  • Softens wrinkles on the forehead and diminishes frown lines

  • Improves the symmetry of the eyes and eyebrow arches
  • Restores a lively, youthful look to the eyes while making them appear bigger
  • Provides results that are long-lasting

How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate?

If you are noticing signs of aging on your forehead and skin laxity around the eyebrows and upper eyelids, then a brow or forehead lift with Dr. Cox may be the optimal solution to restore the youthfulness to your face that you still feel within your spirit.

For the best healing outcome, it is advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regard to diet and exercise, as the ideal candidate for surgery is someone in good health who does not smoke.

What Happens During the Procedure?

Each brow lift procedure differs based on the techniques utilized and your individualized treatment plan. There are several processes for eyebrow lifting that involve incisions along the brow line or at different places around the hairline. You and Dr. Cox will choose a method that fulfills your aesthetic goals based on the contour and placement of your eyebrows and hairline pre-surgery as well as your overall facial structure.

The procedure is usually completed within 1-2 hours unless combined with other treatments or surgeries. Using targeted incisions, Dr. Cox will tighten or remove skin until the brow is in the ideal position. Because there are many ways to lift the brow, Dr. Cox will choose a process that will provide the most natural aesthetic for the patient’s anatomy, facial structure, and goals.

What Is the Recovery Process?

Recovery from a brow lift in Boulder varies depending on the exact procedure performed but tends to be mild with minimal discomfort.

  • The initial healing period will require 1-2 weeks of downtime to rest
  • Suture removal will occur within 6-14 days
  • Showering will be possible after 1-2 days using baby shampoo and gentle, thorough drying of the hair, scalp, and face to prevent infection
  • Ice packs can be applied to help minimize swelling and bruising
  • Patients should consider sleeping in an elevated position to reduce swelling
  • Most initial bruising and swelling will subside after 7-10 days and the residual will gradually decrease over weeks
  • Patients should avoid any strenuous lifting or exercise, including intercourse, for the first two weeks. (Light walking will aid circulation and help with the healing process, however.)

How long will the results last?

An eyebrow lift has long-lasting results that will keep you looking youthful for many years. Although it does not halt the aging process and patients may still see fine lines appear over the years, most are happy with the results and do not feel the need to undergo a second procedure. The most important factor in maintaining your results is following a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet, exercise, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding smoking.

Will the surgery leave a scar?

Anytime a skin incision is made, there will be a scar. Typically, scarring is minimal, although it may vary depending on the techniques used and the individual’s health and adherence to the recovery plan. Incisions are strategically placed within the forehead or hairline to hide any visible scarring. In cases where there may be scarring, it usually fades within 3-12 months after surgery.

How soon will I see the results?

Once the swelling and bruising subside, you will notice the results right away. Swelling can take several weeks to completely disappear, and then you will be delighted by the youthful, refreshed appearance of your forehead and brows for years to come.

Can I combine Blepharoplasty with a Brow Lift?

Yes, it is possible to combine a brow lift with a blepharoplasty , which can result in a more harmonious and youthful appearance by addressing both the upper face and eyelid areas. Combining these procedures is often chosen to achieve a balanced and rejuvenated overall look.
