Men and women from New Haven, Guilford, Madison, New London, Mystic and the surrounding area come to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Beth Collins’ practice for brow lift surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Collins rejuvenates the area above the eyes so that wrinkles and drooping skin are corrected, and the eyebrow arch is restored.

Who Should Get a Brow Lift?

The symptoms that motivate individuals to get the brow lift are common signs of aging:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar creases
  • Horizontal lines and furrows

However, the brow lift also addresses drooping or descended, asymmetric brows, or brows of generally distorted shape.

What Does the Brow Lift Do?

The brow lift, like other lift procedures, revives the problem area, resulting in a fresher, younger appearance. This rejuvenation is accomplished with tightening and elevation of the underlying brow tissues.

Techniques in brow lift surgery vary. The traditional method involves an incision across the top of the head, just behind the hairline. Dr. Collins will then lift the forehead skin in order to access the muscles and tissues below. After tightening these tissues, the overlying skin is re-draped so that the brows are elevated. The skin is then sutured behind the hairline. Stitches or clips are used to close the incisions.

An alternative technique known as the endoscopic brow lift uses four or five short incisions. Using a tiny viewing instrument, the doctor can see the underlying tissues and perform the brow lift.

In either technique, the operating time for the brow lift is between one to two hours. Local anesthesia with intravenous sedation is common, but general anesthesia is also an option.

After the Brow Lift: What Should I Expect?

If you follow Dr. Collins’ aftercare instructions, you can expect to return to your normal routine within seven to ten days after surgery. Directly after surgery you may experience numbness, nausea, incision discomfort and mild swelling, symptoms that can be controlled with pain medication. Avoid rigorous activity for several weeks and limit sun exposure for several months. You can expect the results of the brow lift to last between five to ten years.

Some people choose to further rejuvenate their upper face with complementary treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or NeoGraft® Hair Restoration.
