Brow Lift ModelSometimes your face conveys unintended messages to others. Droopy eyebrows, sagging upper eyelids, and a furrowed forehead can convey that you are tired, sad, or angry when in fact you feel pretty upbeat about life. A brow lift in Boston, MA can transform your look into one that is refreshed, awake, and lively.

Many women and men turn to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Tantillo for precision brow lift cosmetic surgery in Boston. This facial sculpting procedure provides lasting rejuvenation to the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrow area. While Dr. Tantillo does offer the traditional coronal brow lift method, he prefers the minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift because it provides pleasing results with minimal downtime. A satisfying and successful facial plastic surgery experience in Boston comes from open communication and trust between patient and surgeon. You can meet with Dr. Tantillo in person when you request a consultation with him. His open, personable manner will put you at ease and allow you to focus on having your questions answered and achieving your goals.

What is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, sometime called a "forehead lift," is a surgical procedure that lifts eyebrows, widens upper eyelids, and smoothes forehead creases. For a conventional brow lift in Boston, MA, Dr. Tantillo accesses facial muscle and tissue through an incision made from ear to ear, just behind the hairline. The more modern, less invasive endoscopic method utilizes a small camera that allows the doctor to see under the skin.

The advantages of an endoscopic brow lift include:

  • Smaller incisions, resulting in less scarring
  • Minimized bruising, bleeding, and swelling
  • Reduced likelihood of temporary numbness
  • Less discomfort after surgery
  • Quicker recovery

Patients who are not concerned with sagging eyebrows sometimes choose BOTOX® Cosmetic injections as a temporary, non-surgical alternative to brow lift surgery. Dr. Tantillo can help you determine which procedure will be the best choice for you.

Who is a Candidate for Brow Lift Cosmetic Surgery in Boston?

Ideal candidates are usually in their 40's to 60's, in good health, and have realistic expectations about what their surgery can achieve. Many of Dr. Tantillo's patients combine brow lift with other facial sculpting procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, or eyelid surgery in Boston for a more complete facial rejuvenation.

Recovery & Results

For the first few days after your brow lift, you may have mild to moderate swelling and numbness in the treatment area. Also, it is normal to lose hair around the incisions temporarily. These aftereffects are greatly minimized if your procedure is performed endoscopically. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, including returning to work, within 7 to 10 days after surgery.

Once recovery is complete, Dr. Tantillo's brow lift patients in Boston, MA patients often gain satisfaction and self-confidence from a more rested facial appearance. Many brow lift patients discover that changing the way they look also changes the way they feel about themselves. When you're looking rested and vibrant, you usually can't help feeling that way!
