Brow Lift Surgery
Brow lift surgery at our Eugene, Oregon, practice offers patients the ability to reshape the drooping found on the outside region of the eyebrow and to slightly elevate the inner eyebrow portion. While many patients are satisfied with the use of neurotoxins such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® to control wrinkles and frowning of the inner brow, others seek a brow lift surgery to elevate the outside brow region. When the eyes are droopy and eyebrows are lower than the orbital rim a blepharoplasty alone will not render the best outcome to open the eyes. Dr. Mark Jewell and Dr. Alireza “Reza” Najafian can accomplish this with either endoscopic brow surgery or a lateral brow lift that has incisions hidden inconspicuously in the temple region. Typically this is seen more in men than women.

Exceptional Plastic Surgeons in Oregon
Dr. Jewell and Dr. Najafian combine artistry and surgical expertise to create customized results tailored to each patient's unique needs.
Am I a good candidate for a forehead lift?
Neurotoxins can work well for women, who have wrinkles on the forehead and frown lines between the eyes, but what makes a person a good candidate for the brow lift procedure is when the eyebrows have sagged below the orbital rim and an upper blepharoplasty alone will not open the aperture of the eye adequately.
How do our surgeons evaluate you for a brow lift?
Dr. Jewell and Dr. Najafian closely evaluate your entire forehead and upper eyelid region, noting the muscle activity as you perform various facial expressions. They examine the position of the eyebrows, amount of excess upper eyelid skin, and height of your hairline. Our surgeons perform either an endoscopic brow lift or a lateral brow lift.
How is an endoscopic brow lift surgery performed?
This technique uses a small pencil-sized video camera connected to a television monitor. The endoscope is inserted into several small, half-inch incisions placed behind the hairline providing your surgeon with a clear view of the muscles and tissues under the forehead. With this technique, it is possible to release the sagging forehead tissues and elevate them. Dr. Jewell and Dr. Najafian use temporary forehead fixation devices called Endotines®, an absorbable type of suspension. Lateral brow lifts involve incisions in the temple region with lateral suspension of the brows. Both procedures may be performed as stand-alone surgery or in conjunction with a facelift.
