Rejuvenate your brow region with a Brow Lift

Some of the very first signs of aging manifest in the brow region. As eyebrows sag, they can encroach upon the eyes and give a sense of fullness and weightiness to the upper eyelids. Patients with sagging brows frequently express concerns about appearing older than their actual age. Additionally, they may convey an unintended impression of anger or fatigue.

Why Choose Dr. Weber for Facial Plastic Surgery?


What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift is a surgical solution that effectively addresses a sagging brow by elevating, reshaping, and repositioning the eyebrows. Dr. Stephen Weber, a double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, specializes in tailored brow lifts in Denver, CO, to help patients achieve their aesthetic aspirations.

Brow sagging is a natural consequence of the aging process. Factors such as stress, smoking, sun damage, and genetics can accelerate this process. Often, a brow lift stands as the only viable option to address brow drooping and revitalize the eye area. In instances of pronounced eye aging, patients may consider pairing their brow lift with upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for a comprehensive rejuvenation outcome.

Who is an ideal candidate for a brow lift?

Patients who are dissatisfied with the aesthetics of their forehead and upper eyelids can benefit from a brow lift in Lone Tree. Typically, suitable candidates are healthy, non-smoking adults without severe medical conditions, who maintain a positive outlook and have a good understanding of what the treatment entails. To confirm candidacy, patients are encouraged to schedule and attend an initial consultation with Dr. Weber.

What is Dr. Weber’s approach to a brow lift?

Dr. Weber conducts brow lifts as outpatient procedures at an ambulatory surgical center, employing general anesthesia for patient comfort. A board-certified anesthesiologist administers anesthesia, ensuring patients are pain-free and comfortable throughout. The procedure involves the following:

  • Strategically positioned incisions discreetly rest behind the hairline, eliminating visible scarring.
  • Delicate dissection of weakened muscles and loose skin from the forehead bone, enabling gentle brow elevation and secure fixation using absorbable anchors.
  • The procedure concludes with the closure of incisions using dissolvable sutures, meticulously executed to promote proper healing and minimal scarring. The entire process typically takes around 60 minutes.

Patient Review

What will my recovery be like?

Following their procedure, patients are transferred to the postoperative recovery area, where vigilant monitoring by an anesthesia specialist ensures the gradual fading of sedation or anesthesia effects. In cases of discomfort or pain, appropriate pain medications are administered. Once patients are fully awake, alert, and pain is effectively managed, they can be safely taken home by a family member or friend.

Dr. Weber always provides patients with comprehensive at-home recovery guidelines ahead of their procedure, strongly advising them to have a support person present during the initial 24 hours post-surgery. Subsequently, patients schedule their first postoperative visit within 24 hours of surgery, followed by a second appointment at the 5-day mark. Typically, patients receive clearance to resume work and regular activities after their five-day follow-up.

What are the different types of brow lifts?

The Endoscopic Brow Lift:

Utilizing an endoscope, a slender tube equipped with a camera, this minimally invasive technique boasts swift recovery times due to its inconspicuous, small incisions behind the hairline. It has rapidly gained popularity among cosmetic surgeons.

The Coronal Brow Lift:

This method involves the precise removal of scalp tissue, coupled with the elevation of the forehead and eyebrows. The incision, hidden behind the hairline, heals into a discreet scar.

The Tricophytic/Hairline Lift:

Typically favored by individuals with a higher hairline, this approach necessitates an incision at the hairline itself, ensuring that the hairline does not rise after the scalp skin is removed and the brows lifted. This results in a smoother forehead and elevated eyebrows.

Direct or Mid-Forehead Lift:

In the Direct Brow Lift, the incision is positioned just above the eyebrow, offering direct elevation of the lateral eyebrow. In contrast, the Mid-Forehead Lift entails incisions within forehead furrows (wrinkles) for an alternative approach. These approaches result in surprisingly little scarring and can be easily performed in the office setting without the need for an IV or general anesthesia. The direct browlift is particularly well suites for lifting of the lateral, or outer, portion of the brow.

What results can I expect from my brow lift?

The majority of patients experience a noticeable enhancement in their brow shape and position immediately after their brow lift in Denver. As the swelling that occurs post-surgery gradually diminishes, results will continue to improve. Typically, final results become visible within the first three months of recovery.

Final results include the following:

  • Achieving a lifted and youthful brow position
  • Diminishing the heaviness and hooding of the upper eyelids
  • Creating an alert, rested, and more open-eyed look

Results are exceptionally natural, subtle, and aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Weber's extensive training, expertise, and experience allow him to deliver patients a refined and graceful brow that embodies youth and beauty.

How much does a brow lift cost?

The starting price for a brow lift is $12,000. Factors such as case complexity and anticipated length of surgery can influence the final cost of a brow lift in Denver. Surgery cost includes the surgeon's fee, facility fee and anesthesia cost. The final cost will be discussed during your private consultation with Dr. Stephen Weber. This procedure is performed at a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) and your anesthesia will be provided by a board-certified MD Anesthesiologist. If necessary, our office can assist you in applying for financing.
