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.

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.

About Us

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.

How much does a brow lift cost?

When it comes to plastic surgery, it's more important to work with an experienced surgeon than the cheapest one. Your costs for brow lift surgery will vary based on the technique chosen, anesthesia, facility fees, and other factors. When your treatment plan has been created during your consultation, cost estimates can be discussed. Our team is happy to tell you about payment methods and where to find low-interest financing so your surgery is easier to afford.

Do I need a brow lift or facelift?

Whether you should get a brow lift or a full facelift will depend on your goals and where you have excess skin. Many patients who come in wanting a full facelift may find they only need a brow lift and vice versa. During your consultation, our team will listen to your concerns and goals to help you decide which treatment is right for you.

What about nonsurgical treatments?

There are many nonsurgical treatments, such as laser skin tightening and injectables (like BOTOX and Juvéderm), that can deliver mild improvements. However, a surgical brow lift is better for significant improvements and longer-lasting results. In your consultation, we can go over both your nonsurgical and surgical choices so you can decide which is better for you.

What brow lift approach should I choose?

We will go over brow lift surgery techniques in your consultation so you understand the benefits of each before helping you choose the technique that best meets your needs and goals. A few of the factors that may influence your procedure are your hairline (factoring in both your current hairline and your risk of developing a receding hairline), the degree of skin sagging, and how much time you can devote to recovery.

Will my results look natural?

At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, we strive to deliver results that look natural and subtle. Our team will create a treatment plan to fit your needs and goals so you appear refreshed and younger without looking like you've had surgery. Our primary goal during brow lift surgery is to remove excess skin. The remaining skin and tissue will be smoothed to create an even, natural look.
