Questions for Your Brow Lift Consultation


During your consultation, Dr. Garcia will help evaluate if you’re a good candidate for a brow lift. For starters, the fact that you’re considering brow lift surgery is a good indicator that you understand the benefits of treatment. If you are seeking to correct sagging eyebrows, wrinkles or lines on the forehead, or a generally aged appearance around the eyes, a brow lift is the correct procedure to consider. Generally, as long as you’re in good physical health, and are experiencing prominent signs of aging that cannot be addressed with other cosmetic techniques, you are a suitable candidate for a brow lift.


Dr. Garcia will illustrate your potential results during your brow lift consultation. After discussing your treatment goals and identifying the appropriate surgical techniques, you and Dr. Garcia can explore potential outcomes through before and after photos of previous patients. However, it’s important to keep in mind that it can take several weeks to a few months for the final results of your brow lift to become visible. This is due to the lengthy recovery process that follows a brow lift, which can include residual swelling before the tissues settle into their new position.

The surgical techniques used for your brow lift will vary slightly depending on your treatment goals and the extent of surgery necessary to produce your desired results. The preferred technique is the endoscopic brow lift, often called a “scarless” brow lift, because the incisions made are small and hidden in the hairline. However, patients who require more extensive correction in the brow and forehead area may benefit from temporal brow lift or traditional brow lift techniques. These involve longer incisions along the hairline to give Dr. Garcia greater access to the underlying facial tissue. For all treatments, the goal is to lift and trim the tissue in the brows and forehead to lift the eyebrows to a more youthful position. Brow lifts are typically performed with twilight anesthesia and take 1-2 hours to complete.


Surgeon experience is one of the utmost qualities to consider when seeking a brow lift surgeon. Your surgeon is directly responsible for your results, so it’s essential to pursue surgery with an experienced brow lift surgeon. Dr. Garcia is a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, demonstrating expertise in all qualities of brow lift surgery. With over 15 years as North Florida’s premier facial plastic surgeon, he has performed hundreds of brow lift procedures and is passionate about furthering education in the brow lift community.
