Brow Lift

Over time, gravity and collagen loss can lead to changes in the upper face that you may not appreciate. The forehead and brow area can start to droop, making you look persistently angry, worried or tired. Furrows can also appear that further exacerbate the worn appearance. In some cases, the drooping brow can alter your line of vision as your eyelids begin to sag over the eye.

A brow lift reverses many of these aging signs, restoring a smoother, more youthful profile to the upper face. Dr. Saad offers both endoscopic and open brow lifts to accommodate the precise needs of all of his patients. With extensive experience in these procedures, Dr. Saad is more than qualified to provide you with natural, beautiful results that will last for many years.

Are You a Candidate?

Brow lift candidates should be non-smokers in good health. Dr. Saad will evaluate your current health status, as well as your medical history, to determine whether this procedure is safe for you. A brow lift may be recommended to you if you have any of the following aging issues:

  • A sagging brow causing hooding of the upper eyelids
  • Drooping eyebrows that cause you to look persistently tired, angry or worried
  • Loose skin or small fat deposits along the upper eyelids
  • Horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows, known as frown lines

Dr. Saad achieves excellent results when performing a brow lift alone. However, he sometimes recommends combining this procedure with others (like a facelift or eyelid surgery) to further enhance your outcome.

Before Your Brow Lift

Before you schedule your brow lift, you will meet with Dr. Saad to discuss your concerns and what you hope your final results will show. Dr. Saad will collect information from you to ensure that surgery is a safe option for you, and to determine whether a brow lift is your best choice for meeting your aesthetic goals. This is an opportune time to ask questions and get all the facts necessary to prepare for your surgery, if that is the path you choose. The primary goal of this initial consultation is to decide if a brow lift is the right option for you and to help you feel comfortable and confident about your upcoming surgery.

Brow Lift Options

Dr. Saad offers two different types of brow lifts for his patients:

Endoscopic Brow Lift

The endoscopic brow lift is a less invasive procedure that Dr. Saad often recommends to patients in need of less correction. He is considered an expert in the endoscopic brow lift technique, particularly after publishing a chapter on endoscopic brow lifting for Aesthetic Rejuvenation of the Face and Neck, a book detailing the latest surgical and non-surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, featuring the expertise of world-renowned plastic surgeons. The surgery involves a special camera known as an endoscope, which is placed into the surgical area via a very slight incision. Dr. Saad observes the procedure through the endoscope and uses tools to make the necessary adjustments to the underlying tissue and muscle with less trauma to surrounding skin and tissue. He will place small incisions inside the hairline to eliminate visible scarring after the procedure, and carefully reposition tissue and muscle while removing excess skin to create a natural result. Patients enjoy a quicker, more comfortable recovery when this technique is used.

Open Brow Lift

Also known as the coronal brow lift, the open brow lift may be used to reverse more severe signs of aging on the upper face. Dr. Saad performs this technique using an incision that stretches across the scalp from ear to ear. He will place the incision within the hairline so visible scarring will not be evident after this procedure. Through the longer incision, he can remove more loose skin and isolated fat deposits, while repositioning underlying tissue and muscle to achieve a natural contour.

About Your Surgery

An endoscopic brow lift is usually performed using local anesthesia and sedation, while Dr. Saad prefers using general anesthesia for the majority of his open brow lifts. The surgery takes about two hours when the brow lift is performed alone – longer if additional procedures will be done at the same time. You will remain in a recovery area for a few hours after your surgery to ensure you come out of the anesthesia safely. In most cases, you will go home the same day to rest and recuperate in comfortable surroundings.

The Recovery Process

Recovery from a brow lift will depend on the type of technique used for your procedure. Patients that undergo endoscopic brow lifts generally have little discomfort and are back to work within a few days. An open brow lift usually requires a longer recovery, but patients typically can go back to work within one week. Bruising and swelling may persist for a couple of weeks, and once they subside, the full results of your procedure will become evident. Brow lifts offer long-lasting results, with most patients going a number of years before needing any sort of touch-up procedure.

A brow lift is a perfect way to refresh the upper portion of the face, creating a smoother, more youthful profile. To find out if a brow lift is the right choice for you, contact Dr. Saad’s office today.
