ABOUT BROW LIFT SURGERY
If you're growing unhappier by the day with your maturing appearance, it's important to know that your eyebrow and forehead area can be rejuvenated simply with small, hidden incisions made behind the hairline. A surgical brow lift (also called a browplasty or forehead lift) is a popular cosmetic procedure that produces a raised brow appearance and allows patients to have a quick recovery. A droopy brow often has the effect of making you look tired and angry, even when you're not. To address this, an endoscopic brow lift surgically improves upon a sagging brow to give you a renewed appearance. This outcome is accomplished by removing excess skin from the forehead and then raising the eyebrows. Our skilled team of qualified plastic surgeons have performed countless brow lifts on both women and men to create a younger look for patients at our Tacoma, WA office. Injectable wrinkle relaxers and fillers can also be used in conjunction with brow lift surgery at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa to further elevate your results and create an overall softer and smoother look.

"Fantastic office and doctor - Dr. Pratt and his staff are truly amazing. I can not imagine a better doctor or staff. I had a minimal incision brow lift performed by Dr. Pratt.

I highly recommend Dr. Pratt and his office"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jul 05, 2014
"First class experience - I had heard a lot about Dr. Pratt through my friends, who had surgery with him previously. Anyone that I know that has surgery with him has been exceedingly happy with their results. Because of his superb reputation, I met with him to discuss some facial aging concerns. During my initial consultation, everyone in the office was incredibly pleasant and professional. His office staff is warm, friendly, and caring. Dr. Pratt answered all of my questions, and I thought he had a great bedside manner. After meeting with him, I booked a surgery with him, which included a facelift, browlift, laser resurfacing, and eyelid rejuvenation.My experience with Dr. Pratt's surgery center was equally exceptional. His anesthesiologist and nursing staff were fantastic and delivered incredible pre- and post-operative care. Their facility is first class.My recovery was uneventful, and I thought the post-operative instructions were clear and concise. I am so happy with my results, as they are very natural in appearance, without any visible scars.As a nurse, and patient of Dr. Pratt's, I recommend him highly. He is a very talented surgeon, and has a wonderful, warm bedside manner"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jul 04, 2014
"Life Changing Experience! - Dr. Ehret listened to me and understood what I was trying to accomplish. I'm in my 65th year of life but, it feels like my 45th and I wanted to look the part. Dr. Ehret helped make that happen. I had an eyebrow lift, my eyes refreshed and a breast lift all at the same time. I know it was a little much at one time but, I am so happy I did it! I finally did something for myself. Every visit Dr. Ehret was really interested in how I was feeling and if I had any questions or concerns. The office staff has been wonderful as well. The office even has products available to help minimize scaring and a Medical Spa next door. I love having it all in one place, what a fantastic team!"- V. / RealSelf / Sep 01, 2020

When looking in the mirror, do you appear tired or angry? Do you notice frown lines between the brows? Are you bothered by a drooping brow? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then receiving brow lift surgery at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa could be a great solution. This procedure is great for both men and women because different techniques can be employed to create an ideal shape and position of the eyebrow for both sexes. It also can be performed alongside other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as eyelid surgery, laser skin resurfacing, facelifts, and neck lifts. When you schedule a consultation with one of our skilled surgeons, they will give you honest and informed advice regarding your ideal treatment options. If a brow lift is wanted and deemed necessary, we can schedule your procedure.
Prior to surgery, anesthesia will be administered to the patient. This procedure can be performed with either general anesthesia or local anesthesia and some form of sedation, depending on the extent of the surgery. At our Tacoma, WA practice, the technique we use to perform brow lifts is the endoscopic technique because of its lower level of invasiveness and decreased presence of scarring. An endoscopic brow lift is a more modern technique, and it often allows for a shortened recovery time. To perform your surgery, your plastic surgeon will place several tiny incisions into your hairline and then insert an endoscope. This endoscope will move down to the brow area, which will give our team a clear image. Through the camera of the endoscope, the brow tissue is suspended. From this point, stitches will be used to lift the brow in its higher position.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Recovery following brow lift surgery can vary. Overall, you likely will experience some bruising and swelling in the upper face near the brows and possibly around the eyes. However, using cold compresses can help decrease these effects. We advise our patients to sleep upright for 3 – 4 nights following surgery. It's important to avoid any movement or activities that can cause stress to the face. The average recovery time from this procedure is about 2 – 3 weeks. Results from browplasty often can be seen immediately. Once you have healed completely, you will observe that your face and expressions appear softer and more alert. You will also see a noticeable reduction in fine lines and sagging in the upper half of the face.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does a brow lift cost?
The cost of brow lift surgery will vary based on the type of anesthesia used and whether or not your procedure is paired with another treatment, such as an injectable. Once your surgical plan has been created during your consultation, an estimate of costs can be discussed. A member of our team can also go over payment methods and help you find low-interest financing so your surgery is easier to afford. For some procedures, our office accepts medical insurance. If you're using insurance to cover a portion of the costs, we can ascertain your coverage and determine the remaining amount owed.
Do I need a brow lift or facelift?
Your need for either a brow lift or full facelift will depend on where your skin sags and what outcomes you would most like to achieve. You should candidly discuss your concerns with your surgeon so we can help you decide what is best for your unique situation. Many patients arrive at our office thinking they want a facelift only to discover that they really require a brow lift or vice versa. With their combined experience, our skilled plastic surgeons can confidently help you develop your treatment plan and provide you with the results you want.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
There are many nonsurgical treatment options you could consider, like laser skin resurfacing and various injectables (including BOTOX and Juvéderm) that can produce mild improvements in your overall look. However, a surgical brow lift is better if you desire significant improvements and longer-lasting results. During your consultation, your surgeon will go over both your surgical and nonsurgical options so you can decide which is best for you.
Will my results look natural?
When you choose Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa to produce your results, your brow lift outcome will look natural. We will help develop your treatment plan to suit your unique needs and goals. When you receive a customized treatment plan tailored to you, you will look refreshed and younger rather than tight or frozen. During your surgery, our team will focus on removing excess skin. The remaining skin and tissue will be smoothed so your results don't limit your facial expressions or lift your eyebrows too high.
