Brow Lift in Scottsdale, AZ
As time passes, eyebrows can sag over the upper eyelids and lose their natural shape, causing an individual to appear tired or angry. This unnatural appearance may become increasingly pronounced as the skin on the forehead begins to wrinkle and fold over. Dr. Spies offers a procedure called a “brow lift” to resolve these issues that provides a more youthful and rested appearance. Also referred to as an eyebrow lift or forehead lift, brow lift surgery can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead while elevating the tissues in the brow region to rejuvenate and refresh your appearance.
Dear Dr. Spies,
I wanted to let you know how much I love my “new face”. It just gets better every day. The work you do is wonderful and I felt so secure, knowing that when it was all over I would still look like me- only much better. Your staff of ladies are the best! I always feel so comfortable with them. Really, I can’t thank you enough.
Ps. I hope you had a fantastic birthday
I want to thank you for your excellent mastery on my face. The whole experience was perfect. Thank you also for your gentle patience and great bed side manner, and your welcome and friendly smile.
What Can Be Achieved With Brow Lift Surgery?
The act of furrowing, lowering, or raising the brows creates a temporary appearance that displays your mood, expression, or reaction. But once the eyebrows have begun to sag, certain expressions may become permanent features and leave a tired, angry, or sad expression. A brow lift raises the brows, corrects deep frown lines, and softens wrinkles so that your facial expressions reflect your true mood.
When skin laxity occurs due to aging, redundant skin can collect in the forehead region. Some people develop prominent lines and wrinkles that become a permanent part of the forehead. These patients can benefit significantly from a brow lift, which raises the tissues to correct lines, wrinkles, folds, and sagging. The resulting improvement is a smooth and wrinkle-free forehead.
A Youthful Appearance

Because tissue laxity and wrinkles are symptoms of aging, having these telltale signs in your upper face can date your appearance. Such may be the case even if forehead lines have formed prematurely due to genetics or other factors. A brow lift can eliminate forehead lines and elevate the brows to give you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance that better reflects your age — or, at least, the age you feel you are.
Because Dr. Spies uses the endoscopic brow lift technique, the surgical recovery is much shorter and more comfortable than the recovery after a traditional coronal brow lift. After the surgery, most patients experience mild pain only. Some swelling and bruising will last up to seven days. About one week after surgery, the sutures will be removed, and patients will be able to return to work. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for three to four weeks after the procedure.
Dr. Spies performs endoscopic brow lifts, utilizing small incisions that are made and hidden behind the hairline. Patients should not expect visible scarring or any hair loss after undergoing this procedure with Dr. Spies. Even patients with receding hairlines can expect their scars to be inconspicuous.
Brow lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Because of this, you will not experience any pain during the procedure itself. You may experience some discomfort during your initial recovery due to the bruising and swelling. Over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications can be taken to alleviate any discomfort or tenderness in the upper face.
The cost of your brow lift depends on many factors, including the extent of the surgery and the techniques used. Additional cost factors include anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeon’s fees, pre-surgical tests, and post-surgical dressings. The final consideration of your brow lift or forehead lift cost is whether or not this procedure is being performed in combination with other surgeries like facelift surgery or eyelid surgery.
