Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, understands that the forehead and eyebrow region often shows noticeable signs of early aging. Loosening of the forehead skin and muscles can cause deepening forehead wrinkles, drooping eyebrows, and even worsened eyelid hooding. An well-performed forehead lift, browplasty, or brow lift can address these issues to create a natural and youthful appearance.
During a brow lift, the forehead skin is lifted and tightened.This process repositions and raises theeyebrows to softenfrown lines for asmoother appearance. It alsosignificantly diminishes the horizontal lines and furrows that can make patients appear angry, sad, tired, or aged.The result isa more youthful,awake, and refreshed profile.A brow lift may be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift, or eyelid surgery. Brow lift surgery is individualized for each patient and Dr. Stile will recommend a specific technique that meets your needs for optimal results.
The best candidates for brow lift surgery:
Most brow lift surgeries are performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited hospital or surgical center. For brow surgery, small incisions are placed in low visibility areas, such as behind the hairline or in the eyebrows. The most common brow lift techniques are the open brow lift, limited incision brow lift, and endoscopic brow lift, which will be chosen based on the patient's goals and their individual features. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will remove any excess skin, then smooth and re-position the muscles and soft tissue to smooth wrinkles and lines while elevating the eyebrows to an appropriate level.
Brow lift surgery usually takes about 2 hours and once the patient has been cleared by the doctor, they may be taken home by a responsible adult to recover at home. Most patients take 1–3 weeks to recover after a brow lift, but they are generally able to drive and return to work in 2 weeks. For the first days after the surgery, patients should expect some temporary bruising, discomfort, tightness, and numbness. The doctor will talk to each patient about what they need to do during their recovery and provide tips for an easier recovery. Patients will need to return for a follow-up appointment in 1 week to have their sutures removed and so their healing progress can be checked. While visible improvements can be seen immediately, the final results of the brow lift are usually seen about 4–6 months after the surgery.
"I couldn't be more pleased with my results and Dr Stile. After two kids I decided to have a breast augmentation and I am so glad I went to Dr Stile. He was very professional and told me exactly what to expect and made me feel at ease (I was very nervous of getting the procedure done) , his nurse Natalie was awesome and the rest of his staff was very pleasant. He actually exceeded my expectations!"
"Dr. Stile is amazing. From the moment I met him I knew he would be my surgeon of choice. He took the time to listen and to explain the surgery in detail. The day of surgery he came and talked to me and gave me a big hug and said let's do this!! I felt so at ease I never had any 2nd thoughts. My follow up care has been amazing as well. Thanks Dr. Stile :)"
"Review on behalf of a patient who got Radiesse injections by Rakhi. The results for the jaw, under eye, and lips couldn't be more stunning! She was initially nervous about the swelling, but after a week, the results showed themselves to be beautiful. She is normally hesitant regarding injections as no one seems to satisfy what she's looking for. It's safe to say she will see Rakhi for any future treatments. She gives Rakhi her highest praise and recommends her to anyone looking for natural and stunning results."
"Amazing Surgeon!!! Dr. Stile is a perfectionist and really understands what it takes to make a woman feel beautiful. He's honest and is realistic about what you should expect from results. He had to correct some previous work done by another surgeon and I have never been happier! His staff is super friendly and professional. I have recommended him to several friends. I will only ever see him for any further needs."
"I'm am very pleased with my experience with Dr Stile and his team! I had a tummy tuck, liposuction on my flanks and neck. I'm a plus size girl that had 2 pregnancies and Dr explained what happens to your abdominal after having children, something I never really realized. It was important that he educated me about this process. I felt at ease and after doing my research on his work I knew he was the right plastic surgeon for me."
"The day of the surgery the 2 nurses that I took amazing care of me was Kelly and Shannon. And from my pre-op and post-op was nurse Yesenia! She helped answer a lot of my questions, and made feel comfortable through every step My results after my healing process was better than I expected! I did have minor pain after the 1st , 3 days but overall it was I wasn't in much pain. Anyway overall I'm very pleased with my results, and he made me feel " my beautiful " again for me! Thank you again Dr Stile for your professional and perfection!"
Many patients fear that a brow lift will leave them looking permanently surprised, unnaturally wide eyed, or like they have obviously had plastic surgery. A plastic surgeon with experience in brow lift surgery will focus on creating a younger, natural-looking appearance that refreshes the face. Using simulation software, the surgeon and patient can decide how dramatic or how subtle they want the results to be. After brow lift surgery, patients will look more awake, more alert, and more like the age they feel.
