Lift and brighten with a brow lift

Our brow lift in New Orleans can have a transformative effect on the way others perceive your mood. With heavy brows, one can look angry, standoffish, or fatigued. Non-surgical techniques like thread lifts and Botox can be very effective, but eventually as one ages and skin laxity increases, these treatments stop yielding results.

When patients reach this point a surgical procedure called a brow lift, which elevates the eyebrows and removes excess skin, is the most complete correction possible. Brow lifts done by an experienced facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Miller always result in a natural look. Sometimes a brow lift is performed in conjunction with a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid lift. There are many different types of brow lifts, each with its own particular benefits.

Types of Brow Lifts

The mid-forehead brow lift 

The mid-forehead brow lift is a softer version of the coronal brow lift and also used to correct heavy brows. The incision is made in existing creases of the forehead. From there, the eyebrows are carefully repositioned and excess skin is removed.

The coronal brow lift 

In a coronal brow lift, an incision is made several inches behind the hairline and is typically longer than incisions in other types of brow lifts. The coronal brow lift is utilized to reposition the eyebrows for a revitalized, attentive look. A coronal brow lift is an extensive correction used primarily for patients with very heavy brows.

The pretrichial brow lift

Pretrichial brow lift, or subcutaneous brow lift, involves making an incision in front of the hairline along the forehead to lift the brows into a more desirable position. Since the incision for this type of brow lift is closer to the brow area than other techniques, it can provide an optimal lift while rejuvenating the eye area. The pretrichial brow lift is ideal for patients with large foreheads or high hairlines.

The endoscopic brow lift 

This type of brow lift is minimally invasive and performed with an endoscope, a small tube with a light and a camera attached. Small incisions are made on the scalp instead of near the hairline. The endoscope is inserted through the incisions, and the surgeon uses a monitor to see the area and delicately reposition the brow muscles. This procedure results in minimal scarring and reduces the risk of nerve damage that comes with a traditional brow lift. Recovery time is about a week, which is shorter than the typical brow lift.

The lateral brow lift 

A lateral brow lift, sometimes called a temporal or mini brow lift, addresses the drooping outer corners of the brow. Incisions are minimal and the procedure can be done using only local anesthesia. This lift does not affect the center of the forehead or entire brow, just the outer arches of the brow. Because of this, there is no risk of a "surprised look". This procedure is also suitable for those who would like a classic arched brow, regardless of age. The lateral brow lift corrects crow's feet, reduces wrinkling in the brow and forehead, and has a subtle lifting effect on the cheeks.

What is the Recovery from a brow lift?

After a brow lift, swelling and bruising are normal and should subside within one to two weeks. Most patients can return to desk work and light socializing within ten to fourteen days. Dr. Miller makes a customized recommendation plan for each patient and schedules follow-up visits so he can monitor the healing process.

What results can you expect after a brow lift?

When patients undergo our procedure for a brow lift in New Orleans, they no longer need to worry about Botox or other non-invasive techniques to keep their faces looking bright and refreshed. Brows will be elevated, which makes the face look younger and more aesthetically pleasing. With the brow lifts that rely on incisions near or behind the hairline, visible scarring is a non-issue.

Patients see their final results in 6-8 weeks. A brow lift yields long-term results, but to maintain its effects for as long as possible, patients should exercise regularly, eat well, practice stress reduction techniques, get good sleep consistently, and keep their skin protected from the sun.

Brow lift surgery for men

Dr. Miller has dedicated much of his practice to male facial rejuvenation. Men's facial cosmetic needs are quite different from those of women and require a specific skill set. For example, men's eyebrows are naturally positioned lower on the face, so when Dr. Miller performs a brow lift on a male patient, he calibrates the lift to make it less pronounced than it would be for a female patient. This ensures that his male patients look rejuvenated but maintain a natural and masculine look.
