each patient about what they need to do during their recovery and provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment in 1 week to have their sutures removed and so their healing progress can be checked. While visible improvements can be seen immediately, the final results of the brow lift are usually seen about 4 – 6 months after the surgery.
