The eyes are one of the most important features a person has; and often, they are the first thing noticed during interactions. It is no wonder why the eyebrow lift procedure, also called a brow lift, performed in Tampa at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery is important to so many patients. As we age, gravity and muscle action depress the eyebrows. Lowering of the brows causes hooding of the upper eyelids and can lead to a chronic frown, scowling, or unhappy look. For many patients, this look does not represent how they really feel, so a brow lift provides a solution to the problem.

Brow Lift Benefits
An eyebrow lift serves to relieve the aging features of the upper face. Patients will see benefits in the form of a reduction in frown lines, smoothing deep furrows of the forehead, lifting of drooping eyebrows and opening of the eye area. As with our facelift, this procedure can have a positive, long-lasting effect on your appearance and confidence.
Brow Lift Procedure
As with all of our procedures, including facelift, neck lift, and injectable fillers, the brow lift is performed with the utmost care to ensure that the results look natural. It is important to our plastic surgery experts that the patient looks his or her best and that the overall change in appearance meets the desired results, but also looks healthy, youthful and natural. All brow lifts are performed in our state-of-the-art facility.
Although endoscopic approaches for brow lifts are commonplace, Dr. Dominic prefers the more traditional, open approach performed through a scalp incision. The scalp incision approach is Dr. Dominic’s preference for simple techniques that lead to an easy recovery and maximal results for the patient.
This procedure begins with an incision made in the scalp, over the forehead and then the skin is lifted. The frown muscles are partially removed, which eliminates the downward pull on the brows. Fibrous attachments of the brow are released so the brows can be lifted and repositioned. Finally, the excess skin is removed and the incision is closed.
Our brow lift can be combined with the following facial procedures:
Recovery from a brow lift will depend on if you combine the procedure with other facial rejuvenation surgeries like eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Typically, our brow lift patients can return to their normal, everyday activities within two to seven days after surgery. Patients may experience slight bruising and swelling; however, this will subside over the following weeks.
At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery Rejuvenation Institute, we strive to provide you with a simple, yet fulfilling experience. To learn more about an eyebrow lift in Tampa, please request a complimentary consultation online, or call our office at 813-975-3223.
