What is a Brow & Forehead Lift?
One of the first signs of aging is in the upper third of the face. At the same time, the height and shape of the eyebrows are essential in facial aesthetics. The eyebrow and the upper eyelids are a unit and should be analyzed together when considering rejuvenation, as a modification of one of its components affects the other. Gender-related and interpersonal differences of the shape and position of the eyebrows should be taken into careful consideration as well.
With age, the forehead and eyebrows may droop. This may involve the entire eyebrow, its head (inner portion), or its tail (outer partion) resulting in loss of the youthful eyebrow contour or asymmetry where one brow is lower than the other. As the brows descend, the eyelid skin, which may already be droopy, sags further, causing more hooding. These changes contribute to a tired or aged appearance that may not reflect the way you feel.
To correct these changes, a brow lift may be indicated.
Endoscopic (Small Incision) Brow Lift Procedure
Various surgical techniques exist to perform the brow lift, with the endoscopic approach being most aesthetically acceptable. During an endoscopic brow lift, five relatively small incisions are placed in the hairline and thin lighted telescopes are used for visualization. This allows the surgeon to safely release all the ligamentous attachments around the brows to allow the necessary tissue elevation. When the inner part of the brow needs to be lifted, small self-dissolving implants called endotines are placed at the upper part of the forehead to lift and secure the eyebrow position. Using these techniques, the eyebrow can be lifted and re-contoured. The results are natural and long-lasting.
This procedure is usually combined with upper blepharoplasty for the best results. The procedure is done in an outpatient setting under sedation or general anesthesia.
What is the Recovery Time?
Recovery time is 1-2 weeks, with most patients able to start driving and resuming normal daily activities in 3-4 days.

Dr. Levin is an excellent doctor. I received Botox injections and fillers under my eyes, cheeks and temples. She was very thorough and took her time explaining and answering all my questions. The wrinkles were smoothed and my entire face looks much more youthful and rested. I would absolutely without hesitation recommend Dr. Levin to all my friends. The results are amazing.
I had surgery with Dr. Levin for droopy eyelids. From the first to the last appointment I felt as if I was her only patient. She spent as much time with me as needed, answered all my questions and alleviated all my concerns. The surgery went very well, and I’m very happy with the results. Everything you would want from a doctor! Highly recommend.
Saw doctor Flora Levin for a Botox consultation. She took her time explaining everything to me, and was very thorough. I scheduled the procedure, and was very happy with the results! She followed up within a week after the procedure to check, and make sure i got the results that i expected. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Levin is extremely knowledgeable in the field of cosmetic surgery and cosmetic rehabilitation. Her diagnosis is astute and her hands are gentle. She is most generous with her time. It is the patient and not the clock that comes first. I have already recommended Dr. Flora Levin to a great many colleagues.
Dr. Levin is an outstanding surgeon. She somehow takes the time to fully understand a patient's goals and expectations. My procedure was over two years ago and I still cant believe how good I look and feel! I would highly recommend her to anyone! PS I was told I look more like the sister of the bride rather than her mom! Thank you, Dr Levin!!!
“Dr. Levin was amazing! She answered all my concerns and thoroughly explained everything to me prior to the procedure and even though I was awake, Dr. Levin’s calm and reassuring presence made me feel perfectly at ease during the relatively painless procedure. My recovery went quickly and smoothly and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the cosmetic result. The change in my look is subtle and natural looking. I am so pleased I chose Dr. Levin to do my surgery. I look refreshed and awake now and I wish I had it done sooner!”
“Dr. Flora Levin is the most caring, professional doctor I have ever encountered. She preformed eyelid surgery on me, and she is a true perfectionist. I am always told how beautiful my eyes are. Thank you Dr. Levin. I think you are wonderful!!!”
Significant "smoker's lines" (I've never smoked a day in my life!) and "elevens," both from a life of expressiveness now come back to haunt me! Met Dr. Levin at Yale and followed to her office in Bridgeport. She's a "doctor's doctor" in my opinion, with brilliant knowledge, wonderful manner, patience and finesse in her work. Absolutely worth it!
Dr. Levin operated on me. I am an R.N. working with plastic surgeons. I was very picky regarding my choice of cosmetic, oculoplastic surgeons. She was the right choice. I couldn't be happier. The office staff was very helpful as well. The atmosphere was welcoming and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Levin.
I am in awe of the artistry of her work and am ecstatic with the results of my surgeries. I felt very comfortable during my office visits because she spent the time with me. I also felt very comfortable during my recoveries. My face used to be crooked and now it is symmetrical. My eyes are no longer hooded and she has given me a wider field of vision. An unintended consequence is that I look years younger and the results are very natural. I am a very happy patient and I highly recommend Dr. Flora Levin without reservation.
