Brow Lift

The forehead and brows are often two of the first, and perhaps, most prominent, places on the face to show signs of aging. The upper portion of the face may begin to descend, creating a “heavy” brow which can look like a permanent frown or make the eye area appear tired. To correct the effects of aging for a heavy brow, Dr. Christa Clark can perform brow lift surgery to help Sacramento, Granite Bay, and Roseville men and women rejuvenate and refresh their facial appearance.

Dr. Clark takes the time to get to know you and understand your lifestyle and your needs. She is committed to helping you achieve results you’ll love from your brow lift. Contact us for more information about Dr. Clark or the procedures she offers.

Is a Brow Lift for You?

In most cases, Dr. Clark performs brow and forehead lift in Sacramento on patients with a variety of concerns, including:

  • Sagging of the brow and forehead
  • The appearance of deep wrinkles on the forehead
  • Deep wrinkles of the brow and between the eyes

During your consultation with Dr. Clark, she will explain all of your facial rejuvenation options and which will provide you with the most natural and beautiful results.

Brow Lift Explained

Dr. Clark performs both the traditional brow lift as well as endoscopic brow lift. Both surgical approaches take about the same amount of time to perform: approximately two hours. A brow lift can also be combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as blepharoplasty to create an even greater transformation.

Traditional Brow Lift

When performing a traditional brow lift, there are several approaches Dr. Clark may take. Depending on your needs and cosmetic goals, the incision may be made along the scalp, mid-forehead, or behind the ears. After Dr. Clark creates the incision, any excess skin is removed, thereby tightening the forehead skin and elevating the brows to a natural and attractive position. Once this is complete, the incisions are closed using sutures.

Endoscopic Brow Lift

An endoscopic brow lift utilizes a tiny, wire-like camera to guide long-handled instruments through small incisions. Dr. Clark performs an endoscopic browlift in Sacramento somewhat similarly to how she performs the traditional approach, though the incisions are much smaller and will appear less noticeable once the healing process is complete.

During the procedure, a few small incisions are made along the hairline, which allows the endoscope to be placed beneath the skin. Once the incisions have been made and the endoscope has been put in place, Dr. Clark will smooth the skin and elevate the brows to a higher position. When the desired results are achieved, the incisions will be closed with sutures and the recovery process can begin.

Recovery and Results

After the procedure is complete, you may need a few days to recover. In general, an endoscopic brow lift may lead to a speedier recovery than a traditional brow lift. Most of our patients are able to return to their regular daily activities in about a week following their procedure.
