Correct Frown Lines and Sagging Brows
Most candidates for a brow lift are about 40 to 60 years of age. If you believe you may benefit from this procedure, schedule a consultation at our Bay Area practice. We’ll explain the procedure in detail and determine if you’re a good candidate for the surgery.

A brow lift surgery, whether it’s performed using the traditional or endoscopic technique, takes 1-2 hours using twilight anesthesia or IV sedation. With the traditional technique, we make an incision across the top of the head, just behind the hairline. The forehead skin is lifted so we can gain access to the underlying tissue.
As an alternative to the traditional single incision technique, the endoscopic brow lift surgery in Pleasanton & Danville CA involves 4-5 small incisions behind the hairline. We then insert an endoscope (tiny camera attached to a light) through these incisions view the underlying tissue. In either approach, we selectively weaken the forehead muscles, elevate the tissues, and fixate them in a higher position.
After your brow lift in Pleasanton & Danville CA, we apply gauze and bandages to the treated areas, which are removed in 1-3 days. Stitches are typically removed in about one week. We’ll advise you to keep your head elevated and use a cold compress to minimize swelling. Normal activities may often be resumed in 1-2 weeks.
The results of your brow lift will become apparent as bruising and swelling subsides.
As with any surgery, a brow lift has a degree of risk and uncertainty. Potential complications include infection, asymmetrical results, skin irregularities, atypical scarring and changes in sensitivity. We’ll review risks and safety information in detail during your consultation in the Bay Area.
