Brow lift surgery is an incredibly effective way to eliminate vertical lines in between the eyebrows along with fine lines and deep creases across the forehead. Brow lift surgery can also be used to raise drooping eyebrows for a more youthful, alert appearance.

This procedure is often combined with other facial plastic surgery options such as blepharoplasty and facelift to help restore a completely rejuvenated look. During your consultation with board-certified Virginia plastic surgeon Roberta Gartside it can be determined if brow lift surgery alone or in combination with another procedure will best help you reach your goals.

If you would live in Virginia or Washington, D.C. and are considering a facial plastic surgery procedure, please call New Image Plastic Surgery Associates, PLC at 703-742-8004 today to schedule a complementary consultation with Dr. Gartside.

Ideal Brow Lift Candidates

If you are unhappy with the way aging has impacted the appearance of your forehead you may be a good candidate for brow lift surgery. You may also be a good candidate for this procedure if drooping eyebrows have hooded your eyes and produced a sleepy or unattractive look.

As with all facial plastic surgery procedures, nicotine and other toxins in cigarette smoke will interfere with proper healing response. If you are a smoker, Dr. Gartside will recommend that you quit at least six weeks in advance of your brow lift. To help speed recovery and maintain results Dr. Gartside also recommends staying quit after your procedure.

In addition to being a nonsmoker, the best candidates for brow lift surgery will be:

  • In good general health
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Willing to commit to a recovery period
  • Able to closely follow pre and postoperative advice

Good candidates for this procedure should also be aware of other options, helping ensure they are making the best choice for their body. Dr. Gartside will listen to your concerns, assess your problem areas, and discuss all possible treatment options during your initial consultation.
