  • Who is a Good Candidate for Brow Lift?

  • You notice sagging or dropping of your brow line.
  • You have a significant number of wrinkles located around your brow.
  • The wrinkles located around your brow are especially severe or deep.
  • It’s difficult to emote due to sagging brow or excess skin along the brow.
  • You notice a significant amount of excess skin on your brow.
  • You are healthy enough for surgery.
  • You have realistic expectations about what a brow lift procedure can accomplish.
  • Is a Brow Lift Right For Me?

Brow lifts are sometimes performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelift or blepharoplasty, depending on your desires and treatable areas.

If you think you might be a good candidate for a brow lift, or if you have questions about how a brow lift could help you look more youthful, contact our offices to set up a consultation with Dr. Ogilvie.

  • The Brow Lift Procedure

As the brows become heavier with aging, they often drop to or below the upper rim of the eye, causing a tired or angry appearance. To reposition the brow, there are five possible primary techniques used at OPS:

  • First is the least invasive eyelid incision
  • Second is slightly more invasive temporal incision
  • Third is the direct brow incision
  • Fourth is the hairline incision
  • Fifth and lastly is the most invasive: the traditional or posterior-hairline incision.

At OPS, we tailor the procedure to the specific needs of the patient to give the most effective but natural appearing results.

  • What Should You Expect?

Anesthesia – The brow lift can be performed with either oral, IV, or general anesthesia to keep you the most comfortable during the procedure. In cases when local anesthesia is appropriate, a sedative may sometimes be used as well.

Incision – As stated earlier, five possible incisions may be used, the eyelid or brow incision, the temporal incision, the direct brow incision, the anterior hairline incision or the traditional posterior hairline incision.

Closure – All incisions are typically closed with sutures or surgical clips which are typically removed after one week of recovery.

Results – visible results are evident once residual bruising and swelling subside, which may take up to 6-8 weeks. Healing is very dependent on the type or combination of procedures performed as well as your personal ability to heal.
