Awaken an Aging Brow Line
As we age, the distance between our eyelashes and brows begins to shorten, and our eyebrows shift downward. Our foreheads sag, and wrinkles and frown lines form, causing us to appear older, tired, or even angry. If you’re looking for facial rejuvenation to address wrinkles, droopy eyes, and an older, tired appearance, a brow lift could help.
A brow lift raises the eyebrows for a more youthful, alert, and friendly appearance. Stephan Baker is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. He is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience and has provided countless patients with excellent facial plastic surgery. Dr. Baker is proud to offer brow lift surgery in Miami to men and women who have developed signs of aging in this crucial area.
Elevate Your Entire Appearance
When it comes to aesthetics, the forehead and eyes are one of the most critical areas of the face. A brow lift procedure improves the appearance of the entire area and helps patients feel more confident.
“I do every procedure three times. I do it all in my head in advance. I do the actual surgery. I review it all from start to finish to look for ways to improve. This way, each procedure I do is my best work.”
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a popular plastic surgery that is performed to lift sagging eyebrows and treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead. A brow lift revives aging skin and transforms sagging brows.
Dr. Baker has extensive surgical experience addressing the muscular structure of the face and can produce natural-looking rejuvenation, allowing our brow lift patients to enjoy their long-lasting results.
Good candidates for a brow lift procedure with Dr. Stephan Baker include men and women in generally good health who do not smoke, have healthy skin, and maintain realistic expectations. Patients with sagging brows and forehead creases will get the most benefit from this surgical procedure. Dr. Baker evaluates each patient’s candidacy during an in-person consultation.
Learn About Your Options
During your brow lift consultation with Dr. Stephan Baker, he will review your health history, discuss your cosmetic goals, and examine your skin and facial structure. Dr. Baker will show you before-and-after photos of brow lifts, facelifts, and other cosmetic procedures and will provide you with a personalized treatment plan. This is an ideal opportunity to ask any questions and get to know Dr. Baker and his staff before scheduling your procedure.
Good Preparation Supports Beautiful Results
Dr. Baker will provide you with pre-operative instructions, which may include lab testing and a medical examination from your general practitioner. You should quit smoking at least three months before surgery and stop taking aspirin and medication that thins your blood three weeks before your surgery. This will help improve circulation, encourage healing, and reduce potential bruising or bleeding issues. Be sure to drink plenty of water for hydration the week before your surgery. We recommend that you invite a family member or friend to assist you during your initial recovery. You will also need to have someone drive you home after the procedure.
Dr. Baker is a highly-skilled plastic surgeon who creates personalized surgical plans based on the patient’s individual needs and goals. This same-day surgery is completed using general and local anesthesia in a hospital-accredited outpatient surgery center.
Dr. Baker uses a lateral brow lift to improve eyebrows that droop on the outer side of the brow and lateral hooding on the sides of the upper eyelid. This technique targets specific needs and goals and does not alter the rest of the eyebrows or forehead. The lateral technique is commonly performed with a facelift or as an adjunctive surgical procedure to refresh the outer area of the eye. This is the most commonly performed brow lift today, as most patients only have sagginess in their outer (lateral) brow areas.
Our expert staff will provide detailed care instructions to prevent infection, maximize comfort, and ensure that you achieve the best results. Dr. Baker will examine the surgical site in his office every few days for the first two weeks to ensure that you are healing well. We recommend Tylenol or prescription pain medication to relieve any discomfort. Use cold compresses to minimize swelling, elevate your head while sleeping, avoid strenuous exercise during your recovery for the first three to four weeks, and avoid direct sun exposure.
Brow lift surgery offers long-lasting results, but it will not stop the aging process. Everyone ages at a different rate depending on genetics, skin type, and health habits, including diet and exercise. Dr. Baker may recommend non-surgical rejuvenation treatments to help you maintain or enhance your forehead lift results. For example, regular Botox treatments will help keep new wrinkles to a minimum and maintain brow position.
The brow lift only addresses the forehead and upper area of the face and is often combined with an eyelid lift or facelift for overall facial rejuvenation. Dr. Baker will ask about your long-term goals during your consultation and may recommend combining another treatment with the brow lift.
Dr. Baker will discuss brow lift risks during your consultation. Possible risks may include bruising and swelling, incision bleeding, anesthesia complications, infection, and the need for revision surgery. Patients can significantly reduce operational risks by choosing an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Baker.
Dr. Baker uses the smallest incisions possible to reduce noticeable scars and will review the incision placement with you during your consultation. It is essential that you avoid the bright Florida sunshine during your recovery and follow all of Dr. Baker’s care instructions to reduce the risk of scarring and infection and to ensure proper healing. The incisions should fade significantly over time.
Your brow lift will address noticeably sagging brows and the wrinkles caused by drooping brows. Botox and dermal fillers are recommended to treat crow’s feet and frown lines not caused by drooping brows. Dr. Baker will discuss these options with you during your consultation.
Non-invasive alternatives like Botox and fillers are used to affect the muscles in the brow and may achieve some results. Dr. Baker will discuss non-surgical options with you during your consultation.
You will see immediate results but will experience the full effects in approximately three months when all the swelling has disappeared. You will see reduced signs of aging, lifted brows, and a friendly, alert expression. Dr. Baker will discuss the personalized results that you can expect during your consultation.
