What Do Brow Lifts Address?

Sagging, drooping, or heavy eyebrows can give you a permanent frown, making you look older, angrier, and generally less approachable. Dr. Boustany performs a highly personalized brow lift surgery in Boston, MA, to restore your brows to their youthful positions, helping you look and feel younger and more confident.

What are the available brow lift techniques?

Everyone is unique, and age affects different people differently. As such, your brow lift journey starts with a personalized consultation with Dr. Boustany to identify the ideal surgical technique based on your brow’s position and condition. Endoscopic brow lift and temporal brow lift are minimally invasive techniques that involve tiny incisions within the hairline and a minimal recovery period. Pretrichial “hairline” brow lift and coronal brow lift involve bigger incisions and more downtime.

In some cases, you may also need additional procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a facelift, to address your specific concerns. This is especially true if you have a high quantity of excess skin. Dr. Boustany will only provide recommendations according to your specific goals and concerns and never offer procedures you don’t need or want. Regardless of the techniques and procedures used, Dr. Boustany ensures you have a safe, comfortable recovery and achieve optimal results.

Am I a suitable candidate for a brow lift?

As you grow older, numerous changes in your body, such as the loss of collagen and elastin, push the eyebrows below the bone brow ridge. Collagen and elastin make your skin look firm, taut, and youthful, and as your body’s collagen reserves are depleted, your brows start drooping down. This makes it seem like you’re constantly frowning. Elevating the brow’s position restores your facial youthfulness, making you seem happier and younger.

You’re the ideal candidate for a brow lift if you have sagging or creased eyebrows and visible forehead lines, frown lines, and wrinkles. Perhaps you look upset, grumpy, or even angry even when your face is at rest. In these situations, a personalized brow lift can restore your youthful facial appearance, making you look and feel confident. Dr. Boustany conducts a thorough consultation and reviews your medical history to ensure you’re the ideal candidate.

What happens after the brow lift?

Dr. Boustany will prescribe medications and provide a clear set of instructions that you must follow accurately. These medications will help you prevent infections, manage post-treatment pain and discomfort, and speed up the recovery process. A temporal or endoscopic brow lift involves minimal downtime, and most patients can resume all of their activities within 10 days. The final results are generally visible within 4 to 6 weeks.

However, you should expect mild swelling and bruising immediately after the brow lift surgery for a few days. You must keep your head in an elevated position for a few days, even when you’re sleeping, and avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications, such as Aspirin. You must also avoid strenuous physical workouts and heavy lifting for a few weeks, though you’re advised to start walking soon after the procedure to encourage blood circulation.

Why choose Dr. Boustany for your brow lift?

Dr. Boustany is the ideal facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon for your customized brow lift because she understands that no two individuals are the same. As such, she performs thorough consultations to examine your eyebrows, discuss your expectations, and curate a personalized treatment plan based on your anatomy. As a Harvard fellowship-trained surgeon, you can trust that she’ll use the latest and safest techniques possible to ensure naturalized, optimal results.
