Brow Lift in Miami, FL | Gables Plastic Surgery

Miami board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jorge de la Pedraja offers brow lift surgery in Miami to create a more youthful appearance for the upper third of your face. If you have droopy brows, hooded eyes, or deep-set forehead furrows, a brow lift can restore your smooth skin texture and an alert and radiant expression.  

The procedure elevates the eyebrows, correcting the appearance of hanging upper eyelid skin. It pairs well with other procedures, like eyelid surgery, a facelift, and facial fat grafting. In addition, Dr. de la Pedraja can employ non-surgical rejuvenation, like Botox injections, to complement your results.

What Is a Brow Lift?

Aging typically causes the brows to sag downward. As your skin loses elasticity, the distance between the eyebrows and eyelashes shortens. A permanently lowered eyebrow position can make you look tired, angry, or sad. Brow lift surgery restores an approachable appearance by raising your eyebrows. You may consider a brow lift if you have significant skin laxity and wrinkles that cause your upper eyelids to sag.

Also known as a forehead lift or rejuvenation, the brow lift is an aesthetic procedure to correct brow elevation. It improves your forehead appearance and the areas around your eyes by raising soft tissue and forehead skin.

Brow Lift Benefits

Consider what a brow lift can help you achieve.

  • Smooths forehead wrinkles and lines
  • Lifts brows and lids for a more alert refreshed appearance
  • Reduces upper eyelid sagging
  • Softens crow’s feet
  • Reduces a tired and angry appearance
  • The surgical plan is customized to your needs
  • Results are long-lasting

Are You a Brow Lift Candidate?

A brow lift is a brief, relatively straightforward anti-aging procedure. The incisions are tiny and easily hidden, and the recovery is brief compared to other cosmetic surgeries. As a result, many people who are in good overall health qualify as brow lift candidates for different reasons.

For some, their goals are purely aesthetic. For example, they want to improve their facial appearance. In contrast, others experience their line of sight obstructed as their eyebrows and eyelids begin to sag.

Cosmetic Concerns

If you want to address aesthetic flaws like forehead wrinkles and fine lines, this procedure is an ideal choice. For example, a brow lift can recontour your eyebrows, address skin laxity resulting from the aging process, and boost your self-confidence.

Functional Concerns

Sometimes the brows will droop severely enough to obstruct your vision. If you have heavy brows that push your upper eyelids into your line of sight, a brow lift can help.

If you are more concerned about the functional problems of a droopy brow than the cosmetic ones, you are still a good candidate for a brow lift. As a bonus, those who choose this procedure for functional issues will also enjoy its cosmetic benefits.

Your Brow Lift Surgery

On the day of your surgery, you will first meet with your anesthesiologist. Then, Dr. de la Pedraja will meet with you to discuss the procedure, make surgical markings, and take photos. Afterward, you will go to the operating room to receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Once you are resting under anesthesia, Dr. de la Pedraja will create tiny incisions on your scalp behind your hairline. While this procedure will not change your hairline shape, your forehead will have a smoother texture, and your eyebrows will have a higher position. Rest assured, your look will be natural once the surgery is over and the swelling subsides. 

You will spend about an hour in the recovery area before a responsible friend or family member can take you home.

You will visit Dr. de la Pedraja’s office for a follow-up appointment the next day. If the next day is Saturday, he will see you at your home.

What to Expect During Brow Lift Recovery

Once your surgery is over, you will go home to begin your recovery. We will provide you with a comprehensive list of directions to follow, so you know what to do and what to avoid when you arrive home. Expect to spend approximately one to two weeks recovering. Here are some tips to follow after your surgery:

  • Avoid washing your hair for a few days.
  • Keep your head at an elevated position at rest or while sleeping.
  • Stay out of direct sunlight.
  • Avoid strenuous activity in the first week of recovery.
