About Brow Lift Surgery
Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, understands that the forehead and eyebrow region often shows noticeable signs of early aging. Loosening of the forehead skin and muscles can cause deepening forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, and even worsened eyelid hooding. An well-performed forehead lift, browplasty, or brow lift can address these issues to create a natural and youthful appearance.
During a brow lift, the forehead skin is lifted and tightened. This process repositions and raises the eyebrows to soften frown lines for a smoother appearance. It also significantly diminishes the horizontal lines and furrows that can make patients appear angry, sad, tired, or aged.The result is a more youthful, awake, and refreshed profile. A brow lift may be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift, or eyelid surgery. Brow lift surgery is individualized for each patient and Dr. Stile will recommend a specific technique that meets your needs for optimal results.
The best candidates for brow lift surgery:
- Have excess skin creating folds and creases
- Droopy eyelids and eyebrows
- Dynamic wrinkles on their brow
- Want a long-lasting solution
- Do not need a full facelift
"Dr. Stiles and his caring and wonderful staff are amazing! From when you call in and feel like a star! To the beautiful office and patient rooms. No paper gowns here, you get a super soft and comfy robe :) To the consultation where Dr. Stiles actually takes the time to listen to you and answer any questions. On Pre-op day they give you a personalized book with everything you could possibly need to know and what to expect. Also all the prescriptions were thought out with experience and care. I loved being prepared and not worrying because the Dr. and his staff know what to expect and spelled it out for me. On The day of surgery it was just me and my nurse. She only had me as a patient so she was able to sit with me and talk to me and wasn't running all around making you feel more nervous. (If you have ever had a surgery you know what I mean.) But that's not all I had a huge stomach after 5 c-sections and Dr.Stiles was able to perform an extended tummy tuck on me with muscle repair and 2 areas of Lipo. He is an artist and took away 11lbs of skin!!! As if that wasn't enough he gave me back my "normal". No hiding in big shirts and feeling embarrassed and self conscience. My results have exceeded my expectations and I smile more and stand taller everyday!! Plus all the extra eyes and compliments don't hurt Do yourself a huge favor and go to Dr. Stiles he is highly rated and accredited! Which you can't put a price on that!"- A.M. / Yelp / May 05, 2018

What To Expect
Most brow lift surgeries are performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center. For brow surgery, small incisions are placed in low visibility areas, such as behind the hairline or in the eyebrows. The most common brow lift techniques are the open brow lift, limited incision brow lift, and endoscopic brow lift, which will be chosen based on the patient's goals and their individual features. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will remove any excess skin, then smooth and re-position the muscles and soft tissue to smooth wrinkles and lines while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.
Brow lift surgery usually takes about 2 hours and once the patient has been cleared by the doctor, they may be taken home by a responsible adult to recover at home. Most patients take 1 – 3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to work in 2 weeks. For the first days after the surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. The doctor will talk to each patient about what they need to do during their recovery and provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment in 1 week to have their sutures removed and so their healing progress can be checked. While visible improvements can be seen immediately, the final results of the brow lift are usually seen about 4 – 6 months after the surgery.
Plan Your Procedure
Awake, Alert, Ageless
Many patients fear that a brow lift will leave them looking permanently surprised, unnaturally wide eyed, or like they have obviously had plastic surgery. A plastic surgeon with experience in brow lift surgery will focus on creating a younger, natural-looking appearance that refreshes the face. Using simulation software, the surgeon and patient can decide how dramatic or how subtle they want the results to be. After brow lift surgery, patients will look more awake, more alert, and more like the age they feel.
