If you want to correct drooping, sagging, or furrowed eyebrows, you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. Through this procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto can help you achieve the smooth, youthful appearance you desire.

Generally, you may be an ideal candidate for endoscopic brow lift surgery if you have:

  • Minimal to advanced signs of aging
  • Droopy or sagging brows
  • An old or tired look
  • Heavy upper eyelids
  • Furrows between the brows
  • Horizontal lines across the forehead
  • Brows that obstruct your vision

There are also a few health factors to take into consideration to determine your brow lift candidacy. Before you undergo the surgery, you should be in good overall health and must be able to avoid smoking for a few weeks before and after the procedure. In addition, it is important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your surgery.

A brow lift may also be a good choice if you want more permanent, substantial improvements. While dermal fillers can provide an immediate result for forehead wrinkles and lines, the effects have a short duration. In comparison, the results of a brow lift are not only longer lasting, but also more rejuvenating.

To help speed up recovery, Dr. Kleto performs an endoscopic brow lift. Instead of making one large incision along the hairline, he makes very small incisions in the scalp. He then lifts the excess muscle and skin of your forehead to give your brows a natural, flattering look. Dr. Kleto then closes the incisions using temporary sutures, which can be removed after just one week. This technique, compared to more traditional facial plastic surgery, greatly reduces recovery time, complications, and scarring.
