Brow Lift in Melville, NY
Brow lift surgery, also called a forehead lift or browplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that restores a lifted brow position and a more youthful look to the upper portion of the face. A heavy, drooping brow can give the impression that you are angry or tired. A brow lift subtly lifts and smooths your brow for a significantly refreshed appearance.

Our procedures are 100 percent customized for optimal results and a smoother and softer appearance.
Ideal candidates for eyebrow lift surgery
As you age, your skin elasticity decreases, which causes your skin to sag. This effect appears on the upper face and affects both women and men. When looking in a mirror, do you feel you appear angry or tired, see deep wrinkles between your eyebrows, or see that your eyebrows have drifted lower over time? A brow lift at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery could be the ideal aesthetic procedure for you.

Surgical technique for eyebrow lift
Before surgery, anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. A brow lift may be performed with IV sedation or general anesthesia based on the extent of the procedure. The incision for a browplasty is selected carefully and will reflect your unique condition. Some of the techniques that may be used in a brow lift include:
This is the open brow lift incision, which puts the surgical incision behind the hairline at the top of the head. This incision not only hides scars, but it also allows a certain amount of lift control throughout the surgery. This type of incision is ideal for people with both frown lines and a sagging brow. The traditional brow lift is the preferred method for patients who are concerned about a receding hairline.
Endoscopic forehead lift
An endoscopic lift is an advanced surgical technique for brow lift surgery. This method makes multiple small incisions within the hairline through which a tool known as an endoscope is placed. This surgical tool is moved beneath the eyebrow to release the tissues. Visually guided by the endoscope camera, the brow tissues are repositioned with stitches to put the brow in a better position.
The trichophytic incision is made directly against the patient’s hairline. It permits a more dramatic lift in the brow for men and women and has a lower risk for hairline recession.
Lateral brow lift
Also called a temporal browplasty, the lateral method places the incision in the hairline slightly over the temples. It permits the outer parts of the brow to be lifted and works well for visible sagging on the outer brow. It also helps to smooth crow’s feet.

What is the recovery after a brow lift?
The recovery period after a brow lift varies based on technique. You can expect more post-surgery swelling and discomfort after surgery with the traditional approach rather than the temporal or endoscopic method. In general, you can expect some swelling and bruising on the upper portion of the face, around the eyebrows, and possibly near the eyes. Cold compresses can help diminish inflammation.
We recommend sleeping with several pillows to keep your head elevated for the first several nights after a brow lift. It is critical to avoid any activities or movements that put pressure on your face. The typical recovery period from a brow lift is about two to three weeks. The results appear almost at once, with a refreshed appearance that seems more alert, softer, and has a visible improvement in sagging skin and fine lines in the upper face.
