BROW LIFT | FOREHEAD LIFT

Aging is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t always mean we have to live with the effects of it. Anti-aging procedures have long been helping patients look and feel their best for decades. Brow and forehead lifts in Dubuque are among the most popular and effective ways to restore your face to its glowing youthfulness. An eyebrow lift, which is also commonly referred to as a forehead lift or a brow lift, is used to correct several signs of aging such as droopy eyebrows, creasing of the forehead, and frown lines as well as drooping skin over the eyelids. An eyebrow lift is often coupled with other common procedures such as facelifts and eyelid surgery for more dramatic age-defying results. Dr. Givens will talk to you about your desires, examine your features, and decide which procedure will give you the most satisfying results. We also offer PDO ThreadLifts to perform non-surgical brow lifts as well.

BROW LIFT AND FOREHEAD LIFT

The Brow Lift (or Forehead lift) repositions the eyebrows and smoothes the forehead to address one of the very first signs of aging, lengthening of the forehead and drooping of the eyebrows. The result is a more youthful and rested appearance to the forehead and upper eyelids and a softening of lines in the forehead and between the eyes.

There are multiple approaches Dr. Givens can take during a forehead or brow lift procedure. During endoscopic surgery, several small incisions are made just behind the hairline. A scope is used to assist in the surgery. Other techniques require longer incisions to lift the brow. Dr. Givens determines the location of the incision after your initial consultation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

for someone to drive you home after surgery.




Should I get an eyelid lift or brow lift?


If you can improve the appearance of your upper eyelids or eyebrows by lifting your forehead with your hand, then you may benefit from a forehead or brow lift. Place the palm of your hand and four fingers across your forehead, about a fingerbreadth above your eyebrows. While looking in the mirror, firmly raise your forehead and then release, to observe the difference. Does this reduce the appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelids? If it does, then you may wish to consider a brow lift. Look again at your upper eyelids with the brow elevated. Do you still have excess skin in the upper lids? Does any part of your eyelid block your vision? If so, you may wish to discuss a blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) with Dr. Givens at Faces Medspa.
