Elevate Your Expression with a Brow Lift

When to Consider a Brow Lift

LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO

Various factors, including genetics, gravity, and aging, can contribute to the appearance of an older-looking face, which may not accurately reflect your actual age or how you feel. The formation of forehead wrinkles can begin in our 20s and 30s and worsen as we age. Additionally, the eyebrows tend to droop over time, resulting in a tired or stern appearance or even an angry expression. However, brow rejuvenation can help alleviate these concerns by elevating the eyebrows and reducing the heaviness of the upper eyelids, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. A brow lift is a highly effective and long-lasting solution to address these concerns.

By elevating your forehead and repositioning your eyebrows,  double-board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky can take years off your appearance, transforming a furrowed brow or sagging upper eyelids into a more rejuvenated look. Our surgical options are customized to your needs and desired outcome to reveal a more pleasant and approachable expression. Our minimally invasive endoscopic brow lift creates results similar to the traditional approach and involves a shorter recovery period with less discomfort, producing pleasing, natural-looking results.

State-of-the-Art Technology + Proven Procedures = Natural Results

How It Helps

The benefits of a brow lift impact more than just your eye area. Besides elevating a drooping brow, an eyebrow lift can result in a more youthful appearance. Forehead wrinkles and creases appear smoother, and excess skin or tissue hanging over the eyes is lifted. Frown lines between the brows can also be addressed. While a forehead lift focuses on the upper face, the overall effect of the procedure reveals a more well-rested facial expression.

BEFORE

What to expect before An Brow Lift

Dr. Diana Ponsky and her highly skilled clinical staff will begin your consultation by asking about your goals and expectations and then discussing any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. After examining, photographing, and analyzing your face, they will discuss potential options, a recommended course of treatment, and outcomes, risks, or potential complications.

DURING

What to expect during a brow Lift

Anesthesia will be administered so that you will be comfortable during the procedure, with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. One of two types of incisions will be made, decided upon in your pre-surgical consult. If the incision is endoscopic, a thin camera and narrow instruments will be placed through a series of small incisions within the hairline. The tissue and muscle beneath the skin are adjusted precisely, correcting visible creases and furrows in the forehead. A brow lift with a hairline incision involves a longer incision through which hair eventually grows. The forehead skin is lifted, and any muscle adjustment can be made under direct visualization. The resulting scar from a coronal or pretrichial brow lift is well concealed by the hair.

AFTER

What to expect after a Brow lift

Depending on the surgical approach, expect to stay home from work for about a week or two. Ice should be applied to your forehead and eyes for the first few days to control swelling. Elevate your head to promote healing, including sleeping on your back at a slight elevation. Some bruising and numbness around your eyes and brow are common, and these effects will subside over time. Avoid unnecessary strain on your body, such as vigorous activity or heavy lifting, for at least two weeks. Suture removal at your first post-surgical visit will be quick and uncomplicated. Plan regular check-ups for 1 year after surgery to monitor results and healing.

I made an appointment for a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Ponsky and within the same day I was scheduling my surgery. Dr. Ponsky and her entire team made the process extremely easy and always took my thoughts and opinions into consideration. The team was especially responsive following my rhinoplasty, easily reachable to answer any questions and concerns I had. I am currently 7 months out from my rhinoplasty and the follow through care during my recovery has been outstanding. Dr. Ponsky truly ensures that my every need is met and that I am 100% happy with my results. Would highly recommend!

Dr Ponsky and all of her staff are incredibly professional and friendly. Ally and Jen, at the front desk, welcomed me with smiles and mints for my 3-year-old. Michael answered all of my questions and was so gentle as we discussed my [unfortunate] nose and potential rhinoplasty. It’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in so I very much appreciated how they handled it. Dr Ponsky herself is friendly, efficient, and skilled. Everything I look for in a medical professional. I did extensive research prior to scheduling my consult with Dr Ponsky so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. I have not regretted my rhinoplasty for a moment. Dr Ponsky took my nose and finessed it down to better fit my face. I wanted it to look real and natural, which is exactly what I got. I so appreciate having the before and after pictures from Lauren, the medical photographer. If you’re on the fence and have the funds, just do it. It’s worth it and there is no doctor more qualified than Dr Ponsky (have you seen her resume??). Thank you to Dr Ponsky and everyone at the office. I love seeing you all when I’m back for follow-ups!

Dr. Ponksy is truly a a miracle worker! Her work is truly amazing! I had rhinoplasty just a few weeks ago. I am so in love with my new nose already! It was such a quick recovery, and not painful at all. Dr. Ponsky provides instructions to follow as well that helps speeds things up. The office staff is so accommodating, and you can text them with any concerns/ questions. They will answer you right away! Michael and the front desk go above and beyond to ensure you have the best experience. After years of wanting rhinoplasty and consultations with other surgeons in the area, Dr. Ponsky is the only way to go! High recommended 10/10

Dr. Ponsky performed my rhinoplasty and I could not be happier with the results. After many years of debating of whether to do it or not, I finally made the decision. From the initial consultation to after the surgery, Dr. Ponsky and her team have been nothing but caring and supportive through the whole process. The procedure itself was smooth and with very little to no pain. It almost felt like a head cold for about 3 days but after that, I felt great. They really do a great job at preparing you for it weeks in advance and guide you through the whole thing. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you will be in great hands with Dr. Ponsky, she is kind and one of the best at her job!
