What is a Brow Lift?

Brow lift surgery, also called forehead lift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that repositions the eyebrows in a more attractive and youthful position, drawing more attention to the eyes. This procedure moves the eyebrows and lifts them into a more youthful position, while producing a subtle and elegant arch in the eyebrows.

“The defining factor was that [Dr. Garcia] only did faces… to have that extra skill and expertise.” – Alice

What Are the Types of Brow Lift Surgeries?

1ENDOSCOPIC “SCARLESS” BROW LIFT

An endoscopic brow lift is the least invasive brow lift technique. It involves making several small incisions in the scalp, through which an endoscope (a thin, tube-like device with a light and camera) is inserted. The endoscope allows Dr. Garcia to view the underlying tissue and muscles, and to perform the lift using special instruments.

2TEMPORAL BROW LIFT

A temporal brow lift, also known as a lateral brow lift, is a technique that focuses on lifting the outer portion of the eyebrows. It involves making an incision in the temporal hairline (the hairline at the temples), and then repositioning or removing tissue to achieve the desired lift.

3CLASSIC BROW LIFT

A classic brow lift, also known as a coronal brow lift, is a technique that lifts the entire brow, including the central and outer portions. It involves making a long incision along the top of the scalp, from ear to ear, and then lifting the skin and underlying tissues to achieve the desired lift. The incision is typically hidden in the hairline, but may be noticeable in people with a very short haircut.

Frequently Asked Brow Lift Questions

 

  • How Much Does a Brow Lift Cost In Jacksonville?

    The average cost of a brow lift varies from one community to the other with some small variations. Factors such as the facility where the brow lift will be performed and the type of anesthesia used will influence the final cost of the surgery. Jacksonville brow lift surgery varies in price range according to these factors. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery makes facial surgery procedures available and affordable for everyone. Our office provides a wide array of payment options, including easy financing. We also accept cash, major credit cards and personal checks for brow lift surgery and other procedures.

  • When Is The Best Age For Brow Lift?

    The best age for a brow lift can vary depending on the individual and their specific needs and goals. Generally, it is recommended to wait until the signs of aging in the brow and forehead become more prominent and noticeable before considering a brow lift. This may be around the late 30s to 40s , but can vary depending on factors such as genetics and lifestyle habits. It’s also important to consider your overall health and wellness.

  • How Do I Prepare For My Brow Lift?

    We will provide all of your preoperative and postoperative instructions prior to your brow lift. We will ask you to stop certain vitamins, herbs and medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen, among others. Brow lift recovery is shortened if patients follow our very specific instructions.

  • Where Will My Brow Lift Be Performed?

    We perform our brow lift procedures in our state-accredited operating room under the anesthesia care of board-certified anesthesiologists.

  • What Can I Expect During Brow Lift Surgery?

    Brow lift surgery is usually performed under local twilight anesthesia. You will remember and feel nothing during your operation.

    There are several options regarding the location of the incisions during the forehead lift. Dr. Garcia offers the endoscopic brow lift to his patients that have mild to moderate descent of their brow position and a normal hairline position. The endoscopic brow lift is performed by making four small (one inch) incisions behind the hairline.

    Another popular and very effective brow lift technique offered to our patients allows the hairline to be advanced forward and raises the eyebrows at the same time. This more traditional forehead lift technique is performed in such a way as to actually allow the hair to grow through the incision so that ultimately it is barely perceptible.

  • What Is Recovery From a Brow Lift Like?

    You will be able to see results immediately after brow lift surgery. You will have swelling and bruising that will subside in roughly five days. On the seventh day after surgery, your sutures are removed, and two days later, you are allowed to apply makeup directly on any incision lines to cover bruising. Normal physical activity can resume after two weeks. Final results from a brow lift can take several weeks to several months to become apparent, as swelling and bruising subside and the tissues settle into their new position.
