Your Recovery & Results

Over time, the effects of gravity can sometimes pull the brow into a lower position, creating a tired or angry look. A brow lift in Washington DC can smooth and tighten the forehead skin, lifting the brow to a more youthful placement while minimizing wrinkles so you look more rejuvenated again.

Dr. Stephen Kay is a board certified plastic surgeon who has helped women and men from in and around the Washington D.C. area and beyond improve their appearance with cosmetic surgery. In addition to brow lifts, Dr. Kay offers many cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and nonsurgical options for the face and body to help you feel and look your best.

Is a Brow Lift Right for You?

Good candidates for a brow lift are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about their results. Women and men who may benefit from a brow lift often have a drooping brow, creating an always-stressed or concerned expression, or may have furrowed lines above the nose.

A brow lift can:

  • Improve frown lines
  • Elevate the eyebrows
  • Smooth out wrinkles above the nose
  • Reposition an overhanging brow
  • Create a fresh, revitalized appearance
  • Help you look as young as you feel

Brow Lift Costs

The costs associated with your brow lift will vary depending on the type of surgical approach Dr. Kay takes, as well as whether other procedures are performed at the same time. The total charges of a brow lift are inclusive of Dr. Kay’s surgical fee, the use of the surgical facility, and the anesthesiologist fees. Dr. Kay and his staff can give you information on cosmetic surgery financing options that can help make your brow lift as affordable as possible.

What to Expect

A brow lift can restore a younger appearance to women and men with overhanging brows or forehead, or nose wrinkles that create a permanently tired, unhappy or angry facial expression. By repositioning the brow and smoothing out wrinkles, a brow lift creates a refreshed, relaxed look instead.

During your consultation, Dr. Kay will discuss your goals for your brow lift with you and answer any questions you may have. He will also explain in detail the specifics of the surgery and recovery so that you’re fully informed about what to expect. If your cosmetic goals are more comprehensive than what is typically covered by a brow lift alone, Dr. Kay may recommend combining a brow lift with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures.

During the surgery itself, Dr. Kay will use general anesthesia or sedation to ensure that you experience minimal discomfort. The exact surgical technique he takes depends on the needs of each individual patient. During your consultation, Dr. Kay can explain the incision placement for your customized procedure.

  • The temporal brow lift, which lifts the outer edges of the brow, is more common in women who would like a more feminine, gently arched brow.
  • Patients who are concerned with an overarching brow may wish to lift the entire brow with an endoscopic brow lift. The procedure can also lift and shorten the forehead, or remove excess forehead skin.

Lastly, Dr. Kay will tighten the skin to smooth out frown lines and horizontal wrinkles across the forehead.

Your Recovery & Results

You should be able to notice a difference immediately following your surgery, but the full results will initially be obscured by swelling. It’s normal to feel some degree of discomfort for the first few days, but a brow lift alone has a relatively short recovery period and you should be able to return to your normal routine after the first week. Dr. Kay will explain any special post-operative instructions during your consultation.

Following your brow lift, you should be able to enjoy a refreshed, rested and alert appearance that delivers a subtle, natural-looking enhancement. Free of the tired or angry effects of forehead wrinkles, frown lines or a sagging brow, you can enjoy a more youthful and refreshed look after your brow lift. You can learn more about a brow lift procedure here or by visiting Dr. Kay’s page on RealSelf.
