  2. Minimally invasive brow lift options include a laser lift and fat grafting – both have minimal downtime.
  3. Non-surgical improvement can also be obtained with filler injections lasting up to one year.


This 28-year-old had a sad and anxious expression since her early teens, due to the position of her eyebrows. Tight attachments to the temporal fascia and low outer brows made this appearance hard to disguise. She had a temporal brow lift with a small incision within the hairline to correct this concern. The subtle and natural-looking result is just what she was looking for in a brow lift.

    I need a quick fix for an upcoming event. If I have a filler type brow lift, what is the maximum down time I can expect?

    Unless you are taking blood thinners, maximum downtime might be a long weekend. There is an instant contour improvement. You may have minor bruising and swelling. This is a good option for minor asymmetry.

    I'm looking for a long term change but the idea of the old style brow lift is scary. I don't want to look surprised, and I do not want a numb forehead. Options?

    Above: 73 year old with asymmetry and aged skin. Below: She did not want a traditional brow lift. We combined fat transfer with a laser lift in order to give her a dramatic improvement with no skin excision.

    My eyebrows are not terrible, but I'm looking for a youthful and open appearance without looking operated upon. How can I get the best result?

    A temporal brow lift will give a lateral lift without creating a “surprised” appearance. If your upper lids are droopy, a simple skin excision can give you a less tired look.

    Left: 49 year old felt her eyes looked tired. Right: 6 weeks post temporal brow lift and upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

    I have crepey upper eyelid skin and brows that are a bit low. My budget is tight. How can I get the most bang for my buck?

    You might consider a laser lift. Usually, the best benefit is achieved when the entire face and forehead is treated.

    Above: 51 year old with crepey eyelids and low brows. Below: 6 weeks following erbium laser lift. No skin was removed.

    This procedure has about 7-10 days of downtime, but no activity restrictions. This corrective treatment is a once in a lifetime procedure, with periodic maintenance about once a year. Because there is no incision, there is no numbness and no risk of a funny look.
