Brow Lift Surgery in Princeton, New Jersey

Many individuals decide to have a brow lift done because they’re unhappy with how angry, sad, or tired their “resting face” appears. This procedure has the ability to provide a more refreshed and pleasant expression. Dr. Jill Hazen’s brow lift procedures in Princeton, NJ leave patients feeling more confident and youthful. 

What is a brow lift?

A slumped or furrowed brow can create an aged, tired, or irritated expression that can keep others from seeing the youthful energy you feel inside. When wrinkles or sagging skin on the brow is stopping you from looking as young as you feel, a brow lift is often the best option.

What a brow lift can accomplish

  • Lifts the eyebrows
  • Tightens excess forehead skin
  • Reduces crow’s feet
  • Smooths forehead lines
  • Provides a refreshed, friendlier, younger-looking appearance

What does a brow lift surgery entail?

A brow lift is typically an outpatient surgery performed under local or general anesthesia, and takes about 1 to 2 hours. Dr. Hazen will create small, inconspicuous incisions along the hairline on either side of the forehead.

The brow is then gently moved upward to reverse drooping skin caused by natural collagen depletion, and the skin will be tightened. A brow lift can be done on its own, or it can be combined with another procedure (such as blepharoplasty) for enhanced results. 

Recovery and results

Brow lift patients will require about a 1 to 2 weeks of recovery to allow the area to heal and the swelling to subside before returning to work or any strenuous activity. You may also be required to wear a surgical garment for the first few days. Mild swelling, numbness, and discomfort to the treated area are to be expected, but typically dissipate within 7 to 10 days. You should remain relatively inactive for the first few days following the procedure to reduce any excess swelling. By four months, you should be completely recovered. Visible results from a brow lift can begin to appear after three weeks, and will continue to improve in the weeks and months following treatment.
