The forehead often shows the telltale signs of aging early on. Frown lines or creases—known as dynamic lines—can etch themselves into the forehead in your 20s. As we age, the face can take on the appearance of extreme fatigue or even anger. This often results from a drooping forehead and/or heavy, hooded eyes, generally due to age-related skin and muscle laxity. A brow lift is a surgical procedure that tightens and lifts the brow, resulting in a more youthful, alert appearance.

There are important differences between the surgical treatments listed above.
The best candidates for a brow lift surgery have low brows, hooding to the upper lid that is alleviated when the brow is manually manipulated to a higher, “more correct” position, a diminished brow arch, or a brow arch that resides in the eye socket.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Crispin will carefully consider the effects of aging on your face as a whole and the areas you want refreshed. Together, you will select the least invasive procedure(s) that will result in a natural, balanced look.
An endoscopic brow lift is preferable when possible because of its many benefits. This technique requires only very small incisions along the hairline, through which Dr. Crispin can gently lift the muscles, tissue, and skin of your forehead into an elevated, smoother position. Thanks to the small incisions, this technique may minimize both surgical and recovery time.
Your brow lift may be customized to your unique features. Dr. Crispin may place incisions at the brow itself, at the hairline, or behind the hairline. The scars will be located as discreetly as possible.
Many patients return to work or to normal activity within 3 to 4 days. Exercise is restricted for 1 week. Strenuous or aerobic exercise may be resumed in 3 to 4 weeks. Swelling and bruising substantially subside between 1 and 3 weeks after the procedure.
1) What makes a good brow lift?
Subtle elevation makes a very aesthetic brow lift. You do not want the brows to be pulled too high, which can result in a surprised look.
2) I need a brow lift and an upper blepharoplasty. Can both surgeries be performed simultaneously?
Yes. Care needs to be exercised not to remove too much skin or elevate the brow. Dr. Crispin will ensure that your final results appear natural rather than artificially enhanced.
3) Will a brow lift remove my frown lines?
A brow lift will reduce but not remove dynamic lines. Botox injections will help smooth any residual creasing.
4) Will a brow lift remove my crow’s feet?
No. Botox injections will relax the muscles that surround the corners of your eyes, resulting in a smother appearance around the eyes.
My brows were so low and made me look mad at all times. I was scared when Dr. Crispin mentioned I would benefit from a brow lift. He was my plastic surgeon for my breast lift and augmentation years prior but somehow facial surgery seemed scarier. Pondered over the procedure for months and finally said let’s go for it. Never felt as confident as I do now. I get complimented all the time at how refreshed and beautiful I look and nobody knew I had surgery. Love my results so much!
