With age, it’s natural for gravity to take its toll on your skin – particularly the face. When this occurs, the tissue around your forehead and eyebrows can begin to sag, wrinkle and crease. A brow lift is designed to subtly elevate and smooth the delicate skin in this area.
Although it’s possible to have brow lift surgery on its own, it’s very commonly performed with a complementary procedure, such as a facelift or neck lift, for a seamless transformation.

Your brow lift will be done under general anesthesia, which means you will be completely unconscious throughout the experience. During surgery, Dr. Kotis will use one of two techniques: open or endoscopic. Here’s what you need to know about your options:
Results that endure ten years or more
Well-hidden incisions and minimal scarring
During an open brow lift, Dr. Kotis will create an incision near the ear and hidden along the hairline to minimize the appearance of post-surgical scarring. Through that opening, he will reshape the muscles and tissue along the brow line.
Once the underlying structures have been refreshed, he will gently drape your skin over your new facial contours and trim away the excess for a tighter appearance.
With the endoscopic brow lift, Dr. Kotis can achieve many of the same results as the open technique – but with even less scarring. Instead of one long incision, he will make a few short cuts along the forehead.
He will then feed a small fiber-optic camera through one of those openings to improve visibility. Using small surgical instruments, he will reshape aging tissue, reinforce lax muscles and tighten sagging skin.
The length and intensity of your recovery will vary depending on whether you had an open brow lift . However, here’s a general overview of what to expect:
