About 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.
The best candidates for brow lift surgery:
- Have excess skin, creating folds and creases
- Have droopy eyelids and eyebrows
- Have dynamic wrinkles on their brow
- Want a long-lasting solution
- Do not need a full facelift

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
"OMG... I never thought I would be someone who needed this procedure. - After my 3rd and 4th babies were delivered I realized my body would never be the same. I had twins. It was rough on my body. Over the last 18 years, I tried everything to gain core strength. Nothing worked and now I realize why. I had a very large open area in my upper abd. Muscles. I remember taking up pilates and yoga thinking it would help. Both made it even worse. I also did triathlons . I understand the reason I was unable to run after I swam and biked.I understand my body mechanics better. Wow, I wish I had done this years ago. I really did not want to resort to surgery. If others go through the same as me I hope they find a good surgeon . Some of my friends understand what I have been through and some think I I did it for looks. Looking good is a benefit from this surgery. But my core strength was more important.I had started having back injuries that kept getting worse. The more I hurt my back the less I could do physically. It was getting harder to go for walks. Thank you to the staff and doctor for encouraging me to go forward with this procedure. I hope other women who have the same issues seek good surgeons. Having babies is hard on our bodies . I had twins and it was even harder. Pros I finally have answers to my abd. Issues. Cons it is still a surgery."- S. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2019
"I can’t say enough about Dr. Mizuguchi and everyone in his office. They are friendly and helpful and guide you through your surgery from start to finish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my breast reduction and lift. He did an amazing job and my only regret is that I didn’t do the surgery 10 years ago. He is professional and genuinely a great person, taking the time to put his patient at ease. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi if you are considering having anything done for yourself. My results are wonderful!!"- K.F. / Healthgrades / Dec 09, 2019
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 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.
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
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 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.
