what is Brow Lift Surgery?
Years of facial expressions can create deep wrinkles and furrows on your forehead, leaving you with a tired, aged, or even angry look all the time. Plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, who is board certified and dedicated to providing you with natural-looking results, can help erase some of the years from your upper face by performing a brow lift surgery. During this procedure, he will tighten your facial skin, remove any of the excess, and reshape and lift the soft tissues to provide you with a smoother, tighter facial structure. If you're ready to look more alert, refreshed, and youthful, then we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY. Dr. Mizuguchi will create a custom treatment plan just for you and your unique needs.

"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020

how is a brow lift performed?
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 your goals and your individual features. Once the incisions are made, our plastic surgeon will remove any excess skin, then reposition the muscles and soft tissue to smooth wrinkles and lines while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.
how long is recovery after a brow lift?
Brow lift surgery usually takes about two hours, and once you have been cleared by our surgeon, you may be taken home by a responsible adult to recover. Most patients take 1 – 3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to work in two weeks. For the first few days after the surgery, you should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. Our surgeon will talk to you about what you need to do during your recovery and provide tips for an easier process. You will need to return for a follow-up appointment in one week to have your sutures removed and so your 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
Get the alert, ageless look you want
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 like Dr. Mizuguchi will focus on creating a younger, natural-looking appearance that refreshes the face. You and our surgeon can decide how dramatic or how subtle you want the results to be. After brow lift surgery, you will look more awake, more alert, and more like the age you feel.
