Brow Lift Conveniently located to serve Miami and Dade County

A brow lift, also often referred to as a forehead lift, is a procedure used to lift and define sagging eyebrows and smooth away forehead wrinkles. A brow lift in Fort Lauderdale is performed by tightening the tissues of the forehead and removing excess tissue.

Ideal Candidates for a Brow Lift

The brow and forehead have an enormous impact on expression and should be evaluated in any patient wishing to look younger or more awake, alert, and pleasant. The youthful brow is full with non-redundant, taut, smooth skin. If you look at fashion magazines, you’ll notice that a higher position of the tail of the brow(lateral) compared to the head of the brow(in center) is prevalent and associated with a more refined look and younger look.

As the brow ages, the brow loses fullness and starts to fall. As we lose facial fat during normal aging, the bones in our face, especially around our eyes, become more evident. Also, the tail of the brow starts to drop and increased skin excess and wrinkle formation in the area outside the eye, sometimes referred to as crow’s feet, become more noticeable.

People generally decide to go for a brow lift if they have sagging brows, frustrating age lines on the forehead, or brow asymmetry. Brow lifts are extremely helpful in restoring a more youthful look.

Brow Lift Techniques

As with the lower eyelid, there are multiple options to address the specific causes of the aged upper brow. Treatment can range from simple office-based procedures with no inconvenience to more involved surgical correction using advanced techniques such as an endoscopic brow lift, volume replacement with fat injections or laser resurfacing.

In the traditional forehead lift, a single incision is made that starts at the ear level and goes up around the hairline. This is typically made behind the hairline to camouflage any post-surgical marks.

The endoscopic brow lift is a less-invasive option. Dr Rodriguez will make three to five shorter incisions in the hairline area. This will allow him to insert an endoscope, a tiny instrument with a camera and a light. The camera is attached to a monitor, allowing Dr. Rodriguez to see a very detailed view of the underlying tissues. He will use a secondary instrument to make the required changes to the tissues.

As a specialist among specialist, with a particular research and surgical interest with improving brow and eyes, Dr Rodriguez insight will help determine which is the right procedure for you.

The Brow Lift Procedure

Local anesthesia and sedation will be administered at the start of the brow lift process. In some cases, general anesthesia may instead be necessary. Anesthesia will ensure a painless procedure for the patient.

After the chosen incisions are made, the muscles and/or skin are tightened, and excess tissue is removed. Finally, Dr. Rodriguez will close the incision using stitches or other closure techniques. Your face and hair will be washed in order to avoid any scalp irritation.

Recovery After the Procedure

During the recovery and healing process, patients need to deal with bruising and swelling in the area. These will be temporary, and cold compresses will help resolve them. The head must be kept elevated for two days after the procedure. Time off from work will be required, and patients must avoid physically strenuous activities for around four weeks.

Brow Lift Cost

The cost of a brow lift is impacted by a number of details. The technique chosen affects the overall price of the procedure, as does the total surgical time and the anesthesia used.
