Brow Lift | Forehead Lift
Upper Facial Rejuvenation Surgery in NYC
A heavy, drooping brow can not only add years to your appearance, but can also cause you to look constantly upset or drowsy. Nobody likes walking into work in the morning and hearing, “You look so tired,” despite a good night’s sleep. The brow lift (forehead lift) procedure is designed to soften forehead furrows and raise the brow to a more youthful position, giving you a refreshed and vibrant appearance.
What is a brow lift?
The brow lift (also called eyebrow lift or forehead lift) cosmetic surgery helps men and women achieve a more youthful, awakened appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is often performed in conjunction with a brow lift to optimize results. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega specialize in the natural rejuvenation of brows and foreheads and providing patients with refreshing results.
Is a brow lift right for me?
Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are highly skilled in cosmetically restoring a younger, smoother forehead and eyebrow area. Patients in good general health who wish to reduce the signs of aging and address sagging or lower eyebrows are good candidates for brow lift surgery. This procedure also addresses creases in the forehead and frown lines that can develop between the eyebrows.
Can I schedule a brow lift?
You may schedule your brow lift with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega after your thorough consultation at New Look New Life in New York.
When will I see the results of my brow lift?
Brow lift results are immediate. As you recover from the procedure and your facial tissue heals, you will continue to see improvement through a smoother brow and refreshed appearance.
Do I need to prepare for a brow lift?
Your brow lift will be performed under general anesthesia, so please follow all of Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega’s pre-surgical guidelines. Avoid blood thinners and NSAIDs, including aspirin, Advil®, ibuprofen, and Aleve® for 10-14 days before and after surgery. You must also not smoke two weeks before and two weeks after the procedure to optimize results and healing.
How is a brow lift performed?
While you are under general anesthesia, your New York cosmetic surgeon will expertly place your incision just within your hairline. With careful attention to natural results, she will essentially lift your forehead skin—and possibly muscles—and reattach it to the bone. As she contours the upper area of your face, she will smooth and tighten the skin to address wrinkles and sagging.
How long does a brow lift procedure take?
Brow lift surgery takes approximately 2-3 hours.
Do I have to stay overnight after a brow lift?
There is no need to stay overnight following a brow lift. Your brow lift will be performed at one of our surgical centers in Manhattan or Brooklyn. After the procedure, you will rest comfortably in our beautiful recovery room before having a relative or friend drive you home.
How long is brow lift recovery time?
You will be advised to rest at home for one week following your brow lift. Elevating your head will help reduce swelling more quickly. Within a few short weeks, you should be completely healed and will have a true picture of your new forehead and brow area.
Are there risks to a brow lift?
Brow lifts are highly safe. As with other surgeries, complications could include poor scarring, infection, or bleeding.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately.
Are brow lifts permanent?
Brow lift results are permanent, but you may notice a slight relaxing of your forehead skin over many years due to the natural aging process.
How much does a brow lift cost?
Your brow lift investment will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.

During your consultation, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega will give you an overview of the procedures that can best help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
