Whether they result from aging or genetics, drooping eyebrows, brow furrows, and forehead lines are a common concern among patients who want to rejuvenate their facial appearance. A brow lift performed by skilled Bergen County plastic surgeonTzvi Small can successfully address these issues. During your consultation, Dr. Small will determine if a brow lift is the best procedure to treat your personal aesthetic goals, and discuss the benefits and risks associated with brow lift surgery. It’s important to understand the pros and cons of any procedure, so let’s take a closer look at the risks and benefits of a brow lift.

What is a Brow Lift?

Brow lift surgery is an excellent choice for patients seeking to renew their facial appearance. The upper portion of our face contains hundreds of muscles that create the delicate movement of our eyebrows and forehead. Over time, these muscles can weaken and sag, creating the effect of an angry or tired appearance. A brow lift allows Dr. Small to carefully tighten the forehead muscles and remove excess fat and tissue to sculpt the forehead. The skin and tissues are placed higher up on the head to heal, resulting in added “lift” to the facial features.

Benefits of Brow Lift Surgery

Brow lift surgery is a popular procedure because of the many advantages it offers to patients. A brow lift is an effective treatment for drooping brows, heavy eyelids, and deep furrows on the forehead and between brows. It can also alter the placement of eyebrows and correct uneven brows. In addition to treating many cosmetic issues, a brow lift also features these benefits:

• Attractive, natural looking results
• Creates an invigorated, youthful appearance
• Results last for 10 years or more
• Reduces tension in forehead muscles
• Minimal incisions and scarring
• Can be performed in combination with other procedures, such as face lifts or eyelid surgery

Risks of Brow Lift Surgery

Complications associated with brow lift surgery are rare, but patients should be aware of possible risks prior to undergoing any surgical procedure. To avoid surgical side effects such as infection, excess scarring, or adverse reaction to aesthesia, it is essential for patients to only visit a board-certified, experienced surgeon. Brow lift procedures at our Bergen County facial plastic surgery center are performed by Dr. Small, who brings years of specialized surgical training and expertise to our patients. Although highly uncommon, risks of brow lift surgery include hair loss at the incision site, and difficulty moving forehead muscles or brows.
