Forehead and brow wrinkles can mistakenly be interpreted as stress, anger, fatigue or sadness. Additionally, the aging process can cause the eyebrows to descend creating a “heavy” brow. A brow lift from the Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery improves the shape and position of the eyebrows and reduces wrinkles in the forehead. Most patients do not find a brow lift to be particularly painful, and recovery to full activity is usually complete within a few weeks.
We believe you need to be well-informed about the cosmetic procedure in which you are interested, including the pre- and post- operative expectations. At your initial consult, the physician will meet with you about your concerns and personal goals. Feel free to bring in images of looks that you do or don’t like to help us understand your aesthetic tastes and goals. The surgeon will then examine you, and offer her opinion on how to achieve your goals, based on best practices.
Choosing a surgeon is an intensely personal decision. We encourage you to take time to question the physician and her team. We believe the formation of a personal bond is an integral part of the surgery and healing process.

The brow lift can be performed using one of several different techniques. The traditional technique requires a long incision to remove extra skin and to treat the muscles. This is only recommended for certain patients.
The most common technique utilized for brow rejuvenation at the Waldorf Center is the endoscopic brow lift. This is performed with a few small incisions behind the hairline that allow the insertion of a small camera. With this camera, the muscles and tissues can be precisely visualized and treated by the surgeon.
The surgery takes 1 – 2 hours, and is performed with general anesthesia. You will either go home the same day or stay overnight in the hospital depending on your individual needs.
After a brow lift, a person should relax for 7 to 10 days to allow healing. Most people are able to resume a regular work or home schedule after that time period. Most can return to strenuous activity levels in 4-6 weeks.
Facial surgery, as with all surgical procedures, carries a certain amount of risk. It is important that you understand these risks, and the possible complications or adverse events, associated with them. Your surgeon will discuss any risks with you during your consultation and pre-operative appointments.
