As we age, the skin on our brow and forehead area begins to lose elasticity. When such loss occurs, it creates an older appearance to the forehead.
The eyes, brows, and forehead are among the prominent features of the face when it comes to revealing age. Our Brow Lift surgery can help rejuvenate wrinkled, sagging brows and achieve a more youthful, refreshed-looking face. If your goal is to improve your facial features by elevating sagging or heavy-set brows, this procedure is for you.
Everyone wants beautiful eyebrows that express emotion, show expression, and define the eyes.. A subtle brow lift procedure by Guerra Plastic Surgery Center can address this aesthetic concern and enhance your natural beauty in many ways:
You are a good candidate for a brow and forehead lift if your eyebrows are sagging or you have skin laxity, creases, and deep lines on your forehead. Furthermore, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you should be:
During a brow lift surgery, our Arizona plastic surgeon, Dr. Scott Ogley, will create three to five small incisions strategically hidden behind your hairline, which will be unnoticeable once healed. We usually perform brow lift surgeries using an endoscope–a small device used to examine a specific area inside the body.
We will gently place the endoscope through the incisions, which gives a clear visual beneath the skin without needing to create larger incisions. After this, we will elevate the skin and muscle of the forehead to remove excess or sagging skin. The result is a smooth brow area and eyes that look brighter and years younger.
Your designated cosmetic surgeon can determine your needs during a one-on-one consultation, where he will listen to your concerns, perform a physical evaluation, and conduct an extensive review of your medical history. He will then select the most appropriate technique for you, which can be any of these advanced brow lift options:
The endoscopic lift is the preferred method of many plastic surgeons, as it requires minuscule, minimally invasive incisions. An endoscope’s tubular camera provides a high level of accuracy and precision, allowing your doctor to avoid the nerves near your eyebrows during surgery. Your results will be natural, seamless, and permanent. Moreover, the recovery time is only about one week.
The temporal lift, also called a lateral brow lift, addresses a smaller region of the brow, reducing downtime and significant scarring. This technique is best for patients who are just beginning to show signs of aging in the forehead. We often combine a temporal brow lift with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to brighten the facial expression and soften the smile of our patients.
This long-established technique is sometimes referred to as an open brow lift. The incision stretches from ear to ear, crossing the scalp. This approach is beneficial for clients with shorter foreheads who want to raise their hairline.
If you are looking for a non-invasive alternative to a surgical brow lift, neuromodulators such as Dysport and BOTOX can elevate your brows temporarily. Our aesthetician will inject the product into your orbicularis oculi muscles (responsible for developing crow’s feet) and the procerus and corrugator muscles (responsible for causing fine lines in the forehead). This approach is ideal for younger patients with minimal signs of aging.

After completing your brow lift procedure, we will carefully bandage the area to promote healing. Most patients don’t experience too much swelling or bruising with a brow lift. However, you may experience some temporary numbness in your forehead and scalp for several months following the procedure, which will dissipate over time.

Dr. Scott Ogley takes a minimalist approach to produce results that look as natural as possible. His objective is to deliver an outcome that is in harmony with the rest of your face, ensuring your features are flattering rather than distracting.
As with most surgical procedures, scarring will fade over time. Post-operative scars will also be minimal, as the incisions are small and hidden within your hairline. They should not be visible unless you look at them closely in front of a mirror.
Some pain or discomfort may be present during the healing phase. You can manage this discomfort with prescribed pain medications and through the help of cold compresses. Follow all of your doctor’s aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
