Why consider a browlift with Dr. Weber in Denver?

A browlift is a surgical procedure that remedies a drooping brow by lifting, shaping, and repositioning the eyebrows. Dr. Stephen Weber is a double board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in Denver, CO who performs customized browlifts to help patients meet their aesthetic goals.

A drooping brow occurs as part of the normal aging process. Factors like stress, smoking, and genetics can cause brow drooping to occur earlier than patients would like. In many cases, a browlift is the only way to correct a drooping brow and rejuvenate the eye area. Patients who have severe aging of the eyes may need to combine a browlift with a blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) for a complete rejuvenation effect.

Review - Browlift

What is Dr. Weber’s approach to a browlift?

Dr. Weber performs browlifts as outpatient procedures in an ambulatory surgical center. General anesthesia may be used to perform the procedure.

A board-certified anesthesiologist administers IV sedation or general anesthesia medications and monitors the patient throughout the procedure to make sure they are comfortable or completely asleep and feel no pain. The steps used to perform the procedure are as follows:

  • Incisions are carefully and strategically placed behind the hairline to prevent the appearance of a noticeable scar from forming after surgery.
  • Weak muscle and loose skin are carefully separated from the forehead bone. The brow is gently lifted and secured to the forehead using absorbable fixation anchors.
  • Incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures. Dr. Weber carefully closes incisions so they heal properly and do not form a noticeable scar. Total procedure time is approximately 60 minutes.

What will my recovery be like?

Patients are brought to the postoperative recovery room after their procedure. They are monitored by an anesthesia doctor or nurse while the effects of sedation or anesthesia medications wear off. Pain medications are given if patients feel any discomfort or pain. After patients are completely awake and alert and their pain is managed, they may be driven home by a family member or friend.

Dr. Weber gives all his patients at-home recovery instructions before their procedure. He advises patients to have someone stay with them for the first 24 hours after surgery. Patients return for their first postoperative appointment 24 hours following surgery and again 5 days after their procedure. Patients are usually cleared to return to work and normal activities after their five-day follow-up appointment.

Browlift FAQs

Are different approaches used to perform a browlift?

An important part of a browlift procedure is the approach. Dr. Weber uses multiple, highly effective approaches to provide his patients with excellent results. The following approaches may be used:

  • Endoscopic approach
  • Tricophytic/Hairline approach
  • Coronal approach
  • Direct or mid-forehead approach

The ideal approach depends upon the severity of brow drooping and eyelid aging and the position of the hairline. During initial consultations, Dr. Weber explains to patients which approach will be best for their specific situation. In most cases an endoscopic approach will be appropriate. However, in more complex or severe cases a coronal approach or hairline browlift might be ideal in order to address severe aging or a high hairline combined with heavy eyebrows.

Are there risks associated with a browlift?

There are risks associated with all surgical procedures. The risks associated with a browlift will be carefully explained to patients at their initial consultation. Because Dr. Weber takes any and all measures necessary to reduce risks, the overwhelming majority of patients find that potential risks do not play a factor in their treatment decision.

Can men have a browlift?

Men who have a drooping brow are great candidates for a browlift. Lifting the brow removes wrinkles and restores a more youthful look. Men who undergo a browlift look younger and more relaxed after their procedure.

Can I have a browlift if I have thin hair?

Dr. Weber uses special incisions to perform browlifts on patients who have thin hair or are going bald. He carefully places incisions in areas with a low risk of forming a noticeable scar.

Will my browlift results not look natural?

Dr. Weber provides patients with natural-looking results. He takes great care to make sure he lifts the brow to an appropriate height. Patients do not have to worry about their brow being elevated too much when they choose Dr. Weber as their browlift surgeon.

Do I have to stop smoking to have a browlift?

Smoking interferes with healing processes and prevents patients from achieving optimal results. Patients are advised to stop smoking two weeks before and two weeks after their browlift procedure.

Can I combine my browlift with another procedure?

A browlift may be combined with a blepharoplasty or facelift to completely rejuvenate the face. Patients who are interested in a combined procedure may discuss their options with Dr. Weber at their initial consultation.

Are there ways to maximize my browlift results?

Patients who are interested in maximizing their results are encouraged to follow all of Dr. Weber’s recovery instructions. In addition, the following measures can be used:

  • Always apply sunscreen to the brow when going outside for a prolonged period of time
  • Regularly exercise and eat a well-balanced diet
  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol in excess
  • Patients who receive maximum results are usually those that have a positive outlook and realistic goals and expectations

Is it important that my browlift is performed by a Facial Plastic Surgeon?

Facial Plastic Surgeons who are board certified are the most qualified surgeons to perform browlifts. When choosing a facial plastic surgeon, patients should always look for one that has experience and a documented history of providing patients with excellent results.

Does Dr. Weber have browlift before-and-after photos and patient testimonials?

Dr. Weber has helped countless patients achieve their aesthetic goals using a browlift procedure. He believes that before-and-after photos and positive patient testimonials are great resources to help them make their treatment decision. At initial consultations, Dr. Weber shows patients before-and-after photos of patients who had a similar condition to theirs. Patients who choose to have a browlift go into their surgery knowing what type of results they will receive.

What can I do to prepare for my initial consultation?

Dr. Weber asks that patients bring a list of medications and herbal supplements they are currently taking to their initial consultation. He also encourages patients to think about their aesthetic goals and reasons for wanting to have surgery. Patients who want to bring pictures for Dr. Weber to review may do so.
