BROW LIFT SURGERY
You’ve probably heard the expression, “The eyes say it all.” The eyes have the ability to convey a range of emotions, such as joy, sadness and suspicion. And sometimes, without even trying, we may project a certain feeling based on the appearance of our eyes. Puffiness, frown lines and drooping lids can convey a tired or stern look that doesn’t match your true feelings.
We can help you appear as vibrant on the outside as you feel on the inside.

The Brow Lift Procedure
Brow lift surgery usually takes about one to two hours to perform. Either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation is used. Depending on the surgical technique used, one long incision or a series of small incisions is made. Tissue and muscle underneath the skin are moved or repositioned as necessary. At the end of the procedure, the incision(s) is closed with sutures, screws, adhesives or surgical tape; a drain may be put in to collect excess blood and fluid. Postsurgery, the patient is moved to a recovery area for observation.
Brow Lift Surgery Candidates
In addition to improving your overall facial appearance, eyelid and brow surgery can specifically target the following concerns:
- Saggy, excess eyelid skin
- Crow’s feet
- Heavy, drooping brows
- Bags underneath the eyes
- Wrinkles of the forehead
Most of Dr. Reuben’s patients come to him seeking improvement in the entire eye area. No matter what your eye concerns, Dr. Reuben can help develop a surgical plan that will satisfy your needs. By taking an active approach in your plastic surgery journey, you and Dr. Reuben will partner to help your vision become a reality.
What to Expect After Your Brow Lift Surgery
After your surgery, you will be asked to keep your head elevated for a few days. In about a week, your sutures can be removed, and you can return to most of your normal activities. Depending on which procedure or procedures Dr. Reuben performs, recovery time may vary.
Results of a Brow Lift
Depending on your presurgical appearance and goals, a brow lift's results, which can be seen immediately, can be either subtle or dramatic. Eyes will appear more "open," and creases across the forehead, bridge of the nose, and between the eyes will be much less prominent.
