How can a brow lift help?

iStock 1272756549 If you are thinking of getting a plastic surgery procedure for your face, your brow might be the last thing you think of. The brow, the area of the face from the eyebrows up, is often ignored but, just like the rest of the face, it can get lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you really are. In fact, your brow may affect your appearance more than you realize. You may be considering a face lift – read on for reasons why you might also want a brow lift as part of that procedure. 

What is a brow lift?

As we age, the brow can start to look wrinkled and saggy because of years of exposure to the sun, a person’s lifestyle, and other factors. A brow lift is a procedure that removes excess skin and tightens up the skin that remains, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and “toning up” drooping eyebrows. 

What are some brow lift benefits?

A brow lift is a simple way to see dramatic and long-lasting results (the effects of a brow lift can last longer than other procedures, such as Botox injections). Incisions can be hidden under the hairline so that any scarring is very difficult to see. 

 Another benefit is that it has a quick recovery time. There will be swelling and bruising in the upper part of the face, but this will subside in 3 to 4 days and go away within a couple of weeks. Patients can typically go back to work in a week, and strenuous activity should be avoided for a few days. When the swelling goes down, all people will see is younger looking, more toned skin and eyes that look more “open” and more alert. 

When considering a plastic surgery procedure for the face, don’t forget the brow. A brow lift can get rid of wrinkles and “worry lines” in the forehead while toning and tightening the skin. It can make a big difference! Contact Dr. Johnny Mao and Mao Facial Plastic Surgery at the office in Orange, Connecticut. Call (203) 907-0501 for a brow lift consultation today!


Dr. Mao's skill speaks for itself. Checking through his gallery is all the evidence you need. This does not, however show the kindness, gentleness and enthusiasm of this most competent surgeon. I got exactly what I had hoped for; a more youthful look without any evidence of having "work." Dr. Mao was available from start. . . 

I wanted to thank everyone especially Dr. Johnny Mao for the wonderful treatment I received. I had a surgical procedure done to remove a basal cell cancer on my cheek area. Dr Mao and the entire staff were fantastic. The admission process, the surgery and the results, again, fantastic. I can't say enough about everyone. . .

My experience with Dr. Mao has been nothing but pleasant. My first appointment I meet with him and talked about my options and took pictures. He had done morphed photos to show me what my nose could potentially look like. He was very personable he made sure that I was comfortable during appointments and gave. . .

I will always be grateful to you for your thoughtfulness and consideration, also the wonderful work you have done on my face. Your wonderful bedside manner and keeping in touch with me is comparable to none. Your staff is excellent and your work as a family. You made me comfortable the minute I met you. . .
