Brow Lift Surgery

A brow lift can remove wrinkles from your forehead and reduce the prominence of sagging eyebrows. The forehead area is among the first places to show the signs of facial aging. Furrows, deep wrinkles, and drooping skin may become more apparent as you get older. Our Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth, and his surgical team perform brow lift surgery to restore youthfulness to your expression.

What Is A Brow Lift In Atlanta?

Some of the earliest and most prominent signs of facial aging appear on your forehead. Over time, skin begins to lose volume and elasticity in the brow and temple area. Frown lines (vertical creases between your eyebrows), wrinkling across your forehead, and drooping eyebrows can begin to show in your early thirties, making you look tired, angry, sad, and even confused when that is not what you are feeling at all.

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer surgical brow lifts in Atlanta, to return your brow to a more youthful shape and position. A forehead lift can dramatically minimize the creases and wrinkles located across the forehead and between the eyebrows. Thanks to modern technology and medical advances, today’s brow lift techniques can produce more natural-looking results than in the past.

What Are The Benefits Of A Forehead Lift?

Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team recommend brow lifts to men and women between thirty-five to sixty years old who have lines and creases around the forehead and brows that have dropped lower over the eyes.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For A Brow Lift In Atlanta?

Patients who experience drooping and sagging or lines and wrinkles may be ideal candidates for a brow lift. Brow lift allows patients to look more rested, alert, and youthful. There are many types of techniques we offer for brow lifts. The decision regarding which brow lift is right for you will be determined during your consultation at our Atlanta offices.

During your consultation for a brow lift Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth will encourage you to openly discuss your aesthetic goals before we thoroughly examine your brow to determine if your expectations can be achieved. We will then recommend a brow lift procedure based on your facial anatomy and what will work best for you, as our priority is that you are happy and satisfied with the final results. A brow lift is not recommended for correcting cosmetic concerns at the edge of the eyes or under the eyes.

What Are My Brow Lift Options?

Brow lift surgery is tailored to meet the procedure goals and specific anatomy of each patient. Before your brow lift, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will evaluate the treatment area and help determine which brow lift option may be right for you. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer many different brow lift surgery techniques, including:

Direct Brow Lift:

This procedure is performed through an incision made along the upper edge of the eyebrow. In some cases, the incision may be placed in a wrinkle close to the brow.

Mid Forehead Lift:

The mid forehead lift requires an incision placed in a deep crease in the middle of the forehead.

Endoscopic Brow Lift:

Endoscopic brow lift surgery is performed through small incisions hidden behind the hairline. A special telescope called an endoscope is used. This transmits images from below the skin. With this technique, your brow lift surgeon can carefully identify and release the muscles that pull your brow down. One advantage of the endoscopic approach is the small incisions and less post-operative numbness.

Open Forehead Lift:

The open forehead lift involves either a coronal incision, which extends from ear to ear and is hidden behind the hairline, a pre-trichal incision that is hidden in the front of the hairline, or a trichophytic incision that is zigzag-shaped and hidden in the fine hair of the hairline. Patients who need more brow elevation may be ideal candidates for an open forehead lift.

Some brow lift surgeries involve moving, rearranging, or weakening the muscles in your forehead and brow area. There are three main muscles in this part of your face, including:

The Corrugator Muscle:

This muscle pulls the innermost area of your eyebrows to the center of your forehead and downward, causing vertical wrinkles to form in the glabella area (the space between your eyebrows) and horizontal wrinkles to form on the bridge of your nose.

The Procerus Muscle:

This muscle runs from your nasal bone and cartilage at the side of your nose before fanning upwards to the center of your forehead. The procerus muscle pulls the skin at the center of your forehead down, causing transverse wrinkles to form in the glabella region and bridge of your nose.

The Frontalis Muscle:

This muscle runs from your hairline straight down to your eyebrows and is responsible for elevating your eyebrows and the skin of your forehead, forming horizontal wrinkles across your forehead. The inner (medial) and outer (lateral) parts of the frontalis muscle can function independently, and that is why some people can raise one eyebrow and not the other.

Because a brow lift is a very subtle procedure, it can make you look years younger without dramatically changing your overall appearance. Brow lift results typically last for five to ten years. Besides undergoing brow lift surgery for cosmetic reasons, many patients choose the procedure to improve their vision because excess skin above the eyes droop and impair vision. Although a brow lift can be performed as an isolated surgery, it is commonly combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), as together these procedures can provide a more rejuvenated look to the entire upper face. By reducing and tightening loose skin above the eyes, brow lift surgery can create a more refreshed and alert expression.

What Can I Expect During Brow Lift Surgery?

Most brow lift procedures are performed with local anesthesia and light sleep sedation, but general anesthesia may also be an option. The length and placement of your incisions will be dependent on the type of brow lift you are having.

Generally, during your eyebrow lift, your Atlanta brow lift surgeon will gently elevate the skin and muscles of your forehead, remove loose skin and excess fat in the brow line, and rearrange the muscles of your forehead (when necessary) before lifting your brow skin to its new position. Upon completion of your brow lift surgery, the incision will be closed with sutures or staples and a dressing will be applied to your face and head to protect the incisions and encourage proper healing.

What Can I Expect After Brow Lift Surgery?

Following brow lift surgery, patients’ heads may be taped or loosely wrapped to eliminate post-operative swelling. In some cases, a drain may be placed to ease the healing process. It is recommended that patients avoid rigorous activity and exercise while recovering. Although recovery periods will vary depending on the type of brow lift performed and the individual goals of the patient.

After your brow lift surgery, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will provide you with specific post-operative instructions. It is important that patients follow these instructions with care to ensure the recovery period goes smoothly and patients achieve their desired results.

What Results Can I Expect From Brow Lift Surgery In Atlanta?

Patients will notice the results of their brow lift immediately. However, the results will continue to improve over the next few months as swelling goes down and the incision lines fade. To maintain the results of your brow lift in Atlanta, patients should practice lifelong sun protection and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

During your consultation for forehead lift in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his surgical team will conduct a thorough assessment of your anatomy to give you a clear understanding of what results to expect. Results will vary by patient depending on the patient’s goals for the procedure and the chose brow lift method.

How Much Does A Brow Lift In Atlanta Cost?

The extent of correction that is needed via a brow lift varies by patient, so the cost is very individualized. The cost of your brow lift is determined after your consultation. Payment is due at the time of the surgery, and Astra Plastic Surgery accepts cash, personal checks, credit cards, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
